Perfect Travel Conditions Again Wednesday
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Clouds continue to move in from the northwest as a cold front approaches the region. This front will also bring the chance of scattered snow showers in the mountains into Wednesday morning. Overnight lows will range from the upper teens north to the low 30s along the coastline.
The rest of Wednesday will have partly cloudy skies with light snow showers in the mountains. Highs will reach the 30s & 40s.
By Thanksgiving, a Canadian high pressure will move into the region bringing mostly sunny, but cold conditions. Highs will hover at if not below freezing.
A more active and warmer pattern is expected after Thanksgiving. Temperatures in the 40s and expected through the weekend with some areas trying for close to 50° by Saturday and Sunday. For Friday, a cold front will cross the region and will bring the chance for snow in the mountains, rain along the coast and a mix of rain and snow in between. Snowfall totals will be light with the mountains expected around 1-3″.
Saturday will be dry and mostly cloudy. A stronger low will move along the coast Sunday afternoon and into Monday morning. The current track of the low combined with the mild temperatures will result in a mostly rain event.
