we've got wind out of the northeast, about 5 to 10 miles per hour, a little higher in a few spots in the mountains this morning. and we take a look there at the temperatures, which are certainly on the cool side today. they're starting off, either side of 50 degrees. which is above average for this time of the morning, but by the time we get to the afternoon. only going to have gained a little bit of temperature, of degrees out there and so, we'll only be in the mid and upper 50's this afternoon, similar to where we were maybe a little higher. between 55 and 60 for highs today. the average high is 66 for concord. so we'll certainly be well below average for this time of year. incidentally, here is your statistics in the almanac today. the sunrise 6:45 and the sunset keeps getting earlier, sunset 6:25 this evening. all right. here is look around some of the region. sanbornton, a couple of raindrops on the lens this morning of the web-cam and plenty of clouds, and the clouds

up in this region. the odds are small that it moves over new england, but certainly there, right now the odds favor it staying out to sea, but it's close enough we have to keep a close eye on it. clouds, showers, sprinkles or drizzle at times, but largely, especially this afternoon, i think we're going to be a little drier out there than we were, especially compared to yesterday and a degree or two warmer. tonight, into tomorrow, more clouds, more chances for a couple of showers here and there warmer tomorrow, into the 60's for tomorrow. and then as we get to tuesday morning and the early drizzle clears away along with the clouds and we start to see improvement and clearing skies by tuesday afternoon. that's the good news here, over the next few days, an inch or two, rather 1/10 of an inch or two or three is what we're expecting. today the highs in the 50's and tonight, we're down near 50 again and tomorrow, a little bit warmer, as you can see, upper 60's to near 70 degrees will be
