Thursday Storm to Thump Northern Maine With Snow

While tomorrow's storm is looking like spring time rain showers for most of New England, areas of northern Maine, as well as the White Mountains to an extent, are looking at a more wintry storm.


This storm will begin as snow across much of Maine, with a transition to a rain/snow mix and finally all rain from south to north. Once you get north of Maine's lakes and mountains, into the northern Moose River Valley and northern highlands, the snow will persist into the afternoon. In these areas, a few inches of snow is possible.



These areas will likely see a mix with rain by the afternoon, which will wash some of the accumulation away. Once you get into northern Aroostook county, the storm will likely be snow from beginning to end. This could allow the storm to squeeze out six plus inches, including the St. John River Valley.



Northern Aroostook county is under a winter weather advisory from early Thursday morning through early Friday morning. The strong late-March sun angle will help keep snow accumulations down as a bulk of the precipitation will fall during the day. This is why the alert is only a winter weather advisory despite up to 8 inches of snow possible. Road conditions will rebound very quickly.



New Hampshire's White Mountains could see a quick inch of snow tonight before transitioning to light rain showers and overcast skies by Thursday mid-morning. Naturally, the valleys will see a switch to rain first, with the transition taking longer as you get higher in elevation.


We're continuing to track a much more widespread and impactful storm for this weekend. You can see the latest forecast here. This will be updated this evening.
