Temperatures in almost all of the state fell below zero this morning. Bangor dropped to -8, Lewiston -12, and Portland hit 0.
We have a few chances for snow this week. The first two (tomorrow morning and Tuesday afternoon/night) look pretty minor. A bigger storm is likely on Thursday.
The issue for Monday will be the timing. Snow showers will move in Sunday night into Monday morning. Temperatures will keep rising overnight, thanks to a wind coming in from the south. By Monday morning, plan on occasional light snow inland and a wetter snow or rain near the coast. This is a low impact deal overall, but the timing will pose some issues for the morning commute. Some slick travel is likely, especially farther inland and in the mountains.
A slushy coating to 1" of snow is possible along the Midcoast, in the Portland area, through York County. The rest of the state may pick up 1" to 3" of snow through Monday morning.
Monday afternoon turns milder with some breaks of sun. Monday's highs top out in the upper 30s to low 40s.
Tuesday starts quiet. Another round of light snow moves into southern Maine Tuesday afternoon, moving into eastern Maine Tuesday evening. Minor accumulation is possible, the highest chance for a couple of inches will be in Downeast Maine.
Once again Thursday looks like the stormiest day of the week. Without a large cold high to the north, I don't expect this to be as big of a deal as last week's storm. But snow changing to a mix or rain for some seems likely during the day Thursday; we'll have updates as we get closer.
