  1. Buckled up....let's see if Mr. N Stream takes the dive and gives me the crushing GOM slowdown/capture. Returning to professional lurking mode after using my one post per winter format.

    With these conditions (and it's not going to get much better), its 60+ minutes back to portland and probably 3 hours of slogging to Bar Harbor. I'd shoot the middle and head for Rockland.

    I'm not that valuable. Just the night watch commander. Pic two minutes ago, Wainwright Fields, South Portland. 23 deg. Just shy of heavy snow, with about 2000 feet visibilty. Finally, people are off the roads....except us and plows.

    February 12/13 SWFE/Coastal Observations

    10PM: Outside my office at South Portland PD, 20 deg, moderate snow with wind effects taking the visibility down to 1/4 mile and less at times. Busy night with several crashes, slideoffs and end of driveway stuck cars. At least 7 inches on the ground already, ratios range from almost fluffy on the west end of the city to almost dense pack along the shoreline of Casco Bay. Rumor has it that Cantore is somewhere within a couple miles of me; this does not make my work night easier.

    South Portland.....band just came ashore. Fairly impressive increase in rates over the snow, snow-, and freezing drizzle we've had constantly for the past 12 hours. Wind pushing up as well.

    Do We have one More in Us?

    Emerging from lurker mode after a winter of chuckles. While a whiff for the tri-county area 50 miles wide that the New England Forum seems to focus on, the discussion from NWS Gray still seems to indicate a very decent impact for a large percentage of the New England Coastline. NWS Caribou is hedging the bets, but still prepared to pull the trigger on a Blizzard Watch for their coastal region. I thank you all for your wide-angled views here on the New England Forum, and will go gas up my snowblower here in Maine (A part of New England since 1640). Returning to lurker mode with tongue firmly frozen in cheek.... Robomaine. From Gray: BOTH THE EURO AND THE CANADIAN MODELS SHOW A DOUBLE STRUCTURED SYSTEM...ALLOWING THE SURFACE LOW TO PINWHEEL BACK TOWARDS THE GULF OF MAINE BRIEFLY WEDNESDAY MORNING...BEFORE HEADING EAST AND OUT TO SEA. FOR NOW...HAVE PREFERRED A BLEND OF THE EURO AND CANADIAN QPF WITH THE NAM AN OUTLIER DEPICTING NO PRECIPITATION OVER THE FORECAST AREA. THIS BLEND WOULD RESULT IN SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW OVER SOUTHERN AND CENTRAL AREAS...WITH MORE SNOWFALL ALONG THE MIDCOAST REGION. THIS WOULD MAINLY BE 5TH/6TH PERIODS WITH THE PRECIPITATION...SO NO HEADLINES WILL BE ISSUED THIS PACKAGE. WILL STILL CONTINUE TO UPDATE OUR PARTNERS THROUGH NORMAL CHANNELS OF THE STORM POTENTIAL. WITH SIGNIFICANT HEIGHTS BUILDING IN THE WEST...ANY PREMATURE CUTTING OFF OF THE UPPER LEVEL SYSTEM WOULD GREATLY CHANGE THE SNOWFALL FORECAST. From Caribou: AT THIS TIME IT APPEARS THAT DOWNEAST AREAS WILL BE THE HARDEST HIT WITH BLIZZARD CONDITIONS POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY ACROSS WASHINGTON COUNTY. THE NAM AND GFS HAVE BOUNDARY LAYER WINDS LATE TUE NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY OF 50 KNOTS ACROSS COASTAL WASHINGTON COUNTY WHICH COMBINED WITH HEAVY SNOWFALL WOULD LEAD TO A BLIZZARD.

    Emerging from lurker mode......standing outside my office with a package of weenie rolls, waving it toward the ocean as bait.....Wind doing a def shift and, for lack of a better term, it smells like [email protected] South Portland fearing its about to set up about ten miles to my south.....back to lurker mode unless I jackpot before I go home in three hours.....robomaine.
