Mild tonight with mostly cloudy skies, an active weather pattern sets up for next week
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - A weak low pressure system passing to the north of us, over Quebec, brings the chance for some flurries north and drizzle DownEast. Tonight there will be mostly cloudy skies with low temperatures on the mild side, only dropping into the 30′s across the state. Winds will be out of the south at around 5-10 mph.
The weak low pressure will eventually drag a cold front through the state on Monday afternoon. The front will conjure up some scattered rain and snow showers north and some light rain showers DownEast during the afternoon and evening. Ahead of the frontal passage, high temperatures on Monday warm up significantly above average; reaching the mid to upper 30′s north and into the 40′s along DownEast. We dry out on Tuesday with partly cloudy skies and highs in the 20′s north and 30′s DownEast. Tuesday night a weak low-pressure system crosses the state bringing in scattered snow showers that linger into early Wednesday morning. Snow showers dissipate by the time we wake up Wednesday morning. Accumulations will be light expect a coating to 3″ across the state. For the rest of the day Wednesday, there will be partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies. High temperatures reach the 20′s and 30′s.
We are keeping an eye on another system Thursday & Friday. This system looks to bring a decent shot at some substantial snowfall. While there is still much uncertainty with that system, it looks like the majority of us will stay all snow for duration of that event. Snow looks to begin Thursday morning and continue through Friday afternoon. Due to the potential of a long duration, moderate to heavy snowfall event we have issued a FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY for Thursday and Friday. However, any shift in the track will greatly impact how much snow we see. We’ll continue to keep you updated as more data becomes available.
