...A LONG DURATION WINTER STORM WILL BRING A FINAL ROUND OF SNOW TO PORTIONS OF THE REGION THROUGH TUESDAY...
.Snow remains light and intermittent across much of the area tonight, however broad bands of snow are beginning to take shape over the Gulf of Maine, tracking onshore this evening. This comes in response to a developing low pressure near the 70/40 benchmark, which will help intensify snowfall late tonight into tomorrow as it moves into the Gulf of Maine. The heaviest snow will likely occur early Tuesday morning into mid-day Tuesday across central and midcoast Maine, with greater uncertainty further southwest including the Portland area.
