This is from my good friends at WCSH6 NBC here in Maine -
Weather Notes: WEAK HIGH PRESSURE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE NICE WEATHER BREAK ACROSS PARTS OF NEW ENGLAND THIS AFTERNOON. WE WILL KEEP THE FAIR CONDITIONS GOING INTO THE NIGHTIME HOURS... BUT CLOUDS ARE EXPECTED TO INCREASE AS A LARGE STORM MOVING ACROSS THE SOUTHEASTERN STATES TRACKS OUR WAY TONIGHT. PRECIPITATION WILL GET UNDER WAY SUNDAY MORNING GENERALLY... IN THE FORM OF RAIN AND SNOW. EAST WINDS DEVELOP OVER THE REGION AS WELL. COASTAL AREAS WILL GO OVER THE RAIN FIRST... BUT EVENTUALLY ALL AREAS AWAY FROM THE MOUNTAINS WILL SEE THE SNOW GO OVER THE RAIN AS WELL. A MIX OF SNOW AND RAIN IS FORECAST OVER THE HIGHER BY LATE SUNDAY NIGHT. PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS WITH THIS INTENSE WEATHER SYSTEM WILL APPROACH 2 TO 4 INCHES OR MORE BY THE TIME IT MOVES AWAY. COMPLICATIONS FROM THIS EVENT WILL INCLUDE HEAVY WET SNOW ON BUILDINGS... POWER LINES AND TREES AT FIRST... AND THEN AS THE SNOW CHANGES OVER TO RAIN WE WILL START TO SEE A SHIFT TO FLOODING PROBLEMS. ADDITIONALLY... THE STRONG EASTERLY WINDS THAT ARE FORECAST AS THIS WEATHER SYSTEM NEARS SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND WILL PRODUCE COASTAL FLOODING AND EROSION... ESPECIALLY AT HIGH TIDE. THIS WILL BE A SLOW MOVING STORM. WE ARE GOING TO BE DEALING WITH ITS EFFECTS FROM SUNDAY EVENING THROUGH MONDAY. THE STORM WILL EVENTUALLY MOVE SLOWLY AWAY FROM THE REGION TUESDAY... SLOWLY EASING ITS IMPACT ON OUR REGION THROUGH WEDNESDAY. MOST AREAS WILL SEE DRIER WEATHER BY LATE THURSDAY... AS SHOWERS FINALLY TAPER OFF. DAYTIME TEMPERATURES DURING THE STORM ARE GOING TO STAY BELOW NORMAL... BUT A SLOW WARMING TREND GETS UNDER WAY AT MIDWEEK WITH MUCH IMPROVED WEATHER FORECAST BY FRIDAY. (NWS/GYX)
Fun to live at the beach. We're pretty prepared, but hoping for no flooding. The tides are at their highest this time of year because of the astronomical pulls... so it could be ugly. The neighborhood coalition went around and warned us to be prepared. So, we'll be hunkering down! Hope we still get to go to our open house tomorrow.
