New Hampshire residents are shoveling about 3 to 6 inches of new snow in some spots just a few days after the first big storm of the season hit.
Much of the snow fell during Tuesday afternoon and evening, with multiple spin-outs on the Everett Turnpike and Interstate 93. Highways were still slick Wednesday morning and speeds were lowered to 45 mph.
A water main break in Concord affected 26 homes Tuesday night, but it wasn't immediately known if it was weather-related. Service was restored Wednesday morning.
The season’s first major storm this weekend dumped snow across the state, with accumulations ranging from six inches to more than a foot. But despite a tough weekend, it should be a relatively easy trip for Monday morning commuters.
It’s a national trend: torrential rain that wipes away roads, homes, and lives. New Hampshire has also seen an increase in these storms, including this summer, resulting in a disaster declaration by the President. Officials, meanwhile, have been working to not only fix the damage from these storms but rebuild in ways that can better withstand the next one.
The 90 degree temperatures this week might not exactly suggest the coming arrival of fall, but here’s something that does: the new edition of Old Farmers Almanac is here. Senior Associate Editor Sarah Perreault gives All Things Considered host Brady Carlson a preview of the new edition.
The strong storms that moved through New Hampshire sent lightning strikes that sparked some fires and possibly injured some people.
The Telegraphof Nashuareports Londonderry crews were called to Comcast on Thursday after the building was struck by lightning. An employee complained of feeling light-headed and tingling sensations consistent with electrical shock. He was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
As we learned from Joe Hanson, space weather can be an amazing thing. As receiving real-time space weather forecasts is becoming more of a reality, it would be good to familiarize yourself with some of the weather events you can expect to see. We’ve compiled a list to test your space weather knowledge. All of these events sound fantastic and have been the fodder for many a Sci-Fi plot, but do you know which one of these 4 space weather events isn’t real?
It’s summer storm season, and before heading out of the house it’s not a bad idea to take a quick glance at your local Doppler Radar to avoid getting caught in a downpour. The breadth and scope of weather forecasting has advanced rapidly in the past few decades – now, the United Kingdom’s National Weather Service is partnering with NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to begin providing forecasts of space weather in near real-time. We wanted to get a better idea of what a space forecast might sound like, so we called Joe Hanson - host and writer of the PBS digital studio’s It’s Okay To Be Smart.
Elusive, secretive birds often are the most satisfying to discover, and for me the black-billed cuckoo ranks near the top. Hearing a bird is usually the best way to find it, but attentive ears are needed to detect this cuckoo's song: a subtle, slow and hollow-sounding "cucucu – cucucucu." The song in no way resembles the bold double notes of a cuckoo clock that mimic the song of the common cuckoo, a species that nests across Europe and Asia.
The state should see some relief today thanks to a cold front set to move in last night from Ontario and Quebec. National Weather Service meteorologist Michael Cempa says the most recent heat wave was caused by something called a ‘Bermuda High.’ That’s when a high pressure system parks along the western Atlantic.
It’s been an unusual weather week in New Hampshire. It started with heavy rains that brought flash flooding to some parts of the state. Those floods washed out roads and led to evacuations and power outages.
And then, a heat wave, with temperatures reaching well into the 90’s for many parts of the state.
Meteorologist Rob St. Pierre explains the recent weather to All Things Considered host Brady Carlson, and looks ahead at the weather to come.
