Southern Maine Could See Its First Snowfall of the Season This Weekend
It really doesn't seem like that long ago that temperatures were in the 80's, sunshine was in the forecast every day and people were almost getting sick of all the heat in Maine. But if thought summer lasted forever this year, fall appears willing to disappear in a flash.
We were promised plenty of sweater weather filled with hot apple cider and nights around the fire pit.
Instead, northern Maine has already seen two snowstorms and southern Maine looks like it might join the snow party this coming weekend.
Shared on Twitter by Robert LaRoche, the EURO model is promising a nice wallop of snow for most of York, Cumberland and Androscoggin counties. Other counties in central Maine have a chance to see some flakes as well.
For all intents and purposes, let's hope that the EURO model if off on its accumulation predictions because those numbers are awfully high for an October storm.
Some of Maine's most trusted meteorologists, including Keith Carson, are already planting the seeds that this is going to happen however.
If this does come to fruition, it'll likely roll in Friday night into Saturday morning. If the accumulation is legit, it could complicate some trick-or-treating plans or Halloween day/night events that are planned. So will that accumulation be legit?
That's a tricky question. (no pun intended) We're set for a very chilly week in Maine, including a couple of nights rolling in below freezing. That could leave us ripe for some of the snow to stick. It's just what everyone wants as we set the clocks back this weekend. Snow on the ground and the sun setting at 3:30.
Everything is fine, things are going great.
