Snow Has Ended. More On The Way Wednesday Night
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - The snow has cleared the region and the rest of the night will have some partial clearing and lows that will range from 15-25°. It will remain breezy overnight with northwest winds gusting up to 30 mph. This will continue to produce areas of blowing snow into early Tuesday morning.
By Tuesday, it will still be breezy as westerly winds will gust up to 25 mph. With the fresh snowpack, this will continue to produce some blowing snow. Expect a mixture of sun & clouds with a few light snow showers across the far north. Highs will range from just below freezing over the north to the upper 30s closer to the coast. Be prepared for a cold night Tuesday and into early Wednesday as lows will drop down into the single digits and teens.
Clouds will build back into the region on Wednesday ahead of our next approaching low that will move in late Wednesday and will last into Thursday. Highs on Wednesday will be mostly in the 20s. During the onset of the precipitation, expect all snow with some areas dealing with moderate to heavy snowfall into the early morning hours on Thursday. Warm air will push in on the backside of the low after sunrise Thursday. This will cause areas along south & east of I-95 to change from snow to sleet then to all rain. Communities north & west of I-95 will go from snow to a wintry mix and locations over the far north will stay as snow.
The highest snowfall totals will be in the mountains where up to a foot of snowfall will be possible. Totals will taper off quickly as you move towards the coast where an inch or two of snow is likely.
Highs on Thursday will be mild with afternoon highs ranging from the mid 30s to the mid 40s. Temperatures will come crashing down by Friday with highs in the 20s. This could potentially result in anything wet freezing over quickly. Friday will be dry with mostly sunny skies. Quiet conditions stick around through the weekend.
