lower 70's in many spots. if you didn't get there you likely made it to the the upper 60's. we've seen temperatures fall a couple of degrees in the last hour, as that sun is getting lower much sooner this time of year. and here's your rainfall amounts at the airports around the state, on average you put them altogether you average out about a quarter of an inch of rain this morning, a little more or less depending on exactly where you were in the mille terrain, maybe seeing a little more in some spots. clouds have cleared away and it's going to be a mainly clear evening for a w. to reverse and push back in during the overnight hours and that could bring a few rain showers or sprinkles at times overnight tonight. we'll take everything we can get. there goes the rain from this morning, one last look at it, if you haven't seen a radar image from today. you can see how clear it is for the moment. but what we're watching is this, seemingly harmless system there and it is harmless, it could be very beneficial to us, but it sits there and spins, the upper part of the jet treatment, a
in this case it will drift southward for the next couple of days. and as it gets closer and closer to us, it begins to influence our weather especially by the time we get to friday. so sitting and spinning here, and slowly pushing in our direction just in time for the weekend, it appears. bringing the chance of scattered showers. i mentioned the clouds pushing back in from the east overnight and the winds turn to the northeast as well, bringing in a cooler wind for tomorrow, meaning it will be a much tomorrow in the upper 50's and lower 60's. in the afternoon there could be breaks of sun, particularly in the northern part of the state, sprinkles or a shower or two possible through tomorrow. thursday looks to be the driest day of the next several to come. there could still be a spot shower or sprinkle in the southern part of the state, but most of us should stay dry if not seeing sunshine, and closer to friday some of the showers start to come up especially in the afternoon. thanks to that area of low
skies clouding up and temperatures drifting down into the lower 50's, maybe a shower or two, but then tomorrow we'll see plenty of clouds, look at those temperatures hovering in the upper 50's to lower 60's for highs, and then we'll see perhaps some sunshine late in the afternoon tomorrow or as we head into thursday as well. with some dryer conditions thursday, though we stay on the cool sigh. tonight's lows in the 40's to theth mid 50's everywhere else. look for clouds and especially in southern and southeastern new hampshire, the chance for some fog, drizzle and mist. look at the high for tomorrow, they look like overnight lows compared to what we're used to, mostly cloudy, sprinkles or drizzle possible during the day tomorrow, the farther north and west you made, the better the chance of afternoon sunshine and a sneak peek to thursday, that will be the dryer of the days, some sunny breaks possible in the afternoon. that's our best chance for another dry day with almost no
shower or sprinkle. friday afternoon, rain showers start to return. jamie loves that. and into the weekend too. we really need this rain, but the timing, well, it could be this weekend, so we'll have to wait and see. tom: friday night football. >> coming up in sports, jeff gordon, we're going to go one on one with him before we say
