Winter Storm Warning

URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE...UPDATED
National Weather Service Gray ME
905 PM EST Fri Jan 18 2019

...SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM EXPECTED THIS WEEKEND...

A significant storm will move northeast on Saturday night,
spreading snow across the region. By Sunday, this system will
track along the southern New England coastline and through the
Gulf of Maine. This will result in heavy snow across the region
with widespread areas with double digit snowfall. Along the
coastline, a brief period of sleet may fall during the day
Sunday. Needless to say, driving conditions will be treacherous
starting Saturday night and especially Sunday when snowfall rates
will increase.
