degrees. a cool start and guess what? we're only going to add a few degrees onto where we stand right now. thanks to the showers and some fog, we've got lower visibility in many locations. these are miles of visibility. two and a half mile visibility in the upper valley. four miles visibility in manchester. and in terms of rainfall amounts, a couple hundredths of an inch through midnight. from midnight on, a little bit more. this is certa it's a start and we'll see the rain fall at times and it could continue at times through the day today as well. so we'll keep that going, as long as we can here with the rain showers moving across the state right now, all over. western new hampshire, you're going to see-- you're largely done with most of the rain that stacks up in terms of amounts. you can see a few showers, and the focus is slowly moving eastward. so, gradually through the day,

6:45 am
than that, and it all has to do with the wind speed and also how much water and storm surge, it can push ashore. once you get up to category 3, that's what we consider a major storm and category 4, that's when major damage occurs due to storm surge and the winds. category 5, which it briefly was. things start to disappear. heck, even the flag could blow away at any moment, goes. this is a category 4 storm now and it was a 5 briefly overnight. around here, we're not looking for that right now, but we'll have to wait and see where that storm tracks. there's a slight chance it comes here. temperatures today into the 50 to 55 range with scattered showers. tomorrow, a passing shower, but a lot drier and a couple of degrees warmer. amy: see people posting on facebook their first fire of the season. that cooloff is here, isn't it?
