NH snowfall amounts; Alton tops the list with 15 inches

February 19. 2014 7:45AM

Many New Hampshire residents can attest that weather forecasters, who predicted 3 to 6 or 4 to 8 inches of snow would blanket the state in the latest storm that hit Tuesday, missed the boat by a wide margin - and in at least one case, by a foot.

In the snowfall count, Alton top the list with 15 inches of snow covering the Lakes Region town, according to the National Weather Service. Close behind with 14 inches were Canterbury, Hooksett, Bow, Rochester and Madbury.

Snow measuring 13 inches was recorded in Concord (as well as 12. 2 and 12 inches depending exactly where in the Capital City it was measured) and 13 inches also covered Northwood.

Northfield, with 12.6 inches, was close behind followed by Laconia with 12.5 inches and northeast Alton with 12.3.

A foot of snow blanketed many communities including Barnstead, Deerfield, New Durham, Strafford, New Boston and Goffstown.

The town with the least? That would be Marlborough where 2.5 inches was recorded.
