washington today. let's check in with mike haddad to see how long the snow will continue. mike: certainly a wintery scenario up north, no question about that. southern parts of the state blustery and chilly today, but no snow at good part of the day. a couple of mixed showers hit a few communities. right now on radar things beginning to wind down. snowing like crazy over eastern and central maine wevment have picked up three inches of snow in twin mountain, anywhere from a one to four inch accumulation, great north woods through the rest of the white mountains. from berlin points south and southwest into the heart of the white mountains, still some lingering snow. that will tend to taper off in the next two to three hours with an additional i believe in some spots. temperature wise, back in the mid 30's up north. on average the snow has been meeting on pavement, but some of the back roads up north and some of the passes through the mountains a little on the slick side. so allow extra time if traveling out and about in the north
5:09 pm
as the roads will likely turn snow covered or slushy if they are not already. southern sections in the 40's. 30's overnight, a few upper 20's for some. what about a warmup in time for the weekend? we'll look at that possibility, straight ahead. josh: now to our commitment 2016 coverage. democratic presidential candidate hillary clinton back in new hampshire, making several stops across the state. you're looking live at some pictures in dover where he's evening. kristen carosa has for and joins us live from newsroom. reporter: josh, this is hillary clinton's 15th trip to the granite state state, she advocated for small business, discussed women's issues and addressed the recent shootings in california. democratic presidential candidate hillary clinton spent the morning learning about a small business in nashua. >> i said i want to be the small business president. reporter: from there it was onto a women's economic opportunity summit in manchester.

5:11 pm
employers to justify paying men and women different wages for the same work. reporter: and that's something she says sets her apart from other candidates. >> it's very difficult with the republicans to promote this idea of equal pay for equal work. they don't believe in it, they don't support it. and honest to goodness, i don't know who they spend their time talking to. reporter: secretary clinton is ending her day in dover right now with her 16th town hall meeting, we'll have much more on that tonight at 10:00 and 11:00. kristen carosa, wmur news 9. josh: john kasich has a town hall in salem at 6:306789 and carly fiorina is picking up new hampshire endorsements. new supporters are signing onto the former h.p. c.e.o. jean: let's turn to the traffic watch, see how things are moving on the roads.
