Slippery Wednesday Morning Commute (Mostly Inland)

Video update Here.

Had enough of this early season wintry weather?  November 2014 went into the books 12 snowiest in 133 years of records at the Portland Jetport.  It was the first time I can remember making a snowfall forecasts every week in the month of November.  The first week of December is proving no different.

A Winter Weather Advisory is up for most of Maine through Wednesday morning.

Snow is overspreading our skies from south to north tonight.  Initially temperatures are cold enough for all snow at the onset but a change over will occur.  Expect rain to be the dominate type of precipitation for coastal towns for the early Wednesday commute.  Farther inland (15 to 30 miles) widespread freezing rain should provide travel trouble.  The battle line will be a line running from Sebago Lake, to Lewiston/Auburn, to Augusta Waterville where freezing rain will hang on longest.


Snow and sleet accumulations will be fairly small in comparison to last weeks storm.

Freezing rain should play a bigger role in travel Wednesday morning.  Light ice accumulations should coat the untreated roads, driveways, sidewalks, steps, etc. Use caution during the  morning.


The steadiest precipitation should exit the area by late morning leaving us with clouds and the chance for rain showers.  Thursday and Friday look brighter but cooler.   Our next chance for any significant snow,sleet, freezing rain, and rain will arrive early next week.  Hang in there.
