mike: we start you off with a wintery scene atop mount washington earlier today. locked in with the clouds, certainly looked the part of winter and still does actually with the clouds parting. the breeze not all that bad, and temperatures running a little bit above the norm. but still in the down in the valleys today made a run into the 50's. 57 the official high in concord. well above the average. nowhere close to the record. but we'll be somewhere in between that 57 and that record tomorrow, as it does turn even warmer with plenty of sun for your friday. right now it's on the pleasantly cool side, 40's in many spots, 32 at the summit of mount washington, that's still mild for over 6,000 feet up this time of year. even at the coastline, mid to upper 40's. that will be one of the cooler
6:17 pm
right now 40's. by later tonight it's upper 20's north, 30's for many. some in the monadnock region, upper 20's to around 30. but really not all that bad considering this time of year we could be much, much colder. the report low for the date is one below zero. it's not that cold. but certainly wintery back to the west. 50's, 60's, 70's, even 80's, turned into 20's and 30's in a good portion of the rockies and foreign plains states. that cold air will be marsh east water over the next few days, so that by sunday it's moving right over new hampshire. at least for now it's on the mild side, and it will remain that way into the first half of the weekend, with tempertures well above average. but the cold air just on our doorstep. then the jet stream digs right in our direction for sunday into monday, that means any rain that falls monday morning could actually end as a little bit of snow, especially in the mountains to the north and even
6:18 pm
right now fair skies. moving ahead to the start of the weekend, clearly the pick of the two weekend days by far, sunshine statewide from sunup to sundown, and then a few clouds will roll in saturday night. on sunday rain showers early and the rain-snow line, chases it by late morning into the afternoon. tough to call whether enough cold a indication that western and northern locales could see a little bit of an accumulation by the time we get to midday or early afternoon on sunday. while it dries out elsewhere. then cold with more snow showers, especially up north on monday. tomorrow anything but wintery, it's mid to upper 50's north, upper 50's and lower 60's south. take a look at the start of the weekend, we jump again, well above average. it will be a little cooler tomorrow at the coast. but then even a little cooler still on saturday due to a
6:19 pm
not all that strong. but stronger than tomorrow. inland upper 50's to very low 60's. now we get to the weekend itself. notice on sunday here come the the clouds and the rain changing to snow showers before it's over, snow showers continue on and off on monday. it will be windy and chilly, morning flakes in the mountains on tuesday. other than that it latest be dry, windy and chilly again. good news for wednesday, could be a system with rain or snow around chicago through minneapolis, but the rest of the major hubs should be good. >> on the other side of this commercial break we'll tell you who wins the american league mvp award, it could be mookie betts.
