MD 0134 CONCERNING WINTER MIXED PRECIPITATION FOR MUCH OF MAINE AND VICINITY
MD 0134 Image
 
 
Mesoscale Discussion 0134 
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 
1112 AM CST Tue Jan 24 2017 
 
Areas affected...Much of Maine and vicinity 
 
Concerning...Winter mixed precipitation  
 
Valid 241712Z - 242315Z 
 
SUMMARY...A mix of winter precipitation -- ranging from 
sleet/freezing rain to the south and snow to the north -- will 
continue shifting northward/northwestward across northern New 
England today. 
 
DISCUSSION...Latest radar loop shows widespread wintry precipitation 
across central and northern Maine at this time, with scattered 
patches of winter precipitation farther west and south.  Meanwhile, 
temperatures across southern New England -- outside of 
isolated/higher terrain locales and protected valleys -- continue to 
rise above freezing. 
 
The precipitation is being supported by strong ascent driven by 
intense warm advection, as a 60 kt easterly/east-southeasterly 
low-level jet is observed to the north of a vertically-stacked low 
now residing off the mid-Atlantic coast and shifting slowly 
north-northeastward with time. 
 
Snow continues to fall across northern and western portions of Maine 
at this time, where low-level warm advection has not yet pushed 
temperatures above freezing in the lower troposphere.  Rates 
averaging 1/2" to locally 1" per hour will persist into the 
afternoon, though an eventual changeover to sleet/freezing rain is 
expected from south to north as warm advection persists. 
 
Farther south and east across Maine, temperatures remain below 
freezing at the surface at this hour, away from coastal areas.  
However, an above-freezing warm nose in a roughly 850 mb to 700 mb 
layer (as revealed by the morning GYX RAOB and progged by point 
soundings from the models) is yielding a mix of freezing rain and 
sleet, with substantial accumulations occurring in some areas 
(reports of 1.5" of sleet accumulation, and .25" freezing rain 
accretion have been received). 
 
The heaviest band of precipitation is now occurring across central 
Maine, including Piscataquis, Penobscot, southern Aroostook, and 
Washington counties.  The latest MLT observation (Millinocket 
Municipal Airport) has transitioned from snow to freezing rain in 
the past 90 minutes or so, reflective of the expected precipitation 
trend across central and northern Maine through the afternoon hours.
