Weather Brief Feb 11, 2019

Midcoast Forecast - February 11, 2019

Our week is off to a cold and quiet start Monday with high pressure in place over the region providing sunshine while continuing to pump in chilly air. The high temperatures we saw Monday in the 20s will dip back into the single digits overnight under mostly clear skies by early Tuesday morning setting the stage for an incoming winter storm.

Clouds will quickly increase Tuesday morning becoming overcast for much of the day as broad low pressure tracks in from the west through the southern Great Lakes. The first snowflakes will arrive between 7pm and 10pm from west to east across the Midcoast and quickly ramp up as we approach midnight. Snow will continue through the night with the bulk of the forecast snow on the ground by sunrise Wednesday. Mild air will nose in along the coast through Wednesday morning changing snow to sleet and some rain before precipitation tapers off through the afternoon. The Midcoast will pick up between 6" to 12" with the lower amounts near the coast where mixing and melting will take place. The storm will gradually pull out through late Wednesday with some snow lingering for northern Maine.

We'll see a break in the action on Thursday with a mix of sun and clouds and temperatures holding in the 30s. Another storm will move in from the west on Friday bringing a quick shot of winter mix before changing to all rain late in the day as mild air gets pulled into the region from the south. Rain showers will continue into Saturday with clearing into Sunday.
