MANCHESTER, NH –  More wintry weather is on the horizon, according to the Weather Underground, with up to five inches falling here in Manchester by Tuesday morning.

That said, a little pre-Primary snow shouldn’t be enough to keep anyone away from what Secretary of State Bill Gardner expects to be a turn-out of historic proportions. On February 5 Gardner announced his turnout prediction for the 2016 Presidential Primary Election as follows:

Republican Ballots Cast: 282,000; Democratic Ballots Cast: 268,000. The number of registered voters as of Feb. 5: 231,376 Democrats; 262,111 Republicans; 389,472 Undeclared; Total 882,959.

Back to the weather: The following Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect from 6 a.m. Feb. 8 through 6 a.m. Feb. 9 for Eastern Hillsborough County:

*Snow accumulation of 3 to 6 inches.

* Timing: Snow begins Monday morning and continues into Monday night. Light snow may continue into Tuesday but the bulk of the accumulation will be over by Tuesday morning.

* Impacts: Roads will become snow covered and slippery. Strong  winds will cause blowing and drifting snow and could lead to  low visibility in spots.

* Winds:  North 5 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph.

* Temperatures: in the lower 20s.

Precautionary/preparedness actions: A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means that periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow-covered roads and limited visibility,  and use caution while driving.
