Our snowbanks continued to shrink today, with temperatures well above the freezing mark. On Saturday our temperatures will remain fairly mild, with areas of snow and rain showers as an upper level disturbance approaches from the west. Then our attention will turn to a developing area of low pressure along the Mid-Atlantic. That low will track northeast while intensifying later Saturday and into the day on Sunday. Due to some disparity with the computer models, the exact track of that low is still uncertain, which of course, makes the forecast a bit uncertain at this point. Right now I'm thinking the most snow will fall in easternmost Maine with 5-10" by Sunday night with less snow further west and south. There is a Blizzard Watch posted for Sunday for Eastern Maine, where winds and snow may reduce visibility to a 1/4 mile or less at times.

It will be very important to check back with us later tonight, and especially during the day on Saturday as we get closer to the storm; the forecast story will clarify as we get closer to Sunday. A shift in the track either way will dramatically change the current forecast, so keep checking-in with us!
