The weather pattern over Maine remains quit active, After the storm the last 2 days that dumped upwards of 2' in many areas we have another storm system that will be tracking thru the great lakes west of Maine into NY state, This track once again will place us on the warm side as we will have a strong LLJ transporting warmer air from the south over shallow colder air at the surface, This storm will produce more rain then the last one.

As the storm moves in thurs night into friday, Look for it to start out as snow for most of the area, The coast may start out as all rain with some accumulations inland before the change over, The mtns and Central and Northern Maine look to hold onto the cold longer but even these areas will changeover as well, Qpf amounts look to be in the 1-2" range, There may be some strong gusty winds along the coast and into the higher elevations, Some of these stronger winds may mix down inland, So Advisory's may need to be posted, I will be posting a map mid afternoon after the 12z model runs.

Once this system moves thru on Saturday, Look for clearing and colder air to move in for the holidays with a slight chance at some snow possibly on Christmas in the Southern areas and a more significant chance at our next storm around the 27th................... gade

Here is the map to what we may expect in Fri/Sat storm, Front end snow for some then maybe some backside snows once the front comes thru and temps crash back SE behind the front,There could possibly be slightly higher amounts in the higher elevations above 2,000' if we can hold onto the colder air longer in the mid levels...........gade

Very depressing.  How it can change in such a short time is unreal. Angry  This means we are gonna be dealing with high water also.

You think there will be more snow or less snow in the Jackman/County area after this storm. I see the snow map, but how much rain is coming for up north?

Going to up the totals some as it looks like some areas will be holding on to snow/sleet a little bit longer which will cut into the amount of rain that will be seen............
