Due to increased demands with family and work related reasons is as to why I have been rather quiet as of late. I am doing the best I can to stay on top of analyzing data for the forecast and will update either here, on Facebook or Twitter when I have time to. I appreciate your understanding and patience as I work through this.
Light snow for southern areas Monday
A storm passes to the south of New England on Monday. Southern and central areas of Maine will be on the fringe of the precipitation shield, and the result will be some light snowfall. Southern areas may see a few flakes fly for the morning commute, but accumulation holds off until mid-morning.
The snow ends for most by early evening.
Fryeburg to Portland south could pick up a couple inches from this during the day, with lesser amounts to the north and east. Not a lot of snow, but enough to create some slick spots in areas.
Northern areas can take the day off, with some clouds around, but not much else.
Wind chill through midweek
After the storm passes to the east Monday night, arctic air returns for a visit for a couple of days. Tuesday appears breezy all day, and into Wednesday night.
Wednesday morning starts off similarly. The breeze begins to settle from the northwest in the morning, and then pick up out of the southwest ahead of our next event coming in on Thursday.
Thursday looks messy
Thursday appears to be a snowy one for most areas, with snow on the roads to start the day for most areas. For now, the preliminary idea is for a 3-6" snowfall statewide with some mixing possible along the coast. This is subject to change. I will provide updates on this as the week unfolds.
Outlook through Friday
Northern areas step back into the deep freeze for the next several mornings. Thursday's storm brings in slightly warmer temperatures for Friday. Another storm is possible for Sunday into Monday next week.
I am going through a busy time right now. Keep watch on my Twitter feed and Facebook in case this page is silent.
