are on the way and eventually some showers, too, overnight and tomorrow. a look at the high temperatures today, we rang in fall at about 10:00 a.m. and of course this afternoon it felt like nothing like fall. 85 dress was the high temperature in concord, 84 in manchester, 82 in jaffrey and even up north, temperatures were in the upper 70's. it was a warm day. well above average which is 70 degrees for this time, not a record breaking day, though, which was 92 degre in 1970. certainly this was a warm one for almost late september standards. here are the temperatures right now, across the state we have got 50's north, 60's from the lakes region and points to the south. 66 in nashua. as we go through the next couple of days here, the temperatures are going to come crashing down. if you're looking through that autumn crisp cool feel, it's coming, you just got to wait one more day.
temperatures bottoming out near 62 for a high temperature on sunday. so what's happening between then and now to get so cool? a cold front, of course, it's about to move through. you have scattered showers already moving into the north country, the clouds are starting to fill in as well. that will happen in earnest as we go through the overnight here as the cold front starts to approach. behind it, some cooler and drier air. it's going to finally feel a lot more like fall here is the latest drought monitor. this report came out earlier this morning. you can there really isn't much change, still the extreme doubt conditions continue into nashua and portsmith. less of a problem in the northern part of the state because you guys have simply had more rain than the rest of us in southern new hampshire. manchester is still down a good 16 to 17 inches for the year. that's a big problem as we head into, of course, the winter season here.
overnight tonight after midnight really a chance of showers for the notches northward. we are seeing that in the far northern regions of the state. you see this line try to make its way make its way into southern new hampshire as we get in the afternoon. some of us may not come away with a drop tomorrow. i'm hopeful we'll see a couple of scattered showers even in southern new hampshire around the mid-day hours. the clouds clear, tomorrow night for friday night football games, good to go and saturday, back to sunshe. weekend ahead of us here. overnight 50's and 60's. 55 in concord, about 60 degrees in manchester. here is the school day forecast. so i would probably have your kiddo in rain gear, have it available tomorrow morning, especially if you live in the north country and then it's possible that we get a few more showers into the afternoon. the race forecast up in loudon this weekend, sunny and much cooler. by the way, it was 90 degrees the last time we had a race in
61 there. 30-degree difpks from the last time they were racing in new hampshire. now next week, cool, still in the 60's and still dry, no big change in terms of wet weather which we desperately need. tom: the drives like 61 better than 90. hayley: yes, it doesn't affect the pavement as mitch and not as sweaty, too. tom: let's go to jason king with the sports. jamie: the patriots having their way with the texans and

my prescription costs keep going up. it's more expensive every year. it would be a lot cheaper to buy my medication from canada. kelly ayotte voted to block consumers from buying safe medicines from canada. and voted against lower cost generic drugs. kelly ayotte gets all that money from the big drug industry. hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions. when you take all that money it just changes you. dscc is responsible for the content of this advertising. when i first found out that carl had been using heroin on and off for a year. i immediately thought not my son. i found him in his bathroom with a syringe still in his hand and that was the worst day of my life. annie kuster is leading the fight regarding this opioid epidemic. she's trying to do everything she can to get laws changed. so this doesn't happen again.

basketball. max wasn't on anyone's radar as a junior because he was just learning the game. now after a full off-season of hard work, he is one of the top tied enters in the state. his size and athleticism makes him a big-time threat for the panthers and a prospect for college recruiters. >> it's completely a different game for metcht i went to camps pretty much every weekend in the summer. it's a lot faster and stronger. i love pra complaining about practice. i think all of us enjoy practice for the most part. coaches make it fun while working us hard. jason: the annual new hampshire tackles hunger campaign, 15 high school football games on friday night. all are participating. bring an item or cash donation. some schools are offering free admission if you bring food to the football games.
