BEST TIME TO VISIT NEW HAMPSHIRE LAKES REGIONS AND MERRIMACK

New Hampshire Merrimack and Lakes Region weather is very similar to other New England southern places: very changeable, with moderate precipitation all year long with very cold days in the winter and early spring. 

High humidity and high temperatures are very rare in New Hampshire, even in July and August, and it snows intensively in the period of December-March.

Late spring and early fall are excellent months for visits. However, fall's foliage spectacle causes many thousands of weekenders to visit New Hampshire, so you should avoid Autumn's weekends.

Summer is also an excellent period for traveling in the Lakes region, where the shorelines tend to be fresh places even in the hottest days.


White Mountains region

In the higher sites of the White Mountains, weather is extremely severe and snow is very intense in winter, early spring and late autumn. Besides, winds may be particularly strong. 

You should check previously the weather conditions, before attempting to go to high places such as Mount Washington. 


WHEN NOT TO GO TO NEW HAMPSHIRE

Winter months are very cold. In the case of the White Mountains regions, if you aren't a skier, a hiker or an adept of hard outdoors sports, you should avoid winter or even November and early spring.
