Quiet tonight, light to moderate snow moves into the region Sunday afternoon
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - High pressure builds into Quebec tonight leaving us with mostly clear to partly cloudy skies. Clouds begin to increase late tonight into tomorrow morning. Low temperatures drop into the single digits and teens inland, and down into the 20′s along the coast.
Sunday, clouds begin to increase from the west as a weak low-pressure system begins to track across the state. Light to moderate snow begins to work into the Bangor area by late morning and early afternoon. With this low taking a more northerly track, areas along the coast may only see a dusting of snow before southerly winds usher in warm air and rain showers. Those rain showers look to make their way into the Bangor region by around 4 P.M. Locations north of Dover-Foxcroft look to stay all snow through the duration of this event. Snow fall accumulations are expected to be generally light, with a dusting along the coast and up to an inch or less for the Bangor region and along the interstate. Just north of Bangor up toward Dover-Foxcroft expect around 1-3″, then north of Dover-Foxcroft, where all snow is expected, could see 3-6″ of fluffy accumulation. This low-pressure system moves out relatively quickly, and we begin to dry out Sunday night, with the bulk of the precipitation ending by 10 pm. High temperatures on Sunday reach the upper 20′s across northern Maine, and mid-30′s to the 40′s closer to the coast.
Monday, we dry out with partly cloudy skies and high temperatures in the teens and 20′s inland, and lower 30′s along the coast. Some light and isolated snow showers are possible late Monday night. A ridge of high pressure builds in along the east coast and keeps us quiet for the rest of next week. Temperatures continue to cool through the middle of next week with highs in the low to mid 20′s. Some more snow showers are possible on Thursday.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy to mostly clear skies, lows drop into the single digits and teens inland, and the 20′s along the coast.
SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy skies, light to moderate snow, snow changes to rain along the coast and into the Bangor region. Highs reach the 20′s north, with temperatures in the upper 30′s to low 40′s DownEast. Winds will be out of the south at around 5-15 mph.
