then the lighter rain in the great north woods, but eventually the downpours will fill in there. there's a defined back end racing through, and as that rain pulls in the wind begin to crank up, gusting to 35 at the coast, 32 in jaffrey and 20 to 30 miles elsewhere. we could see wind gusts between now and 8:00 tonight of over 40 miles per hour, so there could be scattered power outages between now and then. but again the back edge the storm is just hours away from clearing new hampshire. we'll look at the rest of the week in a few minutes. jean: drivers are running into heavy downpours out there. here's a live view of traffic in windham, but you can see things are still moving pretty well. mike cronin is in salem. reporter: it's so typical, right, we finally get used to the cold temperatures and snow and then new england surprises us again. this time with warmer

i wanted to show you what's going on here in terms of the wind. i've been having to hang onto the umbrella pretty heavily at times, as it almost gets blown away from me. sometimes the winds are gusting, we have a high wind warning in effect at the seacoast and most of southeastern new hampshire is under a winter advisory, excuse me, a wind advisory. so it's been certainly challenging in terms of the winds. the winds are not everywhere, but it all depends on your elevation. take a look at the winds, the sustained wind have certainly been causing problems and some of the wind gusts that we're showing you here, 35 miles per hour in portsmouth, 33 miles per hour in jaffrey, and atop mount washington as high as 90 to 95 miles per hour. back in salem, certainly nothing quite like that, but it's definitely been challenging, and driving is challenging as well. and of course i talked about the heavy rain, it is really pouring here in salem.
about the rain and everything else going on too, right? mike: that's right. we've got so many change police the last 12 hours, as you mentioned, from the snow and ice now into heavy rain, we'll check in with you later on. take a look at the conditions at the coast this morning. market square right at 5:31, was not snowing at that time but we still had temperatures near or below freezing. some slush and snow still on the roads, but quickly as temperatures did climb into the 30's it turned over to very light rain showers and now the roads are primarily wet, with the heavy downpours moving in, watch out for significant ponding, for a couple of reasons. one the intensity of the rain, second we also have the ground still frozen, so again some of that water tends to pool where you don't want it. so it could create some issues for the next couple hours. also notice on our radar scopes that this is a defined back end in eastern new york state. that will be racing through over the next hour or two. right now the monadnock region
about to let up the places like keene, but still steady in and around peterborough and points east of the merrimack valley, lakes region and just about to enter the coast as well. farther to the north, steadier rain in the great north woods. but through the heart of the white mountains and around franconia notch, that's where the heavy rain is beginning to build in from. the back end is quickly pulling in through a good part of connecticut, now central and western portions of massachusetts. i'd say about another hour, hour and a half to two hours and all the heavy rain is gone. here it is on future cast. notice by 7:00 or 8:00 no more heavy rain, just a few lingering light showers to the north. the only issues from here on out after 7:00 or 8:00 will be the ponding on the roads. and there could be refreeze and black ice on the roads as we talk about the winds letting up overnight as well. tomorrow we've got sunshine, a little breeze out of the
we'll be back in the 30's and lower 40's, and plenty of sun and even cold earthquake right back to average as we go into the day on thursday. notice the temperatures right now, lining up in the upper 40's to near 50 up north. in some parts of new hampshire it took all morning and through at least the early to mid afternoon to get up to 50 degrees. but we have reached that mark, in concord, laconia, manchester and monadnock region and a little below that in plymouth, you were stuck at 33 until 3:00 but now the warmer air has made it in. even at the coast holding on to 40s. overnight tonight the rain pulls away, skies partially clear, and very strong winds this evening that could lead to scattered outages will abate. what that means for us is a chance that we get down near freezing, and with standing water still left on the roads there could be some black ice very late. notice the cooler air building in from the west. we will see a return to a seasonably chilly pattern later
especially tomorrow night right through friday morning. beyond that time frame the weather pattern relatively quiet into bring night. and then later friday night, early saturday the next system moves in. this one not a whole lot of moisture witness, so there could be snow that develops especially in northern and central new hampshire, light snow or mix far south. partial sunshine back in here for sunday and early next week, looks pretty good, next big storm threat could be the middle of next week, but that's still seven or eight days out. so try to get rid of this first one and enjoy some quiet for a couple of days. josh: a proposal today could stamps. jean: up next what this would shelves. josh: and new details about the
josh: the federal government wants to make it easier for those on food stamps to eat healthier. today the agriculture department unveiled new rules that would require retailers to accept food stamps to carry at least 168 items considered healthy. that includes fruits, vegetables, meats and bread. more than 46 million americans currently receive food stamps. the school lunch program at manchester's parker varney school is getting a makeover.
and teachers organizedded a survey, they asked 4,000 students across the city how to improve school lunches and gave their findings to the school board. student says they want more fresh fruits, vegetables, and triangle pizza instead of the square cafeteria pizza. >> their voice matters, and if they want to change something they can do it. jean: thanks to the changes, students are eating more school lunches, because they asked for meals to be made on site, they will construct a new kitchen at no cost to taxpayers. josh: eat your veggies and get pizza, pretty good deal. still ahead -- >> there's no rhyme or reason for this one. jean: she is okay, but she was impaled by floor boards on the court, now investigators are investigating this bizarre

