Central and Southern Maine Weather


 

 

Some light snow this morning is being caused by what we call an "inverted trough" it's bascially a wind switch line that causes moisture to be wrung out of the atmosphere.  Up to 2" of light and fluffy snow is possible in York County and SE NH.  Elsewhere a dusting is possible with snow showers and flurries.  Skies will brighten up this afternoon though.

 

The weekend is looking like a mostly decent one so for folks looking to enjoy the new snow on the ground the weather will cooperate.  The fresh snow is going to help cause the coldest night so far this season tonight so you'll want to bundle up if you are heading out. 

 

A warm front will bring some light snow and light rain Sunday morning with perhaps an inch accumulation before skies turn partly sunny.  Sunday will be a little warmer with temps getting back into the 40's again. 

 

Have a great weekend!
