Satellite imagery and a peek out the window this morning shows a mix of sun and clouds in place across most of the area with the brightest skies along the coast and the thickest clouds upwind of the mountains. Westerly breezes, milder air aloft, and partial sunshine will push temps a bit higher today, ranging from the mid 20s up north to the mid 30s along the coast. Clouds may start to increase this afternoon ahead of our next storm slated to arrive tomorrow.
That storm is worth a mention in this morning’s update because it will feature a mixed bag of precipitation. Snow is most likely up in the mountains and especially north of Augusta while the I-95 corridor will deal with freezing rain. Ice will accumulate especially from Portland to Augusta, but amounts will likely hold in the 0.15-0.3″ range, just shy of when we start really worrying about power outages. That said, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a few unlucky folks in the dark tomorrow, so plan accordingly. Travel will also be extremely slick with freezing rain and temps in the mid to upper 20s. More details tomorrow.
