From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure is forecast to pass to our west today. Precipitation has been fairly light thus far and will be scattered about the state through the early-mid afternoon hours. Expect scattered snow showers and mixed precipitation over the northern half of the state with scattered rain showers elsewhere. Precipitation will become steadier later this afternoon and evening as a cold front approaches and eventually moves through the state. Roads could still be slippery this afternoon and evening mainly over northern areas where precipitation will be falling as snow and/or a mix of sleet and freezing rain. Highs today are expected to top off in the 30s to around 40° this afternoon. Precipitation will move out during the night tonight as the cold front moves to our east which will then be followed by drier weather for the weekend. Temperatures will drop back to near or a bit below 32° so we could see any lingering moisture on the roads refreezing so be careful if you have travel plans tonight.

Snow, Mix & Rain Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Clouds associated with an approaching warm front will continue to thicken this morning. The warm front is part of a rather strong storm system that will be lifting north through the Great Lakes Region today. The warm front will bring a wintry mix of precipitation to Maine today. As the warm front slowly lifts north through Maine today, most of the mixed precipitation across Maine will change to rain later this morning over southern and coastal Maine, with central parts of the state seeing the icy mix continuing into the mid to late afternoon before it changes to all rain. Far northern parts of Maine will likely see snow change to sleet and freezing rain later in the afternoon, but sub-freezing surface temps will likely keep the precipitation from changing to plain rain north and west of the Moosehead Lake and Baxter State Park regions. A trailing cold front will bring another round of mostly rain showers to our region this evening. Snow and sleet accumulations will generally range from under 1″ over coastal Maine, with 1 to 3″ likely piling up well inland and up north, with a few spots across northern most Maine possibly seeing up to 4″.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Sunshine returns to our forecast today as high pressure slides into New England. Temperatures will be above average with highs topping off in the mid-30s to mid-40s this afternoon. A lot of the snow that we received late yesterday and last night will just melt away with the help of the sun and mild temperatures. Clouds will roll back into the state during the night tonight as low pressure approaches from the Great Lakes region. There may be some light snow or mixed precipitation moving in late tonight as well mainly for areas around Bangor points south and west.

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will bring brighter and milder weather to our region today with high temps reaching the mid 30s to low 40s from north to south. The high will move offshore tonight and clouds ahead of a warm front will begin to push back into the Pine Tree State. The warm front will be associated with a rather strong storm system lifting north through the Great Lakes Region Friday. The warm front will bring a wintry mix of precipitation to Maine later tonight into the morning hours on Friday. Most of the mixed precipitation across Maine will change to rain later Friday morning and afternoon from south to north as the warm front lifts north through the state. A trailing cold front will bring another round of mostly rain showers to our region later in the afternoon and evening. Cooler air will slowly begin to filter back into New England over the weekend as the cold front slides offshore later Friday night and a northwest breeze picks up.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Clouds will continue to increase this afternoon as our next storm takes shape and approaches the region. A weak area of low pressure is forecast to pass through the Gulf of Maine tonight bringing us another round of accumulating snow for the nighttime hours. As the storm approaches, we’ll see a few snow showers developing this afternoon. Temperatures will be milder today with highs in the 30s so with temperatures expected to be near or a little above freezing, some of the snow showers could mix with rain especially along the coast. Steadier snow will spread across the state this evening, the heaviest of which will fall along and south of a line from Vanceboro to Dover-Foxcroft to Rumford. Snow could mix with some sleet along the coast otherwise precipitation is expected to fall as all snow. Snow will taper off from west to east after midnight as low pressure moves to our east. By late tonight, snowfall accumulations will range from 2”-5” from Bangor through all of Hancock and Washington Counties while the rest of the state will see accumulations of about 1″-3″.

More Accumulating Snow Arriving Tonight

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 months ago

A weak ridge of high pressure will bring fair skies to Maine this morning, but another disturbance aloft approaching New England from the west will likely bring a small storm to the Gulf of Maine by this evening. Additional snowfall is expected mainly during the night tonight with the heaviest accumulations occurring closer to the coast. Snow will start later in the day and continue into the evening. High pressure will bring brighter and milder weather to our region Thursday, with a warm front likely producing some rain showers in much of Maine Friday along with milder than normal temps. The rain may start as an icy mix, especially away from the coastline, if the precipitation arrives before the milder air arrives. Cooler air will begin to filter back into New England over the weekend as a cold front slips through our region later Friday night and Saturday morning.

Snow & Wind Later Today into Early Sunday

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

As one storm departs another storm approaches our region. The new storm system will develop east of the Mid-Atlantic Coastline today and then rapidly intensify as it moves northeast later in the day. As the storm moves northeast Saturday clouds will thicken across Maine, with snow showers developing later in the afternoon. The snow showers will turn into a steadier snow during the evening hours as the storm moves up into the southern Gulf of Maine and at the same time the wind will begin to ramp up. The snow will become heavy at times Saturday night and the wind will gust to over 30 mph as the storm moves through the Gulf of Maine and then up into southern Nova Scotia Sunday morning. Eastern parts of New England will be closest to the storm and thus receive the heaviest snow and strongest wind as the storm rides up to our east, with near blizzard conditions possible Saturday night over Downeast Maine. The exact track of the storm will determine snowfall across our region, with a track further east producing less snow and a track west of current projections producing even more snow than is currently forecasted. The current thinking is that far western Maine will receive between 2 to 5”, with 4 to 9” just west of the Bangor region. From Lincoln to Bangor and on south through the Mid-Coast of Maine 8 to 16”+ will likely pile up, with Downeast Maine likely seeing a foot or more new snow by the time the storm tapers off Sunday morning.

Windy, Heavy Snow & Mixed Precipitation Tonight & Friday Morning

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm system currently intensifying rapidly along the Mid-Atlantic Coastline will move northeast tonight and be located just to the east of the Mid-Coast of Maine tomorrow morning. The track of the storm will bring significant precipitation to our region tonight and tomorrow morning before it tapers off from southwest to northeast later in the day. The storm will bring snow heavy at times to all of Maine during the evening hours, but as the night moves along enough mild air will work into coastal regions to cause the snow to change to mostly rain and some mix. Over interior southern and central Maine the snow will likely mix with sleet and freezing for a period of time later tonight into early Friday morning, while the north and mountains stay almost all snow throughout the storm. The storm will also cause a very gusty wind to develop across our region later this evening through tomorrow causing lots of blowing and drifting where the precipitation remains mostly snow. Snowfall will range from 4 to 9” near the coastline to 7 – 14” inland from the coast, with 12 to 20” piling up across the north and mountains by the time the storm tapers off later Friday.

Snow Arrives Today, Snow, Mix and Rain Tonight

Todd Simcox

Updated 5 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure located off the Mid-Atlantic coastline this morning is forecast to travel northward along the east coast into the Gulf of Maine by Friday morning then into the Bay of Fundy later Friday. With the track of this storm being so close to the coastline, we’ll see varying types of precipitation across the state as milder air moves into the mid and low levels of the atmosphere. Precipitation is expected to fall as mostly snow with maybe a little sleet mixing in along and north of a line from Houlton to Millinocket to Rangeley. Snow will likely change to a mix of sleet and freezing rain over much of the rest of the state with the exception of the Midcoast through coastal Downeast areas where we will likely see a changeover to all rain during the night tonight. The changeover to all rain will keep snowfall accumulations to a minimum for the Midcoast and coastal Downeast locales.
