It took a little while, but New Hampshire is in store for the first big winter storm of the season. Along with significant snowfall, extremely cold weather is part of the equation. Some forecasters have called for nighttime temperatures in the teens. WMUR weather says it might even get a little colder at night.

So according to the Rochester Voice, the Strafford County Extreme Cold Weather Shelter will be activated starting at 2 p.m. on Saturday, and remain open until Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock. The shelter is located at the Alms House, 276 County Farm Road in Dover.

The article in the Rochester Voice claims transportation is available by shuttle from the Amtrak platform in Dover next to the train and bus station. Pick-up times are on or around every hour from 2 - 8 p.m. on Saturday. And weather permitting, the same schedule will be used on Sunday.

For other transportation options, or if you have questions about transportation, call the shelter at 857-323-0388.
