It was nice to enjoy some warm weather Wednesday, but winter isn’t over yet. Another snowstorm is in Friday’s forecast. Here is what to expect and when:

FRIDAY MORNING: Snow will begin to move in between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. Periods of moderate to heavy snow will make travel difficult for the morning commute. If you have the option, Friday may be a good day to work remotely.

FRIDAY AFTERNOON: Steady snow continues for most of Friday. Heaviest bands will set up in far southern Maine and southern New Hampshire.

FRIDAY EVENING: Things will lighten up between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. Road conditions should dramatically improve during this time. The weather will cooperate for clean up.

AMOUNTS: A plowable snow is expected for most of our area. Over a half foot of accumulations are likely in Portland and much of York County. Lewiston, Auburn, Augusta, midcoast Maine, and the Oxford Hills region will receive 4-8 inches. Lighter amounts expected along and north of Route 2.

LOOKING AHEAD: Cold temperatures should stick around for the weekend with sunshine returning. Another reinforcing shot of cold air may bring some snow showers or snow squalls Sunday night. Temperatures will stay cooler-than-normal through the first few days of March.
