6:06 pm
tonight the new hampshire republican party is on the attack and it's on behalf of the democratic primary winner bernie sanders. the new hampshire g.o.p. is just one of several groups calling on democratic super delegates to follow the will of the people. josh mcelveen is here to explain. josh: so bernie sanders lost iowa by the slimmest of marriage ins, he clobbered hillary clinton in new hampshire by 22 points. but ultimately it's the democratic delegates who will choose their nominee and right now hillary clinton has a big advantage over sanders regardless of what the voters have to say. it's not a lot of common ground between new hampshire republicans and self described democratic socialist bernie sanders. but on this point the nhgop has the store's back in the form of an online petition. >> there's nothing fair or democratic about a system where bernie sanders beats hillary clinton by over 20 points and leaves our state with the same number of delegates. josh: that's because unlike the republican party democrats are
6:07 pm
party officials or leaders who each have muscle equal to 10,000 ballots in new hampshire, but are not bound by election results. >> it's a corrupt system that allows for party insiders to influence the outcome and overturn even the results of the voice of the people. >> it's silliness, but it's obviously they know they have a problem in november, so they're trying to unsuccessfully drive a wedge amongst democrats in new hampshire. josh: sullivan points to history. in 2008 clinton won the primary but at the convention all the delegates went with the event you nominee, barack obama. john kerry also got unanimous delegate support, despite his split vote in new hampshire. >> in new hampshire we have a tradition at the convention where all the new hampshire democrats in our delegation vote unanimously for the nominee of the party. josh: but in a psych they'll has seen its share of never been seen befores, things could be close to the convention and
6:08 pm
dismiss the popular vote and support who ever they want. another super delegate is governor hassan and she would only say that the convention i a long way off. >> i continue to support hillary clinton as president. i also know that new hampshire democratic delegates have a strong tradition, once we get to a convention we end up casting a unified vote. i expect that to be the case in this election, too. josh: ray buckley is also a super delegate and he released a statement saying, the nhgop stun reeks of desperation, and saying we look forward to trouncing trump up and down the platt in november. tom: also new tonight -- jean: a korean war veteran receives a special honor, the awarm he was given directly from a south korean government. mike: temperatures heading higher over the next 24 hours and that means snow eventually goes over to a mix and even some rain. what follows for the rest of the week coming up.
6:09 pm
6:10 pm
jean: tonight a distinguished honor for a korean war veteran from goffstown. tom: he was on the front lines for more than a year, the korean government wanted to say thank you in a special medal, but for several reasons he missed out. andy hershberger shows us how that changed. reporter: it's been a long journey for this medal to finally land around the neck of 83-year-old korean war veteran charles desalt. >> we cherish it in our hearts. the memory of your sacrifices in
6:11 pm
reporter: desalt was in the combat infantry from 1953 to 54. it was during that time that korean government established the republic of korea war service medal. but u.s. servicemen were barred from wearing medals issued by another country. the defense department changed that in 1999. >> i never expected really anything, you know, like this here. so it's a big vice for me. reporter: the korean government reissued the medal for one year only between 2012 and 2013, when about 200 new hampshire veterans were recognized. but it wasn't until recently that a care giver for dusalt realized he was eligible too. the organization contacted the korean government who made an exception for one more medal. >> he never was one to brag about being in the service, in fact he never really wanted to say much of anything. reporter: charles says he's
6:12 pm
reasons he did it. >> i figured my country needed me to try to help somebody else, you know, so they could be free also. reporter: recognition for service and sacrifice that is well appreciated and long overdue. in goffstown, andy hershberger, wmur news 9. tom: we salute you, charlie. so we've got some mix of mess tonight. mike: that's pretty much it, mix and mess, those are the two m's out there tonight. we've got changes, snow, sleet,
6:13 pm
6:14 pm
tom: tonight as that storm begins to move in, temperatures we're told will start to skyrocket. jean: by tomorrow that could be in the 50's. meteorologist josh judge is live in concord with a look at the big temperature swing on the horizon. josh: it's amazing, jean and tom. the temperature here yesterday morning here right in concord was 40 below zero. that was the wind chill factor. and that was the feels-like temperature. take a look at it on this map here, 40 degrees below zero. we had a huge turn around even to today where it made it up to about 20 or so degrees in concord, and tomorrow an even bigger temperature swing will be on the way as we project
6:15 pm
in concord around the upper 40's, perhaps near 50 with enough warmth making its way here. that's the difference of an amazing 85 to 90 degrees between yesterday morning and tomorrow, for what it will feel like. if you got on an airplane from concord right now where it's 19 degrees, and flew down to florida, you still would have a difference of about 51 degrees, that's the difference from concord to florida, 51 degrees. and the difference from yesterday to tomorrow will be almost 90 degrees. that's how amazing this temperature swing is. but there's also something else coming aalong with the temperature swing, there's a few light snow flurries around here. and there's more on the way, mike haddad has details on that and what else accompanies it. mike: we're going to see a changeover to sleet and freezing rain later tonight and into a overnight.
6:16 pm
commute was dry, but in the last couple hours a dusting of snow making roads a little slick in a few spots. the air temperatures, as josh just mentioned, well below that frozing mark. so right now a batch of light snow making its way in from southern parts of new england in towards new hampshire in the last hour or two, this is in advance of the storm, that is developing to our south. so there's a scattering of light snow showers, may add up, another dusting in a few spots over towards the coastline, lakes region points north, possibly an additional half inch between now and 6:30 or 7:00. all of that clears and then we track the you the storm. the leading end of it now making inroads in parts of massachusetts, and will make it to the lakes region near 8:30, and farther northern by 10:00, 10:30. beyond that it gets fricke. steady snow accumulates, a few inches, lower amounts far southern parts of the state. higher amounts lakes region and
6:17 pm
but shortly after midnight enough warm air creeps in at mid levels so we see a changeover to sleet. then precipitation will taper off, but by then we're near freezing, so scattered rain or freezing rain showers for the morning commute, even as far north as the heart of the white mountains of any snow on the canadian border starting to go over to a light mix of sleet, freezing rain and rain showers. then steadier rain showers redevelop later in the day and a heavy slug of downpours moves in during the early part of the evening, and should clear quickly later tomorrow night, right back interest developing sun as we go into the day on wednesday. a general one to three-inch snowfall just south of manchester. notice with temperatures well below freezing, eve 2010 we start to see that transition to sleet and rain, it will still be below 32 degrees.
6:18 pm
the coast, mid 30's in nashua and slowly jumping above freezing by the end of the morning commute. so a snowy scenario in manchester, overcast skies give way to snow again, will make the roads slick right through the first part of the overnight. then it's that changeover to sleet and freezing rain and that means it will be real tricky on the roads until we warm up above 32. when does that happen? during the course of the morning commute. so i think the first and middle part of the morning commute will be real tough. end of the commute through midday will see the most dramatic improvement on the roads. in the afternoon it will be well above freezing with scattered rain showers, heavier downhours, upper 40's near 50, a little cooler, but please anally so on wednesday. thursday a few flurries and maybe another bout of snow. doesn't look like a big storm, but unsettled for the start of the weekend. tom: thank you. jamie? jamie: have you watched the nba all-star game last night, you know there was no defense played in this thing.
