UNPOPULAR OPINION, OR DO YOU AGREE?
Can we go back to the days when school officials made the call to cancel at 5 a.m. the day of? Please?
(I will say, it's refreshing to be working in northern New England, where it seems waiting for the "snow day" call is still acceptable.)
Storm Update: The cold, dry air in place is going to prevent this storm from being a big deal. I still like the map posted here yesterday afternoon. Very little in the mountains, 1-3" inland, 3-6" closer to the coast. The only change would be for a bit over 6" in far Downeast Maine.
Allow some extra time for Thursday morning's commute, but we've had far worse this winter.
If you don't want snow, you'll like our latest forecast update.
It’s Red Cross Month and NEWS CENTER Maine is hosting a blood drive next Wednesday, March 28. There are five locations throughout the state. We would appreciate your participation!
As discussed yesterday, I couldn't write off the Wednesday-Thursday storm even though no model was tracking it close enough for a hit.
Now the models seem to be adjusting closer to us. The timeframe is late Wednesday into Thursday. We'll nail down the track of this one over the next 24 hours, then start to talk about specific totals. I'd plan for at least some snow during this time.
By the way, there's still a chance it shifts farther away from us, but we know the trend this winter has been the opposite.
It may feel like January, but I try to be optimistic; the sun angle today is equal to September 25!
There are two systems to watch this week. I'm confident the first misses south on Tuesday. All models suggest the Wednesday-Thursday one will miss too, but I'm not writing it off yet.
Clean up is just beginning after three damaging nor'easters battered the coast.
The NEWS CENTER Maine drone was up today and shows the destruction in Camp Ellis, where two streets are destroyed and multiple homes are damaged.
