tom: tonight the nation's capital continues to dig out. jennifer: look at this time lapse video of just how much snow fell, how quickly it added up in the d.c. area, in just a day and a half. it fell at three to
four inches an hour. of course we dodged that big storm, but we're not always that lucky. josh judge is here now with more on when we last faced a storm like that one. josh: you probably have some good or bad memories of last year, many of us, where the snow
there was one storm one year ago this week on january 27, let's take a look at video of that in a moment. but there were as much as three to four inches of snow falling many times. this is plaistow that we're looking at here when they were digging out of that snow, where almost 30 inches of snow fell during that storm in the plaistow area. and just as much if not more in many other locations as well. other locations that saw three inches per hour, nashua with 33 and seabrook 32, as well as hudson. salem, exeter, litchfield all al 30 inches or more. during that snow from about 4:00 a.m. to 10 or 11 in the morning, there was many heavy bursts of snow that rolled through with at least three to four inches per hour that came down. so this kind of mimics what they saw in the d.c. area as well. this was the storm system that
parts of the state there in that area, with 34 to 36 inches as you see right there. that was quite the storm that we saw this past weekend, and of course mike haddad is here with a look at our forecast and a look at how much they saw down there. mike: yes, very impressive numbers, josh. there were a couple spots in west virginia, 40 plus inch eggs of snow. but in terms of the bigger cities, they topped off around two to two and a half feet including d.c. at dulles airport, just under 30 inches of snow. baltimore just under 30 as well. hershey, pennsylvania with 29 inches of snow. 28.1 in newark. and central park, new york over two feet of snow. the last of the storm pulling out during the day on saturday and as it cleared not all that bad over the weekend. and even a little more pleasant today with the sunshine building in. temperatures running above the average, by several degrees. time lambs out of newfound lake,
are stating to see ice forming on some lakes, but not all spots, so you really have to watch it, the ice is not safe in many areas. by later tonight we drop down to near 10 on the canadian border, upper teens near 20 in the lakes region. good part of the country experiencing at or above normal temperatures. south. until you factor in several hundred miles. so we don't see a big jump from the midwest to the deep south, and because of that no major storms. yes, is there a weak disturbance back to the west, but outside of a couple widely scattered showers that's it. the best bet will be mainly up north tomorrow. so tomorrow partial sunshine, clouds will tend to build in during the afternoon. and there could be a shower, but again if you're going to be out tomorrow it should be a mainly dry, breezy and warmer day. 40's.
cooler wednesday. northwesterly winds take over. still a couple of widely scattered flurries or light snow showers around the great north woods and white mountains. towards the end of the week we start to see another system approaching through the midwest and great lakes. so as this approaches on friday, a good bet of scattered flurries or snow showers as another coastal system develops. but this one looks to pass out the sea to our east, later on friday morning, into friday afternoon. what about temperatures tomorrow? not all that bad. we're back into the 40's statewide except far north where the great north woods will top off in the upper 30's. quite a few clouds, could be an isolated mixed shower north. outside of that it will be dry, breezy, and again well above the average. for tonight, fair skies, nice and cool, again near 10 in places like putsburg and errol and colebrook. 15 to 20 in the lakes region and upper valley.
days, again notice temperatures climb up tomorrow. slightly cooler but still above average on wednesday. and those temperatures remain at or above the norm right through the next seven days. best chance of snow showers will be on friday. maybe a few more flurries or late snow showers later saturday and early sunday. and a couple of mixed showers early next week. so if you don't like the frigid air that we've had for the past couple of weeks, that seven-day is not too bad. tom: thank you. jamie: we're going to warm things up in sports and talk new hampshire golf association, the state amateur championship
