CARIBOU, Maine — Residents across southern Aroostook County saw the first snowflakes of the season fall Thursday, as parts of the region were blanketed with several inches of snow while others received only a trace.
At presstime, an even bigger storm was forecast to hit Monday night into Tuesday night.
Joe Hewitt, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Caribou, said Friday that the bulk of the accumulation centered on southern Aroostook, after a swath of snowfall stretched over the area. Total accumulations were still being compiled in some places, he added.
“Houlton received the most snow, which was between 4 and 5 inches,” he said. “Linneus received 3.3 inches of snow and so did Cary Plantation.”
