snow is already fall in parts of the state and will only pick up as the night goes on. let's start our weather coverage with chief meteorologist mike haddad. mike: very weak storm moving through, but it's just enough snow to make the roads slick. take a look at the scene in dublin where we do have snow beginning to coat the ground. if you're traveling, it is going to be slick and here's the reason why. temperatures for manchester points north and northwest all freezing or below, and even though the snow is going to be on the light side this is what we're expecting. on average about 1 to 3 inches, not a whole lot, but all it takes is a coating to a half inch to make the roads slick. a little bit more possibility once you get into the mount washington valley through the great north woods and points north and east, once the storm really cranks up later tonight. but too far to the east to give new hampshire a heavy dumping of snow. take a look at doppler radar, some areas are experiencing light snow right now.
5:01 pm

5:05 pm
few hours from now. aixa diaz is in our washington bureau with a look at what the white house has promised will be an innovative address. reporter: the white house says president obama isn't so much focusing on past accomplishments but looking ahead to future challenges. >> i want to identify three or four big ideas that we have to focus on. reporter: after seven years in office, president obama prepares for his final state of the union address. >> doesn't sound like it will be a laundry list of proposals that he wants congress to pass, because there's a lot of things he wants to do that congress doesn't want to do. reporter: the white house says the president will focus on the long-term challenges facing the nation, including climate change. one area the administration says it feels good about, the economy. >> we have really made a lot of progress in building back in the worst economic downturn since the great depression. now we have an opportunity. how do we build on this enormous progress? reporter: but the new speaker of the house who will sit behind

5:13 pm
child of his former girlfriend, jessica linscott. >> the defendant is a very violent person and he could committed some very violent acts, unspeakable acts against a 3-year-old child and he deserves every day of his sentence. reporter: dow claimed that linscott should not have been allowed to testify that he physically abused her. but the supreme court ruled that the value of the testimony explaining why linscott delayed reporting the abuse for child and lied to police outweighed any prejudice. >> he strangled her numerous times, he pulled her hair, he dropped her down the stairs. he literally held her life in his hand. so she was afraid of him, and the jury needed to understand that so they could understand why she would have failed to protect her child. reporter: dow also argued that the trial judge erred in allowing a domestic violence expert to testify. but the supreme court rejected that, saying the judge did give instructions to the jury about
5:14 pm
the county attorney considers the rulings precedent setting. >> there's a number of reasons why victims of domestic violence act the way they do, but it's really tough for people to wrap their heads around that, unless they can hear from someone who has worked in the field for years and years and years. reporter: the victim's family reportedly relieved. >> he feels very safe with this man behind bars, he knows he can't commit any more crimes against him, and they also don't want any other children to be hurt by this man. so they're very happy about it. reporter: in brentwood, jennifer crompton, wmur news 9. josh: the first trial is now under way related to general motors' faulty ignition switches. the new york judge tarted hearing the case of an oklahoma man that was hurt in 2014 in a crash. g.m.'s attorney says the auto maker will prove the crash was ignition switch. this is the first of six trials schedule forward in year for the hundreds of of lawsuits against

5:16 pm
driving this morning, and now in. but some places are still on alert for snow squalls that could bring up to another inch of snow. for the very latest, let's go to mike haddad. mike: same system, as you mentioned, most of the snow we snow. but there will be a couple of squalls between 6:00 and 9:30, maybe 10:00 where we got most of our accumulating snow. newfound lake today, filtered sun early, then the cloud rolling in through the course of the day. find light snow fall right now. but you can clearly see even though the sun has set out there in dublin, snow covered pavement, parking lots, side roads, and the visibility cut down. so there's some steady snow out there in parts of the monadnock region, and that means road conditions will continue to go downhill over the next few hours. temperature wise lining up at or
5:17 pm
spots, the exception nashua and manchester right along the coastline. but in the next hour or two as precipitation picks up, any light mix at all will go quickly over to wet snow. and that will tend to grease up the roads quickly. so notice on radar, steady snow from berlin points south through the ossipee area and eastern lakes region, down route 9 '3, man commerce and points west. not all reaching the ground just yet, tomorrows the east of manchester. we are seeing some fine light snow right over manchester and points north and northwest. nothing really sticking to the roads just yet. but again it's a different story back the our south and west through jaffrey up through peterborough and dublin as well. farther to the north, steadier light snow beginning to accumulate as well, back to our west the energy for the storm is getting closer. a very narrow line of squalls moving through central portions of new york state. once it gets close to albany, new york, it will transfer its
5:18 pm
we're already seeing signs of an explosive development over southern new england. that will cause the snow to fill in for a short few hours right over new hampshire, giving us a general one to three inch snow tally. so between now and 7:00 or 7:30, that's when we'll start to see the snow picking up. after 9:30 or 10:00, most of that has shifted off to the east, and actual front will work through overnight with a passing snow showers, most of the accumulation after 10:00 him snowfall amounts fairly low, but all it takes is a one to two-inch snowfall to make it slippery out there right through tonight and into the overnight stretch. however, beyond tonight, skies will clear out quickly and temperatures tomorrow, don't go too far. after bottoming out in the mid teens north, they only top off near 19 in the great north woods. lower to mid 20's lakes region through tupper valley and monadnock region, and upper 20's concord points south and southeast.
5:19 pm
so for tonight, upper teens north, lower 20's south. any snow that does fall will stick. again it's not a whole lot, but you'll have to do some shoveling, brush it off, an inch or two here or there. keep in mind that early tomorrow morning we're well below freezing, so there could still be slick spots out there. partial clearing in southern new hampshire overnight, while light snow continues up north. a few snow showers in the mountains tomorrow morning, otherwise partly to mostly sunny, windy and cold, thursday some partial sun, could be a few flurries in the mountains, a mix of of sun and clouds friday, fairly nice day. then the next system could be a stronger storm on saturday with snow, maybe a mix in far southern parts of the state. still trying to figure out how that will play out, but a good possibility of some accumulation then. dryer for sunday. josh: could make the patriots game interesting. mike: yes. jean: we'll be watching. josh: we're beginning a special

