Weekend snow watch posted
But meteorologist Steve Capriola said it was only a watch at the moment and it appeared that the most significant snowfall could increase the misery of people in Maine who are still dealing with the effects of last week's ice storm.
He said there would be less snow to the west and north, but even in Concord, he said: "It will be plowable snow."
As of late afternnoon Friday, the expectation was that the snow would begin late Sunday afternoon and continue into Monday morning, perhaps a 12-hour snow.
The weather service has already posted a small craft advisory along the Seacoast, from southern New Jersey to the northern tip of the Maine coast.
Capriola said late Friday afternoon that an update had just been posted, as they are frequently. So if the "watch" needs to become a "warning," or the storm changes direction, the National Weather Service will keep the public informed about those changes.
