6:00 pm
@buildup off of the roadways that @could lead to scattered power @outages. @the 12-hour loop showing at the @beginning some snow, then a @changeover to sleet and freezing @rain and now mostly rain. @but because of pockets of @freezing rain, winter weather @advisories remain in effect. @temperatures for the most part @just before freezing, but in and @around the lake sunapee zone, @parts of the lakes region in @through the mount washington @valley, notice little dashes of @pink there on the radar scopes, @that indicates more ice buildup, @especially in the wires and @trees. @so again scattered outages not @out of the question. @to our south and west big @changes, thunderstorms, heavier @rain, and spring-like @temperatures all going to be @moving in just over the next 12 @to 15 hours. @how warm does it get by morning, @we'll look at that straight @ahead. @jennifer: the department of @transportation is keeping a @close eye on those roads @tonight. @a live look now at i-93 where @roads are wet but traffic is @moving spootly.
