A rapidly intensifying storm moving though the Ohio River Valley today, through Southern New England later tonight, and into the Gulf of Maine tomorrow morning will bring us a variety of precipitation forms along with strong gusty winds. As we go into the rest of this evening we’ll see periods of moderate to heavy snow, sleet, freezing rain, and rain. Rain and freezing rain along the coast will finally change to snow late tonight but accumulations will be on the lower side because the majority of the precipitation will fall before the changeover occurs. Temps fall into the teens tonight and we could even see some single digits in far northern locations. It will become windy as well with blowing and drifting of snow likely. Needless to say, travel will continue to be dangerous tonight and into the early morning hours tomorrow.
Snow tapers off as we get into tomorrow afternoon. It’ll stay windy through the morning. Highs tomorrow will be in the teens and low 20s. Total snowfall accumulations will be around 2”-5” along the immediate coast, 5”-9” just inland, 7”-15” in the greater Bangor area and into Calais, and 12”-20+” from Lincoln to Dover-Foxcroft north and west.
Friday we’ll have partly sunny skies. It’ll be blustery and cold. We have a fairly mild Saturday ahead with temperatures above normal. Back to colder temperatures on Sunday & Monday.
