We’ll see some foggy conditions overnight with temps staying pretty comfortable. It’ll be partly to mostly cloudy for Monday with highs in the 40s again. Watch out for that pesky cold front though; you already know what that thing can do. Overnight lows Monday into Tuesday fall back into the teens with some single digit reading north.

Bright & Cold Saturday

Chris Ewing

Updated 3 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A bit of upper level energy sliding east through the Northeast brought variably cloudy skies and a few flurries to Maine Friday but otherwise the weather was quiet and cold as high temps across most our region held in the 20s.  The ridge of high pressure that brought the fair and cold conditions to our region Friday will continue to move east towards the Mid-Atlantic Coastline and bring another bright and cold day to Maine Saturday. High temps Saturday will range from the high teens across northernmost Maine to the 20s elsewhere across the state.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

 

An upper level disturbance moving through the state today may produce a few flurries in spots but most areas should stay dry. We’ll see variably cloudy skies and chilly temperatures this afternoon with highs only in the 20s so dress warmly if you’re headed out to do some shopping. Skies will be clear to partly cloudy tonight as high pressure begins to build into the area. With mainly clear skies, light winds and the fresh snowpack, we’ll have good radiational cooling which will lead to very cold temperatures tonight with lows in the single numbers for most inland locales while coastal areas bottom out in the lower teens.

High temps today will only reach the 20s across most of the Pine Tree State, with far northern areas likely holding in the upper teens, so if you going out to shop make sure you bundle up.

Snow Ending Early Then Mostly Cloudy & Chilly Today, Colder Temps Friday

Todd Simcox

Updated 4 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Snow will taper to snow showers this morning as low pressure moves away from the state. Snow showers will then wind down by around noontime for most locales. As a result, road conditions will improve as the morning progresses. Skies will remain cloudy for the remainder of our Thanksgiving Day with temperatures only reaching the upper 20s to mid-30s for highs. We’ll see variably cloudy skies for the night tonight with very cold temperatures as lows dip down to the upper single numbers to mid-teens.

Heavy Snow Ending This Morning

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Snow will taper off early this morning. By this point, snowfall totals will likely range for 5″-10″ along the immediate coast to 6″-12″ though much of interior Maine. There may be a pocket or two of even high snowfall totals likely ranging up to 15″, with the area from Bangor up through Lincoln on east to Danforth and then down to Princeton likely seeing the heaviest amounts. North and west of Moosehead Lake and Baxter State Park snowfall amounts will be somewhat lighter due to less total precipitation, but will still likely reach a range of 5″-10″.

Snow & Mix Developing This Afternoon, Cloudy & Chilly Thanksgiving Day

Todd Simcox

Updated 4 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

As of noontime, low pressure was moving out of the Carolinas and will continue on a northeast track towards southern Nova Scotia. Precipitation will devleop from southwest to northeast across the state this afternoon. Some areas, especially south of Dover-Foxcroft and Lincoln, will see precipitation start as mix or even plain rain while areas further north start as all snow. The airmass will cool down as the afternoon and evening progress so areas that see rain or mix at the onset will see the precipitation changeover to all snow fairly quickly and the bulk of the storm is expected to be in the form of snow. Road conditions will deteriorate this afternoon and evening as the precipitation spreads across the state and picks up in intensity. Snow will continue heavily at times tonight, possibly mixing with some sleet along the coastline. Winds will pick up tonight as well with north/northwest winds averaging 15-25 MPH which could result in some scattered power outages.

Mix to Snow This Afternoon, Heavy at Times Tonight

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure near the Carolinas this morning is expected to move northward along the east coast and intensify today. This new storm will begin to spread a mixture of rain and snow across our region later this morning and afternoon from southwest to northeast. Precipitation will begin to pull cold air from aloft down towards the surface with the bulk of the precipitation becoming snow later in the afternoon, first over the interior then eventually along the coastline during the evening hours. The snow will become heavy at time during the evening hours before tapering off late at night as the storm moves through the Gulf of Maine. Along with the heavy snow will be an increasing north/northeast wind which at times could gust to near 30 mph along the coastline. The combination of the snow and wind will make conditions very difficult for travelers late this afternoon through tonight.

Mild & Dry Today, Storm Moves in for Wednesday & Thanksgiving

Jessica Conley

Updated 4 weeks ago

We’ll see temperatures remaining mild for today with a mix of sun and clouds and breezy conditions. Things become cooler by Wednesday after a second cold front moves though. Things then get very interesting for Wednesday night into Thanksgiving Day. We’ll see increasing clouds Wednesday morning before snow showers develop Wednesday afternoon from south to north. Snow will continue Wednesday night and intensify overnight. The track of the low will determine the amount and type of precipitation. It looks like we could see some significant snowfall from this storm making travel difficult especially Wednesday evening and Thanksgiving morning. Winds will become gusty with this storm.
By late Thursday the storm clears out. We’ll see much cooler air in the wake of the storm and things stay chilly for Friday and Saturday. A few snow showers are possible during the day on Friday,

Rainy Today, But Better Tuesday, & An Analysis Of The Thanksgiving Day Possibilities

Jessica Conley

Updated 4 weeks ago

Today’s highs will be mild as we get into the warm sector (behind the warm front but in front of the cold front) of the first storm system of the week. Highs could top out in the mid to upper 50s for many. It will be difficult to enjoy the warmer temps since we’ll be dealing with rain all day. Rain will taper to showers during the afternoon hours. It’ll be breezy too, with winds from the southeast at 10 – 15 mph. Tuesday will be slightly cooler, but still above normal, with highs in the mid to upper 40s and low 50s and partly sunny skies.

Partly Sunny, Breezy & Cold Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

Cold high pressure will slide towards the Northeast today and Saturday with high temps running several degrees below normal both days despite partly sunny skies. High temps will range from the mid 20s to low 30s today and only a degree or two milder for Saturday. Temps will turn milder Sunday as the high drifts off to our southeast and a southwest breeze develops all across New England. A little light mixed precipitation may develop later Saturday night and early Sunday as the milder air begins to slide up into our region, with the best chance of seeing any light mixed precipitation or rain being found over northern parts of Maine. A storm will likely bring rain to Maine Monday into very early Tuesday as it tracks north well up to the west of New England. A weakening cold front will sweep the rain showers out to sea later Tuesday, with temps slowly falling back to more seasonable levels by Wednesday.

Few Snow Showers Today then Cold & Dry Friday

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

An upper level disturbance will pass through the area today bringing some clouds and scattered snow showers to our region. Most of Maine will see little if any accumulation of snow from this clipper system, but over Downeast parts of the state moisture working into the region from the ocean may allow a coating to an inch or so in spots. High temps today will range from the low 30s north to the low 40s south. As the trough moves by to our north late today, an arctic cold front will sweep offshore and a fresh batch of unseasonably cold air will ride back into the Northeast on a brisk northwest breeze.
