BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - A weak low-pressure system tracking to the south of us, over the Mid-Atlantic, will bring the chance for some isolated flurries along the coast this evening. Otherwise, tonight will remain calm weather-wise. Tonight, there will be partly cloudy skies and overnight low temperatures dropping into the single digits and teens below zero north and into the single digits above zero DownEast. Winds will be light and variable.

High pressure slips off over the Gulf of Maine for Sunday. This will allow for some increasing clouds through the day. Then, a clipper system moves in from west to east across the state. As the system crosses the state, we’ll be dealing with light snow beginning in western Maine during the late morning hours and moving into the Bangor region by around noon. Snow continues into the evening and tapers off overnight. Accumulations will be light, expect a coating to 2″ for most of the state and a pocket of 2-5″ along the DownEast coast. High temperatures on Sunday will be slightly warmer than today, climbing into the teens north and 20′s DownEast.

A general coating to 2" is expected for much of the state, with a pocket of 2-5" possible along...

An active weather pattern resumes for next week. High pressure builds to the north of the state, briefly, on Monday keeping the weather tame. Monday will be partly to mostly cloudy with high temperatures reaching the low 20′s north and mid to upper 20′s DownEast. Then, on Tuesday we are tracking our next potential snow maker. As of right it looks like we will be sandwiched between two low pressure systems. One system will be off to the northwest of the state, over Hudson Bay, while the other passes to the southeast, off the mid-Atlantic coast. Depending on how close the two low pressures get to each other will determine how much snowfall we see. If they stay closer together, we’ll get higher snowfall totals, if farther apart, less snowfall totals. As of right now, snowfall amounts are uncertain. We’ll continue to keep you updated on that threat as more data becomes available. Wednesday high pressure builds in for the day, keeping things settled, briefly. Another chance for snow moves in on Thursday.
