Here are 10 things you need to know about this storm:
- Many towns in Maine will receive at least a foot of snow
- The heaviest snow will fall between 3am and 8am Sunday morning
- Locally 10-18" of snow may fall in a band along and just north of the Maine Turnpike
- The rain/snow line (believe it or not) should come very close to the coast and perhaps penetrate a few miles inland, which could hold totals down, but only slightly
- Winds will pick up from the east between 25-35 mph, creating blowing and drifting snow, reducing visibility even after the snow winds down
- Storms Warnings have been posted for mariners; it is advised that you stay in safe harbor for the duration of the storm
- Coastal flooding is possible around Sunday morning's high tide; specifically for coastal York County, where Coastal Flood Warnings are posted
- Because it has been so cold, road crews will not be using salt on roadways, since salt isn't effective in melting snow and ice when it's this cold
- The snow will wind down by midday over southern Maine and through the afternoon through eastern and northern areas
- Frigid temperatures follow the storm with many locations, including the coast, dropping to zero or below Monday night.
