7:46 am
josh: waking up with thick fog in so many locations it will take a while to burn off. take a look at this photo. look at the fog, this is courtesy of steel hill resorts overlooking the lake here in sanbornton. this is all fog here. you can see the mountain in the distance and above the fog, partly sunny skies, so if you are at higher elevations like this, you may be seeing some breaks of sun. meanwhile, the areas na are lower, lots of this fog around and check down at th snow on the ground there as well. just a great shot. 32 degrees there in that region of the state and we look around the fog and the visibility, so low, in many spots, these are the airports reporting in, about a quarter mile visibility in concord, manchester, nashua and keene and many locations concord, a quarter mile
7:47 am
and here is the wind. sometimes we look to the wind to help disperse the fog, not going to really help with wind this light and variable this morning. so, that fog needs to burn off on its own. it takes a while to do it. there's a dense fog advisory in effect until 9:00, but a lot of places see it lasting beyond that. here are your temperatures, notice something similar about them. they're close together, thanks to the fog that limits the amount that the temperatures can go up and down. that's why it's so simila skies, but these clouds, also, will fill in, thanks to the clipper system off to the west and that will be pushing in. as it does so, it brings a risk of scattered showers. notice how a lot of them are snow right now. but it's because of the time of day it's going to be arriving, they'll be falling in most granite state, very scattered in nature. you may stay dry and it's not a washout by any stretch.
7:48 am
through. here is how it looks on futurecast. notice how it breaks apart, but we do still see some showers or sprinkles or even some drizzle at times through the day today. and in the mountains that could be in the form of mixed showers or snow. but we're clearing out overnight into tomorrow. we see clouds and breaks of sunshine. partly sunny for tomorrow. the one exception in and around the mountains where tomorrow, the wind picks up out of the northwest and banks in the mountains and so often the case, we s in the mountains, localized, of course, and so keep that in mind, we get into monday and we see nonstop sunshine on monday with seasonable temperatures, then late monday, you start seeing this off to our west and that's our next rain chance. moving in. in fact, that rain chance will really be felt rather tuesday afternoon, tuesday night. off and on on wednesday, and off and on on thursday as well. and those days together,
7:49 am
could bring us several inches of much-needed rain. so your highs today will be in the lower half of the 40's around the granite state. tomorrow, about the same. maybe a degree or two cooler, more sunshine, breezy, tomorrow, with mountain snow showers, sunny on monday and despite the temperatures rising this week, we've got a good chance of rain and we really need more rain before the ground freezes over and it does appear likely we'll see good doses this week. >> we're doing lights and greens at my >> not really. you know what we're going to try this year, one of the projector things. amy: that's got you written all over it. we want you to show us your lights. josh: ok. amy: visiting with santa, there's plenty to do, what's happening, new hampshire? >> holiday cheer will fill the streets of nashua today as the city marks 23 years of the
