MANCHESTER, NH – It ain’t over ’til it’s over, and that goes for winter in New Hampshire.

The National Weather Service says another strong low-pressure system is forecast to develop south of New England and move into the Gulf of Maine on the evening of Wednesday March 7 into Thursday. While subtle changes to the storm track and snow amounts are expected, there is growing confidence that a large part of New Hampshire and western Maine will see 12-18 inches of snowfall.

A Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from Wednesday afternoon through Thursday evening.
