Tonight we take a trip to the far northeastern corner of the US, the great state of Maine! Let’s see how this weekend will shape up in preparation for The Big Game!
At 953pm EST, the temperature at Bangor, ME was 31 degrees under overcast skies. A strong cold front is pushing through New England tonight, bringing plenty of snow to the area. A couple inches of accumulation is expected by the early afternoon hours when activity wanes as the system pushes out to sea. Much colder air will spill into the region as arctic high pressure builds over the Eastern Seaboard heading into the weekend. Temperatures will plummet Friday night before only rebounding into the teens for Saturday. Luckily, plenty of (cold) sunshine will help things seem fairly nice. Brrrrr.
