A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Midcoast Maine with a Winter Storm Advisory for locations north and west of I-95 from 8pm Sunday night until noon Monday.

An area of low pressure will move through the Mid Atlantic Sunday night and through the southern Gulf of Maine through Monday that will push a swath of snow through New England and the Midcoast. With the center of the storm passing by further offshore, the heaviest of the snow will hold mainly out to sea along with upper level warm air making for an all snow event.

Snow will begin leading up to midnight and end during the mid to late morning Monday. Highest totals will be across Downeast Maine where around a foot of snow will be possible. Snow totals will be lower the further north and west you go through the state (see forecast map). Snowfall rates will likely be heaviest during the morning commute Monday making for hazardous travel conditions but this storm will be quick to move out with snow ending by midday and clearing into the afternoon.

We'll see continued clearing and cooling into the mid week with lows back down into the teens and highs in the 20s. Our weather will remain quiet with no storm on the horizon through the remainder of the work week.
