5:21 pm
issue. but nonetheless when ever you see a few sprinkles or light showers with those temperatures near 32, you do have to watch it, again that would be early on thursday morning. as for highs tomorrow, very close to where we were today, but with some developing partial sun a little more than today of course will be back about three or four degrees higher, so 40 up north, same story in the lakes region, upper valley about 42 or 43. same story in concord and a bit above that points south and southeast. once we get beyond then, temperatures will start climbing, we're back into the mid to upper 40's, possibly with enough partial sun near 50 by the end of the week and weekend. partial clearing tonight, chilly, teens and 20's, but seasonably so. for tomorrow, clouds and sun, lower 40's. then upper 40's for the end of this week. couple of spot showers we'll have to watch early thursday morning in case the temperatures are near freezing.

5:24 pm

5:25 pm
than one in 12 adolescents in the u.s. meet current exercise guidelines and that makes american kids among the least active in the world. one of the main reasons is a lack of active opportunities at school, even though nearly half of the physical activity the researchers recorded occurred in school proportionately kids spent less of their time active in school than they did at other places throughout the day. more studies are finding that kid who start their lives more complicated health problems as adults, so it's a call for parents to work with their schools to put more exercise into their lives, in school and out. with this medical minute, i'm dr. timothy johnson. jean: plus it's fun. coming up in the next half-hour, congress takes its first major look at a proposed american they're would create the world's largest beer company. why one company executive says this deal makes sense. josh: t mobile under

5:29 pm
prudent to close the establishment. reporter: those three violations, cooked chicken and steak below the proper holding temperature of 140 degrees. and an employee working despite being sick. the store's license was temporarily suspended. >> it was a precautionary effort that if there was a question of illness we wanted to make sure that the establishment was set up properly and managed properly so that this would not be a -- reporter: they believe the illnesses are the result of norovirus and not linked to the e-coli outbreak linked to its west coast restaurants. and again the final result of testing just came back, confirming norovirus in that restaurant. 52 people in nine other states were sickened by e-coli become tier yeah after eating at chipotle restaurants in recent months. i'm shelley walcott, wmur news 9. josh: now both sides in the next trial of former patriots player

small accident just down the road in bedford that's causing this delay. josh: a proposed american they're would create the world's largest beer company is under screw scrutiny from congress. anheuser-busch executive testified in front of a senate jury subcommittee today advocating for that merger. critics say the joining would curb competition and cripple smaller brewers if it's approved. jean: laser displays are the newest holiday lighting fad, they make decorating happen in a snap. but they are posing a damager to pilots, according to the f.a.a. reporter: red, green and blue lasers projected onto homes are a cheaper way to decorate this year. but they're also a problem for pilots of passing planes. that's according to the f.a.a.
5:32 pm
who buys one of these little devices is putting it up with even the first thought that it might have enough power to hit an aircraft in the sky. reporter: you can buy these laser lights at walgreens, target and other department stores, they'll cost about 40 bucks or so. american airlines pilot reported to the f.a.a. that he was flying into d.f.w. on thursday night and saw lights from these lasers, at 15,000 feet up. >> if the box is aimed a little high, some of the laser light will not hit the roof of the house, for example, it will just keep going off into space. reporter: the f.a.a. says other pilots have reported them as well. that american jet was over garland at the time. it's a new fad, festive on the ground, but creating concern in the sky. jean: the f.a.a. has a plan it will most likely first ask the homes that are shooting lasers toward the sky to turn them off or redirect them. if that doesn't happen, that's
5:33 pm

5:41 pm
out at the coast today at market square, this is great weather for people out and about doing holiday shopping, planning holiday parties and doing all sorts of outdoor it's the. but for those die-hard skiers and riders, the snow guns have been blasting during the nighttime hours, so there are plenty of spots open, just call ahead for the latest conditions. in terms of natural snow, really don't see much of that over the next few days. the reason why the jet stream lifting well to our north allowing temperatures to be above average, even though we cooled right down to the norm today, we're going back in the other direction as we advance through the end of the week and weekend. chilly night, into the day tomorrow and tomorrow night. then it does turn a little warmer by the end of the week. over the weekend with enough partial sunshine from later thursday and especially friday on, some spots could hit 50 or above yet again. so that's moving on in with a couple of spot showers early
5:42 pm
we'll have to watch for temperatures near freezing, especially areas concord north and west. there could be a light glazing due to a touch of freezing rain during that time. outside of that mainly precipitation-free. it is season my chilly, as mentioned, but notice mount washington at 27, really not all that cold for over 6,000 feet up, indicating that the air mass beginning to warm already and by later tomorrow and into thursday and friday, we get those temperatures well above average again. but right now it's mid to upper 30's across the board from the merrimack valley towards the coast, mid to upper 30's in the monadnock region, colder in places like new london, back to the lake sunapee stretch, heart of the lakes region, mid to upper 30's. stuartstown at 29. during the next several hours, temperatures slowly come back,
5:43 pm
spots, lakes region north. just in time for the morning commute tomorrow a recovery, by eight or nine we're back into the low 30's. a good part of the country below normal, so that indicates it will be tough to get below average for any time soon or for that matter any duration. we may cool like we did today back to average, but we're not going to see a major cooldown that lingers for day after day. next system on the map due to the mild air ahead of it will come in the form of rain for many and again it's spotty in nature, these showers, not a lot of steady rain or snow. once that gets in here outside of a couple showers early thursday it's dry again, through later thursday into early on friday. highs tomorrow back into the low to mid 40's, so a couple notches above today. thursday, despite clouds and limited breaks of sun and a few sprinkles early, it will be milder, back into the mid to upper 40's, a couple spots may
5:44 pm
so how long does that last? well, right on into friday, saturday, sunday and monday. the next system that could bring steadier rain in here probably not until sometime early next week. so again this is good news for ski areas by night, they can make the snow. so a bit of a tradeoff here. josh: heavy rains have drenched portland, expoarg that's causing flooding and mudslides. jean: it's also forcing people to leave their homes with only means pets. one cat is making headlines after making a swim for it. she was safely recovered by her owner who carried her the rest of the way to safety. there's also devastating flooding in norway right now. take a look at this home washed away by the power of water, all this flooding was caused by a severe storm over the weekend. many people were forced to evacuate there as well, while a
5:45 pm
and southern norway was shut down. jamie: bruins and celtics have this tuesday night off. but they are back in action tomorrow night, the b's play at the montreal canadiens. that's a tough game. bulls. congratulations to that girl, merrimack high school volleyball star joe an coffey, she's been named the gatorade player of the year. it's a repeat for the coffey family, her older sister won it last year. 724 assists this season and finished her career with a state record 2,056 assists, she will play in college at snhu. that will begin next year. and some great photos from the dartmouth big green hockey team, they visited chad yesterday, the children's hospital at dartmouth hitchcock. it's an annual tradition. look at the photo on the left, they're playing a game of 7up. that looks like josh mcelveen at his desk every day at 4:00, we all have to be really quite fret
