Clouds will increase through the afternoon ahead of an approaching warm front. Snow and rain will start to move into Maine and New Hampshire later today and will create slippery travel conditions for inland locations. The good news is that the precipitation will be done for most places by your morning commute Wednesday. Temperatures remain in the mid to upper 30s for the rest of the week, and the clouds clear out by late in the week.

This Afternoon - Increasing clouds, light winds, and highs in the mid to upper 30s. The leading edge of the rain and snow will arrive in western and southern Maine around 5/6pm. The onset of the storm will feature rain at the coast with the rain/snow line through NW York and Cumberland county.

Tonight - Through the overnight the rain/snow line will continue to move farther inland as the leading edge of the precipitation spreads NE. The National Weather Service does have some watches, warnings, and advisories posted for tonight due to the snow and slippery travel conditions. You can see those places listed at the top of your screen. The rain may be heavy at times along the coast around midnight. The snow and rain will start to taper and end from SW to NE during the early morning hours. Snow will continue into the day tomorrow for points north of Bangor.

Wednesday - Skies partially clear out for the southern half of the state. North of Bangor skies will remain mostly cloudy and we will have additional snow accumulation through the morning. Winds become breezy behind this passing system. Highs in the mid to upper 30s.

Extended Forecast - Partly sunny skies with a few scattered snow showers Thursday. High pressure provides us with sunny skies Friday. Clouds move back in for the start of the weekend and rain/snow showers are possible late Saturday into Sunday.
