Not One, But Two Snowstorms To Hit Maine On Back-To-Back Days This Week
Last week, forecasters began to float the idea that a Nor'Easter could be churning our way for the middle of THIS week. But as with all weather forecasting, things can change at a moments notice and it appears that is exactly what has happened. What was once being looking at a powerful uppercut from Tuesday into Wednesday is looking more like 1-2 jab with both Tuesday and Wednesday delivering their own thump, (Sorry for the boxing terminology)
As of Sunday night, Tuesday looks like the more surefire wallop of snow for all of Maine. How much of a wallop all depends on what forecasting model you believe in. Some call for the mountains to get pounded, with more than a foot of snow expected. The only consensus amongst models seems to be that the coastline is spared any significant snowfall amount.
Lexie O'Connor from WGME took to Twitter to throw her predictions out for the entirety of the two storms. Southern portions of the state and along the coastline are probably staring at 2-4 inches, further inland will see a wider range of anything 4 inches to a foot. What remains a mystery is what Wednesday will bring. It could be rain, a wintry mix or it could end up being completely snow depending on the atmospheric conditions. The storm is still developing so forecasters should know more over the 24-36 hours.
The snow will be plowable, and the potential for a wintry mix on Wednesday could lead to treacherous travel and complications on whether or not schools will close or run normally. Stay tuned.
