Central and Southern Maine Weather


SUN RETURNS SATURDAY

Who is missing yesterday’s highs in the mid-50s.  Today’s storm was an over performer with many communities reporting between 5 and 9” of snow.  It’s a far cry from the original forecast from two days ago when it looked like we would get just a glancing blow. In a nutshell, this storm tracked a little bit closer to the coast than originally anticipated which resulted in higher snow totals.   Regardless, the back edge of the snow is moving through southern and central Maine early this evening. Any leftover snow will be moving out between 5PM and 8PM. That’s going to set the stage for a clear night and partly sunny day Saturday. Saturday looks to be a nice start to the weekend with highs making into the 30s. A cold front may touch off a brief snow shower on Sunday and that chance is greatest inland and mountains. Sunday looks to be the warmer of the two days this weekend with highs in the low 40s.  Colder air will arrive Sunday night. By Monday highs will struggle to get out of the low 20s.  Expect mainly cloudy skies that day.  Our weather pattern will remain active through mid-week with the chance for more light snow beginning Monday night.  More accumulations are possible Tuesday but based on today’s forecast, I’m not convinced the track is idea for a big one.  It’s something to keep an eye on.  Most of the extended forecast looks cold with lows near zero returning by late next week.
