5:18 pm
new york and vermont, just spotty sprinkles at best. the steady rain to our south and east will move just off to our south overnight into tomorrow morning. so not a whole lot of rain left over, still damp and on the mild side. yes, it is quite chilly in parts of central new hampshire, upper 30's in the lakes region. plymouth just barely above freezing. concord only at 37. same story in nashua. but you get into the higher terrain up north, approaching 50. some of the higher terrain in the monadnock region same story. with the light southerly win, temperatures will actually be climbing or holding steady during the overnight. so these are not low temperatures, these are the actual readings by midnight, one, two, three in the morning, low 40's north and mid to upper 40's in southern parts of the state. well above normal high temperatures for this time of year. now, there is a lot of cold air back to our west. not unseasonably chilly, but just more seasonable. back through the plains states,
5:19 pm
the central plains as well, and into parts of the mississippi valley. eventually that cool air makes it in here, starting later tomorrow night into friday, and the weekend. in terms of big storms to track, not a lot between now and tomorrow outside a couple showers that may scoot in tomorrow morning. you can see it reflected on future cast. not a whole lot of rain, but a shower here or there along with dense fog in some spots. tomorrow morning patchy clouds left over, could be a sprinkle or light shower south and east of concord of but statewide late morning and afternoon right into the sun and warm temperatures. then friday there will be thicker cloud cover approaching southeastern parts of new england. may brush southeastern massachusetts with steady snow. can't rule out a few flurries that make it into southeastern new hampshire early friday morning, then back to dry and seasonably cool the rest of your friday, and the rest of the upcoming weekend. temperature wise tomorrow, low
5:20 pm
concord points south and east. about 20 degrees above the average. again, cooler as we go into friday, as we get into the weekend partly sunny each day. could be a flurry early on sunday. then there will be two storms we're tracking for the monday through early wednesday time frame. the first one should scoot south and east of new hampshire, maybe a few flurries monday night. the second one as long as it's close to that first one it won't have enough room to intensify that much. so right now i'm going to forecast snow for tuesday, but on the light side. we'll see, we got a couple more days to watch our computer models here. but right now doesn't look like a major storm, but it may get in the way of some trying to head to the polls. josh: could affect turnout, we'll see. jennifer: straight ahead, presidential candidates share their thoughts on the most important personal traits for
