Snow Tapers Off This Afternoon, Sunshine Returns Saturday
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Light snow will taper to snow showers this afternoon as low pressure moves away from the area. Any additional accumulation will be an inch or less. Highs will be in the mid-20s to low 30s. Any lingering snow showers will move out this evening followed by mostly cloudy skies becoming partly cloudy after midnight. Overnight lows will be colder with temperatures dropping to the teens to near 20°.
Drier weather returns as we head into the weekend. High pressure builds in for Saturday bringing us a mix of sun and clouds. High temperatures on Saturday will be in the mid-20s to low 30s. Sunday looks good too but will feature more clouds as high pressure slides to our east. Morning sunshine will give way to increasing clouds Sunday with highs climbing to the 30s for most spots. A more significant storm is forecast to impact our area Sunday Night into Monday as strengthening low pressure moves from the Mid-Atlantic Region northeastward through the Gulf of Maine. The exact track of the storm will determine precipitation types. Right now it looks like snow for the northern half of the state, snow and mixed precipitation for inland locales then mixed precipitation and rain for coastal areas. Strong, gusty winds will be possible with this system as well. Still some uncertainty with regard to speed and track of the system so stay tuned for updates as we get closer. Looks like we’ll get a brief break between storms on Tuesday with another storm bringing the potential for snow and mix later Wednesday through Thursday.
