Rain wraps up tonight as the low pressure system exits the area and a cold front moves though.  Tuesday we’ll see temperatures still fairly mild with sun and clouds for the day with breezy conditions. Things become cooler by Wednesday after a second cold front moves though. Things then get very interesting for Wednesday night into Thanksgiving Day.

 

We’ll see increasing clouds Wednesday morning before snow showers develop Wednesday afternoon from south to north. Snow will continue Wednesday night and intensify overnight. The track of the low will determine the amount and type of precipitation. It looks like we could see some significant snowfall from this storm making travel difficult especially Wednesday evening and Thanksgiving morning. Winds will become gusty with this storm.

 

By late Thursday the storm clears out. We’ll see much cooler air in the wake of the storm and things stay chilly for Friday and Saturday. A few snow showers are possible during the day on Friday,

 

Tonight: Lows in the mid 40s to low 50s with mostly cloudy skies. Winds from the southwest at 10 – 15 mph.

 

Tuesday: Highs ranging from the upper 40s to low and mid 50s. Slowly cooling late in the day. Winds from southwest at 10 – 15 mph.

 

Wednesday: Highs mid 30s to low 40s with increasing clouds and snow developing in the afternoon.

 

Wednesday Night: Snow and mix at the coast to mostly snow inland. Steadiest and heaviest precipitation will fall from Lincoln/Dover-Foxcroft and to the south and east. Some rain on the immediate coast and for the islands is possible.

 

Thanksgiving (Thursday): Snow/mix/rain continues through the mid to late morning with possibly a few flurries lingering into the early afternoon. Precip ends southwest to northeast. Highs mid 20s to low/mid 30s.

 

Friday: Highs mid 20s to low 30s with a few flurries possible.

 

Saturday: Highs mid 20s to low 30s with a mix of sun and clouds.
