Mostly clear tonight, seasonable with a mix of sun and clouds Monday
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Clouds and snow showers clear out this evening and into tonight, becoming partly cloudy to mostly clear. Overnight lows will also be chilly, dropping all the way into the teens. Winds will still be breezy out of the west gusting up to 30 mph.
High pressure builds in for the start of the work week. Monday, the first day of Spring, will have a mix of sun and clouds with the chance for some more isolated snow showers across far northern Maine in the afternoon, but the rest of the state will stay dry. Winds will still be breezy out of the west, gusting up to 30 mph. Highs on Monday will be right around average, reaching the upper 30′s north and lower 40′s for the Bangor region and Downeast. A piece of shortwave energy moving over northern Maine on Tuesday may prompt some clouds and isolated rain/snow showers north. Highs on Tuesday will be in the upper 30′s north and lower 40′s through the Bangor region and Downeast. Wednesday High pressure continues to sit over the state keeping the weather quiet, with highs in the 30′s and 40′s.
Our next system moves in Thursday. A low pressure system will cut over the Great Lakes region and move north of the state. This will bring in the chance for snow showers north and rain through the Bangor region and Downeast. Then we have to keep an eye on another system building over the southern plains and moving into the Ohio river valley. If the storm pushes north of the state, from there, we can expect rain. However, if it stays south and moves over southern New England, we may have some snow on our hands.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy to mostly clear skies, winds out of the west at around 10 –20 mph, gusting up to 35 mph.
MONDAY: First day of Spring, mix of sun and clouds, highs reach the upper 30′s and lower 40′s. Winds out of the west at around 5-15 mph, gusting up to 30 mph.
