Today will feature a fast-moving snowstorm as low pressure rapidly traverses the state of Massachusetts. Radar imagery shows moderate/heavy snow banding well underway across the entire area this morning, perhaps with the exception of light snow along the Canadian border. Snow will continue to fall steadily through this afternoon, especially along Maine’s coastal plain. Farther south in NH, rain will mix with snow and lead to lower accumulations. Some mixing may also occur east of I-95 and south of Portland. Snow will taper off from west to east this afternoon. As the low rapidly intensifies offshore, heavier snow will linger along the coast into the early evening hours before departing around 6-7 PM.
The highest snow totals today will generally be found north and east of Portland where 4-8” will fall. This area will also include most of Cumberland County and northern York County, even those areas that are west of PWM. Amounts will slowly taper off W/NW of a Fryeburg/Waterville line, with only 1-3” expected along the Canadian border.
High temps today will range from 25 in the north to 35 in southeastern NH.
