Breezy & Cold Overnight. Next System Moves In Friday Afternoon
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - High pressure will pass to our south overnight keeping skies mostly clear. Winds will continue to gust out of the NW up to 30 mph through the first half of the night before tapering off after midnight.
Overnight lows will drop into the teens & 20s but with the wind it will continue to feel like it is in the single digits and teens.
Another area of high pressure to our south on Friday will bring mostly sunny skies. Highs will range from the 30s to the low 40s. Clouds will increase later in the day ahead of our next low which will bring the chance for snow starting around sunset.
Our next system will move in starting Friday night. Winds will increase Friday evening and snow will move into the mountains with rain from the foothills towards the coast. The snow will eventually change over to all rain during the day Saturday as highs reach the upper 40s and low 50s. SSW winds on Saturday will gust up to 35 mph. Any rainfall should come to an end by early Sunday morning. Rainfall totals will range from 0.25″ to just over 0.75″.
