New Hampshire forecast: Heavy snow of 1-3 inches per hour expected at times Sunday, Monday for the interior part of the state and higher elevations.

Significant snowfall is expected Sunday into Monday in New Hampshire on the heels of extreme cold weather.

A winter storm warning is in effect for most of the Granite State. There is also a high wind advisory called for the N.H. coast, with winds 25-35 mph, and gusts up to 65 mph possible.

Coastal flooding is possible late Monday morning, according to the National Weather Service — a coastal flood warning is called for 9 a.m. to noon Monday.

The forecast notes heavy snowfall in parts of the state could be 1-3 inches per hour.

The storm system will continue into Monday, and snow will become a wintry mix and then rain — with rain falling along the Seacoast and southeastern N.H. mostly after 9 a.m. on Monday.
