Snow will taper and end from west to east tonight as low pressure exits into the Canadian Maritimes. The winter weather advisories will expire later tonight, but the blizzard warning continues into the day tomorrow for eastern and northern Maine. That's because even though the snow will come to an end the winds will still be strong through Monday. High pressure will provide us with sunny skies Monday and for the first part of Tuesday. Our next chance of snow/rain moves in late Tuesday.

Tonight - Snow will continue in eastern and northern Maine until after midnight. Everyone else will see the snow end this evening. The biggest story tonight will still be the windy conditions. With cold temperatures in place wind chill values will be subzero for everyone. The National Weather Service have a wind chill advisory posted for the mountains where wind chill values will be as cold as 15 to 25 degrees below zero.

Monday - High pressure provides us with mostly sunny skies. High temperatures will warm to around 30 degrees. The gusty winds will still make it feel a good 10 to 15 degrees colder.

Extended Forecast - Lighter winds expected Tuesday. Skies start out sunny with increasing clouds during the afternoon. Our next round of precipitation arrives in the form of rain and snow late Tuesday and continues into the overnight. Quiet weather conditions Wednesday through Friday. Next weekend features more clouds and some scattered snow showers.
