An Icy Start to Thursday in Maine Will Lead to Another Mess For Friday
You know what they say, right? If you don't like the weather in Maine just wait a minute and it will change. However, between today and tomorrow if you wait you actually will just end up with the same weather all over again.
According to WGME meteorologist, Christian Bridges, more of the same is in store for much of Maine tomorrow morning. Though tomorrow it looks like we'll see less ice and more snow, which to be totally honest, isn't a bad thing. As Mainers we're all used to driving around in the snow.
Temps on Thursday will be near or above 40 for most of us, which means a lot of this ice from this morning will in fact melt. However, the next system is set to roll in to Maine tomorrow just before or during the morning commute depending on where you live. The Friday morning storm will produce sleet, freezing rain and snow. However snow looks to be the main component as many areas will see 3-5 inches, according to Bridges.
The Friday storm will be long and drawn out as some areas of Maine won't see clearing in the precipitation until early on Saturday morning. This means that in addition to the Friday morning commute being somewhat dicey for parts of Maine, the Friday evening commute could also pose some challenges, so take it easy!
The next storm, which we've been talking about for days now, looks to move in sometime on Sunday evening and hang with us through Monday morning. At this time, the exact track of the storm hasn't quite been nailed down which means predicting snowfall totals isn't quite where it needs to be yet either.
However, Bridges has said that the Sunday night storm is likely to being 'widespread' snowfall to Maine and even periods of heavy snow to some areas.
We will keep you posted as more information becomes available for the upcoming late weekend storm.
