MANCHESTER -- New Hampshire safety officials say an ice storm that was expected to hit the state this weekend may still be coming.
Although there was rain throughout the state and some light snow reported in the North Country, there had been no reports of icy road conditions Sunday afternoon.
Gregg Champlin, spokesman for the state Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, said staff at the state Emergency Operations Center in Concord would continue monitoring forecast updates and temperatures throughout the day. The Operations Center was activated Sunday to level two, which is one step above every-day operations.
“We’re trying to stay ahead of the curve and closely monitoring this,” Champlin said. “As the storm progresses through the night, people should use caution and be aware there could be slick conditions as the temperature drops.”
