6:06 pm
hassan to sign the people's pledge, then hassan made a counteroffer. josh mcelveen has all the new details. reporter: that counteraround from hassan is going over like a lead balloon with the ayotte campaign, and both sides are accusing the other of playing politics. during a taping of closeup airing sunday, governor hassan said when it comes to campaign finance reform, she's all for it. >> i think we should overturn the citizens united case, i differ with my opponent on that issue. and i was encouraged when she suggested that we take the people's pledge. josh: but instead of signing it, hassan made ayotte a counteroffer, suggesting a complete $15 million overall spending cap for each campaign. but friday ayotte accused hassan of trying to move the goal post. >> don't be fooled by governor hassan's response. clearly she is not addressing the underlying issue which is third parties special interest spending.
6:07 pm
war chests, ayotte has a big end with more than $6 million cash on hand. hassan has under $2 million. but when it comes to ayotte projecting the spending cap counteroffer that hassan proposed, the governor called it business as usual, washington style. >> the senator ayotte sent out a statement that indicates that she's taking the lead from washington and say take it or leave it to me. >> clearly her response shows you that she doesn't want to keep this spending out of the race, and it's really just politician speak for i don't want to sign the people's pledge. josh: as the senate race becomes the tallest big in new hampshire, it appears what might have been -- it threatens to get heated in a hurry. tom: a new hampshire man is going to court after his electronic cigarette exploded in his pocket. shelley: up next at 6:00, he and his attorney tell news 9 the two parties they say are to blame

6:11 pm
warnings should be given. >> this kind of battery thing is like with parents and everything, they gotta treat it like a gun, they gotta hide it in high cabinets, it's shiny and yellow, a kid could get ahold of it, these things are dangerous. shelley: we reached out to the store he bought pretty, they declined to comment. the company in china who manufactures it did not answer our questions. tom: if the weather forecast has you searching for a warmer place, we might have an idea for you. the new hampshire ork sid society is celebrating its 25th annual show in nashua this weekend. with beauty around every corner it's a perfect valentine's weekend date, plus orchids remain in bloom for about three months, and that will certainly outlast any rose bouquet. >> it's the start of spring, you got flowers inside here. you can take them home, can you
6:12 pm
supplies you need for the orchids, lots of color, and then in the summertime can you put them outside. get out of the cold. tom: there's your pitch for you. the show is at the court yard marriott in nashua, runs through sunday. shelley: that is a well timed event. mike: nothing like it. head on down, and stay warm this weekend. we do have that frigid feel on the way. we had it early this morning whrmt that wind chill warning
6:13 pm
6:14 pm
6:15 pm
mike: bitterly cold this morning. some spots below zero for the first time this season, including concord and points north and west. even south into nashua, time lapse out at the coast where we saw sunshine and a few high clouds. the winds not all that bad. so the wind chill not much of an issue. late this morning and afternoon. that will change in a big way starting tomorrow. coldest so far of the season through the course of this weekend, with the wind chill warning starting tomorrow evening and lasting right through sunday morning. warming early next week, and believe it or not after all the talk of frigid temperatures and wind chills, the next storm will likely be snow quickly over to a mix and then rain on tuesday. speaking of snow, nothing over new hampshire right now, the evening will be dry, but the arctic front really setting the stage and triggering the big
6:16 pm
through early tomorrow morning. so again for this evening just a scattering of flurries may develop late evening up north. outside of that it's dry. then during the predawn hours that boundary moves on through. future cast is not connecting the dots here with snow showers all the way down into southern parts of new england. but is there a chance that any one given community even south of the lakes region may see a brief snow shower or squall during the early part of saturday. once that clears we're in the clear for snow, except up north with flurries continuing, and everyone gets in on the wind and those frigid temperatures. so where do we start off? right now it's down to 9 in berlin, upper teens near 20 on south. overfight tonight it will not be as cold as it was last night. so even though we are talking about frigid temperatures, tonight will only be seasonably chilly. winds are light out of the southwest and clouds are moving in. so again it's not bitterly cold tonight, especially compared to what's heading in our direction. here it is, that arctic surge
6:17 pm
canada and the jet stream locks it in for tomorrow, right on into sunday. but you'll also notice by later sunday afternoon it begins to show signs of retreating to the north, so that by presidents day and tuesday it well out of here and it allows temperatures to climb back up above freezing, that means the next storm will likely be snow going over to a mix and eventually over to rain. wind chills again the big concern for tomorrow, starting off above zero, but by the afternoon we dip down between 10 and 20 below up north, single numbers below elsewhere. later in the afternoon it's 20 to 30 below wind chills, and that's when you may experience frostbite in a matter of only 10 to 15 minutes. so you really have to limit your time outdoors later tomorrow into early sunday. assume wind chills at that time. later sunday afternoon, the winds go a little lighter, temperatures get back up above zero, and that means the wind chills will be frigid but not as dangerous as well we'll experience tomorrow afternoon
6:18 pm
there's that wind chill warning that kicks in tomorrow evening through early on sunday. highs tomorrow starting off in the teens south, single digits north, but they will fall during the afternoon to near zero north, and around 10 or 11 along the coastline. after a frigid sunday, it warms up a little bit on metropolitan day, tuesday starts to snow, ends up as a mix north and rain elsewhere, and then it dries out, mild on wednesday before it cools down the end of next week. want to do some skiing, best hours saturday morning, very late sunday, and all of presidents day. because in between it will be real tough. tom: okay, love that term, seasonably chilly when it's 7 degrees. all right, let's jump over to jamie. jamie: yes, sir, getting ready for some friday night hockey, u.n.h. and vermont.
