LONDONDERRY — A significant winter storm warning has been issued for Western Windham County, including the cities of Stratton and Londonderry, with forecasters predicting heavy snowfall and strong winds from 1 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday.
Residents can expect total snow accumulations of 4 to 10 inches, with the possibility of higher amounts at elevations above 1500 feet.
Wind gusts may reach up to 35 mph, further complicating conditions.

The National Weather Service advises those who must travel to carry an emergency kit that includes an extra flashlight, food, and water.
Residents are urged to monitor weather reports and adhere to any guidance provided by local officials.
