5:08 pm
the drug cartels from mexico. cruz left midway through that event, heading to another event in ware, followed by town hall in laconia. jennifer: thanks. the candidates leading the polls are also targets for the rest of the field. still ahead, the direct attacks against marco rubio. josh: let's talk about the democratic side of things now, the only candidates left standing are prepared to face each other in a debate tonight. hillary clinton and bernie sanders will debate in a few hours. jean? reporter: that's right, josh, the democrats vying for the nomination take the debate stage here at the university of new hampshire in durham less than four hours from now. some of the 688 seats will be held by u.n.h. students, others held by new hampshire voters. the name of the game, getting that undecided vote, that's what both candidates are vying for here tonight. they took to you the town hall in derry last night when hillary clinton and bernie sanders took the stage separately.

republicans are watching this primary for more than just the white house. several sources tell news 9 that they're concerned about how tuesday's outcome could affect other races in november, including the already intense u.s. senate race involving kelly hassan. john distaso has that story in now, amid all this primary campaigning, governor hassan delivered her final state of the state address this afternoon. jennifer: the governor is looking ahead to a high profile race against senator ayotte. and as adam sexton reports live in concord now, that provided the back drop to this speech. reporter: in years past we've heard the governor in this speech talk about things like expanded gambling and computer rail. and to be sure the focus this time around was definitely statewide and local, but there were mentions of things like shootings. certainly an expanded world view in in speech that did not go
5:11 pm
obviously the heroin and fentanyl epidemic took center stage, while also saying there is much more to be done. she believes medicaid expansion is a key part of that. senate republicans say an agreement of some kind is likely, but they're still not happy with the governor's handling of the drug crisis. >> that's one of the many reasons why we must reauthorize the bipartisan new hampshire health protection program, without clay. >> we have a drug czar in this state and he's gone, he accomplished nothing. so i think our concern is about the management of the process. reporter: underneath the troubles of the drug epidemic, there are some positives to point to. the governor did mention that the state's unemployment rate is at 3.1%, that's the lowest it's been in 15 years. adam sexton, wmur news 9. josh: straight ahead, the

