Partly to Mostly Sunny & Mild Friday 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


The ridge of high pressure that has produced the sunny and pleasant weather across our region the past several days will continue to slowly drift east off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline tonight and tomorrow. Once again the high will bring most of Maine a bright and mild end to the workweek tomorrow. A weak backdoor cold front will slip into far northern parts of the Pine Tree State tonight and those locals will see skies run partly to mostly cloudy tomorrow, while the rest of our region remains bright and mild.

The backdoor cold front located over northern parts of Maine tomorrow will lift back up into Canada by Saturday morning. The high off to our southeast will produce one more dry day in our area Saturday as it continues to drift east. After a bright start to our weekend an approaching cold front from the west will bring increasing clouds to New England later Saturday afternoon and evening. The cold front will produce a period of rain throughout New England as it slowly works east, with the bulk of the showers in Maine falling during the daylight hours of Sunday. Showers will taper off and the skies will partially clear across Maine Sunday night as the cold front slips off to our east. High pressure centered north of the Great Lakes Region later Sunday will approach our region early in the workweek and bring cooler and drier air back into New England for both Monday and Tuesday.


Tonight: Mostly clear south and becoming partly cloudy north, with low temps in the mid 40s to low 50s.


Friday: Mostly to partly sunny south, with more clouds north and high temps in the upper 60s at the coast to the 70s inland.


Saturday: Partly sunny start then increasing clouds, with high temps in the mid 60s to low 70s.
