A cold front moved off the Maine coast Wednesday afternoon and behind it we can expect some very cold air to arrive here for Thursday. The day should feature plenty of sunshine but temperatures probably won't climb out of the teens at most locations. Look for clouds to move in Friday night in advance of a storm system that will be moving our way for Friday. Snow should break out early Friday morning and continue pretty much all day. As the storm moves up the east coast it is going to intensify and slow down. This will keep the snowfall going right into Saturday morning. The models are hinting are some very heavy bands of snowfall moving in Friday night at the height of the storm and if this materializes we could be looking at snowfall totals in the 18-24 inch range before the storm winds down Saturday morning. Northeast winds gusting to over 30 mph will result in considerable blowing and drifting of the snow. By Sunday we should see some sunshine and there is actually a slight warming trend in store for the beginning of next week.
