URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE National Weather Service Gray ME 336 PM EST Sun Dec 1 2019
...A LONG LASTING WINTER STORM WILL BRING TWO BOUTS OF SNOW TO PORTIONS OF THE REGION INTO TUESDAY...
.A complex area of low pressure will continue to develop off the southern New England coastline tonight. Snow will spread across southern New Hampshire this evening and into far southwestern portions of Maine. The snow may be heavy at times along and near the New Hampshire Massachusetts border as well as over the higher terrain of southern New Hampshire where snowfall rates of an inch per hour are possible.
Snow is expected to decrease in intensity during the day on Monday with another round of heavier snow possible Monday night into Tuesday primarily affecting southern and central portions of central Maine as well as eastern portions of New Hampshire.
Due to the long duration nature of this winter storm, storm total snowfall amounts will continue to be challenging to forecast. However, the prolonged period of snow will lead to wintry driving conditions lasting into Tuesday.
