Snow squall hits Bangor; little accumulation expected

Posted March 02, 2011, at 4:43 p.m.

A fast-moving snow shower is darkening the Greater Bangor area, though the squall is not supposed to leave more than an inch or two of snow. Weather forecasters had predicted the storm would pass north of the region.

The National Weather Service says that by Wednesday evening the region will see more snow showers and patchy blowing snow before 11pm, then a chance for flurries. Right behind the storm is a cold front that will drop tonight’s temperature to a low of around -1, with wind chill values as low as -19. Temperatures in the coastal areas are expected to  drop into the single numbers above zero.
