From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

As of noontime, snow continued to fall over part of Hancock county east into central and coastal Washington county. The lingering snow will continue to wind down as low pressure passes to our south and east. Drier air moving into the state behind the departing storm will allow skies to gradually brighten as the afternoon progresses.  Temperatures will be chilly today with highs in the mid-30s to around 40° this afternoon. Skies will be clear tonight and with colder air moving in on a northwest wind, temperatures will drop to the mid-teens to low 20s for overnight lows.

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Areas of light snow and mixed precipitation will taper off this morning as low pressure slides to our south and east. Skies will brighten up from west to east across the state from late morning through the afternoon as drier air moves into the region. By the time the snow tapers off this morning, accumulations will range from about 2″ or less from the Lincoln, Dover-Foxcroft and Skowhegan regions on west and north. From the Augusta area to just north and west of the Bangor Region between 1 and 3″ will likely pile up and from Bangor down through the Mid-Coast and over Downeast Maine look for an average of 2 to 5″ to be on the ground. Temps today will run on the cold side as highs hold in the 30s to near 40 all across the Pine Tree State.

AM Sun Then Increasing Afternoon Clouds Today, AM Snow & Mix Friday

Todd Simcox

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Clouds will continue to gradually increase this afternoon as an upper level disturbance over the Great Lakes region continues to push towards New England. Temperatures will be cooler, more seasonable today with highs topping off in the upper 30s to mid-40s this afternoon. The upper level disturbance will also cause a new storm to develop off the Mid-Atlantic coastline later today/early tonight. The new storm is forecast to track northeastward towards southern Nova Scotia. This track is a little further west than previous forecasts and as a result, we will see some light snow and mixed precipitation later tonight into Friday. We’ll start the night under mostly cloudy skies and dry conditions. Light snow and mixed precipitation will develop later tonight mainly for areas south of Greenville and Millinocket while areas further north see just a few snow showers. Temperatures will drop to the 20s to near 30° for nighttime lows.

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Cooler air will continue to move into the Northeast today. Temps in the Pine Tree State today will range from the mid 30s north to the mid 40s south. A secondary cold front will cross Maine later tonight or early Friday and even colder air will filter into New England as we end the workweek. An upper level disturbance moving along the secondary cold front will bring some snow showers to our region later tonight and early Friday morning. Any accumulations associated with the front and disturbance will likely be light, with a coating to a few inches possible. The cold air will stick around for the weekend as well, with high temps running in the upper 20s north to 30s south both weekend days. The weather will generally be dry all weekend with maybe a few flurries or snow showers falling over the mountains as reinforcing shots of cold air invade the Pine Tree State.

Few Showers & Mild Today, Colder Temps Arrive Tonight

Todd Simcox

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A cold front will cross the state this afternoon bringing us a few scattered showers on its way through. It looks like the steadier/heavier showers will pass over far northern Maine and northward into Quebec so the showers that we see today will be on the light side for most locales. Otherwise, we’ll see lots of clouds and some patchy fog and drizzle for the rest of the day. Southerly winds ahead of the front will usher milder air into the region with highs reaching the 50s in most locales this afternoon. Showers will wind down this evening followed by clearing and colder weather tonight. Temperatures will drop to the mid-20s to mid-30s for nighttime lows.

Fair & Mild Today, Few Showers Wednesday

Chris Ewing

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Plan on a couple more rather mild days ahead before a much cooler airmass arrives in New England beginning Thursday. High pressure centered off the Mid-Atlantic coastline will bring a mild southerly breeze to much of Maine today, but northern parts of the state will remain stuck to the north of a front and that will keep temps north of Greenville and Millinocket running a bit cooler than locales south of the front. Skies will be variably cloudy across the state today with highs in the mid-40s to mid-50s from north to south.

The storm that brought rain to much of Maine and the snow to the northernmost parts of the state will continue to lift northeast and during Saturday it will be located over Newfoundland. The northwest breeze on the backside of the storm will continue to usher cold air into New England Saturday. Despite partly sunny skies the temps Saturday will hold in the 30s to lower 40s, with the somewhat gusty breeze making it feel even a bit cooler. A weak cold front will bring a few more clouds to Maine Saturday night and part of Sunday. The front may kick off a few light rain and snow showers across northern parts of Maine Sunday otherwise it should remain dry all weekend long. Temperatures at the beginning of the workweek will be rather seasonable, but some very cold air will likely begin to invade the Northeast beginning Wednesday.

Rain South & Wintry Mix North Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 3 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm currently moving east through the Ohio River Valley will redevelop just to the south of the Southern New England Coastline this evening and then intensify as it moves northeast just off our coastline tomorrow morning. Low pressure, passing just off our coastline, will bring our region rain and a rather strong and gusty wind as it moves northeast this morning. With the storm remaining off to our southeast, a northerly breeze will bring cooler air into Maine, allowing the precipitation to mix with then change to wet snow over northern and western parts of the state. From the Skowhegan, Dover-Foxcroft and Lincoln areas on south the bulk if not all the precipitation will fall as a chilly rain. In general from the Greenville and Millinocket areas on north and west mixed rain and snow will turn to mostly snow before tapering off later today. As colder air aloft continues to feed south through the Pine Tree State the rain may briefly mix with a bit of wet snow as far south in the Bangor area just before ending today. Around the Skowhegan, Dover-Foxcroft and Lincoln regions a coating to an inch or two will be possible today as the rain in those locales changes over more quickly to a wintry mix. On a line from Greenville to Millinocket and Houlton generally 2 to 5″ will likely pile up before the storm tapers off, with 6 to 12″ accumulating across far northern parts of the state.
