Gray, Maine is seeing its first snow of the season on Monday.

“You could say things are looking white in Gray today,” National Weather Service meteorologist Eric Schwibs said.

The NWS in Gray posted a picture of the dusting in front of its office, about 19 miles north of Portland.

“Whether it’ll be measurable, we’ll have to see,” Schwibs said. “We could have up to a quarter to half inch on grassy surfaces.”

Portland also saw flurries, though its first snow was on November 7. Schwibs said Monday’s dusting may be the first measurable snow of the season in Portland.

The rest of the week in Gray will see slightly warmer temperatures, according to Schwibs. There will be a “fairly good” storm over the weekend — but not a snowstorm, he said.
