After several days of bone chilling cold temperatures we will see temperatures warm up significantly. Don't get used to them though. They are only here for two days. Things will be pretty active precipitation wise over the next two days. Tonight we are expecting a wintry mix for inland locations creating some messy travel conditions tonight and early tomorrow. Precipitation changes over to rain showers tomorrow during the day. Then a round of more rain Wednesday night into early Thursday.

This Afternoon - Temperatures for many locations will slowly warm into the 30s. Clouds will start to move in from the SW as warm air tries to push into our area.

Tonight - The leading edge of tonight's precip will arrive in western and southern Maine just before midnight. It will continue to spread NE. At the coast I think we will see mainly rain, but inland locations will see some freezing rain. The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for tonight. One tenth of an inch of ice is possible for inland locations. Roads will be slick tonight and during your morning commute so you will want to leave yourself some extra time.

Wednesday - Things are warming on up! High temperatures will be in the 40s with some places pushing the 50 mark. It's a trade off though. Don't expect any sunshine. Skies will be cloudy and we have some rain showers and drizzle.

Extended Forecast - Some steady rain moves in Wednesday night into early Thursday as a cold front pushes through the area. Winds will also pick up and be gusty at times. I do expect to see some afternoon clearing on Thursday. Friday looks nice, but the temperatures will be cooling back down. Next chance of snow will be on Sunday.
