Cool start to the week warmer temps by thursday

A cold front swept through last night leaving up to 5″ in the heavy snow bands. This will allow for high pressure and colder temperatures to dominate Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday the high will shift offshore bringing a warm flow with rebounding temps. 50s Wednesday and 60 thursday.

Stay tuned!

Mid-Storm update

Heavy snows spreading across the area now in bands bringing good accumulations piling up very efficiently. On that note I will need to update the snow totals for SW ME to 10-16″ due to a more northerly trend in the latest model run. Also need to say that winds have been picking up and will be peaking shortly. Winds will average 20 mph gusts around 30 out of the NE. Peak winds will be found at the coast.

Stay tuned!

Snow storm Thursday

A powerful winter storm is preparing to slam the region with heavy snow as well as some wind though the snow will really grab headlines. 8-12″ are expected in Cumberland and York Counties in ME and most of SW NH as well. 3-6″ in northern NH and in ME North to Augusta. 1-3″ in northern ME.

A powerful low will extend a warm front ahead of its move SE under a powerful high. This will bring a good steady snow and efficient accumulation. see other post for more in-depth analysis.

Stay tuned!

Thursday snow

Wednesday – Wednesday night – Thursday – Thursday night will show us some winter here where last Fridays storm left us out. The farther south in ME you go the more snow you will get. 1′ is expected south of Auburn with 6″ towards Augusta and 1-3″ anywhere north of that.

A warm front will move north starting precip Wednesday. This front will stall and still produce precip while a upper trough (still binging precip) that will stall as well (still bringing precip) will trigger a secondary low that will partially stall (still bringing precip though this precip will be heavy) and rapidly develop bringing heavy precip. Next, adding to the cauldron of meteorological developments piling up almost as fast as the snow; another upper trough ( still bringing heavy snow) will nudge the existing upper trough, the warm front, and the coastal low into motion. A third upper level trough and a cold front will continue the snow into early Friday morning.

Stay tuned!

Thursday snow storm

Thursday will likely be our last chance at a very significant snowfall. A low will be moving out of the Great Lakes and will be nudged south by a fairly strong high in southern Quebec. This is a very cold high spilling cold air over the region so precipitation type will not be an issue with the exception of maybe Kittery where the warm air will be located. Confidence is still low so stay tuned for more updates.
