Weather Brief Feb 26, 2020

Midcoast Forecast - February 26, 2020 AM

Clouds will remain in place for Wednesday as low pressure slowly approaches from the southwest with spotty light rain possible. A weak cold front that moved through Tuesday has brought slightly cooler air that will hold highs in the mid 30s to low 40s with continued cooling especially inland into Thursday. The low will strengthen Thursday as it moves toward New England bringing moderate to heavy snow inland and soaking rain along the coast. Organized snow and rain will move in early Thursday morning and ramp up into the midday hours before ending during the mid to late afternoon. Temperatures along the coast will likely hold above freezing during this time making for a mainly rain event, but temperatures about 10 to 20 miles inland will be near or below freezing setting the stage for some snow mix with 1" to 3" of accumulation. Snow amounts will ramp up further north and in the western Maine mountains where more cold air will be available. East winds will be strong during this storm with peak gusts of 40mph to 50mph possible along the coast, peaking around noon on Thursday. This may result in power outages especially for areas that see accumulating wet snow. Winds will also build seas to around 10 feet offshore. We'll see gradually clearing Friday and into the weekend as colder air settles into the region.
