with a light coating to a half an inch of snow. up in central and northern areas of the state just truly starting to see the light snow develop. you'll notice it is mainly rainfall farther to the south and east. any sort of rainfall that is leftover with the rain dropping closer should be giving way as temperatures continue to cool. the cooler air in the mid levels come down with the precipitation and change over any rain drops to snowflakes. that's what has been happening now. it is all snow. it will be wet with temperatures in the upper 20's to mid 30's. snowfall rates could be an inch per hour at times for areas of south eastern parts of the state. beyond that the farther west you go and the farther north you go, we're looking at a much lighter version of the system with a light coating to a few inches of accumulation at best. the snow hasn't gotten going yet. coating. the heaviest portion will be closer to the center of circulation
that means the most focused snow could give you anywhere between 4:00 to 7:00 inches of snow. low to mid 30's will be the temperatures when it falls. you'll notice a certain back edge by 11:00. that continues to go from of upper valley. that slides quickly to the east by 2:00. by 3:00 or 4:00, we're looking at a brightening sky across the area. the travel problems that we'll have out there in areas won't be as prevalent by the time we get toward the afternoon. from there, partial sunshine for both days over the weekend. could be a couple of snow showers late saturday or early sunday up in the north country. maybe a flurry elsewhere. that's it through monday as it stands now. all eyes to the west for the next system possible situation which is centered toward tuesday. if anything, the trends have been to pull back and move that system a little farther to the south which would leave
snow snowfall. things change as you get closer. looking at a general three to five inches with less than three inches in the north western half of the state. there could be a couple of spots, even some spots that haven't changed over to snow yet that may have the potential with the most out of this. from there, we're looking at the chance of snow showers on sunday. then the colder air comes back in. this more like winter as we get in to the next seven days. we're looking at snow possible and again the keyword there for tuesday is possible. it may just be some light snow and flurry activity moving through for the primary day and getting colder for the second half of next week. we're going to earn the rest of the winter. this is the pattern. sean: a lot of people saying i haven't seen anything else.

and have all of the voters tuning in. reporter: fiorina appealed to be included. so far abc newing, which is hosting the debate, has rejected her calls. in washington, nikole killion. erin: thank you. watch the debate here live or on our web site at wmur.com. sean: jeb bush brought out one of his biggest supporters at an event in derry. for the first time ever, barbara bush joined her

candidate tracker in the politics section of the web site. sean: new poll numbers give us a better idea of where they stand ahead of the primary. the wmur cnn poll shows that donald trump is maintaining his lead both now and before the iowa caucuses. marco rob is second. ted cruz saw a one point bump from 12% to 13% following his win in iowa. john kasich is at 12%. jeb bush is at 10%. chris christie lost some support following the caucuses. support from fiorina and ben carson stayed the same. erin: hooksett police are asking for your help in tracking down two men that broke in to a gun store and stole four firearms. it happened early wednesday morning. the suspects were captured on surveillance. the shop owner says they came prepared. he says the men had bulk
after breaking in, the burglars made off with handguns and semi-automatics. he's worried about the weapons being on the streets. >> for us, security is paramount. safety of the public is paramount. just like any gun shop owner. it is even more troublesome for us when something like this happens. because you go. you worry about people and things that can happen when they are out there. you try to mitigate this as much as possible really. erin: the owner says the guns are worth more than $2,000. anyone who recognizes the suspects is urged to call hooksett police. sean: a new system at the portsmouth naval ship yard is causing some problems for the neighbors. the ship yard launched a new radio communication system. it is using a frequency that interferes with local garage door openings. one pair of neighbors say they got suspicious when both of the remotes stopped working. >> my wife said the clicker didn't work when
car after leaving. i fixed the door by replacing the batteries. then my wife said that the people next door's garage wouldn't open. i figured, well, that's odd. at the same time both of our garage door batteries go bad. sean: the problem with the communication system is not unique. it has been used at other military facilities. similar systems were reported. homeowners may have to can the company to have their door openers reprogrammed. in the meantime, you might have to go manual. erin: at least they figured out what's going on. a shocking incident. an 8-year-old boy tried to rob the place at gun point. sean: and the manager of a fast food restaurant falls victim to a bizarre hoax. how someone convinced him to break out the windows in the building. kevin: snow continuing to spread. heaviest before pulling away. more changed expected

