6:18 pm
that in a moment. meanwhile, look how much warmer it is than yesterday. milder temperatures of 5 to 15 degrees warmer than the same time yesterday. so you can certainly feel the difference as you head outside, even this evening. skies are clearing for now. but the clouds are going to regroup and move in again, as we move through the overnight hours, there they are to our west, and as you can see there are a line of showers along this front as well. the front will pull in during the day tomorrow. ahead of it there could be a couple of overnight showers. then tomorrow we approach along this front as the front pulls through, then it shuts off the rain once it does for the most part with scattered showers after and cooler temperatures behind the front that will be drugging down. we're not talking about extreme cold of any kind but certainly below average temperatures are in store once that front rolls through. and that takes us into and through the weekend and into next week, but it also means calmer weather conditions. so we really just have this rain on the docket for now.
6:19 pm
rain. anywhere from a quarter to half inch will be your average. but there could be a few spots that see locally up to an inch of rain. there will be some areas of downpours perhaps during the day. here's the overnight hours into tomorrow morning, some scattered showers. then here comes that rain, look at those yellows on the radar, this is projected downpours in some locations for a while during the morning, midday and afternoon. southeastern new hampshire the last to see th may take until later in the morning before that happens for you. then some sprinkles and maybe flurries in the mountains brings clearing skies into friday. friday will be breezy, but sunny, and cooler too. temperatures start to sink back down below average and we stay there for a while. these lows tonight will be as warm as the high the next several days. tomorrow about 10 degrees cooler. but friday, there's your highs,
6:20 pm
30's to the north. the extended forecast, things really do calm down quite a bit after tomorrow. tomorrow's showers and downpours lead to calm, clear weather and a little bit below average for this time of year. we turn the clocks back saturday night. and as we head into next week it looks pretty sunny for the first couple of days, that's important because voting day, election day is tuesday. jennifer: we're in the seven-day window now. jamie: speaking of seven, cannot wait the world series and we have a big time new hampshire
6:21 pm
vo: ending funding for planned parenthood. taking away our right to choose. restricting our health care choices. this is senator kelly ayotte's record. ayotte voted six times to end funding for planned parenthood - putting access to birth control and cancer screenings at risk. and she supports overturning roe v. wade. woman 2: voters definitely cannot trust kelly ayotte. vo: senate majority pac is responsible for the content of this advertising. when all three of these guys show up, they come up with some crazy ideas. sometimes, i just have to say, "no way." so i appreciate it when annie kuster says "no" to cutting social security. she stood up to both parties to protect our benefits.
