Brighter, Breezy & Pleasant Wednesday

Chris Ewing

Updated 11 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm passing well east of New England tonight and early Wednesday will allow a gusty northwest breeze to develop across Maine later tonight and that will cause drier air over southern Canada to work into our region. The drier air will cause skies to begin to clear overnight, with temps still running milder than normal as lows hold in the mid 20s to lower 30s.

Updated 11 months ago

 

We’ll have cloudy skies for the day today as a strong low pressure system moves closer to our area. It will mostly stay off the coast but could bring some drizzle to the region and a few rain or snow showers to far eastern Maine overnight tonight. It will stay mild today as well. Wednesday morning could start with a few lingering rain or snow showers very early. These will be very limited and confined to the Downeast region in Washington County. Things clear up by late Wednesday morning and we’ll see partly sunny skies. Highs will be a few degrees above normal making for a nice day overall.

Snow & Rain Continues Today

Jessica Conley

Updated 11 months ago

 

Rain and snow showers continue through late morning/early afternoon today. Roads have become very slippery, so please use caution with all travel plans. It’ll stay cloudy this afternoon. Looks cloudy for Tuesday too although we are watching a strong low pressure system that models still have staying off the coast. The flow around this low is what is pulling so much additional moisture in for today, but it does look like the heavy stuff will stay almost completely off the coast in Tuesday. The exception to this will be in far eastern Washington County where a few rain or snow showers could be seen overnight Tuesday in Wednesday. It will be partly sunny for Wednesday. By Thursday there will be a chance of snow showers to start the day in Northern Maine then we’ll see rain showers during the day as a cold front crosses the state.

*Winter Weather Advisories are still in effect through tomorrow morning at 7am for several areas in Eastern Maine.

 

Overnight tonight everyone changes back to snow showers that will continue through much of the day tomorrow in about the eastern half of the state. The precipitation could become steady at times during the day Monday.  Roads could certainly become very slippery as well, so please use caution with all travel plans. Even locations that have seen mostly rain today will freeze tonight causing icy conditions. It’ll stay mostly cloudy on Monday.

Snow Showers On The Way, With Some Accumulation Possible

Jessica Conley

Updated 11 months ago

Winter Weather Advisories have been posted for several areas in Eastern Maine.

 

Snow will move into the region tonight and could accumulate up to 5” in some spots by the time it wrap up tomorrow evening. Overnight lows tonight will be cool enough to support snow in all areas that see precipitation. By tomorrow, the low that is causing the precip will move though the state. Highs will make it to above the freezing point in some locations tomorrow so many people will notice a changeover to rain or a mix in the afternoon. This will hamper snowfall totals in these areas. Sunday night everyone changes back to snow. The precipitation doesn’t look to be heavy at all, mostly just snow showers throughout the day, but with the ground frozen snow will be able to accumulate. Roads could certainly become messy at times as well, so please use caution with all travel plans into the day Monday.

Mostly Sunny & Cold Friday & Saturday

Chris Ewing

Updated 11 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The powerful storm system that brought the heavy rain, wind and mild temps to Maine yesterday continues to ride northeast across Labrador. A brisk northwest breeze on the backside of the low pulled a dry and much colder airmass into our region today. Temps tonight will run below normal as lows fall into the mid single numbers north to mid teens south. The gusty northwest breeze will diminish to under 10 mph by daybreak tomorrow.

Breezy & Colder Today, No Big Storms In Sight

Todd Simcox

Updated 11 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure building into the region will combine with our departing storm to give us a gusty west/northwest wind up to 30-35 MPH at times today. The west/northwest wind will usher a colder airmass into the region for today too with temperatures only in the 20s to near 30° for highs after being in the 50s to near 60° yesterday. With temps in the 20s and a gusty wind up to 30-35 MPH, wind chills will be a factor today feeling more like it’s in the teens at times. Skies will be clear tonight with lows dropping back to the upper single numbers to mid-teens for nighttime lows.

