Weather Brief Jan 04, 2019

Midcoast Forecast - January 4, 2019

Clouds will continue to build in through Saturday as low pressure approaches from the southwest. This will bring a round of rain showers Saturday during the late afternoon and into the night as temperatures hold above freezing with rain tapering off Sunday morning. There may be some snow further inland where temperatures will be cooler with rain briefly changing to snow at the coast late in the night. We'll see some clearing on Sunday with a brief period of light snow possible as high pressure moves in from the west for Monday.

Monday will start off sunny but clouds will increase late in the day as another storm system moves in from the west for Tuesday followed by a second round on Wednesday. There are still questions about the timing, intensity, and precipitation type with these two storms with temperatures hovering either side of the freezing mark. My current thoughts as of Friday is for a round of snow Tuesday morning changing to rain south of Bangor and Augusta during the afternoon followed by a break overnight. The second round Wednesday will start as rain during the morning then change to a round of snow as the storm exits Wednesday afternoon. Northern Maine could see around a foot of snow during this time with 3" to 6" for the Midcoast with some of that melting during periods of rain. We'll clear out for the late week with temperatures dropping.
