Another low pressure system moves into our area today. It’ll continue to strengthen as we go throughout the day and bring another round of heavy snowfall to the area. Locations farthest east will pick up the most snow and could see well over a foot. Far Down East Maine could even see close to 18-24 inches if the storm intensifies as some models project. It’ll become windy as well.
Unlike yesterday’s storm, this storm will remain an all snow event with temperatures well below freezing. We may see a 15:1 to a 20:1 ratio for snowfall to liquid water (QPF). The colder temperatures are the higher the ratio and the more snowfall. A couple of the models are projecting over an inch of QPF for the Bangor area with more liquid farther east and less farther west. It’ll be a light fluffy snow.
The timing will have the storm starting this evening, think 6-8pm, and wrapping up by late Sunday morning.
So, that being said, of course there will be hazardous travel conditions tonight and into Sunday. I expect church and event cancelations for much of the day tomorrow.
By Monday, a high pressure system moves into the area. It’ll be mostly sunny during the day. Another low moves in for Tuesday and will bring some snow to the area (yea, I’m serious). We’ll have partly sunny skies for Wednesday.
