Storm pulls away, north country sees flakes continue; breezy everywhere
The storm moves into Atlantic Canada overnight and a cold front slides through the region as we head into Monday. Snow showers appear possible for the mountains and north through the day, ending in the wee hours of Tuesday. Accumulations of an inch or two in areas are possible.
It will be a breezy night for DownEast areas where the National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory. Wind speeds may gust upwards of 45 mph for Penobscot Bay east. After the cold front passes through, wind out of the west appears steady statewide at 15-25 mph with higher gusts possible for the mountains. The breeze continues through the day on Tuesday with speeds diminishing.
Rain likely everywhere Friday
The rest of the week appears dry until we approach Friday. High pressure shifts eastward and a southwest flow pumps warmer air into the region. Rain showers break out ahead of a cold front on Friday. Temperatures appear to fall back a bit as we head into the weekend, with snow showers possible for the mountains and north on Saturday.
Regional outlook through Friday
Temperatures will be on a bit of a roller coaster ride as we head through the week. It will me a mild day on Monday before the mercury settles back through the middle part of the week. With the southwest flow developing on Thursday, all areas appear likely to reach the 40s with southern and eastern areas flirting with the 50s to round out the work week.
Outside of some snow showers next weekend, no impactful snow appears in sight through the middle part of next week.
