As of noon Tuesday, a Winter Storm Warning is in effect for central, downeast and northern Maine and part of the Midcoast and a Winter Weather Advisory for southern and western Maine and a portion of the Midcoast, including Rockland and Camden, from Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday morning, said VStv Chief Meteorologist Tyler Southard.

Light ocean effect snow showers developed across the Midcoast Tuesday ahead of the main event that will arrive for the overnight. Steadier snow will move in after dark as an area of low pressure develops over the Gulf of Maine ahead of a clipper system pushing in from the west. This should be an all-snow event for most of Maine, Southard said; however mild air will nudge in along parts of the immediate coast, limiting snow totals some.

Most of the Midcoast is slated to see 2 to 6 inches of snow, with with the lower amounts on the immediate coast dependent on how much rain mixes in. Any rain will change to all snow as a heavy band moves through the area either side of midnight from west to east with accumulations of an inch per hour possible. Behind this band, colder air will move in for the second half of the night, flash-freezing any standing water for areas that saw rain. Temperatures will range between the mid-20s to mid-30s during this storm, with southeast winds between 15 to 25 mph, with gusts up to 40 mph. These will switch out of the west after midnight.

Even though less snow than originally thought is now predicted for some parts of the Midcoast, some events have been canceled.

The Knox County Democrats have postponed their meeting scheduled for Stella Maris House, 48 Broadway, Rockland, to Tuesday, Jan. 12, at 7 p.m. to Tuesday, Jan. 19, at 7 p.m. at the same location.

This story will be updated with additional cancellations as they are received.