5:22 pm
we start with, what do you consider to be the greatest threat to u.s. national security? and what would you do about it as president? >> i've always put nuclear weapons at the top of my list, because those are truly the most damaging weapons that one can imagine. it's not just worrying about rogue states like north korea, although we have to keep worrying about it or try to prevent the development of nuclear weapons in iran. now we have to worry about these sophisticated terrorists who have been on the hunt for nuclear material for quite some time, and they've been unable to obtain it. but i have no doubt they're going to continue to try. so this is another one of these areas where the united states must lead in coordinating efforts across the globe to identify and to obtain and take
5:23 pm
completely as possible, anything that could fall into the wrong hands, and that requires law enforcement, intelligence, military, it requires all of our assets being used. and i would certainly put that on the top of my list. >> well, the security threats evolve and change every day. as you ask me this question now, i would say that the biggest security threat to the united states is the threat posed by isil. isil has demonstrated an ability to strike well beyond the battlefields of syria and iraq, downing the russian airliner, the attacks in lebanon, the attacks in paris. it's obvious that they've now created a safe haven and a degree of sophistication that we need to move against as not only one nation but as one nation in coalition with other nations. that's what i would say is the greatest security threat to the united states today, from isil. >> i think you've got two threats, obviously isis and
5:24 pm
great threat. in my view we've got to organize a strong coalition in which muslim troops are on the ground fighting for the soul of islam supported by the united states and other major countries. but the second also, long-term threat to this country in terms of national security is the issue of climate change. if we don't get our act together, you're going to see more floods, more drought, more international instability as people compete for limited natural resources. those are the immediate threat, isis and terrorism, long-term threat global warming. josh: we'll hear from more custody in our next half-hour. you can read where they stand on issues at wmur.com. jean: sentencing for one of the men involved in in fight at an amusement park. josh: the closuring of several macy's stores could be the last

mike: fast moving storm brings snow to many parts of new hampshire tonight. how much we'll see, plus when we get the sunshine back. josh: while extradition procedures get under way for el chapo, what can we expect for the drug lord's charges here in new hampshire? jean: one issue is uniting lawmakers across party lines. new legislation designed to abuse. josh: the panhandling laws in new hampshires biggest city now face a new legal challenge. josh: that sound means we are on the storm watch tonight with a winter weather advisory in effect around the entire state. welcome back, i'm josh mcelveen. jean: i'm jean mackin.

5:29 pm
he could be extradited and prosecuted. back in 2009, the local u.s. attorney's office and the f.b.i. launched a drug trafficking investigation that involved el chapo. >> that resulted in some indictments and the arrest of four individuals in spain in 2012. reporter: those four people, one who claimed to be guzman's cousin, were prosecuted in jail. but not guzman. now with his apprehension this week in mexico, it's possible, though highly unlikely, that guzman could be brought to the granite state. >> realistically there are a number of district as cross the country that have indicted him. some of those districts indicted did. cases. reporter: the decision on where guzman may go lies in washington and not with the courts. >> ultimately the people that, they will pick one district for him to be prosecuted in. reporter: the federal prosecutor
5:30 pm
because it shows these individuals can be stopped. but its impact on the drug business may not be significant. >> unfortunately, the cartel is a huge business. and this takes off the c.e.o. of the business, but unfortunately i think there are people who are over. reporter: the case now moves to the mexican criminal justice system, and there's no timetable for when guzman could be extradited to the united states. i'm andy hershberger, wmur news 9. josh: thanks. the third member of a vermont family involved with a braun -- a brawl with police at canobie lake park have been sentenced. arrested. perry pled guilty to inciting a riot, he gets 12 months in jail with eight month suspended. manchester's anti-panhandling

5:32 pm
together, every single day. reporter: testimony in the joint public hearing tuesday kicked off with the governor. lawmakers are expediting a panel of bills aimed at disman l the deadly grip of heroin and fentanyl. >> the fight against addiction is far from over. and we all recognize that there is more work to do. reporter: new laws will add fentanyl to the list of of law. according to the chief medical examiner, 253 deaths were linked to fentanyl last year. heroin alone was connected to 12 deaths. also in the package of legislation, new rules for prescribers, aimed at catching so-called doctor shoppers. >> so from october to the end of december, our state prescribed 648,000 prescription strips for 33 million individual pills. that's just a staggering number,
5:33 pm
reporter: that's about 25 pills per new hampshire resident, in three months time. senator sanborn's bill is pushing for 100% compliance from prescribers, to utilize the prescription drug monitoring data base. >> i believe at this point with the opioid epidemic we have today, we should mandate that every doctor check and see what their patients are taking for prescription drugs before they write a new one. reporter: lawmakers say the bills are on track to meet the governor's deadline, they'll go to the floor thursday for a vote and then hopefully head to the governor's desk next week. josh: thanks. still ahead, with all the talk of powerball fever, you might be surprised to hear how much money is left unclaimed by lottery winners. jean: macy's latest round of closures could have a bigger effect than expected, for some malls it's just one of several retailers closing up shop. mike: as the flakes continue to
