MANCHESTER, NH – If you’ve been missing good old-fashioned New Hampshire winter snow, this week may be a crowd-pleaser.
According to meteorologist Chris Legro at the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine, we will see 2-4 inches of snow beginning late Wednesday evening, between 8 and 10 p.m., which will continue into the morning but likely ending before the morning commute.
“We expect the accumulating snow to be done by rush hour, although there may be a few flakes left flowing in the air, but it will be the lighter, fluffy snow,” Legro said.
And that will be that, until the weekend, when there is a threat of something even more familiar for those used to March roaring in like a lion.
“Over the weekend we have a potential for a coaster system,” Legro said, more affectionately known as a nor’easter. “The question is how it will track. It does look like there is a threat for plowable snowfall. If it goes through the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Valley we’d see more of a wintry mix, but right now it’s looking like it may come right up the coast and be an all-snow event.”
That storm front could begin Saturday evening and continue through to Sunday.
