It's going to be another very cold night with lows in the single digits for most. Some of the colder spots will fall below zero. It will start out clear, but clouds will increase and thicken after midnight.
Monday will be a cloudy day with periods of light snow. The early morning commute should be dry in most areas. Snow showers will move in during the morning, from west to east. There may be a few steadier bursts of snow from midday through the afternoon. Temperatures will be cold enough for the snow to accumulate easily. Most places will see a fluffy coating to an inch or two of snow. There are some indications the Midcoast area has the highest chance of a couple of inches of snow. Any snow showers will come to an end during the late afternoon and early evening.
Southern Maine will have a brief warm-up Tuesday as a warm front lifts through. Temperatures will rise into the low 40s with breaks of sun. The front will be located over northern Maine where snow showers are expected during the day, highs in the mountains and north will be in the 30s.
Everyone turns colder and windy on Wednesday as a cold front passes through. Upslope snow showers are expected in the mountains. High pressure builds overhead Thursday. It will be a bright but very cold day with highs only in the 20s.
By the end of the week, the forecast is more uncertain. Cold air will be in place to start, but milder air will attempt to move in as a storm tracks to our west. Right now it looks like some light snow or a light mix will develop late in the day on Friday, probably transitioning to rain on Saturday. We may have a break on Sunday before another system tries to develop early next week. Follow updates on this over the next several days.
