Weather Brief Jan 16, 2020

Midcoast Forecast - January 16, 2020 AM

After two rounds of light snow so far this week, a third heavier round is moving through Thursday.

An area of low pressure will move through the Gulf of Maine from west to east on Thursday. We'll see snow fill in across the Midcoast from west to east leading up to sunrise Thursday and continue through the day before coming to an end early Thursday night.

Snow totals will range between 2" to 5", lowest for coastal islands and peninsulas, with a swath of 4" to 8" possible north of our coastal counties and parts of Downeast Maine.

Winds will be fairly light Thursday morning, but pick up late in the day from north and northwest as a blast of cold air moves in. We'll see highs on Thursday in the upper 20's to low 30's with lows dropping into the single digits to near 0 by early Friday with wind chill values of -5 to -15. We'll see highs on Friday only reaching the low teens despite sunny skies with wind chill values holding near or below 0.

Another winter storm will follow for the weekend with snow beginning Saturday night and continuing into Sunday morning, mixing with rain at times along the coast. This storm has the potential of greater snow accumulation than our Thursday storm. We'll see temperatures rebound back into the 30s on Sunday followed by a sunny but colder stretch for the early week.
