Hello Winter! Snow Rolling In for Saturday Night and Sunday
December 13, 2013
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for the lower half of the State this weekend, from Saturday evening through Sunday evening.
Right now, a storm is forecast to arrive after dark on Saturday, moving in from west to east. However, today snow showers are expected in western Maine this afternoon, and breezy conditions will make cold temperatures feel even colder across the state. It must be winter!
It will be a good idea to get all errands run before Saturday afternoon, then settle in for the potential of an old-fashioned snowstorm.
Stay tuned to your favorite forecaster to see how this storm will affect your area. Storm watches may be extended, or altered, and warnings or advisories may be issued closer to the event. For more weather information:

Enjoy the winter
Snow may not seem like a blessing while you're shoveling it, but think about weekends ahead when you can dress warmly and get out to snowmobile, snow-shoe, cross-country or downhill ski. Maine in the winter is a beautiful place.
