Midcoast Forecast - April 8, 2019 PM

After enjoying a mild spring weekend with a good deal of sunshine and highs in the 50s and 60s, winter is back with us to start off the week. Cold air settled in across Maine Sunday night ahead of an area of low pressure exiting the Great Lakes and pushing east with a slug of moisture. This has led to widespread snowfall across the state with occasional mix with rain along the coast and far southwest Maine with temperatures running either side of freezing from the upper 20s north to upper 30s far south. This will lead to 2" to 4" of accumulation for the Midcoast with totals of 4" to 8" possible for locations north of a line stretching from around Belfast to Augusta. Snow and rain mix will come to and end during the evening and early night followed by partial clearing into Tuesday morning.

Our spring snow pattern will continue Tuesday with cold air remaining locked in through the day with highs mainly in the 30s across Maine. This will set the stage for another storm that will move in from the west along a similar track of our Monday storm but will have a little less punch. Snow will begin during the evening and early night and continue at a light clip until early Wednesday morning. This will amount to an additional 1" to 3" for most Midcoast locations. Skies will gradually clear through Wednesday with some sun returning for the afternoon. Sunshine will hold strong on Thursday allowing for temperatures to climb into the 40s to near 50 during the afternoon.

The milder air will hold in as we wrap up the week and head into the weekend setting the stage for a round of spring showers as a cold front sweeps in from the west. Rain will develop Friday afternoon and continue through the overnight before clearing early Saturday morning. Just like our previous weekend, this next one will feature a good deal of sunshine with highs in the 50s and low 60s.
