Clear & Quiet Saturday, Few Flakes Possible Sunday, and My Thoughts About Where The Snow Went

Jessica Conley

Updated 1 month ago

We’ll have mainly clear skies overnight.  Temps will cool down, but only into the upper 20s and low 30s due to the mixing from the winds that should continue to subside overnight. Saturday will feature a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the upper 30s and low to mid 40s with a light wind from the west at 5 – 10 mph. Sunday we’ll see some light snow across the area (especially Northern Maine) as a low pressure system moves though without a lot of moisture. Looks like the Houlton and Millinocket areas could see around an inch of accumulation, while places farther north may see up to 2 – 3”. Farther south will see less and could see some sleep or freezing rain mixing in. Places closest to the coast should see all rain. Be careful out on the roads, especially early Sunday.

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 month ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A cold front will move east of the state this afternoon. Lingering rain over eastern areas will continue to taper off thru early afternoon. Drier, cooler air moving in behind the front will allow for some breaks of sunshine this afternoon especially for areas from Dover-Foxcroft to Lincoln southward. Areas further north will likely remain mostly cloudy through the afternoon. Temperatures will be very mild today with highs in the 40s to mid-50s from north to south across the state then fall as the afternoon progresses and cooler air moves in. Skies will be clear to partly cloudy tonight. Plan on a colder night tonight with lows in the mid-20s to low 30s. Any lingering moisture on the roads, sidewalks, etc could refreeze tonight so be careful tonight and early Friday.

Updated 1 month ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

Low pressure will continue to track northward towards southern Michigan this afternoon and evening. Moisture streaming northward with this system will spread across Maine this afternoon. Temperatures are still hovering around 32° over much of northern Maine so freezing rain is still possible mainly early this afternoon otherwise expect just plain rain for most spots for the remainder of the day. Most areas will see temperatures reaching the mid-30s over the northern half of the state and upper 30s to mid-40s elsewhere for highs this afternoon. Rain will continue, possibly heavy at times tonight. Temperatures won’t drop much tonight with lows in the upper 30s to mid-40s.

Occasional Light Snow, Mix & Rain Possible Today, Wet & Milder Weather Wednesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 month ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Moisture streaming northward into New England ahead of low pressure over the Midwest will give us the chance for some occasional light precipitation today. Temperatures will be cold enough for precipitation to fall as snow and/or mix over inland areas while areas closer to the coast see mainly mix and light rain today. Temperatures will top off in the mid-30s to low 40s. Precipitation will be steadiest over areas south and west of Bangor. We’ll see periods of light rain and freezing rain possible tonight especially from Bangor northward with plain rain for areas closer to the coast. Be careful if travelling tonight as some roads could be icy. Temperatures will be in the upper 20s to mid-30s for nighttime lows.

Highs today will range from the mid-30s to the low 40s with cloudy skies and a few showers moving in as the day progresses. We could see a bit of freezing rain over northern areas. Showers will continue overnight and become steadier Wednesday. Highs Wednesday will make it into the 40s with some low 50 degree readings possible, with cloudy skies and rain continuing. Rain will be steady and even heavy at times late Wednesday into early Christmas morning (Thursday). I’m expecting 1 – 2″ of rain in the Greater Bangor Area. You’ll see less as you head north and west and slightly more as you head toward the coast. It’ll be breezy for Wednesday and into Thursday too.

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 month ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will slowly slide to our east today providing us with a light east/northeast wind today. We’ll see lots of clouds around the area this afternoon with a few breaks of sunshine possible. The east/northeast wind will give us a chance for a few scattered snow showers mainly for areas south of Greenville and Millinocket. The snow showers may mix with rain for areas closer to the coastline. Temperatures today will top off in the upper 20s to mid-30s for highs. Scattered snow showers will continue through the night tonight and we could see a coating of snow in some spots. Overnight lows will bottom out in the 20s to near 30°.

Cool & Quiet Start to the Week, Rainy Christmas

Jessica Conley

Updated 1 month ago

We have another few cool and quiet days on the way before we see a large rain storm move in, just in time for Christmas Eve and Christmas day. Although I was totally banking on this storm to move to our east (Christmas Eve Storm, you had one job!) and provide us with a festive blanket of snow, it looks like its western path will put us in the warm part of the storm. Brown/green Christmas it is.

Dry & Chilly both Weekend Days

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

High pressure currently working east from western Ontario will bring generally quiet and chilly conditions to Maine this weekend and Monday as well. A bit of moisture trapped in the low to mid levels of the atmosphere over the weekend along with a light onshore breeze will likely bring some patchy clouds and possibly a few flurries to parts of Maine this weekend, with the most likely time to see scattered flurries being Sunday. A light northerly breeze over the weekend will keep the temps rather chilly both weekend days, with highs holding in the 20s to around 30 and lows running in the single numbers north and teens south.

Drier & Cooler Today through Sunday

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

High pressure approaching New England from the west will bring brightening skies to Maine both today and Saturday with most clouds being found across the north and mountains. High temperatures today will range from the mid 20s to low 30s from north to south with temperatures on Saturday running a few degrees cooler. A storm system developing over the southeastern States over the weekend may get close enough to Maine to bring some light mixed precipitation to Maine Monday, but at this point in time it appears any precipitation that does fall in Maine will be on the light side.

Snow, Mix & Rain This Afternoon, Snow & Mix Thursday

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 month ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure is forecast to move through the Gulf of Maine bringing a wintry mix to the area today. Temperatures will be cold enough so that precipitation falls as snow and mix for areas north and west of Greenville to Millinocket while the rest of the state sees mix and rain. Temperatures will range from the mid-30s to mid-40s for highs from north to south today. Colder air will begin to filter into the state this evening through the overnight hours as low pressure moves to our east. As the colder air arrives, snow, mix and rain will change to all snow from Dover-Foxcroft to Lincoln northward with rain and mixed precipitation changing to snow and mix elsewhere. Temperatures will cool off to the mid-20s to low 30s for nighttime lows.

Rain & Mix Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure will bring a mixed bag of precipitation to Maine today with much of the precipitation from the Lincoln and Dover-Foxcroft areas on south falling as rain or a mix. In areas north and west of the Lincoln and Dover-Foxcroft regions a combination of snow, sleet freezing rain and a little rain will fall today. Colder air will begin to creep south through our region as the developing storm to our south lifts north through the Gulf of Maine tonight. The colder air will cause the rain south and mixed precipitation north to change to mostly snow by Thursday morning. As the storm continues to lift up into the Canadian Maritimes Thursday the snow and mix will taper off from south to north.

Lots of Clouds Today, Mix & Rain Wednesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 month ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low clouds will prevail today providing us with gray skies for the rest of our Tuesday. High pressure sliding to our east today will cause winds to turn around to the east/southeast. The light onshore breeze will result in the chance for some areas of very light snow, icy mix and/or patchy drizzle to continue through the afternoon. Any precipitation will be very light and won’t amount to much of anything. Temperatures will top off in the low to mid-30s for highs this afternoon. Low pressure approaching from the Great Lakes region will cause light snow and mix to develop tonight mainly after midnight. Lows will range from the mid-20s to low 30s from north to south across the state.
