Heavy rain, wet snow and gusty winds for some Granite Staters early Tuesday



Hey everyone, I’m Meteorologist Haley Lapointe, here’s an update to your impact weather forecast mostly this morning due to quick showers of heavy rain, some snow on higher ground and strong gusts of wind accompanying this system, there is even a minor coastal impact for high tide later in the day with the stronger winds and just sort of a push of moisture. There might be some minor splashing and minor flooding around high tide in the early afternoon, but it’s heavy rain in the southern part of the state, then snow. In the higher terrain you can actually see it through the higher elevations of, say, Cheshire, Sullivan and Grafton counties in the White Mountains might be a few inches above 1000 feet, but it’s just this intense spurt of rain that’s happening in the southern half of the state and it will continue northward for the next few hours. Wind is also a factor with this system. There is a wind advisory that has been issued for the northern half of Grafton and in Chaos County for gusts between 40 and 50 MPH. So that means there could be a few scattered power outages this morning with gusts like that, even in the southern half of the state I think we’ll see gusts between about 30 and 40 MPH. And it’s 10 o’clock this morning. Portsmouth with gusts to around 47. So it’s possible we’ll get some of those intense but brief gusts later in the afternoon at around 20-30 MPH. So on the coast we might have minor flooding and splashing at the time of high tide, which is at 205 hours. Wind gusts from the east at 40 MPH. Kind of conduct in this tie. So just know that if you are on the coast today, temperatures forty and near 50 degrees in Laconia have conquered around 50-52 degrees in Manchester, especially where the sun is seen. So the real heavy rain is actually over for much of southern New Hampshire at 9:10 a.m., 11 a.m. this morning. And even in the northern part of the state, it ends later this afternoon as well. So it’s really this rapidly changing system this morning that has the biggest impact. So at seven a.m. it’s snowing heavily in the White Mountains North country and it’s raining heavily in central and southern New Hampshire with built-in pockets of near-tropical downpours at nine a.m. it’s still raining in most places and in the north it has even changed on the ground as the temperatures have warmed up and at midday we see the sun breaking through in Manchester in the southern half of the state there are still some showers to the north, then that’s how it will be for the windy afternoon, some sunshine in the center and south to the north the remaining clouds, then cooler air returns by Wednesday from light snow showers in the northern part of the state and in the White Mountains, the rest of us seeing some sunshine as far as the amount of snowfall goes, it won’t be much and that’s only at through higher ground. So White Mountains Coast County at a high probably about 3 to 6 inches, then other places near the Sunapee area might be about 1 to 3. Wednesday and it’s pretty calm. Maybe a Thursday Friday afternoon shower looks nice. Some sunshine near 60 this weekend. Lots of clouds with temperatures in the 50s.

In the higher elevations of the Monadnock and Sunapee areas, there could be 1 to 4 inches of snow before it changes to rain. 3 to 7 inches of snow is likely in the White Mountains and Great North Woods, with the most at higher elevations. High temperatures mostly in the 40s, but some places emerging from clouds on Tuesday afternoon could reach 50. Gusty winds from the east are to be expected.
