Blizzard Conditions Across Maine

25 Dec 2017, 11:01 am

A developing low Christmas morning brought blizzard conditions to portions of Maine.

The increased winds and constant snow prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Blizzard Warning.

With snowfall rates of 2 to 4 inches per hour with the heavier, convective bands over Maine and the increasing winds, blizzard conditions created very limited visibility.

Gusts up to 50 mph were blowing snow and created white out conditions.

Within those heavier snow bands, snow could be localized to over a foot of accumulation. Cumberland, ME had a preliminary observation of 13″ before the snow had even ended.

The snow will start to lessen as we continue for the second half of the day but still be very careful outside if you must leave your house and venture out on the roads.
