After dropping 20 to 30 inches of snow in many locations across the state this historic storm finally exits through the afternoon. Winds will still be strong through tonight so blowing and drifting snow continues to be an issue. High pressure builds into northern New England Sunday providing us with sunny skies and lighter winds. Perfect weather for doing some clean up with all this snow.
**Smashing Old Records**
We saw a record snowfall in Portland of 31.9 inches. That breaks the old record of greatest snowfall of 27.1 inches set back on January 17 and 18 1979.
Deer Isle 18.0"
East Machias 18.0"
Tonight - Clearing skies with bitter cold wind chill values. Winds will continue to gust up to 30 or 40mph. Lows 0-12.
Sunday - Shaping up to be a beautiful day! We wake up to sunshine and hang onto it through the entire day. Winds will become light which will help with all the clean up efforts from this storm. High temperatures range from 24-31.
Extended Forecast - We cloud back up on Monday with some mixed precipitation moving in for the morning in the form of sleet and snow. Inland locations could get a couple inches before things change over to rain during the afternoon. Precipitation clears out early Tuesday morning and temperatures remain mild. Some places on Tuesday could see highs in the low 40s. On Valentine's day there will be a storm passing just to our south. Right now it looks like a miss, but we will have to keep a close eye on it.
