5:01 pm
you see. we're going to take a look at future cast, but i'll tell you, it will be minor nuisances tomorrow, shouldn't be all that bad if you're traveling. more coming up later. josh: the day before thanksgiving is typically the busiest travel day of the entire year. new hampshire highways saw a steady flow of traffic today. shelley walcott spoke to some people trying to make it to their holiday destinations and she joins us from the hooksett rest stop with more on that. there's lots of traffic out on the highways this evening. but the people that we spoke with today say it's actually moving pretty smoothly. of course today is the day that millions of americans are heading to their holiday destination. the department of transportation says the most crowded time on the roads is actually right now. then it will be busy again throughout the day on sunday. the d.o.t. is asking people to keep an eye on the roads tomorrow, though.

5:05 pm
a good thing and we're finding out it is a good thing on both security effectiveness and efficiency. reporter: winter storms in the middle of the country could mean delays or cancellations at airport as cross the nation, but since so many people are traveling by car this weekend, slippery roads could bring traffic to a krawm. departures are staggered. but everybody seems to come back at the same time. so sunday is expected to be the busiest day of the holiday weekend. the only way to avoid the crowds is to travel on thanksgiving, that's exp busy of the next few days. jean: you can get current traffic conditions, live radar and the latest forecast anywhere you go, just downlow the wmur app from the i tunes or google play stores. josh: tonight the state attorney general's office is investigating a serious assault that occurred in the town of went worth. police could be seen at two locations today, but they are

5:17 pm
shining. the high temperature in concord was 41. the average 45, so a little below average, not too far and hard to believe it, but the report high for today is 73 degrees from back in 1931. the win has calmed quite a bit. winds from 6 to 16 miles per hour, so that win will continue to calm a little more as we go through the evening hours as well. now to your current temperatures and as y cooler than our highs, but still a seasonably chilly, either side of 30 degrees in northern new hampshire and mid to upper 30's everywhere else. get ready for those kinds of temperatures the next couple days. clouds did hang around in the mountains today, but they're retreating now. so we will see a period of clear skies tonight. anyone traveling this evening,
5:18 pm
allow easy passage of the roads at least from the weather point of view. can't do much about the traffic. there's a look at the weather system to our west, this is going to dominate our weather the next several days. so get ready for on and off again conditions that could interfere a little bit, but i think a good portion of the state sees rain over snow, especially the southern half of the state over the next few days, and the warmth, where is it, it's down south and even down south to their normal standard. sites a colder outbreak around much of the nation. not deep arctic outbreak but certainly cool. everywhere else around the nation is fairly calm. and over the next few days as it heads toward us we are really what it is and all it is out there in terms of the weather. pacific northwest sees a few
5:19 pm
here, we've got clear skies this evening, but clouds thickening up overnight and early morning. here's the tricky part, tomorrow, very spotty precipitation. you could see a passing snow flake or two anywhere in the morning, shouldn't be a big deal at all. so much of the travel should be just fine. tomorrow afternoon you could see mixed showers popping up. most of them though likely wait until late. this is 6:00 and you notice rain snow in northern new hampshire, off and on through the overnight hours of thursday into friday. of course this is black friday and you're going to see mixed rain and snow showers around off and on through the day on friday and into part of saturday as well. so you can imagine that's going to cause some delays or minor disruptions here and there, but a lot of it will be in the form of rain over snow, the keepings will be in the mountains and parts of central new hampshire.
