Patchy Light Snow & Icy Mix Tonight

Chris Ewing

Updated 11 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Meteorologist:

 

A small storm system will continue to bring light snow and mixed precipitation to our region tonight as it works north through the Gulf of Maine. Over interior Maine periods of light snow may at times mix with a little freezing drizzle, while along the coastline a light wintry mix and rain will continue during the evening hours. The light snow and mix will taper off later tonight as the storm passes off to our northeast. Low temps tonight will range from the mid teens across the north to near 30 along the coastline. Total snow and ice accumulation will range from a coating near the coastline to up to 3” over some of the hillier locals of Maine.

Snow Developing Today, Light Accumulations Expected

Todd Simcox

Updated 11 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A couple areas of low pressure will impact our forecast today. One passing to our north and a second one passing just to our south. These will bring us a quick shot of precipitation today, most of which will fall as snow. Periods of snow will continue this afternoon, creating some slippery driving conditions in many spots during the afternoon and evening hours. Most areas will see accumulations of an inch or two by the evening commute. Coastal areas will likely see the snow mix with sleet, freezing rain and maybe even plain rain this afternoon and evening which will limit accumulations to an inch or less along the coast. Temperatures will warm to the mid-20s to mid-30s from north to south across the state. Snow and mix will wind down early tonight as low pressure moves away from the region. By the time everything tapers off, we could see an additional inch or two in spots so total snow accumulations for the storm will range from 1” or less along the coast and 1”-3” elsewhere with a few 4” amounts over the northern half of the state. Skies will begin to clear out later tonight as drier air moves in behind the departing storm.

Snow/Mix/Rain Monday, Bitterly Cold by the End of the Week

Updated 11 months ago

 

Monday We’ll see a low pressure system move into the region. We’ll see things cloud up Monday morning and by early afternoon rain and snow showers will develop. Most of the area will get snow, but the immediate coast (10 miles or so inland too) will stay slightly too warm and should expect a rain/mix. The showers will wrap up by early Tuesday. We’ll see partly to mostly cloudy skies Tuesday as the cold front exits the regions. Things will start to clear out by Wednesday when another cold front crosses the state. Thursday a high pressure ridge helps to bring us partly to mostly sunny skies but temps behind the front will be very cold. Highs only make it into the teens and low 20s and overnight lows Thursday night into Friday drop into the negative single digits for some.

Chilly Saturday & Colder Sunday

Chris Ewing

Updated 11 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

A northwest breeze this weekend will continue to pull colder air into our region. High temps on Saturday will range from the mid 20s north to low to mid 30s south as any early clouds give way to increasing sunshine as high pressure approaches from the northwest. The ridge of high pressure will bring bright and cold weather to Maine Sunday as highs hold in the 20s statewide. A storm moving towards New England Monday will likely bring some snow and mixed precipitation to our region as we head back work Monday. Very cold air will build into the Northeast later next week.

Wet Start Today, Drier This Afternoon

Todd Simcox

Updated 11 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Any lingering showers over eastern Maine will come to an end early this afternoon as the cold front and associated area of low pressure move off to our south and east. Colder and drier air will begin to move into the state this afternoon which will dry us out and brighten the skies a bit from north to south. The best chance for sunshine will be over the northern half of the state with more clouds sticking around elsewhere. The departing cold front is expected to stall out just south of the state during the night tonight. Another wave of low pressure will ride along the front and bring us the chance for a few snow showers tonight mainly for areas south of Dover-Foxcroft and Lincoln. There may be some steadier light snow along the immediate coastline down through southern areas where up to 1” of accumulation is possible by daybreak. Temperatures will be colder tonight with lows bottoming out in the upper teens to near 20° north and low to mid-20s elsewhere.

A storm currently moving northeast through Ontario will pull a warm front north across Maine tonight. The warm front will bring occasional rain showers to our area tonight, with far northern parts of Maine seeing a wintry mix this evening before milder air causes the precipitation to become all rain. Temps late tonight will range from the mid 30s to low 40s from north to south.

Dry Start Today, Showers Arrive This Afternoon

Todd Simcox

Updated 11 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Clouds will continue to thicken and showers are expected to develop from west to east across the state this afternoon. Temperatures will climb into the upper 30s to mid-40s so that most of the precipitation will be in liquid form. There is a chance that some areas north of Bangor see an icy mix at the onset but that should quickly go over to plain rain as the afternoon progresses. Showers will continue through the night tonight as a cold front crosses the state. Temperatures won’t move much tonight with lows holding in the 30s to near 40° so showers are again expected stay as plain rain through the overnight hours.

Mild, with Light Showers Developing Thursday

Chris Ewing

Updated 11 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

High pressure will bring mostly clear skies to Maine tonight as it slips east through New England and then into the Gulf of Maine tomorrow morning. Clouds ahead of a warm front will move into our region tomorrow morning as a storm lifting up into Ontario pulls a warm front into our area. The warm front will produce a period of light showers across the Pine Tree State later tomorrow and tomorrow night and as the showers develop it may be just cold enough to produce a bit of an icy mix over northern most parts of Maine. Southerly winds all across Maine Thursday will bring a milder than normal airmass into our region and high temps will range from the mid 30s north to the mid 40s south.

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.

Cloudy with Drizzle Today, Some Sunshine Tomorrow

Jessica Conley

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.

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.
