This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for Maine, south central Maine,
southwest Maine, west central Maine, western Maine, New Hampshire,
central New Hampshire, northern New Hampshire and southern New
Hampshire.

.DAY ONE...Today and tonight.

Hazardous weather is not expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

There is increasing confidence for a potentially high impact storm
system to impact New England this weekend. The system will have the
potential to be another heavy precipitation event, although
precipitation type remains uncertain. The greatest chance for at
least 6 inches of snow is currently across the higher terrain of
north-central areas of New Hampshire and Maine with southern areas
more likely to experience mostly heavy rainfall. Additional heavy
rainfall could result in renewed rises on area rivers and streams. In
addition, a period of strong gusty winds will be possible Saturday
evening and Sunday. There is still a low probability that the storm
system could miss our area to the south.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will likely be needed.
