6:15 pm
we did not get to a record high in concord. we hit 51. the record is about 59. we were short of that. s. there. here are the temperatures at the moment. we have fallen below freezing in a couple of spots. for the most part, still relatively mild. 34 in laconia. woods. here is the situation. today, we had time where it was up. overcast. the upper valley. for the most part, it was dry across the state. that is not the case to the west of us. here is a cold front that will sweep through tomorrow. that will increase the clouds and bring in rain showers. no snow showers. it will be so mild that liquid.
6:16 pm
this is 7:00 a.m. on monday. you see the temperatures well above freezing even when we wake up tomorrow morning. anything over us will be in the form of rain. look at the temperatures in the afternoon in central and southern new hampshire, again a clip sing the 50-degree mark. finally cooler on tuesday with sunshine. on wednesday, we heat up again. it is going to be mild. here' s what you can expect tonight. 30' s across the state. rarely even below freezing in a lot of spots. here is the school day forecast. starting out in the upper 30' s. for recess and the last bell, close to 50. at the onset of this rain arriving on wednesday, there might be slick spots early wednesday morning. but then heavy downpours come in and it will be in the form of heavy rain on wednesday.

6:18 pm
but if you were hoping to see some of your favorites patriots, you won' t. seven new england players were selected to the pro bowl, the second most of any team in the league. but all seven backed out and will not participate. the list includes tom brady, rob gronkowski, chandler jones, even kicker stephen gostkowsi backed out of tonight' s game. that' s what they play for. the vince lombardi trophy arrived in san francisco last night, where it will remain until super bowl sunday. 49ers great roger craig escorted the trophy into the nfl experience. both the denver broncos and the carolina panthers left for california today. media day will take place on tuesday. >> we will stay in our routine but it will probably be shorter. hopefully we are short and sharp and continue that process and how we prepare to play. i want them relaxed. they have put in the work. i want them relaxed next week to get ready to go. >> i have told the players this
