A few showers around for some Tuesday
A weak area of low pressure skirts by the southeast Tuesday. Precipitation amounts are generally light for most. Interior Washington County may pick up an inch of snow, with lesser amounts elsewhere. Northern Maine may get a few flakes, but clouds may be all that is seen there.
Precipitation starts in southern areas this morning, then moves northeast through midday. Precipitation ends over southern areas by around the evening rush, and ends over eastern Maine this evening, Snow showers may persist in the mountains through tonight. The ski hills may pick up an inch out of that.
A snowy Thursday
Clouds increase on Wednesday and snow beings in the wee hours of Thursday morning. Flakes overspread the state by the morning commute and will continue through the day. Snow tapers off over southern areas in time for the evening drive home. Steady snow tapers to snow showers for the rest of the state Thursday night, with the last of the flakes tapering off Friday morning.
The idea of 3-6" continues to hold on for much of the state. Ski country appears that it could do a bit better than that. Northern Maine appears likely to get half as much.
Weekend outlook: cold, with some flakes
Saturday starts off cold with most, if not all areas starting the day below zero. The arctic high quickly skirts east during the day. A weak disturbance works through the region early Sunday, which may touch off some snow shower activity, which appears to end by Sunday afternoon. Temperatures gradually modify into Sunday.
