Sleet and rain that mixed with Saturday's snow kept accumulations down and created ice blocks at the ends of many driveways that were impossible to remove for those who waited.

The National Weather Service in Gray, Maine, showed most snow in the Seacoast region was in Shapleigh in York County with 14 inches, 11.5 inches in Strafford, 10.7 inches in Derry, and 10.2 inches in Northwood.

Shoveling Tips

Fire departments in Portsmouth and Dover asked residents to adopt a fire hydrant and clear snow and ice away. The Dover Fire Department said there are 1,200 hydrants in the city.

Newfield Fire- Rescue in York County advised clearing driveways to a width to allow a fire truck or ambulance pull in. Vents should be cleared of snow to prevent carbon monoxide issues from developing inside a house.

Winter Done with the Seacoast?

After several almost daily storms during the past two weeks, things will get quiet for the final days of winter.

Sunday will bring lots of sun with temperatures rising into the low 40s to soften up the snow. A low pressure area in the Canadian Maritimes will create gusty winds around 40 mph out of the northwest on Monday with a weak system moving through on Tuesday that could bring some snow or rain showers.

However, forecasters at the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine, are watching a possible coastal storm for next weekend, but it's too far out to make any forecast about its potential impact.
