A stationary front ran right through the heart of Maine Friday. South of the front temperatures were quite mild with a few afternoon showers. North of the front it snowed most of the day. This front is not expected to move much over the next 24 hours with weak impulses coming through from time to time kicking off periods of rain in the south with snow or sleet to the north. Most of southern Maine and New Hampshire will remain on the warm side of the front tonight and Saturday but temperatures will still cool down enough at night to make for some slippery driving in spots. On Saturday temperatures will climb above freezing again. The front is expected to sink southward late Saturday night so that by Sunday morning most of our region will be on the cold side. The cold air will only be in the lower levels of the atmosphere however. Higher up it will still be above freezing and this promises to make for an extended period of freezing rain or freezing drizzle late Saturday night into Sunday as an area of low pressure moves our way. This could lead to downed tree limbs and power lines. The low will move away from us on Monday and in its wake drier and much colder air can be expected for Tuesday and Wednesday.
