MAINE, USA — It's a little early to be talking about snow, but a storm system will slide through New England tonight and just enough cold air will be around to support some wet snow in the mountains.
By tomorrow morning most Mainers will be seeing cold rain and a stiff breeze out of the northeast. It's going to be nasty out. However, a few thousand feet above our heads, the air will be cold enough to flip cold rain to wet snow. That means the mountains, especially elevations above 2000 feet, will get their first frosting of the season.
Snow this early isn't unheard of, but it is fairly rare.
Earliest Measurable (.01") Snow in Portland: October 10th Earliest Measurable (.01") Snow in Bangor: October 9th Earliest Measurable (.01") Snow in Caribou: September 29th
With peak foliage and frosted mountain tops, there should be some amazing vistas later tomorrow. You can track the #snowliage from this Mount Katahdin webcam.
