Zonal pattern continues
The ebb and flow of a zonal pattern continues for the state through the remainder of the week. As the storm that brought the region an early spring snow moves to the east, high pressure settles in for Wednesday. Looking to the southwest, a storm moves off the Mid-Atlantic region. High pressure over Maine keeps most of the moisture associated with that to south. Coastal areas may see some clouds, and far southern areas a light rain shower, but that is about it. The storm moves south of Nova Scotia on Thursday.
As that storm curls into the Gulf of St Lawrence, and inverted trough behind it may bring some light snow to western, eastern and northern areas Thursday night into Friday. Higher elevations and the Allagash region may pick up an inch of snow, with lesser amounts elsewhere. The region will feel that storm into the weekend as a breezy west/northwest air flow persists.
At this point, our next chance for widespread precipitation appears possible Sunday into Monday. At this point, it could be a mixed bag of rain, snow and sleet. I will update more on this later in the week.
