An ocean storm that narrowly missed Maine on Friday will help draw in bitterly cold temperatures to start the weekend, but all eyes are on a messy storm on Monday.As the ocean storm moves out, the wind will pick up out of the north to northwest creating dangerously cold wind chills Friday night into Saturday. The cold temperatures combined with gusty north to northwest winds will send wind chill temperatures well below zero Saturday morning. The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill warning for Oxford, Franklin and Somerset counties beginning Friday night and lasting until Saturday afternoon. Wind chill values could be as low as 40 degrees below zero.A wind chill advisory has been issued for York, Cumberland, Sagadahoc, Androscoggin, Kennebec, Lincoln, Knox and Waldo counties for the same time period, Wind chills could fall to as low as 30 degrees below zero.Cold temperatures on Saturday in the single-digits and teens, along with gusty northwest winds, will keep wind chill temperatures below zero for the day across nearly all of Maine. As temperatures start to recover Sunday, eyes turn to a storm Monday that will bring accumulating snow, a wintry mix and rain to Maine. It is still too early to talk about specific snow totals but several inches are possible away from the immediate coast.The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for western Maine from early Monday morning until Tuesday morning. The foothills and mountains will see the heaviest snow from the storm.The center of the storm is expected to pass nearly overhead and this would bring a mix and rain to coastal Maine. A more easterly shift of this track would mean colder air and more coastal towns seeing higher snowfall amounts. Stay tuned as we fine-tune the details on this developing storm.
