The threat of snow in the higher elevations is the last thing Doris Bedell wants to hear this time of year.
Forecasters say New Hampshire will remain stuck in the same wet weather pattern that's made for a dismal past week.
Things should brighten up by Monday, but before then, Kistner said a low pressure system similar to a late spring nor'easter is expected to develop just south of Cape Cod and move into the Gulf of Maine this weekend.
Coincidentally, Kistner said the latest snowfall on record for New Hampshire is May 26, 1967.
Highs today will only reach into the mid-40s in southern areas to upper 30s to the north.
Sunday's highs will range from the mid-50s south to upper 40s north, Kistner said.
In terms of rain, Kistner said parts of the state could see 1 to 1.5 inches before the wet weather moves out later on Sunday.
The weather should improve in time for Memorial Day parades and observances on Monday.
