Our blizzard is here and ongoing across Maine this morning. Precip has moved out of western NH but is still going strong over ME as bands rotate in around our ocean storm. Winds are only beginning to wind up as our storm intensifies so expect continuing deterioration of visibility even as snow begins to lighten up. From the looks of it, an additional 4-8″ can be expected from Portland to Augusta and points NE. 2-4″ more is likely from Kittery-Fryeburg and NE while NH is likely only to see another coating-2″ on top of what’s already fallen. Winds will gust in the 40-50mph+ range along the coast and in the 20-40mph range inland which will blow around all the light/fluffy snow resulting in very low visibility. Winds could also be enough to bring down some trees which could result in power outages.
Snow will wind down from W to E during the day with snow already nearly done in the CT river valley and snow continuing into the early evening along the midcoast. The HRRR Model shown above gives a good visualization of this trend. Temps will linger in the 20’s for most today as daytime heating is balanced out by colder air being drawn into the storm from the north.
More snow is possible Wednesday into Thursday with some folks likely seeing another foot and possibly more. More details forthcoming!
