Accumulations generally light
A weak frontal boundary crosses the northern half of the region Thursday night and brings some light snow along with it. Precipitation kicks into gear this evening and works into northeastern areas in the wee hours of Friday. It will be over and done with in western zones about that time. Steadier snow activity give way to snow showers by mid-morning over eastern Aroostook, and end by around noon. This may cause a few slick spots across The County early in the morning, but will improve through midday.
Higher elevations end up with the higher amounts. Clean up may be optional with this one as temperatures rise above freezing Friday.
Stormy Sunday and Monday
A warm front moves into the region Sunday. Old friend cold air damming may have a say in who gets what for precipitation type and amount over interior areas, however. The warm front appears to hit a road block and stalls out over the region, and hangs out over the region until the parent low over Quebec transfers energy to a coastal low, then the precipitation fizzles out as the coastal low moves eastward. The western mountains, northern areas over to northern Washington County are likely to plow and shovel this one. Time will tell how this plays out for the western foothills across central areas and the interior DownEast region. Southern & MidCoast shoreline areas appear to escape this one with raindrops only.
I will update on this on Friday.
