Exclusive photos from Mt. Washington ski area

Greetings from Mt. Washington Valley, NH,

Snow continued to fall in Mt. Washington Valley on Tuesday.  Since Monday area resorts have received 3 – 14 inches.
 
Mount Washington Observatory Staff Meteorologist Ryan Knapp forecast for Mt. Washington Valley today: Low pressure in the Gulf of Maine will continue to exit to the northeast as an upper level low passes over the state today. Ample low level moisture lingering on the backside of the surface low will allow for plenty of clouds and light snow this morning before tapering to scattered snow showers and flurries for the afternoon with the best chances occurring on and around the mountains of the north from upsloping and along the coast where most of the upper level energy will sag.
