Maine & New Hampshire Will See Another Winter Storm This Weekend
Even though we are a few days into spring, winter is not ready to give up just yet. Hopefully, you haven't bothered to put that snow blower, shovels, buckets of salt melt, winter boots, etc away yet. Why? Well....
It looks as though we are going to get hit with another winter storm this coming weekend!
We're not going to get a blizzard or a Nor'Easter, but it is going to be a plowable amount of snow. Basically, it is going to be enough to be a big pain in the butt!
According to WMTW, the storm will be brought on by two low pressure areas. One of these is coming across the great lakes, the other will start in the Cape Cod, Massachusetts area. Both of these will work their way eastward.
The first appears to be coming straight across the center of the state. The second one, which is starting near Cape Cod, will work its way into the Gulf of Maine. This will draw colder air into the Northern New England states and will cause a variety of winter weather over the course of Saturday and Sunday.
The meteorologists from WMTW are saying that we can expect the winter precipitation to roll into the state on Saturday afternoon. The coast will see mostly rain or a mixed precipitation. As of Wednesday morning (March 22nd), WMTW is calling for Central and Northern Maine to get somewhere between 4 and 8 inches of snow. The storm should roll out of our area by early Sunday.
And, according to the National Weather Service, we can expect warmer temperatures on Sunday and Monday. So, with any lucky, anything we get will be melted by mid-week.
So, those three important things to keep in mind: 1 - It will roll into most of the state on Saturday afternoon or Saturday evening. 2 - It will be mostly slush on the coast and mostly snow in-land. 3 - It should be completely out of our area by late Sunday morning.
