Spring arrives, as does more snow
The storm overnight dropped as much as 14 inches in parts of Carroll County, which was a welcome sign in the North Country that ski season will not be ending any time soon.
“Normally we’d be seeing crocuses growing outside at this point,” said Tom Hawley, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine. “It’s a later spring than it has been recently.”
Snowfall in southern New Hampshire was much less and temperatures in southern areas reached the 40s Thursday, which was warm enough to melt whatever the plows didn’t catch on the street, but had little effect on the snowbanks that have been building over the past few months.
“Early to mid-next week is back to the deep freeze after a couple of days of milder weather,” Hawley said.
Meanwhile, the lingering snow pack is becoming a concern as April approaches. Temperatures will eventually return to normal, which could lead to flooding if it gets too warm too quickly.
