Chris Ewing

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure will continue to bring snow, mixed precipitation and rain to the state today. We’ll see snow changing to a wintry mix in the mountains and higher elevations, mainly rain with some mix well inland and all rain closer to and along the coast. Highs will reach from the mid 30s to the mid 40s from north to south. Total snowfall accumulations will be in the area of 6-12″ to the north and in the mountains, with 3-6″ well inland around the foothills, with generally 2″ or less around Bangor and nothing closer to the coastline.

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.

Todd Simcox

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Precipitation will continue to spread north and east across the state this afternoon as low pressure approaches from the south. It looks like precipitation will start out as snow and mix over inland areas while coastal areas may see a brief mix at the onset otherwise should be mainly rain. Temperatures will be milder today with highs topping off in the 30s to around 40° in most locales. Precipitation will become steadier and heavier tonight through the day Wednesday. Expect snow to fall over northern areas tonight with snow and mix changing to mix and rain for inland locations and mainly rain falling over areas closer to the coast. Inland locations may see a period of freezing rain tonight as well with .10” to .50” of ice possible. Temperatures will be in the upper 20s to mid-30s for lows tonight.

Another Major Winter Storm on the Way

Jessica Conley

Updated 2 weeks ago

Low pressure will approach the area today. Temps today will be in the 30s and low 40s. The low brings a round of snow, mixed precip and rain this afternoon Wednesday. Things could get extremely slippery with snow and ice mixing in. The morning commute on Wednesday will be a tricky time for travel. Some precip changes to rain during the day Wednesday at the coast and inland to the greater Bangor area, while points north and west stay mainly snow, sleet , and freezing rain. Precip starts to wrap up on Wednesday night into the day Thursday. It will be windy during this time period too, with winds from the northeast at 15-25 mph gusting higher. Millinocket, Lincoln, Houlton, and over to Dover-Foxcroft and Greenville may see a solid 6 – 12″ plus ice on top of that. Bangor, Old Town, Orono, and down to Waterville and Augusta are looking at a few inches (2- 4) with some ice coating possible. We could be looking at numerous power outages during the day Wednesday too, especially if the ice accumulates and winds stay strong.
Thursday looks like more scattered snow showers or a light snow at times during the day and evening. By Friday we’ll see some sunshine returning with temps mostly in the upper 30s. Saturday becoming mainly sunny with highs in the 30s.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

 

Skies will be  partly to mostly sunny this afternoon as high pressure slides away from New England. High temperatures will top off in the mid-teens to mid-20s from north to south across the state, well below average for this time of year. Clouds will be on the increase tonight which will keep temperatures a bit milder tonight with lows mainly in the teens to low 20s.

Sunny & Cold Today, Another Storm Tuesday – Wednesday

Jessica Conley

Updated 2 weeks ago

High pressure will slide to our east today providing us with a sunny, but cold day with highs in the upper teens and low to mid 20s. By Tuesday though another low pressure system approaches the area. Temps warm up quite a bit Tuesday with highs in the upper 30s and low 40s.
The low brings another round of snow and mixed precip for late Tuesday into early Wednesday. You know what I like to say, don’t blame the messenger! Things could get extremely slippery with snow and ice mixing in. The morning commute on Wednesday being around the trickiest time for travel. Precip changes to rain during the day Wednesday at the coast and inland to the greater Bangor area, while points north and west stay mainly snow and ice. All of the precip wraps up on Wednesday night. Some locations in far northern Maine could pick up close to a foot of snow while Millinocket, Lincoln, and over to Dover-Foxcroft may see a solid 4-8″ plus ice on top of that. We could be looking at numerous power outages during the day Wednesday too, especially if the ice accumulates. Because of this mess, Winter Storm Watches have already been posted from the National Weather Service. I see them turning them into Warnings by tomorrow night. Thursday looks like more scattered snow showers or a light snow at times during the day and evening. By Friday we’ll see some sunshine returning with temps mostly in the upper 30s.

