The snow has started, and we’re going to get hit hard!

Here is the latest forecast from the National Weather Service.

There is a major winter storm heading toward the region with blizzard conditions likely on the coastal plain tonight into Saturday. Low pressure will develop off the mid-Atlantic coast today. This low will then move northeastward...passing just southeast of Nantucket tonight and then move east from there on Saturday.

Significant snowfall is likely with this system, especially across southern New Hampshire eastward to the Maine coastal plain.The eventual track and small scale features within the storm will determine exact snowfall amounts.

However, a large portion of the region will see a foot or more of snow, with localized amounts approaching two feet or more. In addition, the rapidly strengthening storm system will produce strong winds along the coast with whiteout conditions at times along with the potential for damaging winds and power outages.
