...WIDESPREAD MODERATE TO HEAVY SNOWFALL THROUGH MONDAY...
.Low pressure will cross New England tonight before exiting through
the Gulf of Maine on Monday. This will bring another round of
snowfall to the region. Moderate to heavy snowfall rates are
expected overnight tonight into Monday morning, with travel impacts
expected for the morning commute. There is a growing signal that a
band of moderate to heavy snow will develop in the afternoon into
the early evening hours, bringing difficult travel for the evening
commute. Snow may be wet and sticky across the south, which may
increase power outage risk. Power outage risk increases further as
winds turn gusty out of the northwest behind the storm system on
Monday afternoon into Monday night.
...WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 PM EST MONDAY...
* WHAT...Heavy snow. Additional snow accumulations between 4 and 7
inches for a storm total of 5 to 10 inches. Northwest winds
gusting as high as 35 mph Monday evening.
* WHERE...Portions of south central and southwest Maine. Portions of
central, northern, and southern New Hampshire.
* WHEN...Until 10 PM EST Monday.
* IMPACTS...A snowstorm will bring plowable snow to the region with
a period of moderate travel impacts expected. Periods of moderate
snow and low visibility will be the biggest hazards. The potential
exists for snowbands tonight and again Monday afternoon that will
bring periods of locally heavy snowfall, which will lead to rapid
snow accumulations and extremely dangerous travel conditions. The
hazardous conditions could impact the Monday morning and evening
commutes.
