Today is the calm before the storm. Low pressure will move up the eastern seaboard tomorrow and spread snow through the state through the day. There is still the question of how far inland the rain/snow line will move. Right now it looks like the coast could see a period of mixed precipitation and rain along with the snow. The storm intensifies late Thursday into Thursday night as the low moves into Gulf of Maine. Storm exits through Friday morning for southern locations. Northern Maine will finally see the storm come to an end late in the day. The weekend looks quiet aside from some snow showers Saturday.
This Afternoon - Sunny skies, light winds, and highs in the 20s.
Tonight - Increasing clouds with lows in the teens and single digits.
Thursday - The leading edge of light snow arrives in southern Maine during the morning hours. The precipitation spreads north through the day and intensifies during the afternoon. Warm air will try to move into the area and we could see a period of mixed precipitation and rain late in the day. Best chance for that will be at the coast. Winds will pick up through the day and remain strong during the overnight. Due to the possibility of mixed precip, the coast may see lower amounts of snow, but inland locations stand the chance of seeing around a foot or more. I have posted the predicted snowfall amounts in the graphics section.
Extended Forecast - Storm exits southern Maine through Friday morning. Northern and eastern Maine will see precipitation taper and end during the afternoon. Clouds hang around Saturday with the chance of snow showers. Brighter skies and chilly temps Sunday.
