Midcoast Forecast - January 8, 2018

Tuesday started out as a winter wonderland as light snow fell across the Midcoast with most spots picking up 1" to 3" of fresh snow. It didn;t stay fresh long as snow changed to rain during the afternoon melting some of the new snow into a slush. We'll see rounds of light to moderate rain continue through the early night with temperatures hovering above the freezing mark to near 40 along the coast. Rain will taper off briefly during the late night and pick up once again as low pressure continues to approach into Wednesday morning. As the center of the low moves into Downeast Maine and the Candadian maritime during the afternoon, cold air will move in from the north changing rain briefly to snow all the way to the coast before precipitation comes to an end during the early night. This final wave of snow could bring a coating to 2" of additional snow to the Midcoast.

Clouds will linger on Thursday with clearing overnight and into Friday as high pressure builds in from the west. This high will pull in bitter cold air for the end of the week and into the weekend with lows dipping down either side of 0 with highs in the teens and low 20s. The cold air will set the stage for another chance of snow late Sunday and into Monday but it currently appears that this storm will miss us just to our south.
