NH1 FIRST ALERT WEATHER: How is the snow going to impact the NH Primary?

NH1 Chief Meteorologist -

CONCORD - We already know it's snowing.

A widespread 3-6 inches of snow is likely to fall across New Hampshire. It started Monday afternoon and will last right through Monday night.

Last minute get-out-the-vote rallies will be a little harder to get to because of snow covered roads and slower, slippery travel. Please use caution traveling in the evening.

The snow will be ending by 3-4 a.m. on Tuesday morning. It will start off with snow covered roads, and slippery travel for the morning commute, but I expect roads to be rapidly improving after the sun comes up.

Most highways should be in pretty good shape by 8 a.m. and secondary roads will improve by 9 a.m.

Despite the slick early morning start, weather will not be an issue for voters. Cloudy skies, lighter winds with highs near 28 degrees by the afternoon.
