Most Clouds North Today, Dry Saturday and Wet Sunday 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


A warm front will be draped across northern Maine today and slowly lift northward later today and tonight. With the front in the area, we’ll see more cloudiness across the state today with the bulk of the clouds over northern areas with more sunshine elsewhere. Temperatures will remain mild today with highs in the low to mid-70s for most locales. Skies will be clear to partly cloudy tonight with some patchy fog developing due to an onshore flow. Temperatures will bottom out right around 50° for nighttime lows.


A cold front will remain to our west Saturday so expect a dry day with a good amount of sunshine and temperatures near or a little above 70° for inland locations and mid-60s along the coast due to a wind off the water. We may see some low clouds and patchy fog in spots to start Saturday otherwise sunshine is expected to prevail. The cold front will push in from the west later Saturday night and cross the state during the day Sunday bringing us periods of rain for the second half of the weekend. With clouds and rain in place, temperatures will be a bit cooler Sunday with highs staying mainly in the 60s. Fall officially arrives at 4:44pm Sunday. A cooler, more fall-like airmass will move in behind the showers for Monday. Monday will feature partly to mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid-50s to low 60s. It looks like high pressure will slide into the region and provide us with another good stretch of weather for much of next week.



Today: mix of sun and clouds, most clouds north. Highs between 69°-77°, coolest along the coast. Light winds will become southeast 5-10 MPH.


Tonight: clear to partly cloudy. Patchy fog. Lows between 48°-53°. Light southeast wind.


Saturday: some clouds and patchy fog possible early otherwise mostly sunny. Highs  between 65°-73°, coolest along the coast. South wind 10-18 MPH
