Winter Storm Watch

URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE...UPDATED
National Weather Service Gray ME
625 PM EST Thu Jan 17 2019

...SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM POSSIBLE THIS WEEKEND...

A significant storm will move northeast on Saturday, spreading
snow across the region Saturday night. 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 potentially
widespread areas with double digit snowfall. Along the coastline,
a brief period of sleet and a short period of freezing rain may
fall during the day Sunday.

Needless to say, driving conditions will be treacherous Saturday
night and especially Sunday when snowfall rates will increase.
Confidence levels that a high impact event will affect the area
are high. However, there is still quite a bit of uncertainty as to
the exact timing and amounts of the snowfall.
