5:17 pm
by a different chemical, coming in contact with air. the same type of cables that led to an explosion at a rhode island beach may be under dozens of other spots around the country. one person was hurt when something ignited the hydrogen that built up as the copper cable corroded underground. the line had had been abandoned by the coast guard and now a new report says there are 48 sites where similar buried cables were left unused, they're spread across 12 states. a tropical system is forming in an unusual place right now, the atlantic ocean. tom: we don't usually see conditions like this in january. let's get some explanation from meteorologist hayley lapoint. hayley: i know, it is a little odd to be talking about tropical weather the january, but indeed is there a storm that's been lurking right off the coastline. nothing of course in new england. but there it is, you can see it spinning a few hundred miles off the coast of the carolinas. there's bermuda, that little
5:18 pm
to the north of bermuda bringing in heavy rains and gusty winds. the good thing is this thing is really disintegrating, falling apart and as it's doing so it's moving off toward the north and east, it has been has a 10% chance of becoming a tropical storm. but if it were, it would be the first of 2016, so the first letter of the alphabet, alex, that's what its name would be. at this point it doesn't look like that will happen. but one of the reasons that we're seeing this tropical development is because the ocean temperatures are incredibly warm. typically they have ocean temperatures in the low 70's by bermuda, it's 73 degrees where that storm was. but look up closer to us, the ocean water 45 degrees off the coast of new england. that's running a good three to four degrees above where it should be this time of year. earlier today i got to talk to students about storms at kensington elementary. i had a great time meeting them and want to thank them for
5:19 pm
about storms and tornadoes, it was pay great time. for more on the forecast let's go over to mike haddad. mike: hello, haley, looks like a unsettled changes. of the weekend and even before we get there, keep in mind, while it will not be widespread, there will be some spots that have a light mix of a few flurries and even some light freezing drizzle. manchester, very, very fine, very spotty, and after about 7:00 this evening it could start to turn slick, you're looking at photos out of market square from earlier today. on radar, not much to speak of. and a good indication of how light precipitation will be, yes, doppler radar not showing much if anything except for steady lighter snow showers in parts of southern carroll county, in around and wakefield and northern stratford county, milton back through new durham. all of these snow showers could add up to a coating, maybe a
5:20 pm
outside of that really not much showing up on radar. so whatever is falling is so fine that the radar is not detecting it, that could be light fine flurries or snow showers or freezing drizzle, but it could be just enough to glaze up area roads. tomorrow morning this band of light rain showers will be moving overhead, breaking up as it does so. but it may be just enough, again, to add additional ghaizing on aunt -- glazing on untreated surfaces. then, in the gulf of next corks notice what's happening over the gulf coast, showers and thunderstorms are beginning to work in to eastern parts of the lone star state and western louisiana. this is a storm that will race in our direction by sunday morning, bringing rain rather than ice or snow to new hampshire. right now, right around freezing, again looks like the roads will be in fine shape for the next hour or two. but then as we coast back into the upper 20's to around 30, that's where any untreated surface could be a little bit slick in some spots.
5:21 pm
out and about, just give yourself a few extra minutes just in case you get in on a touch of that freezing drizzle or snow showers. a wedge of warm air building in along with the rain that will be blossoming in that direction towards the tennessee valley, so not only do we get on the rain, but we get in on some warm temperatures, possibly 50 in spots by sunday. so on the cool side through the course of the weekend, a little surge of warmth for sunday afternoon. and then get ready for a blast of classic winter cold, all next week. one shot of snow showers looks to be along about wednesday, but again up until that point it's that light spotty mix tonight and then heavier rain in the cards for sunday. for tonight, again that light spotty mix, flurries, touch of freezing drizzle, patchy fog, lows in the 20's. that will continue into your saturday morning, then mainly cloudy in the afternoon with a touch drizzle lingering, rain the heaviest will begin shortly after sunrise, 8:00 or 9:00 in the morning and continue into the afternoon. it will become windy and warmer and then here comes the winter
5:22 pm
lingering flakes up north on monday, and there could be some snow on wednesday, much more as we go through the next couple of days as that's in question. another check of the forecast at 5:30. jean: thanks, mike. could you wake up without the sound of your alarm? tom: up next we're going to show you how one company wants to revolutionize alarm clocks. jean: and the officer who helped two convicted killers escape from a new york prison allegedly returned to court today, that's
5:23 pm
new day for america is responsible for the content of who do you like in this election? something done. the hole, to two billion in the black. we've cut taxes and we're growing from a loss of three hundred fifty thousand jobs, to a gain three hundred forty-seven thousand jobs. what do you think? kasich. kasich. that's a funny name. he brought back jobs both from china as well as mexico and i don't believe another

jean: campbells will start noting genetically modified foods in the ingredients on its soup labels. many people fear the gmo's don't get the same kind of testing as other foods. campbell's says it considers the ingredients safe, but still likes the idea of disclosing them to customers. if the sound of your alarm clock makes you cringe, would you consider trying the smell of it instead? tom: one device on dispray at the consumer electronics show is a clock that releases scents when the alarm goes off. >> what's your favorite smell, you have the coffee, chocolate, cut grass, seaside. you can pick your favorite one.
5:25 pm
people who tested the clock woke up in a couple minutes. you can swap out pods of different scents. the idea came from a 19-year-old who hates mornings. jean: then you wake up and expect coffee. tom: the only thing that would do it for me would be bacon. jean: that would be a number one seller. straight ahead at 5:30, rethinking the shape of television, wait until you hear what the newest concept tv set can do. tom: if your office wins the powerball jackpot, there's more to decide than what to buy with your winnings.

5:30 pm
temperatures are critical, right now slightly above freezing, but in the coming hours we'll see a dip below freezing, that means any untreated surface with this light fine mist or freezing drizzle with a few flurries mixed in may result in a few slick spots. it will not be widespread statewide, but if you're out there between now and early morning tomorrow, there could be some icy travel. not a lot will fall out of the cloud cover, but that will change on sunday, as a strong storm moves in. we'll take a look at that in a few minutes. tom: an autopsy shows an ossipee woman died from a heart attack after getting stranded. alison robertson was found on bear pond road. her family talked to kristen carosa. >> i just miss her, i just want her here. reporter: holding pictures close, tracey is reacting to the loss of her grandmother, alison
