An intensifying storm system is going to track into the Gulf of Maine over the next 24 hours bringing very heavy snowfall and gusty winds to our region. Snowfall totals are expected to be in the 18-24 inch range with some locations in southwest Maine and southeast New Hampshire recording over two feet. It will be nearly impossible to measure the snow thanks to the winds that will gust to over 30 mph. The snow should start to taper off Saturday afternoon but there will still be considerable blowing and drifting going on as the wind continues to howl. The snow will finally come to an end Saturday night and with a ridge of high pressure moving our way look for a mostly sunny day on Sunday. Another storm is going to effect us on Monday but this one will track to our west so warmer air should arrive resulting in either rain or some mixed precipitation. Once the low goes by things are looking pretty quiet for the rest of the week.
