time lapse of the coast, a nice winter day out there. a little on the chilly side but it is mid-january. we don' t have much snow or eyes to contend with on the roads so that is ok out there. that will change by early saturday morning as the next wave moves in. a few flurries up north, then early saturday morning is when the next storm moves in. a wintry mix of rain and reaching rain and a few wet it picks up saturday morning before moving out quickly by early afternoon on saturday. we should see rapid improvement on area roadways on sunday. dry with some partial clearing that should allow temperatures to fall off on average back into the single digits north and
right now we are running mostly in the team to around 20. notice that temperature pattern across the country. not all that bridge across the northern tears. a little -- a wedge of springlike warmth moving up through st. louis into the mississippi valley and eventually into the ohio valley as the storm begins to develop in the warm sector down here over the gulf of mexico. with it not only some rain but embedded thunderstorms indicating a lot of energy with the storm. the back edge already racing toward new orleans. i would say about saturday afternoon it is all gone, but we have to get to that point and it looks to be a little messy again saturday morning. tomorrow morning clouds and partial sun. as they lower and thicken and the winds pick up on shore we could see a few mixed showers developing after the midnight hour. then the leading edge of the
saturday morning. mainly in the form of rain but near the ground it might be 31 or 32. untreated surfaces could be a little sleep with a touch of freezing rain. mid to late morning is when we get hit with the brunt of the storm. heavy rain manchester south and east but primarily rain. the wintry mix of rain with pockets of wet snow in the higher terrain of the northern part of the monadnock region, places like washington and through the lake sunapee zone in the white mountains, in between mainly rain in the valleys but a little bit of wet snow cannot be ruled out. by 3:00 in the afternoon, most of northern new hampshire is in the clear. what about snow projections, mainly rain. possibly a half inch right at the end but it looks to be mainly went.
at this point looks like 1-3 with the highest amounts in the higher elevations. beyond that would go into a fairly nice saturday night and into early monday, snow showers and squalls could make it messy and tricky on the roads early monday. after that arctic cold for a couple of days early next week. jamie: all kinds of nfl news, getting ready for the patriots layoffs, plus cheap is the economy rigged? well, the 15 richest americans acquired more wealth in two years than the bottom 100 million people combined. i'm bernie sanders, and i approve this message. my plan -- make wall street banks and the ultra-rich pay their fair share of taxes,

you. than is hosting a one-of-a-kind free two-hour real-estate wealth-building workshop where you will learn his three-step system for getting started flipping homes and buying and holding income properties. than and his team are currently looking for a small group of motivated individuals who want to work directly with his team and learn the exact step-by-step system he's used to flip hundreds of properties over the past decade. at this event, you will learn exactly how you can do this without needing money, credit, or any prior experience. so if you've always had the desire to get into real estate or you're already in real estate, this event is the perfect opportunity for you to learn than's system. than's system has created thousands of success stories around the country and helped numerous people make money and change their financial futures forever. >> just a few months ago, i attended one of than merrill's training events. since then, i've sold two properties, i have six houses under construction, and i have
in fact, the house behind me i just sold and made $38,000. i'm providing a better life for my daughter, and i'm absolutely loving life. now i'd like to introduce you to the man who changed my life, my mentor and friend, than merrill. >> if you're looking to increase your income, become less dependent on a job, spend more time with your friends and family, and ultimately have more fun and freedom in your life, then stick with me, because i'm gonna show you how you can have all of those things and more by learning my proven three-step system for investing in real estate. i'm than merrill, star of a&e's hit tv show "flip this house." over the past 10 years, i've become a self-made multi-millionaire buying and selling hundreds of properties just like the one behind me that are probably right in your neighborhood. over the course of this program, i'll also gonna show you properties i've made money on in the past few months and take you to properties that i'm currently

over the last decade, middle-class families have lost 1/3 of their net worth because wages are falling and inflation is rising. you know, the old idea that if you work hard and you pay your dues that you'll get ahead might be giving you false hope, and sadly, for the first time in history, a lot of people are not gonna be better off than their parents. you see, the reality is if you're relying on someone else -- the government or a job -- you might be putting yourself and your family at risk. and it only takes something as common as a job loss or a divorce or an unexpected family health problem, and you could go from a normal, middle-class family to newly poor practically overnight. realize this could happen to you, and that's why it's so important for you to get a financial education and take the proper steps to take care of your family. and the best way to do this is through real-estate investing. statistics show that real-estate investing is the most likely way to achieve financial
