Here's the updated winter storm warning as of 11:22 AM Sunday, December 15th. The National Weather Service in Caribou had reduced the snowfall totals just slightly for our area, meaning we are to expect 7-14 inches of snow! Be very careful driving, as plows are having difficulty keeping up with the snow, and municipalities will have to run snow crews in shifts because of the duration of the storm, so roadways will be snow covered!

Remember, send you snow pictures to me at chris.popper@townsquaremedia.com and I'll post them on the website!