mike: downpours and gusty winds for some now as the back edge of a storm races through. the changes that follow through the rest of the week. jean: a man remains sedated after an assault that nearly cost him his life. police say his attacker admitted to the whole thing. >> we didn't take our eyes off him. josh: race for rescue, three people are recovering after a close call on boston harbor. jean: ask back behind bars, how this fugitive nearly got away after a mixup halfway across the country. jean: rain has returned to new hampshire tonight, melting away the snow that was falling at this time yesterday. welcome back, i'm jean mackin. josh: i'm josh mcelveen. here's a live look at concord,
has been a bit confusing, but it's also creating headaches out on the roads. let's get to chief meteorologist mike haddad with the latest. mike: right now it's ponding, and also low visibility due to fog, that's the primary concern. two hands on the wheel, because the winds will be blowing out of the south, 20, 30, maybe 40 plus miles per hour for the next couple hours. take a look at radar, fairly active over new hampshire right now, most of the heavy rain from now up until about 6:30 or 7:00. then this thing is out of here in terms of precipitation. notice already shutting off in the monadnock region, the rain a lot lighter than it is in the merrimack valley and points north and east. notice farther to the north it's filling in through the mount washington valley, southern parts of the great north woods. a defined back end quickly moves in from around 6:00 through 8:00, from west to east, and that means the rest of new hampshire farther to the north and east of the lakes region will see the rain exiting around that 8:00 time frame. we're also seeing gusty winds along the band of heavy rain and
notice some gusts over 35 miles per hour and in addition to those gusts up to 35 or 40, we also have the ponding on the roads. so a couple concerns for the next couple hours, eventually the winds will shut down and the rain will let up. so what does that mean for very late tonight? do we see any refreeze? will temperatures fall enough to get back near freezing? and with a about the rest of the week? all of that straight ahead. josh: tonight details about a beating that was so serious the victim was close to death when he was flown to the hospital. the suspect accused of slamming the victim's head into a sliding van door. reporter: right now a tilton man is in jail and another in the hospital in critical but stable condition, after an alleged assault this past weekend in north field. hunter faces two charges, one for first degree assault after alley beating 3 #-year-old charles eisenhower outside a

>> so given the severity of the offense, the brutality of this offense, the fact that the defendant actually did admit to committing this offense with the police department through interviews, again, this offense, the victim was touch and go for a little while. reporter: pazinski also faces a misdemeanor drug charge. josh: a two-time fugitive is back the police custody, police say 27-year-old d.nyonee was arrested sunday, he was wanted after rile lating a supervised release. he was arrested in minnesota, police didn't realize who he was because he used a fake name. he has since been arrested in manchester. and new details in the el faro sinking emerged today during a coast guard hearing. the freighter's captain e-mailed his superiors the day before the sinking in a hurricane, asking

right along the band of heavy rain, and just to the west of it. so we could see some gusts over 40 to 45 miles per hour in spots, and that may lead to scattered power outages between now and 9:00 this evening. steady rain up north, becoming heavier in parts of the great north woods, around berlin, north and west up to about colebrook, then through the mount washington valley into the heart of the lakes region. is there a cold side to the storm now, we saw it earlier today and last night, but right now it back to the west and that will lift to the north, no more change over to snow as i see it now between now and seven or it a this evening. notice again back edge racing through in the next hour, hour and a half, couple of lingering showers may hit the mountains between 7:00 and 8:00, then it's mainly dry with gusty win out of the south. eventually they turn around to the northwest, so that will bring our temperatures closer to average in terms hives for this time of year.

do the trick, but again if you're going to be out there late tonight just keep in mine that if it looks damp it could be a little bit on the icy side. some sunshine tomorrow, more sun on thursday, squeezed in between a snow shower up north wednesday night. friday looking pretty good, a weak system will move through later friday evening into saturday morning, some steadier snow up north, maybe a few inches for ski country, that would be great, and just a little light snow in southern new hampshire. rest of the weekend looking pretty good. jean: thanks, mike. let's start by saying she's okay. a middle school basketball player is recovering after chef was injured in a freak accident. josh: the 14-year-old fell and slid on the court, that's when she was impaled by a splintered floor board. the tournament organizer says he hasn't ever seen anything like this. >> it was three to four inches long and some parts of it, between a quarter and half inch deep. josh: ouch.
