Staying Cold, Few Snow Showers Tomorrow Night

Jessica Conley

Updated 5 months ago

It looks like the cold temps will be staying with us through the next several days. It’ll actually become even colder (think single digits and teens for highs!) as we head into the start of the work week after a cold front moves through the area on Sunday.  Our next shot at some snow comes tomorrow night. This will be very light and mostly in the form of a few snow showers in the late evening and through the overnight hours. Not expecting much, if anything, in the way of accumulation; some spots may see a coating or so, but that’s about it. It could be just enough to make some roads a little slick for the early morning hours on Sunday since the ground and roads are frozen solid.

Sunny, Breezy & Cold Today, PM Snow Showers Saturday

Todd Simcox

Updated 5 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Sunshine returns to our forecast today as high pressure builds into the area. Temperatures remain well below average with highs in the mid-teens to low 20s for highs. High pressure building in from the west and low pressure to our east will make for a breezy day today. Northwest winds will average 10-20 MPH with gusts to 25 MPH at times which will make for wind chills near or below 0°.

Bright, Breezy & Cold Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The cold weather pattern will continue across Maine right through much of next week. High pressure will bring bright, breezy and cold weather to Maine today and once again high temps will range from the teens north to low 20s south. A slightly stronger storm will enter the Northeast later Saturday and will likely bring a somewhat steadier band of light snow to our area later in the day into early Sunday morning as the storms trailing cold front slowly works southeast through our region. A southerly wind ahead of the cold front will allow temps to warm into the 20s Saturday. Approaching high pressure will produce fair and cold weather across the Northeast later Sunday. Once the cold front moves to our south a fresh shot of arctic air will spread back into the northeast for later Sunday and the first half of next week. Another storm will ride northeast along a stalled front near the Southern New England Coastline early next week, but at this point in time it is too difficult to tell if the storm will move close enough to Maine to produce some snow in our region later Monday and early Tuesday.

Snow Showers Likely This Afternoon & Evening, Sunny & Cold Friday

Todd Simcox

Updated 5 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

We have a carbon copy of Wednesday’s forecast on tap for today. Skies will be variably cloudy this afternoon as another weak disturbance approaches from the Great Lakes region and moves through the state during the afternoon and evening hours. As the disturbance moves through, we’ll see more snow showers developing with accumulations of a dusting to 1” possible in spots by later in the evening. Temperatures today will top off in the mid-teens to low 20s for highs. Snow showers will wind down early tonight followed by clearing late. Lows won’t be quite as cold as they have the past few nights with temperatures tonight dropping to between -3° north to around +10° along the coast.

Cold, with More Snow Showers This Afternoon and Evening

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The temperatures across our region will remain well below normal during the last two days of February and the first several days of March. The cold front that brought snow showers to Maine earlier today has now moved offshore and skies have begun to clear back out. Once again temps tonight will fall below zero across most of our region as another arctic airmass builds back into the Northeast.

Cold, with More Afternoon Snow Showers Thursday

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The temperatures across our region will remain well below normal during the last two days of February and the first several days of March. A small and moisture starved storm currently crossing southern Quebec will drag a cold front across our Maine this evening. The front will continue to produce scattered snow showers through the evening hours, but the dry airmass currently over New England will limited any accumulation tonight to an inch or less. Once again temps tonight will fall below zero across most of our region as skies begin to clear out late.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A weak area of low pressure is forecast to move through the state this afternoon and evening bringing us some scattered snow showers with accumulations of a dusting to 1” possible in spots. Temperatures will continue below average today with highs in the mid-teens to mid-20s. Snow showers will move out early tonight as the disturbance moves to our east followed by clearing skies as a weak ridge of high pressure slides in. Temperatures will bottom out a couple degrees either side of 0° for nighttime lows.

Cold, with a Few Afternoon Snow Showers Wednesday

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The temperatures across our region will remain colder than normal during the rest of February and the first several days of March as the weather pattern across the Northeast features a series of disturbances aloft and corresponding small storm systems sliding east into New England from the Great Lakes Region. Each of the small storms will bring a round of snow showers to Maine as they cross our area, but moisture will be somewhat limited with each disturbance and only minor accumulations are expected in our area during the workweek. The first disturbance will cross New England later today, with a period of snow showers, mostly during the afternoon and evening hours, with the next small storm arriving in our region later Thursday, with another round of flurries and snow showers. Any accumulations over the next few days will likely range from a coating to about 2″.

Variably Cloudy & Cold Today, Snow Showers Likely Wednesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 5 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

An upper level low pressure system spinning over northern and eastern Canada combined with strong high pressure over the Midwest will usher colder into New England resulting in below average temperatures for the next several days. A few disturbances wrapping around the upper low are forecast to move through northern New England providing us with clouds and the chance for snow showers on their way through.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

We have a pretty quiet week ahead with no major storms in sight. The biggest headline in our forecast this week will be the return to colder, below average temperatures as high pressure slides southward out of Canada and into the central U.S. pushing much colder air into New England.

