From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Snow will taper to snow showers from southwest to northeast this morning. We’ll continue to see the chance for scattered snow showers throughout the afternoon with some mixed rain and snow showers possible for areas closer to the coast. Additional accumulations of 1”-3” can be expected in most locales with higher amounts of 2”-5” with a few 6” amounts possible over Northern Washington County, Southern Aroostook County, and East Central Penobscot County. Temperatures will top off in the 30s this afternoon. Lingering snow showers will wind down early tonight followed by partial clearing late. Temperatures will be colder tonight with lows in the upper teens to low 20s.

 

Drier and brighter weather returns to our forecast on Friday. Expect morning clouds to give way to a mix of sun and clouds as the day progresses and high pressure builds in. Highs will range from the upper 20s to low 30s Friday afternoon. High pressure will bring us some quiet weather this weekend with a mix of sun and clouds expected Saturday and Sunday and temperatures in the 20s to low 30s both days.
