Mixed Precip Tonight and Tomorrow Will Make Roads Slick

Jessica Conley

Updated 12 months ago

We’ll see increasing clouds and a mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow developing overnight as a low pressure system approaches the area. It’ll stay primarily as a freezing rain event overnight with ice accretion (accumulation) possibly up to a quarter of an inch in inland locations. This could make driving conditions slick throughout the overnight hours and into the morning commute. The coast will change over to all rain first in the morning hours of Monday, with everyone else changing over from south to north. Highs Monday will be able to reach into the 40s as the low passes to our west. Once the low moves to our north and east we’ll see much colder air behind the cold front which will move through in the late afternoon or early evening. We could see a few snow showers by Monday night. Overnight lows will plummet about 40 degrees in most spots.

Snow Moves Out This Morning, Milder Temps This Weekend

Todd Simcox

Updated 12 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Lingering light snow, mainly over Downeast areas, will continue to wind down early this afternoon followed by clearing skies as high pressure builds into the region. Another bitterly cold day today with highs only topping off a couple degrees either side of zero. With high pressure building in and low pressure moving out, the pressure gradient between the two will be fairly tight over Maine resulting in a gusty north/northwest wind today. Winds are expected to range from 10-20 MPH with gusts reaching 25-30 MPH which will produce wind chills between -15° to -35° throughout the day. Skies will start clear tonight followed by increasing clouds late as a warm front approaches from the west. Temperatures will be well below zero again tonight with lows ranging from the mid-20s below zero north to the single numbers below zero along the coast.

Blustery & Frigid Tonight & Friday, with Snow South

Chris Ewing

Updated 12 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The combination of strong arctic high pressure over southern Quebec and an intensifying storm off the Mid-Atlantic coastline will bring a strong and gusty wind to our area tonight and Friday. The gusty wind will combine with bitterly cold temps to produce dangerous wind chill values tonight and tomorrow morning of between -25 and -45. The high to the north will keep northern parts of Maine dry tonight and Friday, while the storm off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline will bring snow to Maine from about the Bangor region on south. Snowfall from Augusta to Bangor and over to Calais will likely range from 1 – 4” tonight and tomorrow morning, with areas further north receiving 1” or less. The Downeast Coastline will likely pick up between 2 to 5”, with the Mid-Coast of Maine picking up between 5 to 9”. The Portland region on south through Kittery will likely see between 8 and 12” accumulate by the time the snow tapers off tomorrow. Low temps tonight will range from -25 up north to about -5 along the coastline.
