Clouds will gradually clear through Wednesday night and into Thursday as high pressure nudges in from the northwest. The return of sun will help to propel high temperatures back into the low to mid 40s. Overnight lows will range from the mid 20s to low 30s.
High clouds will begin to increase through Friday ahead of an area of low pressure that will track by to our south on Saturday bringing snow chances to the Midcoast. We will be on the colder north side of this storm with highs falling back into the 30s. Snow will begin late Friday night and continue through Saturday, heavier at times during the morning. Snow totals are still uncertain at this time with my current forecast calling for 2" to 5" across the Midcoast but these will be subject to chance as the event draws closer. The area of high pressure that brought sun for the late week will still be in place just off to our north and east and may erode some of the snow as it pushes in through Saturday. If the high is weaker or the snow storm tracks further north, we could see totals higher than the 2" to 5".
Skies will clear out into Sunday with highs back around the low 40s. We continue to warm into the mid week with highs nearing 50s as a rain storm moves in late Tuesday and into Wednesday.
Check back for updates through the week.
