CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire state government, including the courts and liquor stores, will be closed Tuesday as a snowstorm predicted to bring high winds and white-out conditions makes its way through the state.

Gov. Maggie Hassan has declared a state of emergency. Hassan is not imposing a travel ban, but she and state public safety officials are encouraging people to stay off the roads and private businesses to consider closing.

Hassan says the storm is likely to reach blizzard conditions along the Seacoast and in southeastern New Hampshire, with one to two inches of snow accumulating per hour overnight Tuesday.

Officials said the Department of Transportation will have around 700 people on the roads and the Emergency Management Center will open at midnight Tuesday. Hassan says widespread power outages are not expected.
