Icy conditions make for a slick Monday morning commute

Snow will stop overnight, although some spots remain slick into Monday morning.

MAINE, USA — From cold rain along the coast to accumulating snow in parts of northern Maine, gloomy Sunday conditions were widespread.

The nor'easter pushes away by Monday morning, with just a handful of snow showers lingering through the western mountains and parts of northern Maine.

Although the precipitation wraps up early on Monday, there may be some isolated impacts for the morning commute.

The backside of the storm is going to be cold enough for a brief transition to snow. A quick coating is possible as far south as Augusta and Bangor. All it takes is a small coating to make things slick.

The western mountains and parts of Aroostook County see a few more snow showers in the morning as well.

These will be mostly localized and isolated, so significant impacts are not expected.

Isolated snow squalls continue Monday morning, but most are in better shape.

Some areas, especially along U.S. Route 2 through the foothills and in the central highlands, will see some icy spots Monday morning. These will mostly be isolated.

Temperatures climb quickly enough on Monday that icy spots and even some snow will melt by lunch time.

This sets the stage for nicer conditions in the afternoon and evening. If you think Monday looks nice, Tuesday will be even better! Due to the fact that impacts will be relatively low Monday morning and will be gone by Monday evening, I have left it as a low impact day overall.

If you have travel plans for the upcoming holiday, plan carefully. The next big system to impact Maine and the northeast moves in on Wednesday and lasts into Thanksgiving Day. Stay tuned for more on this.
