A weak ridge of high pressure will bring fair skies to Maine this morning, but another disturbance aloft approaching New England from the west will likely bring a small storm to the Gulf of Maine by this evening. Additional snowfall is expected mainly during the night tonight with the heaviest accumulations occurring closer to the coast. Snow will start later in the day and continue into the evening. High pressure will bring brighter and milder weather to our region Thursday, with a warm front likely producing some rain showers in much of Maine Friday along with milder than normal temps. The rain may start as an icy mix, especially away from the coastline, if the precipitation arrives before the milder air arrives. Cooler air will begin to filter back into New England over the weekend as a cold front slips through our region later Friday night and Saturday morning.
Today: Increasing clouds with more snow and/or mixed rain/snow showers possible later in the afternoon and evening, with high temps in the 30s.
Thursday: Partly sunny and milder, with high temps in the 30s to low 40s.
Friday: Mostly cloudy, early mix changing to all rain with high temps in the mid 30s to mid 40s from north to south.
Saturday: Variably cloudy, with mountain flurries and cooler, with high temps in the mid 30s to low 40s south.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy, with some snow or rain showers. Temperatures in the upper 20s north and 30s south.
