upper valley at 40. mid to upper 40's in the monadnock region. and the ocean temperature at 51. with a light on shore wind now becoming stronger, that's driving temperatures well up there close to 50 degrees at this time. it is cooler to the north, it's still above freezing, so that means primarily light rain into the great north woods with a little sleet and a touch of wet snow on the mountain t and west, this is all beneficial rain. as we're still in severe drought in southern new hampshire and extreme drought in extreme southern zones around nashua and towards the coastline. but again eventually this rain will give way to some just overcast skies overnight tonight. what about that exact timeline, depending on where you are in the state depends on when the rain moves out and what follows for the overnight. josh is here with a look at that timeline. josh j.: yes, let's take a look at the next several hours.
exactly when does it move through. let's roll into local spots, we'll talk about southeastern new hampshire to begin with, we'll put the temperatures on top. you can see we're expecting them to start rising over the next hour or two. and as long as the temperatures that are cooler can get scoured out of the valleys we should see the temperatures rapidly rise into the next few hours, into the 40's. but you can tell as we look at future cast that there will the back end rolling through between 8:00 and 10:00 p.m. as the temperatures will be well into the 40's. and then just a couple leftover sprinkles after that. in areas farther to the north, this is where there's been more freezing rain through the day today. and those temperatures in some of the valleys low enough that there's been just a little bit of spotty icing left over. but for the most part over to rain in a lot of these areas. take a look at the heavy rain
rising during the late night hours into tonight, and during the overof night hours holding steady, we think, above that freezing mark. so mike will now take a look at what's to come in the next few hours and days. mike: good news here with no refreeze expected tonight because the temperatures actually rise a little bit during the next self hours, through the overnight. a few pockets up north where you're right near freezing, so watch for slick spots out there. temperatures have not been climbing all that much, so still up north. as we advance through late tonight, early tomorrow, just overcast skies, actually above, we'll have some breaks, but a lot of low clouds and fog will fill in. the try morning will give way to a wet afternoon and some of that rain that develops with system number two will be quite heavy. beneficial rain an additional inch plus in many parts of central and southern new hampshire. this will all tend to wind down around the morning commute on
just like tomorrow, into the 40's, and with some more sun coming in 50's just sitting off to our west. they will likely move in across a good part of central and southern new hampshire. thursday, by the way, is the first day of december. 50's in here. so when do we start to cool down? a little bit on friday, scattered snow showers in the mountains, partly sunny south. same story on saturday and early sunday. then dry statewide later sunday in finally drop back to average. ski country taking a little hit right now, but we eventually will cool down by week's end and the snow guns will blast and they'll get a little natural snow here and there. tom: all right, thank you. jennifer: up next in living well, reducing your risk of stroke, the new link discovered to drinking alcohol in moderation. tom: can and binge watching your favorite shows online could soon cost you, why officials in one

glasses. and studies have long suggested that alcohol in moderation can be linked to good health. now a new review of research provides further evidence that an occasional glass of alcohol is tied to a lower risk of a certain type of stroke. researchers in sweden and the u.k. looked at more than two dozen studies and found that light to moderate alcohol consumption, up to a drink or two per day, appears to be linked to a lower risk of suffering what is known asn ischemic stroke, the kind caused by a blockage in the vessels that supply blood to the brain. but the same natural says found that heavy drinks is leads to an increased risk of all types of stroke. the take away is to remember to use alcohol only the moderation, and if you have trouble knowing

this year the state legislature approved 130,000 in funding for upgrades. but there is no line item. drug prescribers and dispensers are required to be registered. but getting in to use the program took some convincing. >> the use of the pdmp is making more information available to us so we can better take care of our patients, and address those who we can identify as doctor shopping or those who are overusing prescriptions. reporter: according to the annual report, opioids have decreased by 5 million doses in the past 12 months. >> the best practices are start low and go slow. that's what the c. d. c. says and i think people are embracing that. reporter: the report also shows a decrease in doctor shopping where patients get drugs from five or more prescribers. from a high of 35 patients flagged in 2015 down to 12 during the same time period in 2016. >> so they're taking this seriously. i really think the prescribers

supreme court decision is that people are free to express themselves that way. >> i don't think we want to make this a legal issue, and i disagree with mr. trump on that and the court is probably right. reporter: lawmakers don't want to make this a congressional issue either. he says they have no plans to take action on flag burning. in washington, jennifer davis, wmur news 9. tom: grocery shoppers in boston could soon be seeing an kra charge on their receipts, the city is that would charge residents five cents per bag at grocery and convenience stores, doesn't matter if it's paper or plastic. the taxis meant to encourage shoppers to bring a reusable bag. jennifer: in tonight's spirit of giving, today is giving tuesday. so people all across the country are helping important causes by donating both their time and their money. granite united way is encouraging people to give to their organizations today. the nonprofit helps fund
