The Monadnock Region saw around 2.5 inches of snowfall overnight Thursday, resulting in a number of school cancellations in the area; and the region can expect about 1.5 inches more before the day’s end.
Nikki Becker, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine, said the Monadnock Region is on track to accumulate up to 4 inches of snowfall Friday. Becker said Friday that the precipitation began around 8 p.m. Thursday evening with some sleet, but quickly transitioned into snowfall through Friday morning.
The spout of snowfall spurred the school districts for Fall Mountain, Jaffrey-Rindge, ConVal, Monadnock, Hinsdale, Winchester and Marlborough to close school Friday.
Schools in Keene, Stoddard, Chesterfield, Harrisville, Marlow, Nelson and Westmoreland were having a remote learning day.
The snow should taper today between 2 and 4 p.m. Becker added that temperatures in the region are around freezing and are expected to cool throughout the day.
