Snow Storm Heading Towards Maine
Just after CMP and work crews from out of state have restored the vast majority of power to the over 123,000 customers that had lost it to the ice storm last weekend, more heavy, wet snow is heading towards Maine.Saturday didn’t feature as much sun or as mild temperatures that had been forecast, which in result, did not melt much of the ice off of trees, driveways and walkways.
The National Weather Service has posted a ‘WINTER STORM WARNING‘ for most of Maine, starting at 4 p.m. Sunday through 6 a.m. Monday. Most areas will see 6-10 inches of heavy, wet snow. That will add to the weight on the already stressed trees and could cause more issues with Mainers losing power.
After the storm pulls away on Monday, winds will also increase and temperatures by Monday night through most of next week will be extremely cold.
