As we head into the evening and overnight hours, conditions are fairly tame (but still cold) as the area of low pressure responsible for our upcoming storm tracks northeast from the Mid-Atlantic states.
It appears the steady snow will arrive along the coast and into the Bangor area around 8:30 to 10pm, and once it starts it isn't going to stop until later in the day Saturday. By the way, it appears northernmost Maine may miss-out on this one, with just some light snow at best across northern Aroostook county. But for the rest of Maine, we're in for an impressive blanket of snow. Along with the snow some gusty northeast to north winds will kick-up, which will create some blowing and drifting snow, which in turn will create some visibility issues.
As for snow accumulation, click on our snow totals map for details-which will include around 14-22" near the coast, 12-15" for the Greater Bangor area toward Newport and Waterville and east toward Calais, with less snow as you move north.
Sunshine will return for Sunday, along with milder temperatures as we enter the new work-week.
