Snow & Mix North This Afternoon, Mix & Rain Elsewhere
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - The messy weather will continue this afternoon as low pressure moves along the Maine coastline. We’ll see rain for coastal areas, mixed precipitation and rain inland then areas further north, Greenville to Millinocket northward, will stay mainly snow with a slight chance for some sleet or freezing rain to mix in this afternoon. There will be a wide range in temperatures from the 30s for most of us to the 40s to near 50° closer to the coast. We’ll have a gusty east/northeast wind too with gusts to 25-30 MPH possible. Snow, mix and rain will wind down early tonight as the storm moves off to our east. Skies will turn partly cloudy as the night wears on. Temperatures will drop to the mid-20s to low 30s for overnight lows. Storm total snowfall accumulations will be little to nothing along the coast; a coating to an inch or two for inland areas; 2″-5″ just north of Bangor; and 5″-8″ from the western mountains through Jackman, Greenville, Millinocket and Houlton. Some higher amounts of 10-11″ will be possible over Northern Aroostook County.
Thursday looks like a mainly dry day. We’ll see a good deal of clouds sticking around with some breaks of sunshine mixed in from time to time. An upper level disturbance moving through could give northern areas and the mountains a few snow showers during the day. Temperatures will be in the mid-30s to low 40s. Upper level low pressure spinning over Hudson Bay will keep plenty of clouds across the area Friday with some breaks of sunshine mixed in again. A weak disturbance wrapping around the upper low could bring some snow showers to northern areas and the mountains Friday too but overall it looks to be mainly dry. Friday’s highs will be in the mid-30s to low 40s. Saturday looks brighter with partly to mostly sunny skies expected. We’ll remain cool with highs in the 30s to around 40°. We’ll be keeping an eye on developing low pressure forecast to pass offshore Sunday. Most of the data keeps the storm offshore but some of the data brings it close enough to graze Downeast parts of the state with some snow or mix Sunday. We’ll keep you posted.
