We've seen a couple instances of temperatures that actually rise at night and fall during the day these past few weeks. We're in for another such trend heading into Monday morning along with some light snow and rain across the state.

After a day like we had on Sunday, where temperatures stayed in the single digits and teens once again, one might expect to have to get up early to find bitter morning temperatures and to have to warm up the car first thing Monday morning.  But that will not be the case; southerly winds usher in milder temperatures to start things out Monday morning.  There will also be some periods of light snow that bring the visibility down a bit.  This light snow will mix with and chance to rain along the immediate coast and a good portion of Washington County, however, interior Maine likely received an inch or two by nighttime Monday.  Parts of the Crown of Maine may pick up 3-6" of snow with some locally higher amounts.

Skies clear Monday night...and another shot of cold air comes back into the area for Tuesday.  Single digits and teens for high temperatures appear likely from northern to central Maine; closer to 20° near the coast.  Winds will also be quite busy.

The chill sticks around for Wednesday, but slowly lets go a little by the end of the week.  Temperatures will be in the upper 20s and lower 30s by Friday.  All in all, after Monday's light snow and rain, a quiet workweek will take shape weatherwise.
