It’s the last official day of the season – and winter making it count.

Snow has been falling since early morning. Some places in the Granite State are expecting up to 14 inches, and some have already gotten more than 8 inches (That link is expected update as the day continues).

WMUR is also going to update a list of parking bans in New Hampshire, so if you’re worried about your vehicle be sure to check back.

For those hoping tomorrow would bring the sun back, think again. We’re supposed to expect snow off and on into Thursday.

At least baseball season is on the horizon.
