From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

We’re into the second day of a prolonged stretch of cold weather that will include a brief “warm up” on Saturday followed by another round cold, arctic air later in the weekend and into next week. It looks like a pretty quiet stretch of weather too with no major storms heading our way during the next several days.

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A ridge of arctic high pressure located well west of New England has allowed bitterly cold air to spill into Maine today on a northwest breeze. The very cold airmass will remain across the Northeast for the next several days and temperatures will run well below normal.

Very Cold for the Rest of the Week

Jessica Conley

Updated 10 months ago

A high pressure ridge will bring us mostly sunny skies for today. By Wednesday, things turn eventful again as a low pressure system passes to our east. We will again have to monitor the exact track on this one as slight shifting west could result in some solid snowfall accumulation for much the state. Right now it looks like the eastern third of the state could see a couple inches through the day on Wednesday. Air will certainly be cold enough at the surface to support an all snow event. But again, we will have to keep an eye on it over the next two days.

Overnight we’ll see a few snow showers lingering in the area. By tomorrow morning skies will become partly sunny. A cold front moves through late tomorrow morning. This will usher in a very cold air mass for the rest of the week. Monday’s highs will be able to reach around seasonable levels before overnight lows drop below zero in most spots. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday will feature very frigid temps with highs only in the single digits and low teens.

We will see the snow in coastal locations continue through the overnight hours and wrap up early on Sunday morning. Looks like two to four inches of snow in most spots along the coast. It will be enough snow to make travel difficult, especially overnight tonight and very early Sunday morning. Please use caution. Highs on Sunday will warm into the 30s.

Few Rain/Snow Showers Today & Saturday, Colder Temps Ahead

Todd Simcox

Updated 10 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A series of upper level disturbances are forecast to come through New England today through the weekend. Each of the disturbances will provide us with clouds and the chance for some widely scattered snow or rain showers as they cross the region. Computer models are now showing a stronger area of low pressure developing over southern New England later tonight and early Saturday morning then tracking to the east/northeast through the Gulf of Maine later Saturday and Saturday night. This could bring us some steadier light snow and mixed precipitation especially for areas south of Greenville and Millinocket. We’ll wait to take a look at the new data coming in this morning and early this afternoon before fine tuning that part of the forecast but it looks like a couple inches of accumulation will be possible in many spots. Temperatures will remain above average today and Saturday with highs in the mid-30s to low 40s. Slightly cooler air will move into the state Sunday with highs in the upper 20s to mid-30s. Temperatures will continue to turn colder next week with highs in the single numbers and teens by midweek.

Scattered Rain & Snow Showers the Next Few Days

Chris Ewing

Updated 10 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Over the next several days a series of disturbances aloft will ride through the Northeast and keep skies mostly cloudy all across New England. Each upper level trough will bring the risk of scattered rain and snow showers to our area as they ride east through Maine, but at this time it appears each upper level trough will remain rather weak until they move northeast up into the Canadian Maritimes. Each trough will help to pull progressively chillier air into Maine as it crosses our region which will cause the bulk of the shower activity to become mostly snow statewide by later Saturday.

Lots of Clouds, Still Mild Next Few Days

Todd Simcox

Updated 10 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

An upper level disturbance passing through the area combined with low pressure passing to our east today will give us mostly cloudy skies for the day. We could also see a few snow showers or mixed rain/snow showers this afternoon as the disturbance moves through. Temperatures will remain above average with highs in the 30s to near 40° this afternoon. Clouds will stick around through the night tonight with a few snow showers as well. Temperatures will bottom out in the 20s for nighttime lows.

Slowly Cooling Temps, with Scattered Rain & Snow Showers

Chris Ewing

Updated 10 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The combination of an approaching upper level trough from the west and a weak storm developing to our southeast will keep skies here mostly cloudy today. The weak upper level trough will likely cause scattered light snow and rain showers to develop across our region today. Temps today will run a bit cooler than today, but will still average about 10 degrees above normal.

