- 1-3″ for Sunday River likely
- Up to a foot for the highest elevations in Maine.
A winter weather system is moving into Maine today and big snowfall is expected above 3,500 feet in western parts of the state.
Included in that is Old Speck Mountain, which as the crow flies is just 17 miles from Sunday River. This peak, which is approximately 4k feet tall, is forecasted to see upwards of 12″ by Friday morning.
Sunday River, whose elevation is significantly lower, should see somewhere near 4″ if Ullr is feeling giving. That said, expect nighttime temps to dip low enough for the snowmakers to get out there and get the job done.
