Merrimack Valley Regional Weather Summary

     Good morning everyone! Today, we will see a powerful winter storm move into the area. The storm is moving off the eastern seaboard, and as it moves up the coast, is rapidly intensifying. The timing of the storm looks to be Monday night into Wednesday with the worst conditions looking to be Monday night into Tuesday. The National Weather Service has issued Blizzard Warnings in the area in preparation for the storm. Expect this system to be intense, with 20-30 mph winds and gusts ranging between 40-50 mph, white out conditions, and snowfall rates of 2-4 inches an hour. With the high winds, there's a chance of power outages. Please plan accordingly for this storm as it has historic potential in the area, and should not be taken lightly. Snowfall totals look to be 24-36 inches by the time the storm moves out of the area. Locally higher amounts are possible. After this winter storm, we see another system approach the area Friday. This one looks weaker and has a lot of time to change, but is something to keep an eye on as we get closer to Friday. Stay safe and have a great day! Don't forget to follow us on Twitter @UMLWeatherCtr and like our UMLWeatherCtr Facebook Page for the latest on the  winter storm. Thanks for the continued support!
