More Precipitation Monday, Then Colder Tuesday 


A second storm system moves by on Monday bringing some precipitation to the eastern half of Maine. Looks like we will see a mix of rain/freezing rain/sleet and snow all depending on how far away you are from the coast. This is looking like a lighter event than this past one but freezing rain could still make roads very slippery throughout the day Monday.  The farther east you are the better chance you have for seeing some precip although many coastal locations may only see rain with this event because of the warmer temperatures. Precipitation will continue into Monday night and overnight into Tuesday.


By Tuesday things quiet down and become very cold as a high pressure system moves into the area filtering in much colder air from Canada. Overnight lows Tuesday night fall into below zero in most spots. Highs on Christmas Day will only make it into the single digits and teens. We will be seeing sunshine though which will be nice. Temperatures return to more seasonable levels for Thursday and Friday. Friday looks like our next chance for some winter weather as a disturbance moves in bringing us some snow showers.


Monday: Rain, snow, sleet, and freezing rain showers, especially east. Highs in the 30s.


Tuesday: Partly cloudy. Colder with highs in the teens and low 20s.


Christmas Day: Mostly sunny with highs in the mid-single numbers to mid-teens.


Thursday: Partly sunny with highs in the 20s and low 30s.


Friday: Cloudy with snow showers. Highs in the 20s.
