Gray — The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Knox and coastal Waldo counties, in effect from Wednesday morning through afternoon, March 26, due to the intense storm that will brush the region beginning late Tuesday night, March 25.

As the storm tracks toward Nova Scotia, a band of snow is expected to fall near the Maine coastline. The Midcoast region has the greatest potential to see significant accumulation from this storm.

Strong gusty winds will accompany this system, causing blowing and drifting of the snow on Wednesday. Visibilities may be reduced to less than a half mile at times.

A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel. Temperatures are expected to be in the upper 20s to low 30s with north winds 20 to 30 mph, with gusts up to 50 mph possible.

The Warnings/Advisories tab of VillageSoup’s Weather link always carries current advisories for Midcoast Maine.
