while that is cold, it's not all that frigid for late november. so we'll start to see that temperature climbing over the next self hours. and across the rest of the state where we're just a limb above freezing, clear skies and light winds will combine to help the temperature tumble back interest the 20's by early morning. this is in the seasonable zone for this time of year. that not much of an issue. what is an issue is mild air surging in from the south overriding the cooler air creating a cloud an -- canopy and some rain. before we get into the steady rain we're going to see a bit of a wintery mix move in, and then maybe some beneficial rain, or not. and will it help with the drought, josh is here with a look with a drought update. josh j.: thanks, mike. we're certainly going to be watching the drought as far as how much rain we've had this year and what we're going to be seeing over the next several
for concord. keep in mind that if you're in southeastern new hampshire, the drought is a little bit worse there, as i'll show you in a moment. but in concord, you're eight inches behind, we have made some head way on that drought. notice since september we're just about average, although the last month, this month we are a little over an inch and a half to two inches behind thus far. here's where the current drought statistics stand. the farther north you head, the closer to average we severe drought in central and southern new hampshire. but the extreme drought area has shrunken a bit. the chance of rain this week, it virtually a 100% chance both tomorrow and wednesday. mike will detail that for you in a couple of minutes. how much could we see, well, the first batch, and there's the second batch of rain in southern new hampshire, could be one and
locations. lesser amounts the farther you head to north. of course this is very beneficial rain for a couple of reasons. biggest being that the ground is still unfrozen, so the rain sinks in and that helps the water table rise. of course when it's frozen the water just runs off and the water table remains the same. so that's why it's so important. we'll talk about these temperatures that you'll be expecting the next couple minutes, mike has that. mike: yes, any rain we can get over the next week or two before the ground freezes, certainly beneficial. while ski areas don't want a lot. rain, i think you have plenty of man made snow that will be able to absorb some of the rain. temperatures in the predawn very close to 30, 31, 32 degrees. so if you're traveling through four, five or 6:00 a.m., notice
9:00, we're still near freezing with light rain moving in, could start as a wintery mix of sleet, wet snow and rain concord north and west. light rain to the south. by the afternoon it goes over to all rain. while wet snow could linger for a couple of hours. the evening commute will be wet, the morning commute will be wet. but to the north and west, could be icily on untreated surfaces. next system moves in wednesday afternoon, could bete soaker wednesday afternoon into wednesday night. mainly dry to follow, a good part of next weekend looking seasonably cool. could be another storm to contend with early next week, but true to track tomorrow and later wednesday. tom: thanks. flu season already in full swing. jean: still aahead, the message for expecting mothers who may be thinking about skipping the vaccine. tom: plus it is cyber machine day and why experts think the

what they found is that pregnant women did not have a greater risk of having a child with autism. yet more support for pregnant women to get the shot. especially since these women are considered to be a vulnerable group, and the effects of the flu in moms to be can pose health cial -- risks to babies in the womb. so roll up are sleeve, it's a si concerns later and that's nothing to sneeze at. jean: a man faces a judge months after a deadly drunk driving crash in boston. tom: next, what else police uncovered about the driver, after he allegedly slammed into an airport shuttle, kill two paynes. jean: the mystery deepening tonight over the indication of a california mother found beaten and chained on the side of a road weeks after she vanished
