Midcoast Forecast - March 8, 2018

Thursday has been a messy go of it as a strong nor'east blasted the Midcoast with heavy wet snow and gusty winds. Most locations have picked up around a foot to a foot and a half of snow with some rounds of light snow continuing into the evening and early night. This has resulted in hazardous travel conditions and numerous power outages across Maine and New England.

The nor'easter will move onshore Thursday night and gradually unwind with snow tapering off into Friday allowing for some sunny breaks in the cloud cover to end the week. As the storm dies down the broad low pressure over the region will pull in another area of low pressure moving off the east coast to the south and send it into to our east over the Canadian Maritime as we head into late Friday and into Saturday. This secondary low will rapidly intensify and pivot west toward Maine sending a few more rounds of light to moderate snow in our direction into the weekend. The best chance for accumulations will be across northern and eastern Maine but the Midcoast will likely pick up another dusting to 2 inches.

Things calm down and clear out briefly on Sunday as highs rebound near 40 with light winds. Clouds will increase again through Monday as another nor'east moves up the east coast bringing another round of snow to the Midcoast Tuesday. The exact track of this next big storm is still up in the air along with potential snowfall amounts.
