More Accumulating Snow Arriving Tonight

Chris Ewing

Updated 8 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.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

We’re tracking a weak area of low pressure that is forecast to develop over southern New England today then pass just to the south of Maine during the night tonight. Clouds will continue to thicken with snow developing from west to east across the state during the afternoon and evening making for some slippery roads for the evening commute. Temperatures will be more seasonable with highs topping off in the mid-20s to around 30° this afternoon. Snow will continue falling tonight, winding down from west to east shortly after midnight. By the time the snow ends, snowfall accumulations will range from 4”-8” from the Midcoast to Augusta points south; 3”-6” north of there to a line from Princeton to Dover-Foxcroft to Rangeley; 1”-3” north of that line up to northern Aroostook County, northern Piscataquis County and Northern Somerset county where amounts will be 1” or less.

After a bright start to our day the clouds will begin to push back into our region today as high pressure shifts off to our east. The clouds are associated with a disturbance aloft which will sweep into the Northeast later today. The disturbance aloft will force a new surface storm to develop near New York City this morning. The new storm will slide northeast and intensify as it passes through the Gulf of Maine just to the south of our region later this evening. The storm will bring a period of snow to our area later this afternoon and evening, with the steadiest snow likely falling from the Bangor region on south and east. Snowfall later today and tonight will range from 1 to 3″ north and west of the Bangor region to 3 to 6″ from Bangor on south and east, with possibly a bit more piling up in the Portland region.

Snow & Wind Later Today into Early Sunday

Chris Ewing

Updated 8 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 8 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 8 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.
