Hopefully your Black Friday shopping included milk, bread, and eggs.
History may be repeating itself. Remember last winter, um..fall? A late November snowstorm swept through the Granite State before many of us had finished fall yard cleanup. After dodging a Thanksgiving storm, New Hampshire is a prime target for the latest round of white weather.
According to Portsmouth Patch, a large snowstorm is destined for New Hampshire starting Sunday afternoon, lasting through Tuesday morning on the Seacoast.
How much snow? While the track remains to take full shape, Weather.com is predicting a wide range, from 5", all the way up to 14". This may seem like a big swing, but note the bottom end is still nearly a HALF FOOT. The storm will be moving in from Southern New England.
Also, it's expected to be a long, drawn-out storm. Portsmouth Patch reported the southern and southern central parts of the state (Nashua, Merrimack, and Salem), snow is expected to start around 2 p.m. Sunday, dropping 1 to 3 inches in the afternoon, and another 5 to 8 inches during the evening. For these communities, the snow is expected to last through Monday night, with another 1 to 3 inches, with a total accumulation in the range of 7 to 14 inches.
The Seacoast can expect a similar timeline, with a small drop-off in accumulation to between 8 and 13 inches.
There is already a Winter Storm Watch from the National Weather Service from 1p Sunday, through Tuesday at 7AM
