MIDCOAST — Locals were already looking ahead to when they grumbled Friday, during the last snowstorm, that ‘Monday’s going to be a real mess, maybe seven inches.’ That was when the outlook was for rain and snow. Now, it is for plain snow, starting this evening.
The National Weather Service is calling for two to four inches tonight and then more tomorrow, with a winter storm warning.
A storm is tracking up the Eastern Seaboard, with “widespread accumulating snow,” according to the NWS. “Gusty winds and snow showers behind the system persist through Tuesday with another cold front crossing.”
Wait. There’s more:
“The next robust low pressure system arrives Wednesday night into Thursday spreading snow across much of the area with a transition to a wintry mix or rain for areas south of the mountains, said the NWS.”
Bring more wood in. Fill the bird feeders. Make all the usual storm precautions, just in case. Winter has arrived.