Rain and Wind this Evening then Brighter, Blustery and Much Colder Thanksgiving

Chris Ewing

Updated 11 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The storm system that brought the snow then heavy rain, wind and very mild temps to Maine today will continue to slide north across Western New England this evening and then up into Quebec later tonight. As the low lifts up to our northwest this evening the storm’s trailing cold front will sweep east through our region. Much colder air will begin to push back into Maine as the front rides off to our east and by daybreak tomorrow the temps will range from the high teens over far western parts of the state to the low 30s along the coastline. The steady and heavy rain will taper to lighter showers this evening and then change to snow showers before ending. Little if any snow accumulation is expected tonight except across the mountain and far northern parts of Maine where a couple of inches might pile up.

Wet, Windy & Mild Today, Colder Temps Return Thursday

Todd Simcox

Updated 11 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Strengthening low pressure is forecast to move through New England during the day today. The storm will take a track through western New England today then along the Maine/Quebec border this evening. Rain will be heavy at times today with as much as 1”-3” of rain possible by later tonight when precipitation is expected to wind down. With that much rain expected, we could see some minor street flooding in poor drainage areas and we’ll also keep an eye out for any rapid rises on area rivers and streams due to all the runoff. Temperatures will be well above average today with readings climbing into the mid-40s to near 50° north and low to mid-50s elsewhere for highs. Winds will be a concern today too as very strong winds will be located just off the surface today as the storm moves through. South/southeast winds will increase to 15-35 MPH with gusts to 40-60 MPH possible especially along the coastline so power outages are a definite possibility today. Rain will taper off tonight as the storm moves to our east. Colder air moving in on the backside of the storm will allow for showers to change back to some light snow or snow showers late tonight. With the colder air returning, temperatures will drop back to the 20s in most locales.

Windy, Wet & Mild Thursday

Chris Ewing

Updated 11 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

An intensifying storm system, currently developing over the Gulf Coast region, will race northeast tonight and then pass up to the west of Maine, over western New England later tomorrow. With the storm passing to the west of us a strong southerly wind will develop across the Pine Tree State Wednesday. The strong southerly wind will bring warming temperatures and significant precipitation into New England. Precipitation tonight will start out as snow north and a wintry mix south. Mixed precipitation tonight will quickly change to rain near the coastline as milder air works in, with a period of snow and ice across northern and western areas accumulating up to a few inches before changing to rain on Wednesday morning.

Less Wind, More Seasonable Today, Wet, Windy & Mild Wednesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 11 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Skies will remain partly to mostly cloudy for the rest of the day. Temperatures will be more seasonable today with highs in topping off in the 30s to near 40° this afternoon and with just a light wind expected, it will feel much nicer outside as well. Low pressure moving up the east coast towards New England will push precipitation into the state during the night tonight. Temperatures will be cold enough so that most areas especially away from the coastline will start out as snow or mix then transition to rain from south to north late tonight and early Wednesday morning as temperatures start to climb. Nighttime low temperatures will bottom out in the upper 20s to mid-30s early then slowly rise into the 30s and 40s after midnight.

Mostly Cloudy & Milder Tuesday, Windy & Wet Wednesday

Chris Ewing

Updated 11 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

A weak storm system moving across Ontario and Quebec will pull a warm front north into New England tonight and early Tuesday. The warm front will bring increasing clouds and a bit of light snow shower activity to parts of the Pine Tree State tonight and tomorrow. The combination of increasing clouds, a lighter wind, and slightly milder air will keep it more comfortable tonight as low temps fall into the teens and low 20s. On Tuesday, skies will remain mostly cloudy and a light southerly breeze on the back side of high pressure will continue to allow temperatures to moderate back to more seasonable levels.

Breezy & Cold Today, Milder Temps Tuesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 11 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will slide through New England today giving us a nice but chilly day to start the work week. The good news is that as the ridge of high pressure moves in, it will cause the winds to diminish as the day progresses.  Temperatures will gradually climb to the upper teens to mid-20s for highs this afternoon. We’ll see a good deal of sunshine today with a few more clouds arriving this afternoon as a warm front approaches from the west. The warm front will lift northward across the state tonight bringing a few snow showers to the area for the nighttime hours. The warm front will continue to lift north of the state on Tuesday allowing some slightly milder air to move back into the region with temperatures expected to be closer to normal Tuesday afternoon.
