Snow Developing This Morning, Becoming Steadier & Heavier This Afternoon

Updated 7 hours ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

Winter Storm Warnings remain in effect for today through much of Saturday. Low pressure is forecast to redevelop near Cape Cod during the day today and strengthen as it heads towards Nova Scotia. Light snow is expected to gradually spread from west to east across this morning through early afternoon and become steadier and heavier during the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will top off in the upper 20s to low 30s for most locales which means precipitation will fall as snow. However, coastal areas will be a bit warmer with highs reaching the mid and upper 30s which will allow some rain to mix in with the snow during the day then change back to all snow tonight as the atmosphere cools off. Snow will continue, heavy at times, tonight. Winds will increase tonight and could gust to 35-45 MPH resulting in areas of blowing and drifting snow.

Light Snow Today, with Heavier Snow & Wind Tonight

Chris Ewing

Updated 12 hours ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure approaching from the west will spread light snow across the state this morning. The initial storm will begin to die out over western New England this morning as a new storm begins to develop just east of Cape Cod. The new storm will quickly intensify later today as it slowly moves up into the Gulf of Maine. Light snow this morning will give way to steadier and heavier snow by this evening. Along the coastline the snow may briefly mix with, or change to, rain before changing back to snow, but the bulk of this storm looks like it’ll be snow.

Updated 1 day ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

High pressure will continue sliding through the area this afternoon. We’ll see plenty of sunshine and seasonable temperatures with highs topping off in the mid-20s to low 30s this afternoon. Low pressure over the Great Lakes region will continue to push towards the state tonight. As the low approaches, we’ll see increasing clouds during the night tonight with some light snow and snow showers moving into western and northwestern parts of the state. We’ll have a wide range in low temperatures tonight with lows in the mid-single numbers to around 10° north to the teens to near 20° closer to the coast.

Bright & Chilly Today, Snow Returns Friday

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 day ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

High pressure will approach and then cross New England today. The high will bring our region mostly sunny skies and a rather light breeze today as it moves through New England and then passes offshore towards evening. As the high departs off to our east tonight clouds ahead of our next storm system will begin to slip into Maine. The next storm system will be rather weak and moisture starved today, but will begin to grow stronger early Friday as upper level energy is injected into the storm system.

Quiet Day Thursday with Another Storm for Friday

Jessica Conley

Updated 2 days ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

The powerful nor’easter that brought all the wind and snow to New England yesterday into early today continues to slowly lift northeast through the Canadian Maritimes. As the storm departs to the northeast tonight, the winds across Maine will continue to die off and the sky will become mostly clear. The combination of a deep snowpack, clearing skies, and a diminishing wind, will allow temps to dip down to below zero over much of the Pine Tree State by tomorrow morning.

Lingering Snow Ending, Brightening Skies This Afternoon

Todd Simcox

Updated 2 days ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

As of noontime there were still a few areas of light snow and snow showers scattered across northern and eastern Maine. These will continue to wind down as the storm pulls away from the area. The winds will continue to diminish this afternoon so blowing and drifting will become less and less of a problem. Skies will gradually clear out from west to east across the state as high pressure builds in from the west this afternoon. Temperatures will be chilly with highs in the mid-teens to low 20s. Skies will be clear tonight and temperatures will be very cold with lows dropping back to a couple degrees either side of 0°.

Snow, Wind & Cold Today

Jessica Conley

Updated 3 days ago

**Blizzard Warnings and Winter Storm Warnings in effect for the entire state for Today into Wednesday.**

Snow will spread northward across the state this morning. Snowfall rates could be 1-2″ per hour at times, possibly even heavier, this morning and into the afternoon and evening, especially in the areas that are under the blizzard warning. The only redeeming quality of the storm for non snow lovers is that it’ll be a very light and fluffy snow. We’re talking snow to liquid ratios of 12″:1″ possibly up to 15″:1″. Blowing and drifting will be a huge issue with this system as well. Winds could gust as high as 35-40 mph inland and up to 55 mph at the coast during the day today. I urge you to be prepared for power outages if you live along the coast or in any area prone to them. Temperatures for the entire event stay well below freezing, mainly in the upper teen and low 20s during the day today. Snow will to fall steadily overnight tonight into Wednesday morning, before ending by noon time or so for most locales.

Snowy, Windy & Cold Today, Brightening Skies Wednesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 3 days ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

Strong low pressure will gradually move towards Nova Scotia this afternoon and evening. Snow will continue, falling heavily at times through the afternoon and evening. North/northeast winds will remain very strong, averaging 20-30 MPH with gusts to 55-65 MPH possible along the coast and gusts to 35-45 MPH possible inland. Temperatures will only top off in the upper single numbers to mid-teens for most spots so with the gusty north/northeast winds factored in, we’ll see wind chills near or below 0° all day. Snow will continue to fall tonight although it will lighten up as the night wears on.

High pressure will build through the area today giving us partly to mostly sunny skies to start the work week. Colder air moved in during the day yesterday and will make for a chilly day today as highs only reach the teens for most locales. High pressure will move to our east tonight allowing clouds to continue to increase across the state. Snow will begin to move into areas mainly south of Dover-Foxcroft and Lincoln after midnight with areas further north staying dry during the nighttime hours.

Significant Winter Storm on the Way

Jessica Conley

Updated 6 days ago

**Significant winter storm on the way for today into early Sunday with heavy snowfall and windy conditions expected. Winter Storm Warning and Winter Weather Advisories are in effect. **

 

A second low pressure system is currently moving into the state, from southwest to northeast.  The storm will start to move into our area during the late morning/early afternoon hours. We could see some rain mix in along the immediate coast, but other than that, this will be a primarily snow even. The snow will have a sharp cutoff to for who gets 8-10” and who get’s nothing. A matter of a shift either west or east by just 10 miles will bring lots of additional, or much less, snow accumulation to an area. The snow will become steady by the late afternoon and will be heaviest in far eastern areas of the state, especially along the Downeast Coast where I believe rain will quickly switch over to snow with precip rates so high (over an inch an hour is possible at times in the evening or late night).

Fair & Chilly Today, Snow Possible Late Saturday

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 week ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The ridge of high pressure that has produced the bright and chilly conditions across Maine the past few days will continue to control the weather across our region today. As the high slowly slips off to our east this morning, the wind will turn into the southwest and slighter milder air will slip north into our region for the end of the workweek. High temps across Maine today will range from the low 20s north to near freezing along the coastline. A weak trough aloft along with an approaching warm front from the west may kick off a few flurries or snow showers across northern parts of the Pine Tree State later today into early Saturday.

Fair & Seasonably Cold Today & Friday

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 week ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The ridge of high pressure that brought the bright and cold weather to Maine today will continue to control the conditions across our region the next few days. As the high drifts towards northern New England today, it will force a series of small storms to move east from the Ohio River Valley to off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline. The storms will bring some light snow as far north as the southern New England coastline, but produce just a few clouds in our region. Temperatures today will reach the 20s for highs.

Mostly Sunny & Seasonably Cold Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 week ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will continue to bring dry and cold weather to Maine today. Under mostly sunny skies today, the temps will warm to the teens north and low to mid 20s south. A storm moving off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline later tonight and early Thursday will remain far enough offshore to have much impact on our weather as it heads northeast over the Western Atlantic Thursday. The storm will likely bring a bit more cloud cover to our region Thursday, but it appears any snow associated with the storm will remain offshore.
