Snow showers linger tonight, more on the way next week
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Snow showers will linger tonight especially along the coast. After the clipper system has moved over the Gulf of Maine and into the Atlantic, clouds will begin to decrease. Winds will be northeasterly at around 5-15 mph. Overnight lows drop into the single digits below zero north and into the single digits to low teens DownEast.
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 mostly cloudy with high temperatures reaching the low 20′s north and low 30′s DownEast. Then, on Tuesday we are tracking our next potential snow maker. The setup looks like we will be sandwiched between two low pressure systems. One system will be off to the northwest of the state, 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 accumulations will be moderate, with 1-3″ from the crown of Maine to the Katahdin region, then 3-5″ from Millinocket down through the Bangor region, and 5-8″ from Lewiston down to Portland. There are still some details that need to be ironed out and we’ll continue to keep you updated on that threat as more data becomes available. Snow showers linger into Wednesday morning then taper off for the afternoon. High pressure builds in for the rest of the day, keeping things settled, briefly. More snow moves in Thursday, possibly mixing with some rain along the coast. Then more snow is possible Friday night into Saturday.
