Weather Brief Nov 19, 2018

Midcoast Forecast - November 19, 2018

The winter weather continues this week and in full force with multiple chances for snow and the coldest air so far this season.

Monday brought a coating of fresh snow along the coast during the morning that melted for the most part as precipitation changed over to rain with temperatures warming above freezing. This came as a weak area of low pressure moved by off the coast. We'll see a break in the action into the early night as temperatures drop back below freezing. Another more potent area of low pressure will follow in the tracks of Monday's system bringing more snow starting around sunrise Tuesday morning. Snow will continue through the day and be moderate to heavy at times with little to no mixing of rain but have similar impacts to the storm we saw on Friday with temperatures holding mainly in the low 30s. Most of the Midcoast will be in the 3" to 6" range (and likely on the high end of that) with some localized spots possibly up to 8". A Winter Weather Advisory in effect for Tuesday because of this.

Skies will clear some Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning with highs holding in the 30s but some big changes will take place late Wednesday as an arctic cold front races in from the northwest. This will likely bring a quick burst of snow during the early night followed by stronger winds as cold air rushes into the region taking highs down into the teens to low 20s for Thanksgiving and overnight lows in the single digits. With the combination of brisk winds and cold temperatures, wind chill values will dip either side of 0 for Wednesday night through Thursday night.

We'll see a steady recovery in temperatures Friday and into the weekend with a chance for rain moving in Sunday.
