Snow Tapering Off, Still Windy & Cold This Afternoon, Sunshine Returns Friday

Todd Simcox

Updated 9 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Snow will continue to gradually wind down from west to east across the state this afternoon. Any additional accumulation will be very light with just 1″-2″ possible. Temperatures will hold steady this afternoon with readings mainly in the teens. North/northwest winds will remain gusty, making it feel much colder. Wind chills this afternoon will feel more like it’s near or below 0° at times. The gusty winds will also cause areas of blowing and drifting snow which in turn will reduce visibilities in some locales so use plenty of caution on the roads today. Lingering snow showers will wind down early tonight followed by clearing skies. It’ll be a frigid night with low temperatures expected to bottom out in the low to mid-single numbers below 0° north and near or a little above zero elsewhere.

Major Winter Storm Tonight into Tomorrow

Chris Ewing

Updated 9 months ago

 

A rapidly intensifying storm moving though the Ohio River Valley today, through Southern New England later tonight, and into the Gulf of Maine tomorrow morning will bring us a variety of precipitation forms along with strong gusty winds. As we go into the rest of this evening we’ll see periods of moderate to heavy snow, sleet, freezing rain, and rain. Rain and freezing rain along the coast will finally change to snow late tonight but accumulations will be on the lower side because the majority of the precipitation will fall before the changeover occurs. Temps fall into the teens tonight and we could even see some single digits in far northern locations. It will become windy as well with blowing and drifting of snow likely. Needless to say, travel will continue to be dangerous tonight and into the early morning hours tomorrow.

Major Winter Storm Arrives Today, Heaviest Snow North

Todd Simcox

Updated 9 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Areas of snow (away from the coast) and mixed precipitation/rain (along the coast) will continue to spread across the state this afternoon becoming steadier and heavier as the afternoon progresses. Temperatures will top off in the 30s to near 40° initially today then fall into the mid-20s to mid-30s from north to south across the state this afternoon. Snow will continue especially from Dover-Foxcroft to Lincoln northward tonight while a mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain falls over the rest of the state as low pressure moves through the Gulf of Maine and pushes some slightly warmer air into coastal and inland locales. Plain rain is likely along the immediate coastline and outer islands for a time tonight too. Precipitation will be heavy at times tonight. As the storm moves by to our south tonight, much colder air will begin to filter into the state causing any mix and rain to gradually change back to snow after midnight from west to east across the state. Nighttime temperatures will bottom out in the single numbers to low and mid-teens from north to south. Northerly winds will be strong tonight too so expect areas of blowing and drifting snow.

Partly Sunny & Milder Saturday, Fair & Colder Sunday

Chris Ewing

Updated 10 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A cold front will approach and then cross New England today.  Temps ahead of the cold front today will likely be the mildest we have seen so far this month across Maine as highs reach the mid 30s to low 40s. The approaching cold front will bring partly cloudy skies to our area today, with a few scattered snow showers possible across far northern parts of Maine. Colder air will begin to filter back into Maine tonight as the cold front slides offshore and a northwest breeze develops here. Sunday will be bright and chilly as a bubble of arctic high pressure centered north of the Great Lakes region moves east and controls our weather.

As high pressure slips off to our east a southerly breeze will develop here today and that will allow temps to rebound back to more seasonable levels as highs reach up into the 30s across most of Maine. Temps Saturday across Maine will likely be the mildest we have seen so far this month as highs reach the mid 30s to low 40s just ahead of a cold front. The approaching cold front will bring partly cloudy skies to Maine Saturday, with a few scattered snow showers possible across far northern parts of the state. Colder air will begin to filter back into Maine Saturday night as the cold front slides offshore and a northwest breeze develops here.
