Snow coming in again, and again

After a brief break in the snowy pattern, another storm is taking aim at New Hampshire and is expected to bring 6 to 12 inches of snow to central and southern areas beginning early Wednesday morning.
Winter storm watches were issued for all but Coos County, where less snowfall is expected.
Snow is expected to begin by around 4 a.m. Wednesday in southern areas and will likely continue into Wednesday evening, Legro said.
Legro said the Monadnock region will likely see the highest snowfall totals, with up to a foot expected, while 8 to 10 inches will fall on the Seacoast. The amounts will taper off farther north.
"It's certainly an active pattern we're settling into here," Legro said.
An active pattern isn't what local highway officials want to hear as they keep a watchful eye on their budgets.
The new budget went into effect Jan. 1 and includes $75,000 for snow plowing, $60,000 for salt and 10,000 for sand, St. Hilaire said.
"We'll see what happens. I can always move money around in the summer to make up the difference," he said.
"Usually I wait to get it in the fall," he said.
Storms in January required more sand than Worthen had anticipated.
