Heavy Snow Ending Thanksgiving Morning

Chris Ewing

Updated 6 hours ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm system intensifying along the Mid-Atlantic Coastline will continue to bring snow to all of Maine tonight. The snow will be heavy at time during the evening hours before tapering off late at night as the storm moves through the Gulf of Maine. Along the coastline and over the islands the snow will likely briefly mix with rain and sleet, before turning back to all snow late at night. Snowfall rates of over 1” per hour will make travel very difficult tonight, so if you can postpone your travel till tomorrow you will have much better conditions. Along with the heavy snow will be an increasing north  to northeast wind which at times could gust to over 30 mph along the coastline. The rather gusty wind will create some blowing and drifting of the snow.

Snow & Mix Developing This Afternoon, Cloudy & Chilly Thanksgiving Day

Todd Simcox

Updated 15 hours ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

As of noontime, low pressure was moving out of the Carolinas and will continue on a northeast track towards southern Nova Scotia. Precipitation will devleop from southwest to northeast across the state this afternoon. Some areas, especially south of Dover-Foxcroft and Lincoln, will see precipitation start as mix or even plain rain while areas further north start as all snow. The airmass will cool down as the afternoon and evening progress so areas that see rain or mix at the onset will see the precipitation changeover to all snow fairly quickly and the bulk of the storm is expected to be in the form of snow. Road conditions will deteriorate this afternoon and evening as the precipitation spreads across the state and picks up in intensity. Snow will continue heavily at times tonight, possibly mixing with some sleet along the coastline. Winds will pick up tonight as well with north/northwest winds averaging 15-25 MPH which could result in some scattered power outages.

Mix to Snow This Afternoon, Heavy at Times Tonight

Chris Ewing

Updated 23 hours ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure near the Carolinas this morning is expected to move northward along the east coast and intensify today. This new storm will begin to spread a mixture of rain and snow across our region later this morning and afternoon from southwest to northeast. Precipitation will begin to pull cold air from aloft down towards the surface with the bulk of the precipitation becoming snow later in the afternoon, first over the interior then eventually along the coastline during the evening hours. The snow will become heavy at time during the evening hours before tapering off late at night as the storm moves through the Gulf of Maine. Along with the heavy snow will be an increasing north/northeast wind which at times could gust to near 30 mph along the coastline. The combination of the snow and wind will make conditions very difficult for travelers late this afternoon through tonight.

A second cold front will cross the Pine Tree State tonight and cooler air will continue to filter into our region as the night progresses. By daybreak tomorrow temperatures will range from the mid 20s to low 30s throughout much of the Pine Tree State.

Mild & Dry Today, Storm Moves in for Wednesday & Thanksgiving

Jessica Conley

Updated 2 days ago

We’ll see temperatures remaining mild for today with a mix of sun and clouds and breezy conditions. Things become cooler by Wednesday after a second cold front moves though. Things then get very interesting for Wednesday night into Thanksgiving Day. We’ll see increasing clouds Wednesday morning before snow showers develop Wednesday afternoon from south to north. Snow will continue Wednesday night and intensify overnight. The track of the low will determine the amount and type of precipitation. It looks like we could see some significant snowfall from this storm making travel difficult especially Wednesday evening and Thanksgiving morning. Winds will become gusty with this storm.
By late Thursday the storm clears out. We’ll see much cooler air in the wake of the storm and things stay chilly for Friday and Saturday. A few snow showers are possible during the day on Friday,

Rainy Today, But Better Tuesday, & An Analysis Of The Thanksgiving Day Possibilities

Jessica Conley

Updated 3 days ago

Today’s highs will be mild as we get into the warm sector (behind the warm front but in front of the cold front) of the first storm system of the week. Highs could top out in the mid to upper 50s for many. It will be difficult to enjoy the warmer temps since we’ll be dealing with rain all day. Rain will taper to showers during the afternoon hours. It’ll be breezy too, with winds from the southeast at 10 – 15 mph. Tuesday will be slightly cooler, but still above normal, with highs in the mid to upper 40s and low 50s and partly sunny skies.

Partly Sunny, Breezy & Cold Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 6 days ago

Cold high pressure will slide towards the Northeast today and Saturday with high temps running several degrees below normal both days despite partly sunny skies. High temps will range from the mid 20s to low 30s today and only a degree or two milder for Saturday. Temps will turn milder Sunday as the high drifts off to our southeast and a southwest breeze develops all across New England. A little light mixed precipitation may develop later Saturday night and early Sunday as the milder air begins to slide up into our region, with the best chance of seeing any light mixed precipitation or rain being found over northern parts of Maine. A storm will likely bring rain to Maine Monday into very early Tuesday as it tracks north well up to the west of New England. A weakening cold front will sweep the rain showers out to sea later Tuesday, with temps slowly falling back to more seasonable levels by Wednesday.

Few Snow Showers Today then Cold & Dry Friday

Chris Ewing

Updated 7 days ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

An upper level disturbance will pass through the area today bringing some clouds and scattered snow showers to our region. Most of Maine will see little if any accumulation of snow from this clipper system, but over Downeast parts of the state moisture working into the region from the ocean may allow a coating to an inch or so in spots. High temps today will range from the low 30s north to the low 40s south. As the trough moves by to our north late today, an arctic cold front will sweep offshore and a fresh batch of unseasonably cold air will ride back into the Northeast on a brisk northwest breeze.

Messy Mix Today, Drier, Breezy & Chilly Tuesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 week ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure is forecast to track to our north while another area of low pressure is forecast to develop near southern New England. This storm system will bring us a mixed bag of precipitation for today. Most areas, especially away from the coast, will see precipitation starting out as snow and or some mix this morning while areas closer to the coast start out as some mixed precipitation and even rain. As the day progresses, warmer air will move inland and we’ll see snow and mix changing to mix and rain from south to north across the state by late morning through the afternoon. There will be some snow accumulation before the transition to mix and rain takes place. Areas south of a line from Rumford to Dover-Foxcroft to Lincoln will see less than 1” of snowfall before changing to all rain. Areas along and north of that line will see 1”-3” of snow before changing to mix and rain this afternoon. Areas over far northern Somerset, northern Piscataquis and northwest Aroostook counties could see slightly higher snowfall totals of 2”-4” as the colder air will hang on longer over this area before any mixing occurs. Temperatures will range from the mid-30s to mid-40s from north to south this afternoon. Mix and rain will taper off early tonight followed by cloudy and drier conditions for the remainder of the night. Temperatures will drop to the upper 20 to mid-30s for nighttime lows.
