FIRST ALERT WEATHER WARNING: Joe Knows - Here's what to expect with Tuesday's NH snow
NH1 Chief Meteorologist - NH1.com
CONCORD - Snow will be spreading in the Granite State during the later afternoon on Tuesday.
The first flakes will begin flying shortly after 3 p.m.
Snow will begin to fill in and become steadier around 5 p.m. - just in time for the evening commute.
The heaviest snow will happen somewhere between 6-9 p.m. as a narrow band of snow will cross the Granite state. Conditions on the roads will become slippery without the sun and cool air in place.
A storm will begin to deepen off the coast this evening, but will happen a little too late, and will track far enough away that we should be spared any heavy snow. Snow will be ending tonight, but scattered snow showers will linger through midnight and the early morning hours of Wednesday.
Because of the short window of snowfall, accumulations will be held to minor amounts with a general 1-3" across most of the state. Locally heavier amounts of 4 to 6 inches will be possible in our mountains, Coos and Carroll Counties in higher elevations and in any heavier bands of snow which could form.
Take a look at some of the hourly projections below.
A more significant snowfall will be heading our way on Saturday.
We will have more updates on that coming up on NH1 News tonight at 5, 6 and 10 on WBIN-TV and NH1.com!
