Rain and Snow Showers Tonight the Bright & Cold Tomorrow 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


A storm currently moving east from the Hudson Bay region will pull a sharp cold front across Maine later tonight. The cold front will be accompanied by a round of rain and snow showers as it crosses New England tonight, with any leftover precipitation end as snow late tonight as a very chilly airmass sweeps into our region on a brisk northwest breeze. Snow may accumulate up to a couple of inches over the mountains late tonight with the rest of the state seeing an inch or less. Temps late tonight will fall into the 20s, with a gusty wind making it feel even colder.

The combination of strong high pressure to our west and a storm near Newfoundland the next couple of days will bring a brisk and cold northwesterly wind to Maine both tomorrow and Wednesday. An arctic airmass sliding south out of central Canada will keep high temps running well below normal all across the Northeast despite a good deal of sunshine tomorrow and Wednesday. The high to our west will move towards the Mid-Atlantic Coastline later Thursday and Friday. A southwest breeze on the backside of the high will bring milder air back to Maine Thursday through Saturday, with little if any storminess indicated for our region right through the weekend.


Tonight: Becoming cloudy, with scattered snow and rain showers developing and becoming all snow before ending, with low temps in the upper teens and 20s.


Tuesday: More sun than clouds, blustery and chilly, with high temps in the upper 20s to mid 30s.


Wednesday: Mostly sunny, breezy and cold, with high temps in the mid 20s to mid 30s.


Thursday: More sun than clouds, with high temps in the upper 30s to mid 40s.


Friday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the 40s.


Saturday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the 40s to near 50.
