MANCHESTER, NH — Snow will soon be on the ground here, according to the National Weather Service. Just how much over the next two days is still up in the air.
But the threat of snow was enough for the Manchester School District to call for a snow day on Dec. 2, as posted on the district’s Facebook page Sunday evening.
As of 3 p.m. Sunday snow was already falling in western New Hampshire and heading our way. The storm will come in two waves, the heaviest snow will be falling three hours on either side of midnight and overnight Sunday into Monday, according to meteorologist Maura Casey.
“There will be a strong cut-off to the north in terms of how much snow, but Manchester will be south of that line, so you’ll be looking at possibly eight to ten inches,” Casey said, with the Concord area seeing less snowfall, possibly 4 inches, and more accumulation southwest, of a foot or more.
Snow will continue Monday but will taper off and hit a lull, maybe turning to sleet before intensifying again Monday night.
“This portion of the forecast we’re less certain about as to how much accumulation is possible, but we could see potential for more accumulation, possibly heavy, Monday night into Tuesday,” Casey said.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning in reference to Sunday night’s snowfall. We’ll update you on the storm as we get more information.
