Maine Meteorologists Tracking Large Nor’Easter That Could Bring Widespread Snow, Flooding & Power Outages
Let's be real, we've had it pretty easy so far in Maine as far as our winter precipitation is concerned. We've had only a handful of plowable snow events this season and, of those, the majority really only produced a few inches of the white stuff.
For people who despise the snow and wished they lived in a much warmer climate like the Florida Keys, this has been a welcomed trend. However, for those people who enjoy getting on on their snowmobile or skis, then it has been a little less than desirable.
But worry not snow lovers, it looks like the weather pattern will once again be changing and, bringing with it, more snow for the Pine Tree State. I mean you know what they say, right? If you don't like the weather in Maine, wait a minute and it will change.
As we get ready to head into a fairly mild winter weekend, temperatures in some parts of Maine will climb into the 50s. This is welcome news for people who want to get outside and stand on their deck or watch their driveway turn into a bowl of mud soup.
However, this mild weather doesn't hang around for long as Maine meteorologists say their is increasing likelihood that Vacationland will get slammed with a nor'easter early next week. Buckle up.
According to a weather blog from WGME Chief Meteorologist, Christian Bridges, it looks like the chances are growing for Maine to get slammed with a February nor'easter on Monday night and Tuesday.
Bridges goes on to explain that this storm, if it stays on track, will likely bring widespread snow as well as strong gusty winds, higher than normal tides and the potential for coastal flooding. And, because of those gusty winds, we can't rule out the possibility of power outages around the state.
We will continue to update this as more information becomes available and when the news station releases a potential snowfall map.
