BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - A few light flurries remain. Partly to mostly cloudy skies should be expected for the rest of the night with lows that will range from 10-20°. Northerly winds at 5-15 mph.

Brighter and drier conditions expected for the first half of the weekend as high pressure builds in. Mostly sunny skies for Saturday with afternoon highs that will be mostly below freezing. By Sunday, clouds will move into the region ahead of our next approaching storm. Highs will reach the low to mid 30s.

Our active weather pattern will continue into next week. Watching another low-pressure system for Sunday night into Monday. This storm will be highly track dependent as a more northerly track will mean a warmer/rain event where a southerly track will mean a colder/snow event. As it stands right now, it looks like a more southerly track will be favored. This would mean areas away from the coast would see wet heavy snow. Snowfall totals look to be the highest for areas from the Foothills towards I-95. Communities along the coast would have a mix of rain and snow.

Another round of snow coming our way Sunday night through Monday. Wet heavy snow is expected...

Conditions will improve by Tuesday with a breeze in the morning followed by afternoon sunshine and highs near freezing.
