BANGOR, Maine (WABI) -As the low continues to slip to the south of the region, there may be a few flurries that fly for far southern Maine. The rest of the state remains dry through tonight with mostly cloudy skies. Overnight lows drop back into the teens and single digits and winds will be out of the north at around 5-10 mph.

The beginning of the work week looks like it will remain dry and cool with temperatures slightly increasing into the low to mid 30′s by Wednesday. The pressure gradient force tightens up headed into Tuesday evening as we have an upper level-low pressure system retrograding in from the northeast on Wednesday. This brings in mostly cloudy skies and the chance for some isolated rain and snow showers, especially for far northern Maine. Winds will be out of the northwest at around 10-20 mph. We clear out on Thursday, but the dry weather won’t last long as we have another low-pressure system approaching from the south.

It’s too early to tell exact track and precipitation type but at this moment, but the storm looks to move up and along the southern New England coast and track very closely along the coast of Maine. This allows for precipitation to start as snow but turn to rain for most of southern and central Maine but holding onto snow in the northern areas. For these reasons we are issuing a first alert day for Saturday. As details come in we will continually provide you updates in the coming days.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy skies with overnight lows dropping in between 8-20.

MONDAY: Clearing skies. High temperatures reach between 25-30 with winds out of the Northwest at around 5-10 mph.

TUESDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs in the mid 20s to mid 30s. Northwest wind 10-20 mph.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy skies, potential flurries, especially northern Maine. Highs in the 30s. Northwest wind 10-20+ mph.

THURSDAY: Mostly sunny skies and warmer. High temperatures reach the upper 30′s and lower 40′s.

FRIDAY FIRST ALERT DAY: Potential rain/snow mix, highs reach the mid to upper 30′s.
