Clayton Stiver's Winter Storm Update for Saturday Night into Sunday Morning
NH1 Chief Meteorologist - NH1.com
Winter Storm WARNING in effect from the National Weather Service for most of the Granite State until 10am Sunday. For Eastern Hillsborough County including Manchester and Nashua, and Rockingham County, a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 7am Sunday.
From Monadnock up through the Central Merrimack Valley and Lakes Region, anywhere from 3"-5" of snow/sleet can be expected. The Upper Valley through the Mountains and Great North Woods may be talking 5"-8" of snow/sleet. The southern Merrimack Valley including Manchester, Nashua, and then points east through Rockingham County and the immediate Seacoast may be talking more like 1"-3" of snow/sleet.
Early Sunday, warmer air pushes through transition any snow and sleet to plain old rain. The Mountains and North Country may hang on to sub-freezing temps a little longer and see a longer duration of sleet and/or freezing rain. By Sunday afternoon, many spots in NH look to see temps well in the 40s.
For ice accumulations from freezing rain, many folks are probably talking up to .10" but some spots from western Cheshire and western Sullivan Counties up through Grafton, Carroll, and Coos Counties could be talking more like .10"-.25" While these are not overly impressive amounts, as we know it doesn't take much of a glaze of ice to make for problems.
