(RYAN BRETON BLOG) -- Parts of the state are waking up to nearly two feet of snow this morning, and it'll continue to snow for much of the day as the center of the storm slows down over New Brunswick, Canada.
There snow will be off and on in central and southern Maine, where snow showers and squalls will pass through occasionally. In northern Maine and in the mountains, the snow will be steadier, and this is where the most accumulation will occur throughout the day.
As you head out the door this morning, it's still snowing in most areas, but the intensity is lighter. There can be some heavy bursts of snow though, especially farther north.
Holes and breaks in the snow bands start to form through the morning and midday.
By afternoon, conditions will be much improved. Scattered snow showers will linger in southern Maine. If you're out and about, be aware a quick snow shower or squall could pass through and coat the ground again. The snow will be a bit more continuous in the mountains and far north.
Daytime accumulations will be minor for most, but be aware any squalls that pass through can quickly coat the ground.
