    This is probably the last NWS Caribou map before the snow starts flying. They've kicked everything up by a few inches as the storm trends warmer and north.

    SREFs for Houlton Maine looking meaty.

    Isn't wishcasting frowned upon around here? Looking at seasonal historical data, the trend just doesn't line up with your forecast - although to be fair the VLM (Vegas Line Model) still might verify.

    I had just over a foot IMBY. On pace for a very productive season.

    Calling for 12"-18" in northern Maine before all is said and done. Definitely a long duration event, with the heaviest snow running tomorrow into Thursday morning. Currently light snow and 11F.

    Thankfully, the big rivers this far north have significant ice buildup with December temperatures well below normal, so they'll most likely survive the rainy onslaught.

    We got about 6 inches. That puts us at 47.3" for the season. And to think winter is just around the corner! Odds of a white Christmas currently 100%.
  9. Looking at a high of 10F tomorrow.
  10. Finished with 9.5" with the official NWS season total of 24.2". It really looks and feels like winter.
  11. Komatsu to the rescue. It's all about not getting caged in which happened at my house in 2007-2008 and it was bad logistically. Interested to see the snow totals from the hot spot of banding between Caribou and Presque Isle. We're at two feet plus for the season thus far (North of Caribou). It's shaping up to be a wild one.

    Current OBS 32.6F. It's coming down at a good clip. The rain/snow line seems to be holding just south of Mars Hill.

    Looks like we could see up upwards of a half foot in northern Maine, staying on the all snow side of the storm. We still have an inch or so on the ground from Saturday's precip.

    Disappointing yield projections in the far northeast. I was really hoping going into the week that this was going to be an early season blockbuster. It is not to be.
