Winter Storm Warnings Posted for Thursday
February 12, 2014
Winter Storm Warnings have now been posted by the National Weather Service for all of Maine except the downeast coast. A Winter Storm Watch remains in effect for coastal Hancock and Washington Counties.
The storm is predicted to bring snow, and potentially rain, sleet and freezing rain in some areas, before exiting the state on Friday. Conditions will be different, depending on where you are. Snow is expected to begin by 7:00 am in southwestern sections, spreading north and east throughout the day.
Extreme caution is advised on the roads, as slippery road conditions and low visibility are expected.
Check weather updates often, as changes in the track of the storm may mean changes in the forecast for your location. A track further east will bring more snowfall. A track further west would mean more mixed precipitation and less snowfall.
Listen to your radio, television, or NOAA Weather Radio, or visit one of the websites above for weather reports and emergency information as the storm progresses.
Stay Safe on the Road:
As in all winter storms, if you can stay off the roads, do so. If you do, check road conditions before you set out, and observe MaineDOT's safe driving tips.

After the storm
On the Bright Side ...
The National Weather Service tells us we are closer to the spring equinox than the winter solstice. The days are getting longer and the sun's warming effects are getting stronger.
In the words of the poet Shelley "If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?"
