Sunny Start Today, Snow Showers Tonight 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


High pressure will briefly build into New England this morning before slipping off to our east later in the afternoon. The high will bring a good deal of sunshine to our region early today but clouds will increase across Maine later in the day as the high moves to our east and a warm front associated with a small clipper type storm slides east in our direction. The warm front will bring scattered snow showers to Maine later this afternoon and night, with the bulk of the snow showers falling across the northern parts of the state. Snowfall associated with the warm front will be light with generally an inch or less expected except across the far north where 1 to 3″ might pile up. Temps todaywill run several degrees below normal as highs hold in the 20s to near freezing.

The storm sliding east through southern Canada that pulls the warm front across Maine tonight will then draw its trailing cold front through our region later Saturday afternoon and evening. More scattered rain and snow showers will accompany the cold front passage through Maine later Saturday. As the wind shifts into the northwest behind the cold front a fresh batch of arctic air will build into the Northeast for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, with temps once again running well below normal despite a good deal of sunshine each day.


Today: Sun to increasing clouds, with highs in the 20s to very low 30s.


Saturday: Variably cloudy, scattered rain and snow showers, with high temps in the upper 30s to low 40s.


Sunday: Mostly sunny, breezy and colder, with high temps in the 20s.


Monday: Mostly sunny, with highs in the upper teens to mid 20s.


Tuesday: Mostly to partly sunny and still cold, with high temps in the 20s to near 30.
