BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - The storm that brought the snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain to Maine last night and today will continue to slide northeast towards Newfoundland tonight. Northern and parts of central Maine saw significant snow and sleet accumulations, while it was just a bit too warm from the Bangor Region on south to see the expected freezing rain that had been predicted.
As the storm continues to pull away weak high pressure will bring a clearing trend to Maine tonight, with a partly sunny sky expected across Maine tomorrow. A weak upper level disturbance may trigger a few late day and evening snow showers across Maine, but any accumulations will likely be minor, with an inch or less expected. High temps tomorrow will run in the 20s to near 30, which is seasonable for mid-January.
Another bubble of high pressure will bring Maine a partly sunny Tuesday, with temps running in the 20s to low 30s. A weak storm crossing the Northeast will likely bring a period of light snow to Maine later Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning. At this time it appears any accumulations will likely range from a coating to a few inches. The sky will likely turn partly cloudy later Wednesday morning once any light snow and mixed precipitation come to an end, with afternoon temps running a few to several degrees above normal.
A somewhat stronger storm may bring a period of steadier snow to Maine part of Thursday. A much colder air-mass building over central Canada will likely sweep into Maine for the tail end of the workweek, with high temps Friday likely ranging from the single numbers north to the teens south.
Tonight: Becoming partly cloudy, with a diminishing northwest breeze and low temps in the single numbers north and teens south.
Monday: Partly to mostly cloudy, with a light north breeze and high temps in the 20s.
Tuesday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the mid-20s to low 30s.
Wednesday: Possible early snow showers then partly sunny, with high temps in the 30s to near 40.
Thursday: Mostly cloudy, a period of snow and mixed precipitation likely, with high temps in the mid-20s to low 30s.
Friday: Bright, breezy and cold, with high temps in the single numbers north and teens south.
