BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Low pressure will pass to our south during the day today. The steadiest/heaviest precipitation has already fallen across our area during the overnight and early this morning. Drier air is forecast to move into the mid-levels of the atmosphere this morning which will cause the steadier snow and wintry mix to become lighter and more scattered in nature by mid-late morning. We’ll then continue to see cloudy skies and the chance for some off and on light snow or wintry mix through the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will be in the 20s across the north and upper 20s to mid-30s elsewhere. Total snowfall accumulations by evening will be light with less than 1″ expected for areas south of Dover-Foxcroft and Lincoln, 1″-3″ for much of the rest of the state from Dover-Foxcroft to Lincoln northward and slightly higher amounts of 3″-6″ for Northern and Central Somerset County as well as Northern and Central Piscataquis County. Skies will remain cloudy through the night tonight with snow showers possible. Lows will remain in the 20s to near 30°, warmest towards the coast.
