Light Snow Today, Very Cold Overnight & Tomorrow

Jessica Conley

Updated 3 weeks ago

We’ll see snow moving into the region this morning. Snow will generally be light. It’s not looking like much in the way of accumulation. I’m thinking about 1-3” across the state. Things taper off in the early evening. Temps will be in the upper 20s and low to mid 30s today. Could see a few snow squalls late in the day too.

Light Snow For Most Monday

Jessica Conley

Updated 3 weeks ago

We’ll have cloudy skies tonight due to a low pressure system moving into the area, so temps stay a bit more comfy (in the teens for most and single digits north) overnight too. Light snow develops early Monday morning (before daybreak) due to the low and cold front moving through the region. Snow could be steady at times, but it’s not looking like much in the way of accumulation. I’m thinking about 1-3” across the state. Could see a bit of mixing along the immediate coastline for a short time in the afternoon. Things taper off Monday in the late afternoon and early evening. Temps will be in the upper 20s and low to mid 30s Monday. Could see a few snow squalls late in the day Monday too.

Sunny and Seasonable Today, Some Snow Tomorrow

Jessica Conley

Updated 3 weeks ago

A fairly quiet pattern setting up for this upcoming week with the exception of a disturbance Monday.

 

After a chilly start today, we’ll be able to somewhat warm up, into the 20s. We’ll have mostly sunny skies due to an area of high pressure that’s currently to our southwest shifting to the east and setting up a nice ridge of high pressure for us. Clouds increase by tomorrow evening  due to a low pressure system moving into the area, so temps stay a bit more comfy (in the teens for most and single digits north) overnight into Monday.

Dry & Cold This Weekend

Chris Ewing

Updated 3 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The small storm system that brought the mostly light snow to much of New England Friday morning continues to slide northeast through the Canadian Maritimes. As a trailing arctic cold front slips off the New England coastline much colder air will filter back into New England for today. Despite a fair amount of sunshine the high temps across Maine will range from the single numbers north and west of Greenville and Millinocket to the teens to low 20s elsewhere across the state. Temperatures Sunday will moderate just a little bit as the arctic high moves offshore and a southerly breeze develops here.

Period of Light Snow Friday

Chris Ewing

Updated 3 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The ridge of arctic high pressure that brought the bitterly cold air to New England last night and today will slip east off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline this evening. The combination of a southwest breeze on the backside of the high and increasing clouds ahead of a fast moving clipper type storm will cause temps to slowly rise overnight. Temps late tonight will range from the single numbers across far northern Maine to the low 20s along our coastline.

Dangerously Cold Later Tonight & Thursday!

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

As an arctic cold front sweeps east through Maine plan on some scattered flurries, snow showers and possibly even a few widely scattered snow squalls this evening. As the front moves off to the east of Maine this evening any leftover flurries and squalls will come to an end across our region and the skies will begin to clear out. A fresh shot of arctic air will spill into Maine later tonight as temps tumble well below zero after midnight and that along with a gusty wind will drive the wind chill values to between -20 and -45 by daybreak tomorrow. This is a dangerously cold airmass so if you must venture out make sure you are properly dressed and that you cover all exposed skin. Also make sure the pets stay indoors tonight and tomorrow.

More Arctic Air On The Way…

Todd Simcox

Updated 4 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

A couple weak areas of low pressure will affect our weather today. The first is a storm just offshore will bring some snow showers to mainly coastal and Downeast areas throughout the day. The second area of low pressure located over southern Quebec will drag a cold front across the state this afternoon into this evening and will bring snow showers to the rest of the state and possibly some heavier snow squalls. Accumulations of a dusting to an inch or two will be possible in most locations by later today with coastal areas possibly seeing a bit more. Temperatures will be a bit better today with highs reaching the teens to around 20° in most spots. Arctic air will return to the state tonight behind the departing cold front. Snow showers will taper off this evening followed by partial clearing late. Temperatures will bottom out in the teens and 20s below zero from Greenville to Millinocket northward and in the single numbers and teens below zero elsewhere. Northwest winds will pick up tonight too and will give us wind chills ranging from -20° to -50° at times.

Snow Showers Today, Blustery & Frigid Thursday

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The arctic airmass currently bringing bitterly cold temps to our region will briefly moderate a little bit tonight and Wednesday as lows tonight hold between -8 and +8, with high temps tomorrow reaching the teens to low 20s across much of our area. During tomorrow a small storm system will slip through the eastern Gulf of Maine while at the same time an approaching trough aloft over southern Canada will slip into the Northeast. The two weather systems will combine to bring a period of snow showers to much of Maine late tonight through early tomorrow evening. Most of Maine will only pick up a dusting to a couple of inches tomorrow, but the small storm in the Gulf of Maine might enhance the snowfall over coastal sections of Downeast Maine, with a few locals possibly picking up between 2 to 4” by the time the snow showers taper off tomorrow evening.

Clouds will continue to spread across the state this afternoon as low pressure approaches from the west. Temperatures will be very cold with highs near or below zero north and single numbers to around 10° above zero elsewhere. Low pressure approaching from the west and another area of low pressure passing to our south will bring us some snow showers during the overnight tonight.

Bitterly Cold Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Arctic high pressure slipping off the southern New England coastline will bring a bright and very cold start to today. High temps today will run in the single numbers to low teens across much of Maine, with far northern parts of the state remaining below zero all day long. As the high moves offshore clouds ahead of a fast moving moisture starved storm system will push into New England this afternoon. The small storm will move into the eastern Gulf of Maine Wednesday morning and that along with an approaching trough aloft from the west will bring numerous snow showers to our region late tonight and part of Wednesday. At this time it appears any snowfall Wednesday across our region will range from a dusting to a few inches.

Snow, Sleet, Freezing Rain, & Rain Possible Tonight Into Tomorrow, Then Cold, Very Cold

Jessica Conley

Updated 4 weeks ago

Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories are in place through the overnight hours and into Sunday.

 

We’ll see precip move in tonight, starting in the form of snow. Before the change over I’m forecasting that we’ll have snowfall totals in the Bangor Area around 4”, totals in Bar Harbor around 3”, Waterville and Augusta around 5”, Millinocket around 5”, Greenville around 5”, and Houlton around 5”. Things start to change over to sleet and freezing rain very early tomorrow morning (3-6am depending on where you are) before all precip becomes rain by late tomorrow morning. Travel will become difficult tonight and during the morning hours tomorrow due to snow and icing. (I know, I’m full of good news.)

Dry & Cold Today, with a Wintry Mix Sunday

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A ridge of arctic high pressure currently centered north of the Great Lakes will build east and bring dry and very cold conditions to Maine through the evening hours. The arctic high will produce bright but very cold conditions in our region tomorrow as it works east across southern Quebec, with high temps across Maine running in the teens and low 20s south, but only reaching the single numbers north of Greenville and Millinocket. Clouds will be on the increase across Maine later in the afternoon Saturday as the high moves into the Canadian Maritimes and an intensifying storm moves up into the Ohio River Valley.

Chilly Today & Frigid Saturday

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

A small storm system moving east across central Quebec this morning will drag a strong arctic cold front through our region. The front will slip across the state this morning. The front will produce scattered snow showers and snow squalls across mainly northern parts of our region as it moves through. Once the front slips offshore a much colder airmass will begin to push back into northern New England later today on a brisk northwest breeze. Strong arctic high pressure moving east across southern Ontario will bring clear and frigid conditions to Maine tonight. The arctic high will produce bright but very cold conditions in our region Saturday as it works east across southern Quebec.
