Good news for the Bangor area is most reports seem to think we'll be missing the heavy rain part of this system that is giving flood warnings to other parts of the state.
WGME is saying to look for cold rain tonight for central and southern Maine. They also believe that we'll be getting snow in the higher elevations They are expecting route 2 to be the dividing line between rain and just wind. Now I say just wind but the wind which doesn't really sound tough enough because they are predicting gusts up to 40 MPH this is mostly along the coast. Then Saturday we are expecting more wind in the forecast so be ready.

As for north and western Maine the National Weather Service has put out several warnings for snow and slippery conditions.

WHAT...Snow and mixed precipitation expected. Total snow
accumulations of 2 to 4 inches. Ice accumulations of a light
glaze are expected.

* WHERE...Northeast Aroostook and Northern Penobscot Counties.

* WHEN...From 9 PM this evening to 1 PM EST Saturday.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Plan on slippery road conditions. Expect
reduced visibilities at times.


A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or
freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Expect slippery
roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.
