couple of drumsticks and it sounded great. a tricky dan the road tomorrow. the critical time when many are heading out, it might start to spit freezing rain out there. look at this beautiful shop this morning. a top mount washington from the observation deck. a little bit of snow on the deck and in the distance, and under cast. the cloudy skies sitting there on the deck atut right over the top of the rest of the presidential range. full sunshine developed their during the late morning and afternoon. temperatures are quite chilly. all below freezing. a few temperatures to watch. one in the valleys, all below freezing. second is mount washington. 27. 19 degrees about four hours ago.
1:24 am
lighter than the cold air sinking in the valleys. that warm air rides on top of it. that is why mount washington is the first to warm up. speaking of warm. another temperature to watch is the ocean, 51 degrees. mild for late november. any onshore component to the wind will drag temperatures above the freezing mark and that will develop by daybreak at the beaches, and then warmer air will move inland during the late part of the morning when it could be tricky. not a lot of heavy rain, 80 1/10 of an inch, but light rain freezing on contact makes a light glaze with temperatures below freezing. watch it as you head out tomorrow morning. the warm air trying to search through the ohio valley and then cooling to the northwest. no real cold air for late november standards. a good part of the country
1:25 am
precipitation. steady rain right now moving in through the great lakes and the ohio valley. it is all rain, no ice or snow. across new england, temperatures across -- low enough for a wintry mix. around 6:00 in the morning, some light and freezing rain breaking out in southwest new hampshire and quickly, between 6:30 and 8:00, we see it move merrimack valley. anything that falls from points these, could be a light blazing around manchester and points north and west where roads could be slick from around 9:00 till 10:00. a wintry mix heads north where it could be tricky for roads at
1:26 am
no re-freeze tomorrow night. overcast skies and upper 30's to lower 40's and another batch of rain comes in. mixing in the mountains. that should be it for mixing with system number two. 40's to around 50. we could have an inch to 1.5 inches of rain in central and southern new hampshire. considering the ground is not frozen yet, that would put an 1-3 inches of snow tomorrow before it changes to rain. i don't think we will see it washed out but 6:00 till 10:00, critical times on the road. stay tuned for updates. tom: good idea. let's go to jason king.
