Areas affected...portions of northern NH into ME

Concerning...Heavy snow 

Valid 031742Z - 032145Z

SUMMARY...Heavy snowfall with rates of 1-2 inches per hour will
continue to impact portions of northern ME into northern NH through
early evening. The greatest snowfall rates are expected across parts
of central into northern ME.

DISCUSSION...Heavy snow associated with an intense coastal low
offshore of ME will continue to pivot north/northwest through the
21-00z time frame. Strong isentropic ascent is evident in water
vapor satellite loops as the warm conveyor wraps around the
north/northwest sides of the cyclone. Forecast soundings across
northern portions of ME continue to indicate deep, saturated
profiles through the dendritic growth zone. This will aid in
efficient snowfall production, further aided by strong ascent and
warm advection in the 850-700mb layer. The heaviest snowfall rates
are expected from central into northern ME through 21-00z. Farther
west, periods of heavy snow are possible into northern NH, aided by
orographic influences. Though stronger forcing will be shifting east
of this area over the next couple of hours.
