Winter Storm Warnings have now been issued for the entire state with the exception of the immediate coast in Southern Maine for Wednesday afternoon into Thursday night.
We’ll start the day tomorrow with partly sunny skies before clouds increase again by late Wednesday morning ahead of the storm.
The timing on the Wednesday – Thursday storm looks like it’ll start during the early afternoon on Wednesday and continue right through the daylight hours on Thursday. I suspect we’ll be looking at numerous cancellations for Thursday. It looks like a mostly snow event at this point with some rain/freezing rain/sleet mixing in at the coast. Models are all agreeing that there will be plenty of moisture associated with this storm so I do expect snowfall totals to be high (over 6” easily, some spots closer to a foot). We could see some blowing and drifting as well. Things wrap up by Thursday evening. Travel will become difficult.
Friday looks nice with a ridge of high pressure brining us mostly sunny skies. Some more light snow/mix on Saturday with mild high temperatures.
Tonight: Lows from 18° to 30° with partly cloudy skies.
Wednesday: Highs 31° – 40° with partly to mostly cloudy skies and snow/mix/rain developing in the afternoon. Snow continues overnight.
Thursday: Highs 17° – 24° with snow ending in the late afternoon. Significant snowfall accumulations.
Friday: Highs 23° – 29° with mostly sunny skies.
Saturday: Highs 38° – 44° with some light snow/mix during the morning/afternoon.
