Early Wintry Mix to Rain Showers Today 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


Low pressure passing just to our north today will slowly pull a warm front through Maine during the day. The approaching front will bring a mixture of snow, sleet and rain to our region early today, but as the warm front lifts to our north the wintry mix should change to all rain as temps warm to the upper 30s to mid 40s from north to south. Skies will begin to clear back out as the storms trailing cold front sweeps through our area later tonight.

High pressure will bring fair and seasonably mild weather to Maine Saturday morning, but clouds ahead of our next storm will begin to return to our region later in the afternoon. The new storm will likely slide off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline Saturday night and then slowly move northeast just to our south Sunday and Sunday night. This new storm will likely bring a mixed bag of precipitation to Maine beginning later Saturday night and continuing into early Monday morning. The exact track of the storm will determine precipitation types across our region, but at this point in time it appears northern parts of Maine will see mostly snow, with central, southern and coastal Maine seeing a mix of rain, ice and snow.


Today: Morning wintry mix changing to rain showers, with high temps in the upper 30s to mid 40s.


Saturday: Partly sunny then increasing clouds, with high temps in the 40s.


Sunday: Blustery, with snow, ice and rain likely and high temps in the 30s.


Monday: Possible early mix then partly sunny and blustery, with high temps in the mid 30s to mid 40s.
