NH1 FIRST ALERT WEATHER WARNING: Messy commute expected on Seacoast, southern tier
We continue to watch for accumulating snow just in time for the Monday morning commute. I am beginning to be more & more concerned of some real problems heading into Boston as many will be heading on to snow covered roads to get to work.
A low will be tracking SE of New England tonight and tomorrow morning. It will begin to spread in snow into Southern New England later tonight. Snow will begin to fall in Southern New Hampshire after midnight. The heaviest snow will fall across Southern New England, especially from Boston points south where an intense band of snow will push through during the predawn hours leaving many roads slippery and snow covered by sunrise. Gusty NE winds will be at the coast with low visibility in blowing snow.
Again the worst of this storm will be in Southern New England, and across eastern MA. Heading south Monday morning you should expect a very slow ride into Boston. Numerous accidents and spin outs are likely. Meanwhile, across New Hampshire, conditions will be quite a bit different. Snow spreads into SNH after midnight and fills in during the pre dawn hours across The Seacoast. There will be a sharp cut off from the snow once north of Manchester.
Accumulations will be lighter from the snow happening in Southern New England, but there will still be the potential for slow, slippery travel and some snow covered roads early Monday morning from Hillsboro to Rockingham county and into portions of Strafford county. Snow will begging to taper off as the morning progresses. The heaviest snow happens before 8 AM. Snow will be tapering off later Monday morning with a breezy blustery afternoon as skies will become Partly sunny.
Please make preparations and plans to avoid traveling in the worst of this storm, especially if you will be around Eastern MA.
