High pressure to our west will dominate the weather across New England much of this week. The high will produce plenty of sunshine in our region today and after a chilly start afternoon temps will climb back up into the low to mid 60s across most of Maine except the far north where temps will hold in the upper 50s.
The high will slip to the Mid-Atlantic Coastline Wednesday and then only move east at a snail’s pace from there Thursday and Friday. The high will once again bring plenty of sunshine to all of Maine Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. A southwest breeze on the backside of the high will allow milder air to filter into the Northeast Wednesday through Friday causing temps to warm to above normal levels for the later part of the workweek.
An approaching cold front will bring increasing clouds to New England Saturday, along with the risk of some late day or evening showers as the front slips into our region. Showers may linger into part of Sunday as the front continues to cross New England. Cooler and drier air will build back into the Northeast later Sunday and Monday as the cold front slips offshore.
