Another snow storm has NH in its path, this one starting Wednesday morning
A storm moving in from the Southeast Wednesday morning could drop as much as 8 to 10 inches of snow from Concord north to the Lakes Region, about six inches in Keene, and 10 to 14 inches in North Conway and the White Mountains, the National Weather Service said Tuesday.
Manchester is forecast to get 4 to 6 inches. The city's snow totals will vary widely, with elevated areas and those on the western side of the city seeing more snow, while riverside and low-lying areas getting less snow and more rain. That's because the rain-snow line is expected to hover over the Queen City during the day-long storm.
"I wouldn't be surprised to see one side of (Manchester) get 6 inches and those on the other side of town get only 2. You are really that close to where the rain-snow line meets," said Margaret Curtis, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine.
Nashua may see some snow at the start of the storm but should get mostly rain. Porstmouth should get all rain.
"It will probably be a pretty wet storm similar to the storm we just had (last weekend). Whenever we get close to freezing, the snow tends to be real damp snow. Snowman snow, that's what I call it," Curtis said.
High temperatures in southern New Hampshire should hover around freezing. Winds are not expected to be high.
The storm is expected to move in to the southwest corner of the state about 6 a.m. and spread throughout southern New Hampshire by mid-morning, Curtis said. Snow should continue all day Wednesday and begin tapering off Thursday. Lingering snow showers are expected Thursday, but should not bring much accumulation.
