NH Weather Balmy, Record Turnout Expected (AP, 1/07/08)

A few days ago, temperatures fought to get above zero as candidates fought for votes in New Hampshire, but Old Man Winter is giving the state a break, with temperatures predicted to soar into the 50s as voters prepared to turn out in potential record numbers.

"It's a traditional part of winter, when you get your January thaw, then it turns cold again and breaks your heart," said National Weather Service meteorologist Art Lester.

Just last week, campaigners and candidates were bundled head to foot, walking gingerly on icy sidewalks and driving on snow-covered roads.


John McCain and Bill Clinton were both in town today and the place was packed.
