[ echoing ] just sayin'. jean: the free state project says it's reached its goal of getting 0,000 libertarians to pledge to move to new hampshire. so far 20,000 members have already moved to the granite state. the goal is to have the remaining 18,000 come here within five years. this weekend the organization is

5:17 pm
this one sparked by a broken lawn mower. tom: take a look at this, the incredible sight at yosemite national park, it's called fire fall. it shows up at this time of year when the sun hits that water fall at just the right angle to make it glow. there also needs to be enough snow on the ground to help reflect light for that perfect fiery color. mike: that is awesome looking. maybe not so exciting to look up at the cloud cover over warner right now, that gray milky appearance to the sky. the clouds are lowering and thickening ahead of the next system that you do see, producing a little snow back to our west. however, the air mass right now is extremely dry over new hampshire, and even in parts of vermont. so what you're seeing, if any, is just flurries or very light snow showers.
5:18 pm
more saturated by mid evening and the disturbance approaching out of central new york will start to trigger light snow over new hampshire. first begins in western parts of the state shortly after 7:00 or 8:00 this evening, shortly after 8:00 or 9:00 in central sections and a little later near the coast. notice that very narrow band of snow will set up shop just enough to make the roads sliply during the mid to late evening. overnight a little more snow will tend to fill in, but also by that time temperatures begin to warm up at very low levels of the atmosphere, that means it will change over to a light mix or some rain especially concord south and east early saturday morning. one batch of precipitation moves away, lingering snow and showers up north. could see some partial sun and then very late in the afternoon towards evening, another band of through. in terms of snow accumulations, not a whole lot to speak of, especially along the coast. but we could see a coating to
5:19 pm
southeast of manchester through nashua, possibly an inch and a half in a couple spots, generally one to three elsewhere. could i awe few spots in the higher terrain that get up near four or five. for more on the weekend, here's haley. hayley: we do have she's snow showers moving through, but the good news is we'll likely have a break midday on saturday. so you can still get out and enjoy doing things outdoors, especially with how mild the temperatures will be. here's an event for you to enjoy, the center harbor skate fest, the second annual one, will be going on tomorrow, and it goes from 1:00 to 7:00 p.m. starting at 1:00 they'll have open skating, then at 2:00 they actually have a bonfire going, demonstrations. you can even skate after dark tomorrow night. it ends about 7:00 in the evening, and as you see, temperatures will be quite mild. will climb at center harbor into
5:20 pm
7:00 in the evening to the 30's. if ice skating isn't your thing but skiing or boarding is, here's the forecast for you. tomorrow we might have some mixed showers in the afternoon, about 40 degrees on saturday. then on sunday will be the brighter of the two days, with temperatures in the low 40's as well. so mike now has more on the extended forecast. mike: yes, as you talked about those mild temperatures, they're in here. overnight tonight we'll go from the 30's we are right now into the 20's to around 30 by morning. and that will actually happen during the predawn hours. then towards early morning we'll start to see temperatures climbing back above freeze, that's why that change over to light rain. if we get enough partial sun in southern new hampshire, a couple spots may make a run close to 50. but many will line up in the 40's. again this is the break that should develop during the late morning and early afternoon before more rain showers pivot in late day into the evening. notice the highs for tomorrow,
5:21 pm
it's low 40's across the north country, and in ski country as well as haley just talked about. it's still mild in the lakes region, monadnock region mid 40's. same story around concord, upper 40's in nashua and along the coast. there is a chance that a couple of spots if we squeeze out enough sun may hit 50 tomorrow. snow develops, now watch the roads not in the next couple hours, but mainly after 8:00. i would tend to think that anything that falls at that point is just a few flurries. then the roads could get slick late evening through the overnight. by morning temperatures rise a little in southeastern parts of the state, so that end as a little rain. couple of rain showers tomorrow night, sunday is looking really good, a little breezy, could be a light dusting of snow in southern new hampshire as the next weak system scoots south of us early monday morning. the rest of the day features clearing. sunshine tuesday, next storm chance on wednesday. looks like snow to start, but we

of the weekend, and then temperatures take off as we go through saturday and on sunday. a wintery start means light snow for many tonight, just enough to make it slick on area roads. then a good part of the day tomorrow the temperatures will be climbing well into the 40's. mixed showers will end early saturday. enough warm air creeps in by morning so we will see the changeover to a little light rain and then milder through the weekend will give way to a cooler stretch next week as the stormy pattern continues, even no the next couple of systems we're tracking for tonight, early tomorrow and another one early monday morning that mainly scoots out, stronger once will try to come close to us and affect us in one form or another during the middle and end of next week. take a look right now at doppler radar showing some action here. the air mass is very dry, could be a few light snow showers that try to scoot in to the upper
5:48 pm
after about another hour or so. then more snow will fill in over eastern new york and move in during the course of the mid to late evening. not a lot of snowfall tonight and tomorrow morning. then when it changes over to rain, that will mark an end to any accumulation from concord points south and east early saturday morning. speaking of tomorrow, we've got some breaks of sunshine that will develop, mid to late morning into the early afternoon, boosting temperatures up near 50. but mid to upper 40's for many, and then a line of rain showers will develop and move in very late day in the upper valley and across the rest of the state as we advance into tomorrow evening. a dry sunday, most of the day looking good after a dusting of snow, possibility over southern new hampshire, and even tuesday looks fairly quiet. but beyond that it does turn stormy likely by wednesday, in one form or another. in terms of snow projections, this is one computer model painting about an inch to inch
