Screen Shot 2015-03-17 at 6.15.59 PMMANCHESTER, NH – The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory that includes the possibility of snow squalls Tuesday afternoon.

Eversource was reporting about 14,5oo outages in New Hampshire including about 200 in Manchester as of 6 p.m.

The advisory called for a strong cold front to work its way across the state accompanied by gustywinds and scattered snow squalls. A few of the squalls may start as rain before changing over to snow. The bulk of the activity will be over the mountains and foothills but some may make their way to the lower elevations closer to the coast. Any heavy squalls will be accompanied by briefly low visibilities in heavy snow which may also cause slippery conditions as temperatures drop behind the front. The activity should be offshore by 7 p.m.
