Quiet start to the week, wintry mess Wednesday
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) -A weak frontal boundary will continue to push in from the west for the rest of the evening. Isolated snow and rain showers may continue on and off for the first half of the night before drying out overnight. Expect partly cloudy skies with overnight lows dropping into the lower 20′s north and the mid to upper 20′s Downeast. Winds will also increase out of the west/northwest around 5-15 mph with gust up to 25 mph.
The weather will stay on the quieter side for the beginning of the work week. Expect partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies on Monday with highs reaching the lower 30′s north and mid to upper 30′s Downeast. Winds will also be gusty out of the northwest between 25-30 mph. Cooler temperatures and gusty winds will make it feel much colder. Wind chills values look to hover around the teens and 20′s all day long. Tuesday will be similar to Monday with highs mostly in the 30′s and good amount of sunshine. Clouds will increase Tuesday night ahead of our next weather maker.
As of right now, a low pressure system is forecast move northeastward from the Great Lakes while a secondary area of low pressure begins to form off the coast of southern New England. Temperatures will be cold for precipitation to start off as all snow away from the coastline early Wednesday morning. Then, warmer air will be pumped in from the south, changing snow to a mix then rain for the southern half of the state, through Wednesday afternoon. The northern half of the state may stay cold enough to sustain all snow. However, models are still at odds with one another, especially when it comes to totals and when precipitation comes to an end. There may be a few lingering snow and rain showers Thursday morning before drying out the rest of the day. Stay tuned for the latest updates.
