A Brief Clipper Brings a Round of Fresh Powder!

A brief Clipper is swinging through the Northeast, yielding scattered snow showers across the state. While the first round of precipitation moved in early this morning, additional snow will continue this afternoon and evening before tapering off early on Tuesday morning. Because this is a fast-moving system, significant snowfall amounts are not likely. Totals in the northern half of the state will be around 1-3 inches with higher localized amounts possible above 4,000’. The southern half of the state will see trace amounts after all is said and done.
 
Looking ahead however, skies will clear mid-week before another area of low pressure moves in during the Thursday-Friday timeframe.

Precipitation types will be dependent upon temperatures, which at this point may be warm enough for rain, especially for southern NH. Until then, enjoy the newly fallen snow and the subsequent clear skies that follow! We’ll be sure to keep you updated.
