Central Maine Braces For A Huge Winter Storm
Winter isn't through with us yet. A huge winter storm is bearing down on Central Maine, and the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for the area lasting from 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 7 until 4 p.m. on Thursday, March 8.
The weather service forecast said "there is high confidence that a large portion of the forecast area will see 10 or more inches of snowfall, with the highest totals near 20 inches."
Meterologist Todd Gutner from News Center Maine is calling the storm a Nor'easter and agrees that big snowfall amounts are likely . He said the storm will likely start off lightly, with small accumulation before sunset on Wednesday. However, Gutner said the forecast shows the storm should get more intense during the evening and the rate of snowfall could reach an inch an hour in some places.
High winds could also be an issue as well.
