Maine Snowfall Totals Map Released Ahead of Friday/Saturday Nor’easter
As Maine prepares for its first winter-weather nor'easter of the year, many people have been asking the question, 'how much snow are we going to get?'. Well, until this morning, that question was fairly hard to answer, at least according to Maine meteorologists, because of the storm's potential to shift its track.
Well, now that we're a little bit closer to the weekend, WGME has been able to really hone in on just how much snow the different regions of Maine should expect to get. Is hone a word? Hold on, I'mma Google it. I'm back, yes it's a word.
According to WGME Meteorologist, Christian Bridges, several regions can expect to get a foot or more of 'white gold' between Friday and Saturday. But, before we get into the snow totals, because it IS in fact a nor'easter, let's peep those wind gusts shall we?
The wind, which will come out of the northeast (obviously) will be accompanied by a wide band of precipitation that moves in with it. The most likely spot for a changeover to rain is going to be at the immediate coastline. Places like Rockland, Camden and Belfast could see an early change to just rain.
As the storm intensifies throughout the day Friday and into Saturday, many regions of Maine will be left with double-digit snowfall totals. With the coast likely to change over to rain, that is the region likely to pick up the least amount of snow.
Moving inland, Central Maine is expected to see anywhere from 3-6 inches. Further west, Mainers can expect a 6-10 range. And, once you move even further west into the mountains (skiing!) the region is likely to see anywhere from 8-14 inches of snow.
