Snowfall counter: Southern Maine puts points on the board

The storm Tuesday made sure all of Maine didn’t go without a sizable reminder that winter still happens.

As the storm moves northward, the first snowfall totals for much of the southern half of the state came through weather stations in the region.

The map below shows the latest 24-hour snowfall totals reported out of weather stations around the state. The reports are most current for the southern half of the state, reflecting snowfall in the early hours Tuesday, as the storm continued to drop still more of the white stuff.

While southern Maine got some of the first snowfall, the storm moving north promises to add to the early snowpack in northern and eastern parts of the state.

The National Weather Service projects around a foot of snowfall for most of Maine's northern and eastern counties through Tuesday night.

The forecast from the National Weather Service projects another 8-12 inches in this latest storm for Hancock, Washington and Aroostook, with 12-16 inches projected for parts of Penobscot, Piscataquis and Somerset counties.

Keep an eye out for weather-related closings and cancellation notices on the Bangor Daily News homepage and follow our live stream of photos and weather-related news from around the state this afternoon.

I’ll be updating totals from the National Weather Service this afternoon, when the latest 24-hour totals are reported.
