Another monster of a storm has developed off the east coast and this one appears to be just far enough to the southeast so that we will avoid the heaviest snowfall. We will not escape the winds however and the NWS has issued a Storm Warning in the Marine Forecast. A Coastal Flood Warning is in effect for Cumberland and York counties. Minor flooding is expected here between 6-10 PM tonight with more significant flooding taking place between 6-10 AM Friday. Being on the northern fringe of the storm is making snowfall predictions very difficult and the computer models keep changing their outlook with each run. Right now it appears that a band of 3-6 inch snowfall is possible from York County westward into the lakes region of New Hampshire. North of there very little snowfall is expected. Any snowfall will end by early Friday afternoon as the storm moves eastward giving way to a ridge of high pressure. The high promises to bring us a mostly sunny Saturday with above normal high temperatures. An approaching cold front will bring increasing clouds on Sunday and perhaps a few showers on Monday.
