Tornado Watch Issued For Lakes Region, North Country; T-Storms In NH


CONCORD, NH — The National Weather Service has issued several alerts for New Hampshire on Wednesday — including a tornado watch in four counties, as the southern edge of Beryl, a former hurricane, moves into the region.

A band of showers and thunderstorms, some that “could be severe,” are expected around 10 p.m. on Wednesday and 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. on Thursday, forecasters said. Wind will be in the 5 to 10 mph range with gusts as high as 20 mph.

The NWS issued a tornado watch for Belknap, Carroll, Coos, and Grafton counties around 6 p.m. The watch will remain in effect until midnight.

A flood watch is also in effect in the North Country and Lakes Region due to “tropical-like downpours” and “repeating storms (that) could overwhelm drainage, leading to flash flooding.” In the steeper terrain, “the risk is highest.”

As much as 1 to 3 inches of rain could fall in impacted areas.

“Greater rainfall totals are possible where storms persist over the same location,” an alert stated.
