Snow's Coming! Grab Your Skis, Shovels, Mukluks
Yes, it's winter in Nashua. Calling for 3-6 inches of the white stuff overnight.
A winter weather advisory for snow and frigid temperatures were issued Monday by the National Weather Service for Nashua and surrounding areas, which will remain in effect until 7 a.m. Jan. 22.
Accumulations of 3 to 5 inches are expected, starting Monday night. Expect dry fluffy snow, which may cause slick roadways and poor visibility due to blowing and drifting snow. Winds south 10 - 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph.
Snow should taper off into Tuesday. Temperatures will hover around 20 degrees. Motorists are remided to be especially careful on bridges and overpasses where slippery spots can easily develop in below-freezing temperatures.
Notice the single-digit temperatures in the forecast (make sure your oil tank is topped off, your pellet pile is refreshed, your fire logs at the ready.)
More snow is expected Friday, although it's too soon to know just how much.
