Leftover Snow Showers Ending, with Brighter & Milder Weather Thursday 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


High pressure will bring brighter and milder weather to our region today with high temps reaching the mid 30s to low 40s from north to south. The high will move offshore tonight and clouds ahead of a warm front will begin to push back into the Pine Tree State. The warm front will be associated with a rather strong storm system lifting north through the Great Lakes Region Friday. The warm front will bring a wintry mix of precipitation to Maine later tonight into the morning hours on Friday. Most of the mixed precipitation across Maine will change to rain later Friday morning and afternoon from south to north as the warm front lifts north through the state. A trailing cold front will bring another round of mostly rain showers to our region later in the afternoon and evening. Cooler air will slowly begin to filter back into New England over the weekend as the cold front slides offshore later Friday night and a northwest breeze picks up.
Today: Partly to mostly sunny and milder, with high temps in the mid 30s to low 40s.


Thursday night: Thickening clouds, with snow, sleet and freezing rain developing late and low temps in the 20s to low 30s.


Friday: Mostly cloudy, early mix changing to mostly rain from south to north, with high temps in the mid 30s to mid 40s.


Saturday: Partly cloudy, with mountain flurries and high temps in the mid 30s to low 40s south.


Sunday: Partly cloudy and colder, with high temperatures in the upper 20s north to mid 30s south.


Monday: Variably cloudy, scattered snow showers possible and high temps in the 20s.
