Weather Brief Feb 17, 2020

Midcoast Forecast - February 17, 2020

Our week is off to a sunny start thanks to high pressure in place over New England. Temperatures have gone down slightly compared to Sunday as cooler air filters in along breezy northwest winds with highs holding in the mid to upper 30s which is still above normal for mid February. We'll see continued cooling overnight with lows dipping down into the teens under mostly clear skies.

High pressure will shift east on Tuesday giving way to increasing clouds early as a wave of low pressure approaches from the northwest. This will lead to overcast skies and light snow developing during the early afternoon, become steady during the mid to late afternoon and continue through the evening and early night. Southeast winds will increase during this time becoming brisk though Midcoast and Downeast Maine ushering in milder air. This will result in blowing snow, transitioning to rain along the coast as temperatures rise above freezing. Precipitation will come to and end before midnight leaving snow accumulations of 1" to 3" along the coast after rain melt with 2" to 5" of snow inland.

Skies will clear on Wednesday with highs holding in the 30s followed by a shot of colder air Thursday as high pressure sets up over the region with lows dipping into the single digits and highs in the teens. Quiet weather will continue through the late week and weekend as temperature gradually climb, eventually reaching the upper 30s to low 40s yet again.
