Semi-stationary system to only bring flurries to coastal areas
The GIF above runs from 7 PM Monday to 7 PM Tuesday and shows reflectivity by precipitation type. Yesterday's system is now residing in the Gulf of Maine. There's a chance for flurries along the coast through Tuesday. This system is expected to slowly move off of the coast through the week. This is because this system isn't on the jet stream's path so the system is slow moving.
The GIF above runs from 7 PM Monday to 7 AM Wednesday and displays temperature in Fahrenheit. Temperatures are expected to stay consistent in the low- to upper-20 degrees Fahrenheit as you go from north to south respectively. These consistent temperatures are caused by the semi-stationary low pressure system in the Gulf of Maine, which is currently bringing north/northwest winds into the state. As this low pressure begins to move away to the east from the state, a small high pressure system builds to the north and bringing slightly colder air. As this northerly high pressure system builds, fair weather is expected for the next few days with chilly air temperatures.
This upcoming weekend
The GIF above displays surface pressure for 7 AM Wednesday to 7 AM Saturday across the United States. As the current low pressure system moves easterly, a high pressure system builds to the north of Maine. This means northerly winds for Maine (and colder temperatures because of this), and fair weather. As this high pressure weakens through the week, a low pressure system originating off the coast of North Carolina on Friday will ride up the coast and appear to stay south of Maine. This is the next potentially concerning system, and we will continue to observe its path as the week progresses.
