Dry & Chilly both Weekend Days

Chris Ewing

Updated 7 hours ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

High pressure currently working east from western Ontario will bring generally quiet and chilly conditions to Maine this weekend and Monday as well. A bit of moisture trapped in the low to mid levels of the atmosphere over the weekend along with a light onshore breeze will likely bring some patchy clouds and possibly a few flurries to parts of Maine this weekend, with the most likely time to see scattered flurries being Sunday. A light northerly breeze over the weekend will keep the temps rather chilly both weekend days, with highs holding in the 20s to around 30 and lows running in the single numbers north and teens south.

Drier & Cooler Today through Sunday

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 day ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

High pressure approaching New England from the west will bring brightening skies to Maine both today and Saturday with most clouds being found across the north and mountains. High temperatures today will range from the mid 20s to low 30s from north to south with temperatures on Saturday running a few degrees cooler. A storm system developing over the southeastern States over the weekend may get close enough to Maine to bring some light mixed precipitation to Maine Monday, but at this point in time it appears any precipitation that does fall in Maine will be on the light side.

Todd Simcox

Updated 3 days ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure is forecast to move through the Gulf of Maine bringing a wintry mix to the area today. Temperatures will be cold enough so that precipitation falls as snow and mix for areas north and west of Greenville to Millinocket while the rest of the state sees mix and rain. Temperatures will range from the mid-30s to mid-40s for highs from north to south today. Colder air will begin to filter into the state this evening through the overnight hours as low pressure moves to our east. As the colder air arrives, snow, mix and rain will change to all snow from Dover-Foxcroft to Lincoln northward with rain and mixed precipitation changing to snow and mix elsewhere. Temperatures will cool off to the mid-20s to low 30s for nighttime lows.

Rain & Mix Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 3 days ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure will bring a mixed bag of precipitation to Maine today with much of the precipitation from the Lincoln and Dover-Foxcroft areas on south falling as rain or a mix. In areas north and west of the Lincoln and Dover-Foxcroft regions a combination of snow, sleet freezing rain and a little rain will fall today. Colder air will begin to creep south through our region as the developing storm to our south lifts north through the Gulf of Maine tonight. The colder air will cause the rain south and mixed precipitation north to change to mostly snow by Thursday morning. As the storm continues to lift up into the Canadian Maritimes Thursday the snow and mix will taper off from south to north.

Lots of Clouds Today, Mix & Rain Wednesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 4 days ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low clouds will prevail today providing us with gray skies for the rest of our Tuesday. High pressure sliding to our east today will cause winds to turn around to the east/southeast. The light onshore breeze will result in the chance for some areas of very light snow, icy mix and/or patchy drizzle to continue through the afternoon. Any precipitation will be very light and won’t amount to much of anything. Temperatures will top off in the low to mid-30s for highs this afternoon. Low pressure approaching from the Great Lakes region will cause light snow and mix to develop tonight mainly after midnight. Lows will range from the mid-20s to low 30s from north to south across the state.

Gray Skies Today, Rain & Mix Wednesday

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 days ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A light onshore breeze will develop today as high pressure slips off to our east, which will allow the low clouds to stick around much of our region during the day. We may see some patchy drizzle or even freezing drizzle in a few spots too. High temps today will run a bit above normal despite a lack of sunshine as highs reach the 30s to near 40 across all but far northern parts of Maine, where the highs will hold in the upper 20s.

Occasional Snow & Rain Showers through Saturday

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 week ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The big storm system that has produced the snow and ice to rain over northern parts of Maine and the ice to rain over the rest of the state has weakened but remains trapped over the Northeast. The surface storm and upper level low are now stacked vertically in the atmosphere and are also cut off from the jet-stream.

Rain & Snow Showers Continue Saturday, Drier & Brighter Sunday

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 week ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

The storm system that has been plaguing our weather for the past few days will finally move east of us this weekend allowing for some improvements in our weather as the weekend progresses. Moisture wrapping around the storm will continue to bring us rain and snow showers tonight and into Saturday. We’ll have plenty of clouds through the night tonight with scattered snow showers and periods of light snow. Areas north of Dover-Foxcroft and Lincoln will likely see the steadiest snow(mainly light) tonight through the first half of Saturday with total accumulations of about 1”-4” likely with some spots over Aroostook county seeing 5” by noontime Saturday. The snow over northern areas will taper to snow showers by lunchtime or so Saturday while the rest of the state sees some scattered rain and snow showers throughout the day. Temperatures will top off in the mid-30s for highs Saturday afternoon.

Rain & Snow Showers Possible Through Saturday

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 week ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure will move into central and northern New England during the day today and will keep us under the unsettled weather for the next few days. We’ll see variably cloudy skies this afternoon with scattered rain showers possible. Cooler air will be moving into the mid-levels of the atmosphere during the day which will allow for some wet snow to mix in with the rain showers especially over the higher terrain across northern and western parts of the state. Temperatures will range from the mid-30s to low 40s north and upper 30s to mid-40s south for highs this afternoon. Rain and snow showers will continue tonight with lows bottoming out around 30° on average.

On & Off Rain/Snow Showers through Friday

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 week ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The large storm system that brought the rain, ice and snow to Maine the past couple of day will continue to impact the conditions across the Northeast today and Friday. The storm both at the surface and aloft will wobble around the Northeast right into the first part of the weekend, while at the same time slowly weakening. The storm will continue to produce on and off showers both today and Friday with the bulk of the showers today falling as rain, but as colder air aloft gradually filters into our region some of the rain showers may mix with or change to wet snow later in the day over higher elevations. The colder air aloft will continue to work into Maine tonight and Friday allowing the rain showers to mix with or change to wet snow across much of our region. At this point in time it appears only minor accumulations of snow are likely in our area as the temps will hover near freezing or a bit above and the precipitation will generally be on the light side. The upper and surface lows will continue to drift off to our east and weaken over the weekend and that will allow for gradual improvement both weekend days. Temps late this week and over the weekend will continue to run a few degrees above normal.

Mix & Rain Today, Showers Possible Thursday & Friday

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 week ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Drier air moving into the mid-levels of the atmosphere has caused the precipitation to taper to some patchy drizzle and freezing drizzle across much of the state this morning. Roads could be icy in spots during the morning especially untreated surfaces north of Bangor. Low pressure will move towards central New England today and more precipitation will move in from the south especially later this morning through the afternoon. Warmer air will continue to move northward across the state throughout the day causing snow and mix over areas north and west of Greenville and Millinocket during the morning to change to mix and possibly all rain during the afternoon while the rest of the state sees all rain throughout the day. Temperatures today will top off in the mid-30s to mid-40s for highs, warmest along the coast. The steadiest and heaviest precipitation will move to our north and east later tonight and early Thursday morning as low pressure begins to weaken and moves northward through New England.

Powerful Nor’Easter Will Impact the State Tonight & Tomorrow

Jessica Conley

Updated 2 weeks ago

 

WINTER STORM WARNINGS and WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES in effect for the overnight hours tonight and through the daytime hours of tomorrow.

 

A powerful Nor’Easter will slowly move up the northeast coastline which will bring a mix of heavy precipitation to the area. Heavy, wet snow is expected in northern and western portions of the state (especially in the mountain and higher elevations) with some snow and ice mixing in for Central Maine and rain mixing in along the coast and slightly inland too. Thinking power outages are likely in locations where heavy, wet snow and up to a half an inch of ice will coat branches. Winds are expected to pick up in intensity this evening as the low moves closer to our area. Winds will be from the northeast at 15 – 35 mph with higher gusts possible. This will help to bring down limbs/branches and lines too.
