Here we go again... Fast-moving storm headed to Granite State

New Hampshire Union Leader

A fast-moving storm making its way eastward from the northern Plains states is expected to bring more snow to New Hampshire beginning during the day tomorrow.

"A low pressure system sitting over the northern plains will move east and arrive in New England during the day on Tuesday," said Eric Schwibs, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, Gray, Maine forecast office, which serves New Hampshire.

The storm's track is expected to bring it over southern New England where it will weaken, but then redevelop off the Gulf of Maine. The edge of the storm will mean snow in southern New Hampshire.

"The low will redevelop off New England," Schwibs said. "It is not powerful but will produce plowable snow during Tuesday and Tuesday night and should be out of here before dawn Wednesday."

The storm will be fast-moving, Schwibs said, holding snow accumulations down to an expected three to five inches in New Hampshire.

While the region has seen several snowstorms in recent weeks, the number of storms and the snow left behind is not unusual.

"This is your typical February in New England," Schwibs said.

Not quite so typical will be the temperatures in the latter half of the week.

"We're going to have warmer air and a slight pattern change," Schwibs said. "Warmer air from the Pacific will mean milder temperatures, in the 40s toward Wednesday, Thursday and Friday."

Temperatures for this week of the year are typically in the upper 30s.
