LACONIA — The late-weekend storm that snarled traffic across New England only dropped 9 inches of snow in Laconia, for 20 inches of snow depth, according to local weather data.
And when another storm rolls in today and tonight, the snowfall will be lighter here than elsewhere in New England, according to Chris Kimble, meteorologist for the National Weather Service.
"For the Laconia area, we're not expecting as much, maybe 4 to 7 inches," he said. "We're expecting higher amounts further east. In Maine, it will be worse."
In Gray, where the the National Weather Service is based, more than 14 inches of snow fell during the Sunday and Monday storm for a snow depth of 26 inches, according to agency reports.
The National Weather Service forecast states, "Another strong upper trough of low pressure will move east to southeast from the upper Great Lakes Wednesday allowing a coastal low to rapidly intensify off the Maine coast by Wednesday night bringing potentially heavy snows across a good portion of Maine and New Hampshire. The system slowly exits into the Canadian maritimes Thursday but with lingering snow in the morning tapering to scattered snow showers."
