Snow Showers Today, Blustery & Frigid Thursday

Chris Ewing

Updated 3 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The arctic airmass currently bringing bitterly cold temps to our region will briefly moderate a little bit tonight and Wednesday as lows tonight hold between -8 and +8, with high temps tomorrow reaching the teens to low 20s across much of our area. During tomorrow a small storm system will slip through the eastern Gulf of Maine while at the same time an approaching trough aloft over southern Canada will slip into the Northeast. The two weather systems will combine to bring a period of snow showers to much of Maine late tonight through early tomorrow evening. Most of Maine will only pick up a dusting to a couple of inches tomorrow, but the small storm in the Gulf of Maine might enhance the snowfall over coastal sections of Downeast Maine, with a few locals possibly picking up between 2 to 4” by the time the snow showers taper off tomorrow evening.

Clouds will continue to spread across the state this afternoon as low pressure approaches from the west. Temperatures will be very cold with highs near or below zero north and single numbers to around 10° above zero elsewhere. Low pressure approaching from the west and another area of low pressure passing to our south will bring us some snow showers during the overnight tonight.

Bitterly Cold Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 3 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Arctic high pressure slipping off the southern New England coastline will bring a bright and very cold start to today. High temps today will run in the single numbers to low teens across much of Maine, with far northern parts of the state remaining below zero all day long. As the high moves offshore clouds ahead of a fast moving moisture starved storm system will push into New England this afternoon. The small storm will move into the eastern Gulf of Maine Wednesday morning and that along with an approaching trough aloft from the west will bring numerous snow showers to our region late tonight and part of Wednesday. At this time it appears any snowfall Wednesday across our region will range from a dusting to a few inches.

Snow, Sleet, Freezing Rain, & Rain Possible Tonight Into Tomorrow, Then Cold, Very Cold

Jessica Conley

Updated 3 weeks ago

Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories are in place through the overnight hours and into Sunday.

 

We’ll see precip move in tonight, starting in the form of snow. Before the change over I’m forecasting that we’ll have snowfall totals in the Bangor Area around 4”, totals in Bar Harbor around 3”, Waterville and Augusta around 5”, Millinocket around 5”, Greenville around 5”, and Houlton around 5”. Things start to change over to sleet and freezing rain very early tomorrow morning (3-6am depending on where you are) before all precip becomes rain by late tomorrow morning. Travel will become difficult tonight and during the morning hours tomorrow due to snow and icing. (I know, I’m full of good news.)

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A ridge of arctic high pressure currently centered north of the Great Lakes will build east and bring dry and very cold conditions to Maine through the evening hours. The arctic high will produce bright but very cold conditions in our region tomorrow as it works east across southern Quebec, with high temps across Maine running in the teens and low 20s south, but only reaching the single numbers north of Greenville and Millinocket. Clouds will be on the increase across Maine later in the afternoon Saturday as the high moves into the Canadian Maritimes and an intensifying storm moves up into the Ohio River Valley.

Chilly Today & Frigid Saturday

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

A small storm system moving east across central Quebec this morning will drag a strong arctic cold front through our region. The front will slip across the state this morning. The front will produce scattered snow showers and snow squalls across mainly northern parts of our region as it moves through. Once the front slips offshore a much colder airmass will begin to push back into northern New England later today on a brisk northwest breeze. Strong arctic high pressure moving east across southern Ontario will bring clear and frigid conditions to Maine tonight. The arctic high will produce bright but very cold conditions in our region Saturday as it works east across southern Quebec.

Cooler Temps Next Week, No Significant Snow in Sight

Jessica Conley

Today we’ll see the light snow across Northern Maine early, as a low pressure system moves through. Looks like the Houlton and Millinocket areas could see around an inch of accumulation, while places farther north may see up to 1 – 2”. Farther south will see less and could see some sleet or freezing rain mixing in. Places closest to the coast will see all rain. Be careful out on the roads, especially this morning when things could get a little slick. Skies become partly sunny as we head into this afternoon.
