Storm update #16

At 9:00 am EST the snow is still holding strong here in Yarmouth and with falling temperatures I expect it to stay that way. Already there is 5″on the ground here and with more to come I am a little suspicious that the totals might top 10″ here in Yarmouth and anywhere west of here. In the foothills I expect 12-14″.

Stay tuned!

Storm update #15

I have journeyed outside for the first time this morning and the snow is accumulating fast. I now expect something like 5-9″ here along the mainland coast with pure rain along the coast south of Portland. I will continue to monitor the forecast as the complex patterns above our heads keep arguing over weather it should be a rain storm or a snow storm.

Stay tuned!

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!
