Rain Ending Tonight. Falling Temperatures Friday
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Rain continues to move off towards the east and temperatures will be warm enough that the majority of the moisture will fall as rain, the exception will be some of the higher elevations where light snow will be possible. Once this round of rain clears, most of us will be done with the rain, but a few scattered showers will be possible for the rest of the evening. Areas of fog likely this evening as warm air runs over the cold snowpack. Lows will stay above freezing, but a few spots into Friday morning could fall down below freezing and some slick roads will be possible.
As the low moves into the Canadian Maritimes Friday morning, the pressure gradient will tighten and winds will pick up. Gusts out of the northwest could exceed 30 mph on Friday & will help to draw in colder air. Stronger gusts & even some flurries expected in the mountains. Highs tomorrow will occur early Friday morning and will be in the mid to upper 30s. Temperatures will fall throughout the rest of the day in the wake of a cold front. Wind chill values Friday will range from the single digits to the 20s thanks to the combination on cold & wind. Skies will be brightening through the afternoon.
The weekend overall looks to stay dry & cold. Highs for many will struggle to reach the freezing mark. A few flurries look to be possible Saturday night into Sunday morning.
Watching another low pressure by Monday. This low looks to take a similar track as the one today. This would mean warmer air gets drawn in and most of us will see rain. As of now, a mix of rain and snow will be possible in the morning followed by rain in the afternoon. It will be mild as highs on Monday will reach the 40s & 50s.
The active pattern continues later next week. Another low will bring a chance of accumulating snow Wednesday into Thursday. More details to come on this system.
