PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (WAGM) – Hello everyone. It’s Friday, and with the weekend upon us, we actually have good weather in store for the first half. This morning however, the high is just northwest of us. This will allow the low pressure system to our south to move into the area, but not far enough north to bring us a good amount of snow. Although we will see a few flurries during the afternoon, we are missing a good deal of precipitation for our area.
Today, high temperatures are rising into the mid-teens for many places. Again, northwest winds will continue to gust throughout the day. This afternoon snow showers will sweep through the area and allow for light accumulations before leaving the area by lunchtime. Skies will clear overnight and allow temperatures to drop a few degrees colder than where we were this morning. Many places will hit the upper numbers and the teens below zero.
Looking at the snowfall map through Saturday morning, we see much of the county receiving a few inches of snow at this point. Most of us fall into the 1 to 3 inch category, but the further south you go through Aroostook the more likely you are to see snowfall between 3 and 4 inches. As I said yesterday, the downstate appears to be getting the most snow from this system, with widespread totals of 6-12 inches expected.
