Updated 5 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Weak low pressure is forecast to pass just north of the state today, allowing milder air to move into the region and giving us some snow, mix and rain this afternoon. Plan on scattered mixed precipitation changing to rain north and scattered rain showers elsewhere for the rest of the day. Highs will top off in the upper 30s to low 40s this afternoon. Lingering showers will end early tonight as the storm pulls a cold front across the state. Rain showers may change back to snow over northern areas before ending. Lows will remain mild tonight with temperatures only bottoming out in the low to mid-30s for most spots. Skies will clear out after midnight tonight as high pressure starts moving into the region.

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

High pressure approaching New England from the west will bring mostly to partly sunny skies to our region today, but once again temps will run well below normal as a gusty northwest breeze continues to pull cold air south into New England from central Canada. High temps will hold in the mid 20s to low 30s despite a good deal of sunshine. The wind will gust to over 25 mph much of today, but as the high gets closer late in the day the wind will slowly diminish.

Increasing Clouds Today, Snow Likely Wednesday

Jessica Conley

Updated 5 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will slide east of the region this morning giving us a mostly sunny start to the day. Clouds will gradually increase this afternoon as low pressure approaches from the south. Low pressure is forecast to rapidly strengthen off the east coast of the U.S. today and Wednesday. The latest track takes the storm east of New England and towards the eastern tip of Nova Scotia. This will keep the bulk of the storm just offshore and just graze eastern Massachusetts as well as central and eastern Maine with moderate to heavy snow Downeast and lighter snow or snow showers elsewhere. Our weather will be quiet for Thursday as a ridge of high pressure slides into the area. Weak low pressure is forecast to pass just north of the state on Friday giving us some mixed rain and snow showers. Milder air will move in for the end of the week too with temps on Friday topping off in the upper 30s to mid-40s.

Todd Simcox

Updated 5 months ago

The storm that brought us snow, mix and rain Wednesday night and Thursday will continue to move away to our northeast today. Moisture wrapping around it will provide us with plenty of clouds today and the chance for a few snow showers as well. The best chance for snow showers will be over northern areas with mainly dry conditions expected elsewhere. Temperatures will be seasonable with highs in the mid-30s to around 40° this afternoon. We’ll see partly cloudy skies tonight with lows dropping back to the teens to around 20°

Variably Cloudy & Rather Blustery Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 months ago

From  the WABI-TV5  & CW Forecast Center:

 

Weak high pressure will produce generally fair and seasonably cool conditions here today, but a gusty west breeze will make it feel a bit colder than it actually is. A new storm will approach New England from the west tonight and then move east through northern New England Saturday. The new storm will bring another burst of snow and mixed precipitation to Maine Saturday, with most locales, likely picking up between 1 and 4″. Colder air will begin to spill back into New England Sunday on a gusty northwest breeze. Arctic high pressure will build south out of central Canada and bring another round of much colder than normal conditions to Maine Monday and Tuesday. A storm developing off the Southeastern U.S. Coastline early next week might bring more snow and wind to parts of New England next Wednesday into Thursday.

Snow, Mix & Rain Tapers Off This Morning, Drier Weather Friday

Todd Simcox

Updated 5 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

*** SPRING OFFICIALLY ARRIVES AT 12:57PM TODAY ***

 

Low pressure passing to our north will push an occluded front through the state today. Snow will continue over northern areas with some sleet and rain possible  early in the afternoon while areas further south will see mostly rain. Precipitation will be tapering off from southwest to northeast across the state  this afternoon. We may still see a few scattered rain or snow showers this afternoon otherwise plan on mostly cloudy skies for the second half of the day. Temperatures will reach the mid 30s to low 40s for highs today so a lot of the snow we’ve received will be melting throughout the day. Road conditions will improve as well. Skies will remain mostly cloudy during the night tonight with a few snow showers possible over northern and northwestern areas.

Snow, Mix & Rain Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure moving through Quebec today will bring us a combination of snow, mix and rain falling today, mostly during the morning hours. Southern and coastal Maine will see a quick coating to 2″ tonight and then a change to rain by daybreak but further inland the precipitation will remain snow for a longer period of time and thus from Augusta to Bangor on east towards Princeton a general 2 to 4″ will pile up before the change to rain. From Farmington to Dover-Foxcroft and Lincoln on north most towns will pick up between 4 and 8″ before the snow mixes with sleet and rain later today.

Increasing Clouds Today, Snow, Mix & Rain Arriving Tonight

Todd Simcox

Updated 5 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will slide east of our region today allowing clouds ahead of our next storm system to start moving into the state. We’ll start out with bright sunshine this morning but the sunshine is expected to fade behind increasing clouds as the day progresses. The daylight hours will remain dry so overall today looks like a good day just not as bright as the past few days. Temperatures will be a bit milder today with highs in the low to mid-30s this afternoon. Low pressure approaching from the Great Lakes tonight will push precipitation into the area especially near or after midnight. Precipitation will start as snow in most locations with snow and mix likely along the coast. Temperatures will range from the 20s to around 30° for nighttime lows.

Sun to Increasing Clouds Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The ridge of arctic high pressure that produced the unseasonably cold weather across our region since Sunday will slip east into the Canadian Maritimes today. As the high moves east of our region today clouds will begin to move into New England from the west. The clouds will be associated with a storm riding east through the Great Lakes region. The storm will bring a period of precipitation to our region later tonight and Thursday morning. Precipitation will start out as snow all across the Pine Tree State tonight, but with the storm sliding up to the west of New England early Thursday a developing southerly breeze will cause the snow to mix with or change to rain over southern and coastal Maine Thursday morning, while it remains mostly snow across the far north. Snowfall later tonight and Thursday morning will range from an inch or two along the coastline to 2 to 5″ across the north.
