Well, I'm very happy for ski resorts and snow lovers. But-for those of you hoping to travel Tuesday, the news is not good! Low pressure is going to take control of our weather pattern tonight, with snow arriving before dawn for most of Eastern Maine.
Thanks to heavy falling and blowing snow, winds over 35 mph and visibility under a 1/4 mile, expect blizzard conditions for much of the day on Tuesday into Tuesday night. The snow will taper Wednesday morning, but a gusty north to northwest wind will continue the blowing and drifting through Wednesday morning and mid-day.
How much snow? Over 20" for southern counties, 15-20" for central and eastern counties (including Augusta, Bangor, Bucksport, Ellsworth, Calais and Downeast Maine) with 10-15" in the Millinocket, Houlton, Caribou area.
Sunshine returns for Thursday, with some additional snowfall likely Friday morning.
Happy skiiing and snowmobiling (if that's your thing-otherwise....Red Sox head for spring training in a few weeks!)