5:17 pm
mike: here we go, quite a few changes coming in down the road over the next 12 to 24 hours. there's a storm we've been tracking the past couple days that looked to pass to our south yesterday, that's going to come a little closer. that means a return to winter not only in terms of temperature but now in terms of snow. take a look at the time lapse photos out at the coast today, it was damp early, but then brightening skies and dryer conditions this afternoon, hard to imagine that snow is on the way when you consider how warm it is now, and when you look at the radar, you see green to our south. but cold air will gradually build in overnight. as that moisture builds in from the south, that will set the stage for a tricky morning commute, freps the lakes region south and east. right now still very mild. normal high this time of year in the low 30's. it's lower 40's, even up north
5:18 pm
southern new hampshire. gradually in time a degree here, couple of degrees here, every hour through the overnight, temperatures will eventually land in the upper 20's north and lower 30's in southern new hampshire. so when precipitation moves in along the dividing line between the cooler air and the warm stuff we've seen, it will fall in the form a mix and eventually a changeover to some snow. so let's break down the timeline. travel plans through midnight, two a.m., no issue. even when precipitation does develop after two or three in the morning, south of concord, it will be in the form of a light wintery mix. roadways will be plain old wet until about four, maybe 5:00 a.m. shortly after that time frame that precipitation will increase in intensity as temperatures hover right around freezing and that means the snow will begin to stick, especially concord, manchester, nashua. the eastern part of the monadnock region, most of what falls will be in the heart of
5:19 pm
afternoon. during the morning hours, snow could fall at a rate of a half inch to an inch per hour. dryer air builds in on the back side as we go into the weekend. so in terms of projected snow amounts, from ossipee back through concord and southeast of keene, points south and east a general two to four-inch wet snowfall. can't rule out this four to six-band. a spot may hit near five, but certainly enough to make it real slick on the roadways. eventually it dries out statewide in the afternoon. take a look at sky cast, it's going to tell the story during the predawn hours. the flakes will be big, with a very warm air mass in place to start, and temperatures near 33 or 34, they'll be those big monster snow flakes, it will be
5:20 pm
slick for the morning commute. improvement for the afternoon. weekend is looking quiet, pleasant a cool. monday a little colder but dry, and still a chance of snow on tuesday, at this point does not look like a blockbuster storm, but can't rule out some snow. keep in mind that just yesterday looked like a few flurries for tomorrow morning, now it more than that, five days out from the primary a lot of time to watch. jennifer: thank you, mike. up next, candidates weigh in on the most important personal traits for the next president. josh: at 5:30, a new alert on
5:21 pm
america's heroes have a message. if you've fought... you know picking a commander in chief is no small thing. you're looking for smarts... and guts. we looked at each candidate... we studied their record... we know... looked them over... we checked them out... and we chose one. there's only one. jeb bush. he's got a plan. he'll keep us safe. he's a president - a commander in chief. jeb bush. best prepared to be commander in chief. right to rise usa is responsible for the content
5:22 pm
josh: back to commit in 2016, scwed every presidential candidate which quality about themselves will best serve the country in the white house. >> i have the experience of having made decisions, consequential decisions that you need to be held accountable for, for the last 13 years of my life. seven years as a chief federal prosecutor in new jersey and six years as new jersey's governor. every day as governor and as a prosecutor i had to make decisions, sometimes life and death decisions. you need to know how to make those decisions, not to wring your hands, not to worry about whether someone will like you or not like you because of the decision you made, but to do what you believe in your head
5:23 pm
the people who elected you. we don't need on the job training in the oval office, we don't need another first-term united states senator who has never run anything in their lives. you need someone who has been behind the executive desk, made these decisions and understand house to be accountable for them and what the consequences are. that's the best trait i bring to this job. >> consistency. people are tired of politicians who say one thing and do another. we're fed up with washington, and we've been lied to too much. everyone running for president says that they oppose obamacare, everyone says they oppose amnesty and supported the second amendment. it's one of the things i love about new hampshire being first in the nation is you all take seriously the process of vetting, saying okay when have you stood up and fought to stop obamacare, when have you stood up and fought to stop president obama's illegally amnesty, when have you fought to defend our second amendment right to keep and bear arms.
5:24 pm
the other candidates running is there are a lot conservatives that sound great on the trail, but they don't have a proven record and when they get in office, they do what the republican leadership in congress is doing right now, they get in bed with the lobbyists and special interests, they get in bed with the democrats. that's how we get an $18 trillion debt. >> i understand what leadership is. a leader makes a tough call, in tough times, and stand up and is prepared to be held accountable. a leader also knows, and i know, that their job is to challenge the status quote, their job is not to go along to get along. their job is to challenge a system that isn't working any more, and we have a system in washington d.c. that isn't working. i know the difference between management and leadership. managers tinker around the edges of problems. leaders challenge the status quo so they can solve festering problems. i know how the economy works and
5:25 pm
i know about the world and who is in it. i have more foreign policy experience honestly than anyone running. and i understand bureaucracies, how to hold them accountable. i understand technology, which is an unbelievable tool as well as a weapon that's being used against us. and most importantly of all perhaps i understand that leadership is not about how big your office is, or how big your is. leadership is about service to others. josh: we'll hear from more candidates in the next half-hour. jennifer: also ahead tonight, a new system is in place this year for visually impaired voters. josh: many taxpayers are waiting to find out if their refunds will be clayed after technical glitches at the i.r.s. jennifer: our u local hot shot, chewbacca and flossy enjoying the warm weather, chewbacca is

store on 125 in plaistow. it was december 16 when authorities say a car driven by this woman, sister rachel dumont, was involved in a hit-and-run. there were no injuries and the damage was relatively minor. but police say that's not the issue. police say when the driver of the vehicle that got hit tried to get dumont's information, she left. but that person was able to get a license plate. police say the investigating officer contacted the 81-year-old nun several times, but received no response. an arrest warrant was issued on january 20th and on tuesday police say dumont turned herself in. she faces one misdemeanor count of conduct after an accident. she was released on bail and is scheduled to be in court in april. andy hershberger, wmur news 9. jennifer: 93 in concord is back open tonight after a vehicle caught fire. several wmur viewers sent us

5:44 pm
developing sun, clouds tended to build on in from time to time, but it was a dry and pleasantly mild day, considering it's february and the temperatures are running about 20 degrees above the average for this time of year. here come the changes as we go through late tonight, early tomorrow morning, as winter makes a big return. a light mix will arrive during the overnight, sometime after two or three in the morning, then quickly go over to wet snow, just in time for the morning commute. the saidiest south and east of the lakes region during that time. a few inches of snow likely in many spots south and east of of the lakes region tomorrow morning as this moisture across the deep south begins to move in to marriage naturally cold air over -- marriage -- a couple spots hit the low 50's, but beginning to drop a little. upper 40's in exeter.

through hudson and nashua. to the north and west we're starting to see that winter chill slowly easing on in, across new hampshire. we've got readings back to 37 in new london, only five shy of the freezing mark. i'm anticipating the change going over to snow tomorrow morning. the canadian border down below freezing. notice future temperatures, very critical once we get below 33, 34 snow will likely begin to stick on area roadways and during the five, six, seven a.m. time frame that's what happens, lakes region south and southeast where the steadiest will fall will be right near 30, 31 or 32. here's a look at the timeline as this moisture bumps into the cold air, we've got the clouds thickening up overnight and after one, two, three in the morning a little light rain and wet snow mixed. quickly over to all wet snow, four, five, six a.m. and just in
5:46 pm
