Winter Storm Update for Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015


The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for much of the state beginning 10 p.m. Monday night to 4 a.m. Wednesday.

In Southern New Hampshire snow will begin coming down steadily Monday evening around 10 p.m. and will pick up significantly early Tuesday morning. Winds will be between 15-30 MPH with gusts up to 50 MPH at the coast.

Due to high winds some areas could see 1-2 feet of snow with visibility conditions reduced to one quarter mile or less at times. Temperatures will be in the teens and low twenties. Coastal flooding and beach erosion is also possible.

The heavy snow will lead to dangerous traveling conditions plus a high potential for power outages and down trees. For most of the state, this storm has not yet been termed a "blizzard."

Coastal areas in Massachusetts, Maine, and in New Hampshire have been declared a blizzard due to these criteria:

1. Sustained Winds or Frequent Gusts 35 MPH or Greater
2. Visibility Reduced Below 1/4 Mile
3. These conditions must prevail for 3 hours or longer
