Road Crews are Out, and Snow Continues in Nashua
Give plow drivers some space and take it easy if you are shoveling.
According to the National Weather Service:
A Winter Storm Warning remain in effect for Southwest New Hampshire, western and central Massachusetts, basically north of the Mass Pike and west of Interstate 495. Storm total snow accumulations across this area will range from 6 to 12 inches. There is a low probability a few locations in this area could receive up to 16 inches. This will result in a slow and dangerous morning commute.
No serious accidents our outages reported in Nashua this morning, but there have been some minor problems, including a fender bender and car fire on the Everett Turnpike.
Nashua Emergency Management Director Justin Kates estimates about eight inches as of 9 a.m. Plows are out and about.
"Motorists need to give plow trucks space and people need to take breaks and stay hydrated if they are out plowing or shoveling sidewalks and driveways," Kates said.
You can see by the weather map posted here that Nashua sits on the cusp of the snow belt, and may get some freezing rain if precipitation changes over from snow.
