As you get closer to the Interstate there is a better chance for rain showers. Once the warm front passes, temperatures will begin to rise causing any snow showers to change over to light rain showers. Locations north of Greenville & Millinocket will stay cold enough to support snow for the duration of the event. All precipitation will come to an end before sunrise Saturday morning.

Snowfall totals will be light with areas along I-95 and interior Downeast expecting less than an inch and will more than likely be washed away by the rain showers. For the Central Highlands and the Foothills, 1-2″. North of Greenville & Millinocket should expect the most as 2-4″ could fall.
