Another nor’easter is expected to hit Maine Wednesday into Thursday and it could bring over a foot of snow.
The fine details will need to be worked out in the coming days but here’s what we know so far.
- The snow will develop Wednesday afternoon.
- The heaviest snow will be Wednesday night through the day Thursday.
- It will be mostly snow, however, some mixing and rain is possible at the coast.
- It’s still too early to determine this far out, but over a foot of snow is possible for parts of the state.
- Winds will be strong out of the northeast. Winds gusting 30 to 40 MPH are possible late Wednesday through Thursday.
- The combination of heavy snow and strong winds may lead to blizzard conditions for parts of the state.
- Tides are not running nearly as high as the astronomical cycle Maine experienced last week.
- Significant coastal flooding is not expected but splash over and beach erosion is possible.