Sunshine & Mild Today, More Clouds & A Bit Cooler Thursday

Todd Simcox

Updated 10 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

After a very soggy day Tuesday, we’ll dry things out today. Wet roadways combined with temperatures dropping to around 32° this morning is leading to icy roads in many locations for the morning commute so use caution on the roads this morning and also be careful on your front steps, sidewalks, etc. A weak ridge of high pressure will build into the area today providing us with sunshine and another mild day with high temperatures reaching the mid-30s to mid-40s this afternoon. A weak area of low pressure will pass to our north and west tonight and could give northern and western parts of the state a few snow showers.

Rain Ending Tonight, Partly Sunny & Mild Wednesday

Chris Ewing

Updated 10 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The combination of an approaching cold front and a small storm riding up through the Gulf of Maine will continue to bring our region periods of rain this evening. The rain will taper off and end later tonight as the front slips offshore and the storm moves into Nova Scotia. Slightly colder air behind the front may allow the rain to briefly change to snow across northwestern parts of Maine before ending, but any snowfall accumulations up north will likely be 1” or less. Skies will partially clear late tonight, but lingering low level moisture could lead to areas of fog, and patchy black ice forming around daybreak. Weak high pressure will bring partly sunny skies and unseasonably mild weather to New England tomorrow, with high temps ranging from the upper 30s to mid 40s across our area.

Wet & Mild Today, Drier & Still Mild Wednesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 10 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A cold front will approach from the west today while low pressure approaches from the south. These two systems will combine to bring us a wet afternoon with periods of rain, the heaviest of which will fall over  Downeast locations. Temperatures are warm enough so that precipitation will be in the form of just plain rain. However, with the cold front coming in, cooler air will start moving into the mid-levels of the atmosphere this afternoon which may allow some snow to mix in with the rain later this afternoon for northern and western parts of the state. Rain and any mix will come to an end from west to east tonight followed by partial clearing late. Temperatures will drop back to the mid-20s to low 30s tonight so icy roads will be possible.

Patchy Light Freezing Rain & Rain Late Tonight

Chris Ewing

Updated 10 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A front approaching New England from the west will bring increasing clouds to Maine this evening, with a bit of light rain and freezing rain possibly developing late. The best chance of seeing the light rain and freezing rain tonight will be over northern and western parts of Maine. Temps tonight will remain very mild for this time of year as lows hold in the mid 20s to mid 30s, with the coolest temps occurring in the valleys north and west of the Bangor region.

Sunny & Pleasant Today, Icy Mix & Rain Arriving Tonight

Todd Simcox

Updated 10 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Partly to mostly sunny skies will prevail for the rest of the day with well above average temperatures as highs top off in the mid-30s to mid-40s from north to south across the state. Skies will turn cloudy tonight as a cold front approaches from the west followed by light precipitation moving especially after midnight. Temperatures will need to be watched tonight for precipitation types. Precipitation will likely fall as freezing rain especially areas from Dover-Foxcroft to Lincoln north and west where temperatures will drop to near or just a little below 32°. Temperatures elsewhere will be a few degrees warmer with lows in the mid to upper 30s so precipitation is expected to be plain rain but with the colder ground we could still see some icy spots so use caution if you have travel plans tonight or early tomorrow.

Mild & Sunny Monday, Rainy Tuesday

Jessica Conley

Updated 11 months ago

 

Temperatures cool off overnight into the upper teens and 20s with partly cloudy skies. As we head into tomorrow a high pressure ridge moves into the area. That will keep skies mostly sunny though the day. We’ll have mild temps as well. By Tuesday a low moves to our north and swings a cold front through early. Then a weak low will develop in the Gulf of Maine. That will cause some rain showers in the area during the day. We could see some mixed precip in there as well, especially north. Far Northern Maine could also see some snow showers. It looks like the precip will start in the mid morning and go until the evening. Total precipitation looks to be around a quarter of an inch.
