High pressure to our north will provide us with clear skies tonight. With that, it will turn very cold overnight. Lows will drop back to the single digits above and below zero for much of the state.

Our storm will be pushing through the Great Lakes region tomorrow morning. As a result, clouds will increase throughout the morning hours. It’s not until the late morning and early afternoon that snow will develop across the state. It will start as snow for the entire state and should stay snow for the duration for central and northern areas. However, near and along the coast it will likely mix with, and change to rain during the evening hours. It looks like 3-6” of snow is expected from the Bangor region and north, with 1-3” inches near the coast. Most of the precipitation will exit the state overnight Tuesday. Wednesday is shaping up to be a dry day with partly to mostly cloudy skies and highs in the 30s. High pressure builds in to our southwest on Thursday. This will usher in a northwest wind throughout the day and with that, much colder temperatures. Highs will top out in the teens for much of the state with partly cloudy skies. High pressure remains in control on Friday. We stay on the chilly side as well. Highs will top out in the 20s for much of the state.
