From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

High pressure will continue sliding through the area this afternoon. We’ll see plenty of sunshine and seasonable temperatures with highs topping off in the mid-20s to low 30s this afternoon. Low pressure over the Great Lakes region will continue to push towards the state tonight. As the low approaches, we’ll see increasing clouds during the night tonight with some light snow and snow showers moving into western and northwestern parts of the state. We’ll have a wide range in low temperatures tonight with lows in the mid-single numbers to around 10° north to the teens to near 20° closer to the coast.

Winter Storm Warnings are in effect for the entire state on Friday through Saturday morning. Low pressure is forecast to redevelop near Cape Cod during the day Friday and strengthen as it heads towards Nova Scotia. The storm will pull moisture northward off the Atlantic, bringing us another round of accumulating snow. Snow is expected to gradually spread from west to east across the state Friday morning through early afternoon and become steadier and heavier during the afternoon and evening. Temperatures along the coast may be warm enough so that some rain mixes in with the snow during the day Friday then changes back to snow Friday night, otherwise most areas will remain cold enough to see all snow. Snow will taper off from west to east across the state later Saturday morning through early-mid afternoon. By the time the snow winds down it looks like we’ll see accumulations ranging from 6”-12” across the entire state with the heaviest snowfall occurring for area from Greenville to Millinocket southward. Temperatures will be colder Saturday with highs in the mid-teens to low 20s. Sunshine returns to the forecast for Sunday with highs mainly in the teens. Bitterly cold arctic air will move in early next week with temperatures only reach the single numbers either side of 0° on Monday.

Rest of Today: mostly sunny and seasonable. Highs between 23°-33°. Light and variable wind.

Tonight: becoming cloudy. Light snow and snow showers possible late especially over western and northwestern parts of the state. Lows between 5°-20°, warmest along the coast. Light and variable wind.

Friday: periods of snow spreading west to east across the state during the morning and early afternoon. Some rain could mix in with the snow along the coast. Snow will become steadier and heavier during the afternoon and evening. Highs between 29°-37°. East/southeast wind 5-15 MPH.

Saturday: lingering light snow and snow showers tapering off from late morning through mid-afternoon. Colder with highs in the mid-teens to low 20s.

Sunday: partly to mostly sunny. Cold with highs in the upper single numbers to low teens north and mid-teens to around 20° elsewhere.

Monday: partly to mostly cloudy with snow possible. Highs only reach a couple degrees either side of 0°.
