The rare mid-May nor'easter that brought one to two inches of rain to most of New England produced a change to snow overnight in the higher elevations of western and northern New Hampshire.
Elevations over 500 feet were cold enough for snowflakes to mix in overnight. In some cases, it snowed for a few hours. The snow was intense – falling at rates of over an inch per hour – quickly accumulating. The snow was wet and heavy, resulting in a few thousand power outages in the Lake Sunapee region.
The speed limit on I-89 was reduced to 45 mph between Warner and the Vermont state line.
