A slow moving cold front is going to push through our region tonight and then stall just off the Maine coast on Saturday. Colder air behind the front will begin moving in on Saturday and continue flowing into our region on Sunday. A weak area of low pressure is expected to form on the stalled out front and this promises to keep plenty of clouds in our sky on Saturday with some light snowfall breaking out at times. I don't expect the snow to amount to much with totals running an inch or less. A second low is going to form on the front Saturday night and all the models agree that this one will explode into a monster storm in much the same way as last weekend's. The models do not agree on where the storm will eventually track and this will ultimately determine how much snowfall we can anticipate shoveling. The gauntlet runs from flurries to over six inches and right now I'm guessing 2-4 inches because I think we will be on the outer fringe of the system. One thing we can be sure of is a strong northerly wind on Sunday and very cold temperatures. The cold and windy weather should continue right into Monday. Another storm will be headed our way on Tuesday and may bring some light snowfall late in the day.
