March weather in Maine can encompass a wide range of conditions, and we’ll be seeing that over the next several days, with rain and snow on the way yet again.

Winter weather advisories are up for Aroostook County, meaning several inches of snow are expected into the day Thursday, with lesser amounts expected elsewhere.

It will be a storm that won’t even register south of northern Maine on the winter storm severity index.

However, it will bring rain to the rest of the state, with precipitation amounts of more than half an inch for some parts.

Thursday’s storm is the first in a series of low pressure systems headed into New England. The first is mostly rain south of The County.

The second storm has more cold air to work with so I expect snow to be significant for Saturday night into early Sunday.

The snow will have a hard time sticking around by Sunday afternoon, with the higher angle of March sun working its magic.

The additional snow for the weekend will add to the current snow depth, but I expect the snowmelt to continue as we head into the back half of the month.
