6:17 am
up a little bit after the sunrises so by later this morning, and into the afternoon, a bit breezy, certainly nothing to worry about in terms of any damage, but you'll notice it and make it feel colder is the point. there's the clouds that have been eroding all night long and clear skies out there and they'll be around for the day today. a few clouds to our west, but most of these are coming off of lake ontario with lake effect snow showers, some of them could drift through, we could see partly to mostly sunny skies through the day today. again, breezy, but fairly bright out there going through your saturday. take a look at it here on futurecast, sunshine, just a few clouds here and there. now, a weak little system will come through and brush by northern new hampshire tonight. what does that mean? that, a couple of light snow periods or a snow shower or two, a possibility, in northern new hampshire overnight into tomorrow morning. the rest of us are cloudy to partly cloudy, with temperatures down in the 20's tonight.

for tomorrow, holy moly, look at those temperatures. 40's and even lower 50's are on the maps for tomorrow, and that will stick around into monday, as well, as those temperatures on monday hanging around 50 degrees as well. it starts falling, so the last day of february, the 29th. leap day is going to be a mild one. we start march off on the mild side as well. gradually falling through, the biggest wild card in the forecast this week will be wednesday that we'll be watching. amy: ok. thanks, josh. tomorrow marks the 25th anniversary of the end of the gulf war. last night marines from new hampshire who served overseas held a get together at murphy's tap ramp. josh: jean mackin has this. jean: the 25th marine division are back together again. >> it's like coming home, it really was.

6:46 am
20's overnight tonight and then tomorrow, as i mentioned, those temperatures are in the upper 40's and lower 50's, even northern new hampshire, perhaps the lower 40's tomorrow. a couple of overnight flakes in the mountains and then tomorrow, where intervals of clouds and sun and we're all about the 50 degree mark, the other side of it the next couple of days to wrap up february and begin march. the biggest question mark is wednesday, mixed precipitation going over to rain showers, but we'll watch it. >> ok, thanks, josh. it's 6:46. stories. a possible record in the opioid, it could be the deadliest months for od's in queen city history. 51 suspected overdoses in deadly. ice concerns, despite ice concerns, organizers of the great meredith ice fishing derby
