Midcoast Forecast - March 14, 2018

We are still feeling the impacts of our latest March nor'easter Wednesday afternoon with the storm now centered to our east over the Canadian Maritimes and with snow stretching west across New England and into the eastern Great Lakes region. The heaviest snow fell between the late morning and mid afternoon Tuesday when Midcoast locations saw between 6 and 12 inches in just 6 hours. Blizzard conditions were also felt during this period with heavy snow and strong northeast winds gusting between 30 and 40mph making for periods of white outs. Snow continued to pile up through Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning with many Midcoast locations up to 1.5 to 2 feet of snow by noon Wednesday.

Snow has been lighter for Wednesday afternoon and has had a harder time sticking at the coast with temperatures hovering near or above freezing. Periods of light snow will continue off and on through the remainder of Wednesday with a couple more rounds possible Wednesday night. The storm will slowly exit Thursday and into Friday keeping skies cloudy with some snow showers mainly in the high terrain. The feel of winter sticks around for the weekend with temperatures dropping to the teens overnight and highs in the 20s despite partly to mostly sunny skies.

There is a chance of more snow on the way with another nor'easter possible Tuesday afternoon and into Wednesday. Stay tuned for updates!
