MANCHESTER — New Hampshire is expected to get several inches of fresh snow this week, followed by a cold stretch with temperatures dipping below zero in some areas.
Derek Schroeter, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine, said Sunday that southern and central New Hampshire were in line to receive the most snow from a system expected to run from early Tuesday until after the evening commute.
“It’s going to be an all-day event,” Schroeter said.
Schroeter said central and mountain areas could see as much as 5 inches while southern parts of the Granite State could get 4 inches. Northern New Hampshire was also expected to get up to 2 inches before the system passes, Schroeter said.
Scattered snow showers are possible for Wednesday, then temperatures will drop considerably on Thursday, Schroeter said. High temperatures on Thursday could struggle to reach 20 degrees and overnight lows will drop into the single digits in southern New Hampshire and could dip as low as 10-below zero in northern areas, Schroeter said.
Conditions will warm up slightly Friday, with highs in the 20s, then return to the lower 30s on Saturday, Schroeter said.
“It looks like it’s going to be a dry, cold weekend,” Schroeter said.
