Winter storm brings a foot of snow to most of NH
The storm has left difficult driving conditions on Granite State roads. Public works crews have been working to clear snow, but driving conditions are still difficult.
"Some areas are worse than others, the plow trucks are trying to get ahead of the game, they're doing their best," said State Police Lt. Kevin Duffy. "If you can delay by a couple of hours or even forgo going out, that would be my advice – let them do their jobs and hope for wet and black pavement.
National Weather Service observers reported snow totals raging as high as 14 inches throughout much of the central and southern sections with 10-12 inches in the northwest.
At the Seacoast, where ocean temperatures are still relatively mild, snow accumulations of six to 10 inches were reported by observers. The National Weather Service issued a coastal hazard advisory, warning of the possibility of minor coastal flooding and spillover, especially at times of high tide due to the on-shore winds. High tide Sunday morning at much of the Seacoast was between 9:30-10:00 a.m.
The National Weather Service predicted blowing snow through early afternoon, with partly to mostly cloudy conditions but temperatures in the teens through Monday with wind chill factors below zero.
