Central and Southern Maine Weather


Expect mostly cloudy skies with some scattered snow showers for this afternoon. Any snow will be very light and look to clear out this evening. Today's temperatures will be in the 20s to around 30 along the coast and they will continue to drop tomorrow and through the weekend. The scattered snow showers we see this afternoon will be ahead of a cold front coming through that will drop temperatures and bring in some gusty winds.  Expect winds to gust 25 - 30 mph this afternoon.  Tonight it will be very cold with temperatures dropping to the single digits and the winds making it feel even colder. Wind chill values tonight will be 5 to 15 degrees below zero. The cold air will stick around Friday along with more sunshine.  Another disturbance will bring our next round of snow overnight Friday into Saturday, the highs accumulations will be through the midcoast and downeast.  Some of the coldest air of the season moves in Sunday (Valentine's Day!) with highs just in the single digits for many towns.  We are tracking our next round of widespread snow and wintry mix to arrive Tuesday.
