It's been a beautiful late February day, with plenty of sunshine along with temperatures in the 40s across most of Maine.
Most of Wednesday (at least for eastern and northern counties) will be quiet, with a messy mix of snow and rain arriving in southern Maine around late morning. By tomorrow night snow and rain will slide into the rest of the state, which means our morning commute on Thursday will be a challenge. The low producing the snow and rain is a real slow mover, so the precipitation will hang around through much of Thursday into Thursday night. By the time the low moves away, the coastline will be looking at 1-5" of snowfall-with the least where more of the mixing with rain occurs. For the Bangor, Lincoln, Calais area expect around 4-8" with around a foot of new snow for the Foothills and western mountains of Maine.
Conditions will stay unsettled for Friday as the surface low pulls away, with upper level energy also influencing the weather pattern.