Sun to Increasing Clouds & Cold Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will bring Maine a mostly sunny and cold day today with high temps ranging from the upper teens north to the 20s south. The combination of a disturbance aloft and a slow moving front will bring increasing clouds to New England later this afternoon, with light precipitation likely developing later tonight and continuing through much of Saturday. At this point in time it appears the precipitation will start as snow tonight across most of Maine but as the atmosphere warms both at the surface and aloft Saturday the snow and mixed precipitation will become mostly rain south of Lincoln and Dover-Foxcroft. Northern parts of the state will likely remain cold enough to keep most of the precipitation falling as snow, sleet and freezing rain Saturday. Early estimates show 2″ or less of snow accumulating over southern and coastal parts of Maine before the change to rain, with a few to several inches likely piling up across the north and mountains.

Falling Temperatures & Breezy This Afternoon, Clear & Very Cold Tonight

Todd Simcox

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A cold front will move to our east this afternoon allowing colder air to filter into the region on a gusty northwest wind. Lingering snow showers will come to an end early this afternoon as the front moves out. Otherwise, we’ll see partly to mostly sunny skies for the rest of the day with temperatures falling into the teens and 20s by later in the day. High pressure will build directly overhead tonight giving us a clear and very cold night. Temperatures will drop to near or below 0° over the northern half of the state with lows in the single numbers to near 10° above zero elsewhere.

High pressure approaching from the west will bring partly to mostly sunny skies to our region today along with slightly cooler than normal temps as highs range from the mid 20s north to the low 30s south. A secondary cold front will slip off to our east later this afternoon and even colder air will build into New England for Friday. High pressure sitting on top of northern New England will bring clear and very cold conditions to the Pine Tree State tonight as lows dip below zero up north and drop into the single numbers across much of the rest of Maine.

Bright & Much Colder Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 3 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Strong high pressure building through the area will bring bright and cold conditions to Maine tomorrow as it slips east through southern Quebec, with high temps ranging from the teens north to the 20s south. As the high moves to our east tonight, a warm front will begin to push north towards New England. Milder air working north into our region will bring clouds to Maine this evening and with cold dense air located near the ground the mild air will overrun the cold air and that will cause light snow to develop across our region later at night. Along the coastline the snow will quickly turn to rain, while over the interior the snow will change to sleet and freezing rain and then plain rain as the warmer air works from aloft down to the ground. Temps Wednesday afternoon will range from the mid 30s north to the mid 40s south.

Cold Air Moves Back in Tonight

Jessica Conley

Updated 3 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Over the next several days the  yo-yo temperatures will continue across our region as temps fall tonight and remain cold tomorrow, before warming back up later Wednesday and then cooling off again beginning Thursday. After a very mild start to the day an arctic cold front crossed our region this afternoon and temps began to quickly drop behind it. A northerly wind on the east side of high pressure currently moving east across southern Ontario will usher a quick shot of arctic air into Maine tonight and tomorrow. Skies will be mostly clear tonight as the high approaches and by daybreak tomorrow the temps will range from the low single numbers over the north to the teens elsewhere across interior Maine, with temps close to 20 along the coastline. The high will bring bright and cold conditions to Maine tomorrow as it slips east through southern Quebec, with high temps ranging from the teens north to the 20s south.

Colder Air Returns Later Today, Sunny & Chilly Tuesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 3 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

 

A strong cold front will cross the state this afternoon bringing a much colder airmass back into the region. We may see a few widely scattered showers accompany the frontal passage otherwise the front should come through mainly dry. As the front moves to our east this afternoon, winds will turn to the northwest and begin to usher in a colder and drier airmass. As the colder air arrives, temperatures will slowly fall this afternoon and will be down into the upper 20s to mid-30s by late in the day. We’ll start to see clouds giving way to breaks of sunshine as the afternoon progresses as well. Skies will continue to clear out tonight and with light northwest winds expected, we’re in for a much colder night tonight. Low temperatures will drop to the upper single number to low teens north and mid-teens to near 20° further south towards the coast.
