MAINE, USA — It's going to be a chilly and messy Sunday, depending on where you live.
The coast will see largely rain from this system. The mountains and far north will see mostly snow. In between, it'll be a mix of sleet, some rain, and some snow.
By noon, some rain or a light mix will arrive in Bangor. It'll be raining along the coast and in most of southern Maine. But just a bit inland, around Sebago Lake, Lewiston, August and Waterville, temperatures will be very close to freezing, with a wintry mix. It'll be snowing in the foothills and mountains.
Heavier precipitation moves in this afternoon.
It'll be snow, heavy at times in the mountains. Travel will likely get tricky for a while, especially in Oxford, Franklin, Somerset, and Piscataquis counties. The coast will continue to see rain, with some downpours.
There will be a gusty northeast wind too, up to 35 mph along the coast.
The precipitation shifts north and east late this evening, lightening up in western Maine.
By Monday morning, we'll be clearing out. In southern and central Maine, most of the standing water should dry up, so the morning commute should be okay, outside of isolated icy patches.
A little sleet or slushy accumulation is possible near the coast.
From the north side of Sebago Lake to Lewiston, Augusta, Waterville northwestward, 1 to 3 inches of snow are expected. On the cold side of the rain/snow line, the amounts may increase pretty quickly through the Oxford Hills and to Route 2. 3 to 6 inches are expected here. The mountains, Central Highlands and much of The County will see 6 inches of snow, or even a bit more in spots.
