Arctic Cold Today

Hello everyone!

Deep winter has arrived a couple of weeks early this year as an Arctic airmass is in complete control of our weather here in Maine. High temperatures will range from -15 in the north to a balmy 0 degrees in the south. NW winds will continue to gust to 30 mph today, resulting in wind chills well below zero for the entire area. Wind Chill Warnings have been issued for the mountains and foothills while Wind Chill Advisories have been issued for the coastal plain. If you’re headed outside, take proper precautions to ensure you stay warm! Outside of the bitter cold, it’ll be a pretty nice day today. Skies will start out mainly sunny, though a few clouds are possible this afternoon as a weak trough slides through aloft. In the mountains, this trough may have just enough moisture for a few flurries, but no meaningful snow is expected.
