Winter Weather Alerts Continue for Maine

24 Feb 2021, 2:30 pm

A fast moving storm system moving through the Upper Midwest has brought a wave of snow and gusty winds. 3″ to 5″ are possible in the areas under winter weather alerts cross parts of Maine into Thursday morning.

The clipper-type low pressure center will continue its trek eastward into Thursday.  Upwards of nearly 1/2 a foot of snow has already fallen in from parts of North Dakota to Wisconsin.

Along the trailing cold front, a few areas in the Northeast could see quick bursts of snow that may quickly accumulate into Wednesday evening.

Snow will continue to fall across the far northest into early Thursday morning. Heavy snow is possible and will accumulate quickly. Due to the fast moving nature of this system, snowfall will come to an end by midday Thursday.

Additional snowfall totals will reach 2″ to 5″ for parts of Upstate New York to Northern Maine. Isolated amounts to 6″ may occur.

Although the front will bring cooler air across the region for Thursday, by Saturday many places will rebound with daytime highs back again into the 40s and 50s.

One last interesting facet with this storm.  After weeks of frigid arctic air, downslope winds brought in much warmer conditions and gave Aberdeen, SD quite a span of temperatures to be experienced just over the course of a week!
