Freezing Rain Advisory Issued for Bangor + Downeast Maine
The National Weather Service in Caribou has issued a freezing rain advisory for the Bangor area and Downeast Maine lasting until the morning of Monday, Jan. 6.
A tenth to a quarter inch of ice is expected from the storm, which is expected to hit the Bangor area around 7 p.m. on Sunday.
The National Weather Service is warning motorists in the area to be prepared for slippery roads, as a glaze of ice on the roads is expected to create hazardous conditions.
The warning is in effect until 7 a.m., Monday, for southern Penobsoct and interior Hancock and Washington counties including Bangor, Brewer, Old Town, Orono, Eastbrook, Orland Dedham, Perry and Princeton.
Coastal Hancock and Washington counties, including the Ellsworth, Mount Desert Island and Machias areas are expected to see the most of the freezing participation end before midnight, with the advisory expiring in that area around 4 a.m.
The warning will remain in effect until 10 a.m., Monday, for northern Piscataquis and southern Aroostook counties including the towns of Dover-Foxcroft, Milo, Greenville, Millinocket and Houlton.
