it was a beautiful day in southern new hampshire. we had bright sunshine. there's a times lapse from portsmouth and then late in the day clouds began to increase. that's how it's been throughout the evening. we do have a lot of clouds overhead but those should be thing out pretty soon as this latest threat of rain showers ends. but it was a different story in the northern part of the state where clouds and even some showers held on for much of the day. but statewide it was incredibly mild. look at the temperatures that we got today. 58 in concord. 59 degrees in manchester. 58 in nashua in the upper 40's state. this is definitely warm stuff when you consider the average high is only in the mid 30's. look at where we stand now. still 50 degrees in manchester. 49 in portsmouth. 45 in concord. we have temperatures in the mid 30's when you get upnorth.
the winds are out of the southwest. so it's bringing in the mild. the winds are relatively light at this hour. the latest three-hour loop of the satellite radar shows you where the rain had been coming down especially in central new hampshire. but it kind of fizzled out. and we just have a few lingering rain showers and spits of rain over the white mountains and even some higher elevations snow showers too. but that's all that we've got from this system. it's wrapping up. you can make out how the clouds are beginning to clear out. i wouldn't be surprised by early tomorrow morning almost all of us get to see the sunshine. it will be a brighter day tomorrow. we'll call it a mix of clouds. this is about 7:00 and you see the clouds lingering north of the natches. but southern new hampshire looking good with sunshine. a few passing clouds but it will

showers but then some much milder air comes in. look at this. we'll have high temperatures on wednesday and into thursday in the 40's. so with this next storm system approaching, it will easily be bringing in mainly rain for us. it looks like it could even be some heavy rain by the time we get to thursday afternoon. but then we're back to cooler temperatures by the end of next week friday and saturday. dryer. but temperatures will be in the 30's for high. stephanie, it's kind of one of these crazy examples today again of how extreme this winter has been. a week ago, you know, i was running out to warm-up my car and now it's 50 degrees in manchester at this hour. stephanie: only in new hampshire. that looks like a spring forecast. today. stephanie: the bruins are
