Snow, Ice and Rain Amounts from the 13 Feb 2008 Winter Storm

Downeast/Northern Maine was hit hard by a Winter Storm on 13 February 2008. A low pressure center developed off the East Eoast brining snowfall to most areas of Maine on Tuesday night. As the storm system moved up the east Coast it ushered in mild (above freezing air) over the downeast coast bringing a mix of snow, freezing rain, and rainfall to the area. Below is a list of precipitation amounts recieved by the National Weather Service. The public also is encouraged to call in their storm total amounts at our automated system (1-877-633-6772).