Cold for the Week, Snow Likely for Wednesday

Jessica Conley

Updated 5 months ago

Highs today will be between 10 and 15 degrees cooler than Sunday, making it to more seasonable levels. We’ll see partial sunshine today as well with a few clouds around as a low pushes by well of off the coast. By Tuesday, highs will only be able to warm into the 20s with partly sunny skies. Wednesday we’ll start with mostly cloudy skies then see some light snow developing in the evening as a low pressure system moves into the area. This does not look like a major snow event, but it does looks like most locations could see anywhere from a coating to three inches overnight. It’s still early, but of course, we’ll keep you updated. It’ll stay cold for Thursday with highs only in the teens and low 20s. Things look sunny for Friday as a high pressure system takes control of the weather in the Northeast.

Becoming Colder Monday, Chance for Snow Wednesday

Jessica Conley

Updated 5 months ago

We’ll have above normal temperatures for today but will see much cooler temperatures as we head into the start of the workweek. Today will be partly to mostly sunny because of a high pressure system to our south. We’ll have the chance for a few snow flurries as a cold front pushes though the area in the evening. High temps Monday will be between 10 and 15 degrees cooler than Sunday, making it to around seasonable levels. We’ll see partial sunshine Monday as well. By Tuesday, highs will only be able to warm into the 20s with mostly sunny skies. Wednesday we’ll start with a mix of sun and clouds then see increasing clouds with some light snow developing in the evening as a low pressure system moves into the area. This does not look like a major snow event, but it does looks like most locations could see anywhere from a coating to three inches overnight. It’s still early, but of course, we’ll keep you updated.

Partly Sunny & Mild Today

Jessica Conley

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

As high pressure builds into the Mid-Atlantic States, the weather across Maine Saturday will be partly sunny and somewhat milder than normal as high temps reach the mid 30s to low 40s. A cold front will bring a few flurries or snow showers to parts of Northern New England Sunday as it crosses the Northeast.  A cooler airmass will begin to filter back into New England as the cold front slowly slides offshore Sunday and a northwest breeze picks up. A series of cold fronts crossing the Northeast during the early to middle part of the workweek will usher progressively colder air the Northeast.

Partly Sunny & Mild Saturday then Slowly Cooling Sunday

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm moving along a cold front will bring a period of rain and mixed precipitation to our region this evening. From the Lincoln area on south and east most of the precipitation this evening will fall in the form of rain, but from the Dover-Foxcroft region on north and west precipitation will continue to fall as a combination of sleet, freezing rain, rain and a little snow, which will cause roads to remain a bit slippery. Skies will partially clear late tonight as the cold front slips off to our east and a drier airmass begins to filter into our region. The temps will fall below freezing across most of Maine late tonight and patchy black ice will likely form on the roadways.

Snow, Mix & Rain Today, Drier And Still Mild This Weekend

Todd Simcox

Updated 5 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure is forecast to pass to our west today. Precipitation has been fairly light thus far and will be scattered about the state through the early-mid afternoon hours. Expect scattered snow showers and mixed precipitation over the northern half of the state with scattered rain showers elsewhere. Precipitation will become steadier later this afternoon and evening as a cold front approaches and eventually moves through the state. Roads could still be slippery this afternoon and evening mainly over northern areas where precipitation will be falling as snow and/or a mix of sleet and freezing rain. Highs today are expected to top off in the 30s to around 40° this afternoon. Precipitation will move out during the night tonight as the cold front moves to our east which will then be followed by drier weather for the weekend. Temperatures will drop back to near or a bit below 32° so we could see any lingering moisture on the roads refreezing so be careful if you have travel plans tonight.

Snow, Mix & Rain Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Clouds associated with an approaching warm front will continue to thicken this morning. The warm front is part of a rather strong storm system that will be lifting north through the Great Lakes Region today. The warm front will bring a wintry mix of precipitation to Maine today. As the warm front slowly lifts north through Maine today, most of the mixed precipitation across Maine will change to rain later this morning over southern and coastal Maine, with central parts of the state seeing the icy mix continuing into the mid to late afternoon before it changes to all rain. Far northern parts of Maine will likely see snow change to sleet and freezing rain later in the afternoon, but sub-freezing surface temps will likely keep the precipitation from changing to plain rain north and west of the Moosehead Lake and Baxter State Park regions. A trailing cold front will bring another round of mostly rain showers to our region this evening. Snow and sleet accumulations will generally range from under 1″ over coastal Maine, with 1 to 3″ likely piling up well inland and up north, with a few spots across northern most Maine possibly seeing up to 4″.

Sunny & Pleasant Today, Snow, Mix & Rain Likely Friday

Todd Simcox

Updated 5 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Sunshine returns to our forecast today as high pressure slides into New England. Temperatures will be above average with highs topping off in the mid-30s to mid-40s this afternoon. A lot of the snow that we received late yesterday and last night will just melt away with the help of the sun and mild temperatures. Clouds will roll back into the state during the night tonight as low pressure approaches from the Great Lakes region. There may be some light snow or mixed precipitation moving in late tonight as well mainly for areas around Bangor points south and west.
