Major Winter Storm on the Way for Tonight & Tomorrow 

Another low pressure system is moving into our area. It’ll continue to strengthen tonight and bring another round of heavy snowfall to the area. Locations farthest east will pick up the most snow and could see well over a foot. Far Down East Maine could even see close to 16-22 inches if the storm intensifies as some models project. It’ll become windy as well with winds along the coast from 25-35 mph.


Unlike yesterday’s storm, this storm will remain an all snow event with temperatures below freezing. We may see a 15:1 to a 20:1 ratio for snowfall to precipitation. The colder temperatures are, the higher the ratio and the more snowfall. A couple of the models are projecting over an inch of precipitation for the Bangor area with more liquid farther east and less farther west. It’ll be a light fluffy snow.


The timing will have the storm starting this evening, and wrapping up by mid morning on Sunday.


So, that being said, there will be hazardous travel conditions tonight and into Sunday. I expect church and event cancelations for much of the day tomorrow.


By Monday, a high pressure system moves into the area. It’ll be mostly sunny during the day. Another low moves in for Tuesday and will bring some snow to the area (yes, I’m serious). We’ll have partly sunny skies for Wednesday. Temperatures become very mild for Wednesday and Thursday.

Tonight: Lows 10°-22°   Snow starts this evening and continues overnight. It will be heavy at times. It will be windy, especially along the coast.


Sunday: Highs 21°-31° with snow continuing through mid morning.


Monday: Highs 18°-24° with partly to mostly sunny skies.


Tuesday: Highs 26°-34° with light to moderate snow during the day.


Wednesday: Highs 36°-42° with partly sunny skies.


Thursday: Highs 34°-41° with mostly sunny skies.
