Monday’s Potential Nor’easter For Maine Has Already Fallen Apart
People awoke on Tuesday morning to find mixed results to the first true Nor'easter for Maine in 2021. Many parts of the state got a ton of snowfall, while others fell short in terms of total accumulation. So if you're feeling a little disappointed that you didn't wake up inside a personal igloo of two feet of snow, there was a chance that a second nor'easter was going to roll in on Sunday or Monday of next week.
Shared on Twitter by Robert LaRoche, there was a lot of promise amongst multiple forecast models that another large storm system was building and that atmospheric conditions were going to be ripe to drop another large nor'easter on northern New England. But as with many of the storms that have bubbled up this winter, it quickly and decisively fell apart.
Shared on Twitter by Keith Carson, winter enthusiasts met Carson's light troll-job with some slight bitterness while others quietly smiled. Despite the groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter, all of New England, and Maine in particular, hasn't seen much of a winter to extend. Yet another potential nor'easter falling apart at the seems days before it was set to arrive is not offering a promising outlook as days begin to get longer and average temperatures begin to increase.
There is still plenty of potential for February to be more snow-laden than January, but hope is weakening on daily basis as we're only a little over six weeks from the spring equinox. Sorry, winter lovers.
