Snow, sleet make for slick N.H. roads


The Eagle-Tribune

---- — Snow, sleet and slippery conditions delayed the commute in Southern New Hampshire this morning.

A couple of inches snow, followed by sleet that began to fall about 8:30 a.m., slowed travel and sent vehicles off the road. But it didn't lead to any major accidents, police said.

The number of accidents began to increase about 10 a.m. as roads became slicker. Vehicles slid off roads in Londonderry and Derry, including Interstate 93 south. No injuries were reported.

The messy weather also delayed flights at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport and Logan International Airport in Boston.

There were delays to Philadelphia, Newark and Washington, D.C., according to Thomas Malafronte, assistant airport director at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory through midnight. The snow and sleet are expected to turn to all rain after 4 p.m. with temperatures rising to the mid-30s.

Temperatures will then drop to the 20s tonight, the Weather Service said. There is a 30 percent of snow forecast for tomorrow afternoon.
