Storm expected to take biggest toll in northern part of state
Forecasts were calling for as much as 1 to 2 feet of snow in the northern part of the state, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Mike Cempa. The Seacoast? High winds overnight, with 2 to 4 inches.
Wednesday afternoon, New Hampshire Electric Co-op crews rushed to repair weather-damaged lines causing outages in Alton, Canaan, Conway, Gilford, Hanover, Sandwich and Thornton, according to co-op spokesman Seth Wheeler.
Cempa said towns from Concord to the lower White Mountains were expected to see a change from snow to rain and ice. The area was forecast to have at least a foot of snow, according to Cempa.
“We are prepared statewide, but the potential for outages is particularly high from Concord north to (Franconia) Notch,” Murray said.
