Thanks to a southwesterly wind, temperatures will be above average today with highs in the 30s to near 40° in most locales. Skies will be mainly clear tonight as high pressure builds in.

Fair, Breezy & Much Colder the Next Few Days

Chris Ewing

Updated 9 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A clipper type storm that moved east across southern Quebec today brought snow to northern and western parts of Maine today, while southeastern parts of the state saw a strong southerly wind drive temps into the low 40s, allowing any early morning snow to quickly change to rain. The storms trailing cold front will slip off to our east this evening and another shot of arctic air will sweep into the state this evening, with temps falling to between -7 and +5 by daybreak tomorrow. The combination of the cold temps and a gust breeze will drive wind chill values as low as -35 late tonight across northwestern parts of Maine. Any wet roadways will quickly ice over this evening so please be careful if you plan to travel tonight. Arctic high pressure slowly building east from the middle of the country will bring fair and cold weather to New England tomorrow through Thursday.

Snow, Mix & Rain Today, Much Colder Tuesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 9 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Strong low pressure is forecast to cross northern Maine, dragging a cold front through the state during the day today and bringing us a round of snow, mix and rain. Light snow will develop in all areas this morning making for some slippery roads for the morning commute. Snow will continue through the mid-afternoon for areas north of Dover-Foxcroft and Lincoln while areas further south see the snow mix with and even change to rain as southerly winds ahead of the cold front usher milder air into the region. There will be a wide range in temperatures from north to south across the state with highs in the mid-20s to low 30s north and mid-30s to low 40s south towards the coast. The bulk of the precipitation will be done by late afternoon or early evening and by that point accumulations will range from 1” or less along the coast, 1”-3” over inland locations then 2”-5” with some isolated 6” totals along and north of a line from Princeton to Dover-Foxcroft to Jackman. As the cold moves to our east tonight, winds will shift to the west ushering arctic air back into the region with lows dropping to a couple degrees either side of zero for nighttime lows in most locales.

Light Snow/Mix Monday, Cold Tuesday & Wednesday

Jessica Conley

Updated 9 months ago

 

We’ll see increasing clouds tonight as a low pressure system approaches the region. Snow will develop through the overnight hours and spread throughout the state as we head into Monday morning. Overnight lows tonight will range from -5 to 16 degrees at the coldest point and then begin to rise as the warm front associated with the low moves through the state. That’ll cause highs tomorrow to range from 30 to 40. Wind chills tonight will be very cold as well. Wind chill advisories have been issued as well as winter weather advisories for some parts of the state. Once the cold front pushes through by tomorrow afternoon/evening temps will drop again, falling to below zero in most locations Monday night. During the day light snow is expected with most locations south of Bangor seeing a coating to two inches of snow. North of Bangor we’ll pick up somewhere in the range of 2”-4”. Either way, it’s going to be enough to make things slick for the morning commute. Some spots near Houlton may see more along the lines of 4”-6”. Snow wraps up by Monday evening.

Snow & Mix Ending, Blustery & Frigid Sunday

Chris Ewing

Updated 9 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm currently sliding through Ontario will move into Quebec this evening and pull a strong arctic cold front across New England tonight. The combination of the cold front and an energetic disturbance aloft crossing the Northeast will bring periods of snow to Maine this evening, with the heaviest precipitation being found over eastern parts of the state. A strong southerly wind on the east side of the front will pull enough mild air into coastal Maine to allow the snow to mix with or briefly change to rain before changing back to snow later at night. The snow will taper off and end after midnight as the arctic front sweeps off to our east.

Blustery & Milder, with Snow & Mix Developing

Chris Ewing

Updated 9 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

The ridge of arctic high pressure that has produced the dry and cold conditions across Maine the past few days will swing east of New England this morning. As the high moves away a clipper type storm will swing east across Ontario and then into Quebec as we progress through today and tonight. The storms trailing cold front will combine with a strong disturbance in the upper atmosphere too bring a period of snow and mixed precipitation to Maine today and tonight, with the bulk of the snow and mixed precipitation falling later in the afternoon and evening hours. The heaviest precipitation will likely fall across the eastern half of Maine as a storm tries to develop along the cold front as it crosses our region. A strong southerly breeze ahead of the cold front will likely usher enough warm air into the lower levels of the atmosphere to allow the snow to mix with or change to rain within about 20 miles of the coastline, while it remains mostly snow elsewhere in Maine. High temps later Saturday afternoon will range from the 20s to near 30 inland and in the 30s along the coastline.

Dry & Frigid Friday, Some Snow & Milder Saturday

Chris Ewing

Updated 9 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Arctic high pressure will bring fair skies and very cold temps to Maine tonight and Friday. Low temps tonight will fall below zero statewide, with temps as cold as -30 in some of the deeper valleys up north. With temps running well below zero tonight make sure the pets stay indoors for the night and the kids are bundled up as they head off to school in the morning. Despite partial sunshine high temps Friday will struggle to reach 10 across the south, with high temps near zero across the north.  A strong arctic front will bring a round of snow showers to Maine Saturday as it approaches from the west. A few to possibly several inches of snow may fall in our region as the front crosses New England, with the bulk of the light snow falling later Saturday morning through early Saturday evening.  At this point in time it appears the heaviest snow will fall over the eastern half of Maine. A gusty south to southwest breeze ahead of the front will briefly usher milder air into New England Saturday and that may allow the snow to briefly mix with or change to snow along the Downeast Coastline later in the day.

Dry & Very Cold through Friday

Chris Ewing

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The combination of arctic high pressure to our west and an intensifying storm well southeast of Maine brought our region a very gusty northwest breeze today. The strong wind combined with the very cold air over the Northeast to bring wind chill values to as low as -40 in parts of Maine today. The combination of frigid temps and the gusty wind will keep wind chill values well below zero tonight and tomorrow, so make sure you buddle up if you are going outside for any length of time and also keep the pets indoors.
