If you're looking at the glass half full, positive side of things -- at least it'll be the kind of snow where we can have one last snowball fight before spring fully kicks into gear, since wet snow is the best for snowballs. But, we're talking about snow in mid-April in Northern New England, so it's absolutely acceptable to look at the glass half empty, because...

...UGHHHHH SNOW AGAIN?!

Granted, we haven't had that bad of a winter, and honestly, the snow that's expected on Friday won't be the bad either, especially if you're on the coast.

According to Channel 8 WMTW meteorologist Ted McInerney, Coastal Maine should expect mostly rain, but there's a chance since odds are the weather track could change over the next couple days, that we could see 1-2" of wet, slushy snow hit the coastal area, while more inland will see 2-3". Not TOO bad, but when we've hit 60's and near 70's a couple times over the last couple weeks, Ted's defeated/holding back tears face here speaks volumes:

As far as New Hampshire goes, WMUR meteorologist Kevin Skarupa says it's pretty much going to be the same as Maine. Not too much accumulation, maybe about 2-4" in western and and central parts of the state, as well as in the mountains, and areas around that will only have an inch or two.

So, on the plus side, at least it won't be a walloping storm, and it shouldn't really affect the morning or afternoon commutes at all, but could still just be enough to be annoying. Either way, drive safe and enjoy what will probably be the last powder we see for hopefully another 7 months.

Please? Weather Gods? No snow until November? Kthanks.
