NH1 FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Parts of NH now under Winter Storm Warning
NH1 Chief Meteorologist - NH1.com
Snow continues to fall across New Hampshire this morning.
The snow will last into the afternoon but will be ending from west to east during the mid-afternoon hours. I expect the snow to be completely over around 4 p.m.
Bands of heavy wet snow are reducing visibility to below a half mile. At times snow is falling up to an in per hour in the heavy bands. Secondary roads a very slippery and snow covered. Numerous accidents and spin out are being reported. The wet snow is sticking to trees, which could snap on power lines and create isolated outages.
So far no major issues. The main highways are in decent shape, but are getting slushy and snow covered now with still several more hours to go.
Travel is possible, but not recommended. Expect delays and please travel slow with caution.
The low is currently tracking Southeast of New England. As it pulls away, the snow will begin to taper off with it later this afternoon. A dry, cool evening with the potential for icy travel with temps remaining below 32 with clearing skies.
The National Weather Service has upgraded Rockingham county to a Winter Storm Warning through 3 PM this afternoon where up to 6-8" of snow could fall. The Winter Weather Advisory has expanded to include Belknap, Cheshire, Carroll County for accumulations which could exceed 3" of snow fall today.
