After a series of showers kicked off the holiday weekend, Memorial Day itself should be beautiful across the Granite State--despite a slight chance of afternoon thunderstorms.  The National Weather Service predicts high temperatures ranging from the 70s in the North Country up to the 80s south of the Notches.

National Weather Service meteorologist Margaret Curtis says so far, this Spring has been fairly typical for the area.  But if it seems like it’s been rainier than usual, you’re not imagining it.  Concord has seen nearly 3.25 inches of rainfall.

Temps Dropping, Some Freezing Rain Reported

At just after 8 am the National Weather Service was reporting freezing rain is finally starting to fall in some parts of the state.

While most of the state has been relatively warm temperatures are now beginning to drop says John Cannon, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine.

“Well, right now we have cold air funneling into eastern NH and that is causing temperatures to fall to at or below freezing and we are beginning to pick up some accumulating icing conditions over eastern New Hampshire," says Cannon.

Snowstorm: Significant Improvements By Noon

The season’s first serious snowstorm is almost over, says says Margaret Curtis, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine.

“By around 10 am to noon depending on your location you should see significant improvements,” she said.

First reports indicate the worst snow was south of the notches.

“So far we’ve seen some reports of up to ten inches in the Lakes Region and as much as nine to ten inches in southwest New Hampshire,” Curtis said.
