Storm update #11

More brand new forecasts… ¬†As of 7:10 the cold air is winning the battle and very little changeover is expected. As a result I will update my forecast amount of snow to 2-4″ along the coast south of Portland, 6-10″ along the mainland coast between Portland and Bar Harbor, 3-5 along the coast from Bar Harbor to Eastport. Snow amounts will range from only a dusting in Aroostook county to 8-12 in the foothills to 6-10 in the westernmost mountains to 5-8 in inland York county. Here are the updated ETAs of the snow: Providence RI about 8:00, Worechester MA about 8:00, Boston MA about 8:20, Manchester NH about 8:30, Kittery ME about 9:00, Portland ME about 9:30, and Yarmouth ME about 9:45.

Wind predictions have risin to sustained @35mph with gusts @45-50mph.

Stay tuned!

Storm update #10

The main precipitation shield is approaching Hartford CT and will continue to overspread the NE area this evening. With a slightly more westerly track there will be more changeover along the southern coast. As we have a greater changeover potential I will adjust my snowfall predictions for the coast to 4-8″ with 7-11″ inland. Wind forecasts remain the same. The precipitation will arrive in Boston MA at approximately 8:00, at Springfield MA at approximately 7:15, Manchester NH at approximately 8:20, at Kittery ME at approximately 9:00, Portland ME at approximately 9:30, and Yarmouth ME at approximately 9:45. All precipitation will end late Wednesday afternoon with clear skies for turkey day.

Stay tuned!

Storm update #9

The center of this Rapidly strengthening and rapidly moving storm is now located near Indianapolis with a pressure of 994 millibars. As I look at the radar I will have to adjust my estimated time of precipitation arrival for the three cites I have been featuring. These are Yarmouth ME, Boston MA, and Hartford CT. If your town/city is not on here feel free to post a comment with your town/city and I will try my best to make a forecast for you. For these 3 cities these are the times for rain/snow arrival: Yarmouth 8:30, Boston 6:00, and Hartford 3:30. I will expand this list as time goes on. Snow and wind predictions remain the same.

Stay tuned!

Snow forecasts have gone up slightly to 6-10″ at the coast and 9-15″ inland. Winds will be sustained at 25-30 mph with gusts over 35 mph.