she didn't realize it. >> when i grabbed my hushes it was light. i knew i was missing something. where is my gun? i hope jayden don't have my gun. sean: police took the boy in to custody. no charges have been filed against him or his mother. erin: wendy's in arizona was the target of a bizarre hoax. someone called and convinced the manager to break out the windows. it insubjected the manager to turn on the fire suppression system. it told everyone to evacuate by breaking the windows. determine if this is connected to a similar hoax. an uber driver picked up an exciting fare in new orleans. the four men were all members of the popular rap group, naughty by nature. the driver, dale latino,
that another uber driver refused to pick them up. the group was in town for a concert. during the show, latino got a special surprise. >> i was already planning on going to the show. when i went to the show, i'm there with everybody else. they just signal and pull me out of the crowd. they thanked me in front of hundreds of people. >> pulled him up on stage. we gave him a hoody. >> gave him some beer. >> he said he almost shed a tear, y'all. erin: they set him up. latino says he looks up to the band. they are inspiring him to pursue his love of music. sean: i always thought of myself as being naughty by nature. not because i hate you though. i thought that was good. bruins took on the sabres.

the way i would go about it. sean: you'll skip the marathon part? erin: i think i'll just travel around the world. sean: that's tough. some people in texas are getting around on a new mode. it is called the e unicycle. one said it takes some balance. it can travel around 12-14 miles per hour. the cost is about $800. they sure look fun. erin: they look great. it would be difficult morning with all of the sean: it could be.
for the potholes. kevin: i think even in the best of conditions i'm a hospital visit waiting to happen on one of those. sean: that's why we're going to day. suit. that looks like it is all sorts of trouble. we start off with rainfall closer to the shoreline. inland. pease just a couple of the switch over. the gradual changeover occurs in far south eastern areas over the next hour or two. it has been light snow. a half inch in the swanzey area. an eighth of an inch north of keene. while we continue to see the light snowfall. you'll notice the roadways still wet. the temperatures still above the freezing mark way. you need a good burst of snow for that to really start to accumulation. that's the potential in some areas for over an inch of snow per hour through about 11:00 or lunchtime as the height
make its way through and the closest pass from the area of low pressure morning. it will start to pull away. the snow will start to wind down in to the afternoon. we're on the real northern and north western fringes of the system. over six inches of snow likely from boston south. it may make its way to the border with the wet snow continuing to come down. it will not be a fluffy temperatures either side of the freezing mark as it comes down. snow continues to pick up this morning. it truly just started in the farther northern areas. there are the burst of one inch per hour. back northeastward and in our direction. temperatures above the freezing mark across a good part of south eastern areas and down near the freezing mark. you start to the get to
snow gets heavier and it starts to accumulate the liquid that's been melting even if they've been treated may start to form in to a glaze of ice. this is all stuff in science of the roadways type situation that you have to bear in mind if you are going to be traveling any length of distance across the state this morning. temperatures later on by 2:00 or 3:00 essentially near the freezing mark. the snow heaviest late morning and then starting to taper off from west to east rather rapidly. some breaks of sun by late in the day for western areas of the state. falling in to the teens and 20's later on tonight. partly sunny skies. there may be a couple of snow showers saturday night or early sunday. may be a flurry around for southern areas. that will be the leading edge of colder air that starts to make its way back in. that will be in place for the next possible system which is centered around tuesday. tale still to be told on that. a general three to five inches of snow for the south eastern half of the state. there may be just a
massachusetts that see locally over five inches of wet snow out of the system with lesser amounts farther back to the north and west. as i mention, partly sunny skies for the weekend. highs in the 30's. maybe a couple of flurries or a snow shower late saturday night. colder air making its way in. the other question mark in the forecast is tuesday. the maps have really kind of tried to be a little bit gun shy on exactly what we're going to see out of the system. they've been pulling back. that's what we see every 24 hours as the maps come in. kind of a back and forth. erin: i love how you are celebrating national weatherman's day with a snowstorm and tomorrow and the next day you are going to jump in to the ocean. kevin: weather temperature is 42. why not. sean: good luck. we asked you to tell us which jewelry store are the best.
