Potential for significant weekend freezing rain event
Knox County Emergency Management Agency Director Ray Sisk has issued information regarding a significant weekend storm.
He forwarded the following information from the National Weather Service in Gray:
"While there is considerable uncertainty, all of the weather prediction models are showing the potential for a significant precipitation event across Maine and New Hampshire for this weekend.
At this time, it is too early to predict how much of the precipitation will fall as snow, sleet, freezing rain, and rain, but many of the models are showing the potential for a significant freezing rain event across portions of the two-state area. Based on the latest model predictions, a band of heavy freezing rain will likely develop across portions of Maine and New Hampshire; however, the location of that band differs among the computer forecast models. Currently, precipitation is expected to start during the day Saturday with the heaviest precipitation Saturday night and Sunday.
We will provide additional details as we get closer to this potentially significant event, but we want you to be aware of the potential for significant impacts this weekend, and stay tuned for future updates. We expect to provide the next update Thursday morning."
