Parts of N.H., North Country Wake to Blanket of Snow


April showers bring May ... snow?

Parts of western Maine and northern New Hampshire were getting snowfall Tuesday morning, but most folks were seeing more rain. Vermont's higher elevations also got snow.

Tom Hawley from the National Weather Service said there were reports of 2.2 inches of snow in Alstead, 2 inches of snow in Acworth and an inch of snow in Pittsburg, all in New Hampshire.

The entire Northeast is dealing with unseasonably cold weather on Tuesday, with most of the region likely to top out in the low 50s. The cold weather follows some record-setting rainfall in April in parts of New England.

The sun could finally come out late in the week, though, when temperatures are likely to graze 60 degrees.


The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory, starting at 8 p.m. Monday, for northern New Hampshire.

The forecast calls for a wintry mix in greater Concord, and the southern tier could have sleet and slippery roads early Tuesday morning..

Berlin was expected to get 2- to 5- inches over the two-day stretch, with it turning to rain by Tuesday night. There is also a flood warning near Berlin, for the Androscoggin River at Gorham.
