Sweet Wednesday! Freezing rain in the late morning followed by rain

0

BANGOR, ME (WABI) – The high pressure continues to move toward the Atlantic, losing its grip on the region. This allowed the cloud cover from the north to expand towards the coast. This will be the case for the rest of the night. Mostly cloudy to overcast skies. The lows will be in the teens and the 20s.

A disturbance moving northeast along the east coast will bring our next rush of precipitation late Wednesday morning. Cold surface air north and west of I-95 will pose a threat of freezing rain that could produce ice icing. Along, south and east of I-95, surface temperatures will be warm enough to expect rain. Showers will continue into the early evening and gradually end from west to east. Mild temperatures tomorrow with highs in the 30’s halfway up north to 40 halfway up the highway to the coast. Winds will be southerly at around 10-25 mph.

Freezing rain window late Wednesday morning for areas north and west of I-95. Light ice will be possible, creating some slippery roads.(WABI)

From Wednesday evening to Thursday morning, a depression emerging from the Great Lakes will slide towards our north. This will bring the potential for light snow to northern regions. The accumulations for the most part will be less than an inch. Clouds will subside for Thursday with highs in the 1930s.

I’m still monitoring the potential for snow accumulation by Friday. A FIRST DAY WEATHER ALERT has been issued for the potential. The models have agreed more that there will be snow on Friday. The heaviest snow at present is expected from the Midcoast regions towards Downeast. The snow will be lighter and less intense the further inland you go. Some places in the mountains may only see snow showers. Still some uncertainty with the exact trail and placement of the heaviest snow. More updates to come in the next few days.

The heaviest snow and highest totals are expected for the coast and particularly in parts of the Downeast regions. The lighter the snow, the further north and west you go. The snowfall map will be available on Wednesday.(WABI)
