Wet snow moves in tonight mixing with rain Sunday
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Skies have clouded over as our next storm system makes its approach from the southwest. Snow will start in southern Maine early this evening and push into the Bangor region and Downeast by around 8 pm. Snow will continue through the night and into the day on Sunday. Precipitation will start off as snow for the coastline and inland locations. However, as the low-pressure system transfers to the Gulf of Maine and moves over DownEast Maine, it will usher in some warmer air and change snow to mix and rain along the coastline early Sunday morning. Some snow may even mix with rain through Bangor come Sunday morning as well. Mixing will keep snow totals a bit lower Downeast and in the Bangor region compared to up north, where precipitation will stay all snow. The low will continue to push into the Maritimes Sunday afternoon and evening. Precipitation will taper off through the afternoon for the Bangor region and DownEast but linger across northern Maine as snow showers. Snow showers will come to an end, up north, Sunday evening. Accumulations will be light to moderate, with the heaviest snow accumulations being across Millinocket, Greenville, in the mountains, and Aroostook County where 4-8″ is expected. Accumulations through the Bangor region and along I-95 will be around 2-4″, with 2″ or less along the coast where snow will change to rain. Winds will also be gusting out of the ENE up to 35 mph late Saturday night and into Sunday morning. A FIRST ALERT will be in effect on Sunday for INLAND areas only. High temperatures on Sunday reach the mid to upper 30′s.
