Snow continues for much of Maine today; mix, rain south

Snow has changed to rain in parts of southern and Midcoast Maine, but will continue to pile up in central and northern areas.

MAINE, USA — Snow moved into southern Maine around midnight, dropping 1-3" in most areas before a change to sleet, freezing rain and rain. Some of the peninsulas and islands have no accumulation, while the accumulation has been reduced to slop and slush in Portland.

Inland it is colder, with sleet and freezing rain weighing down the snow.

North of Fryeburg, through the mountains, Route 2 corridor, Augusta-Waterville and Bangor, this will remain mostly or all snow, and that's where at least 6" of accumulation is expected.

Timeline

By noon, the precipitation will start lightening up in southern Maine. There has been a brief flip back to snow in the Portland area and on parts of the Midcoast, but little additional accumulation is expected.

It will keep snowing steadily and at times heavily in central, eastern and northern Maine.
