Bit Brighter and Milder Thursday 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


The storm system both at the surface and aloft that has produced the cool, cloudy and occasionally wet weather across Maine the past three days continues to gradually work northeast towards eastern Newfoundland. As the storm moves away the weather across our region will improve a bit today. Under clouds mixed with some sunshine today, temps will climb back up to more seasonable levels as highs reach into the 60s statewide.

High pressure currently located just north of the Great Lakes Region will slowly move southeast and control the weather across all of the Northeast Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The high will bring mostly sunny skies to our region Friday through Sunday. The increased sunshine will cause temps to warm all across New England Friday and this weekend. Temps Friday will run in the mid 60s to low 70s here, with temps Saturday and Sunday ranging from the upper 60s to mid 70s all across the Pine Tree State.

Over the weekend a storm will likely develop east of the Southeast US Coastline. The storm will intensify as it begins to move north next week, but at this time it appears the storm will likely stay far enough off to our east to have much of an impact on the weather in our region. If the storm takes a track west of current projections than Eastern New England will see a period of rain and wind next Tuesday or Wednesday.



Today: Mixed sun and clouds, a bit breezy, with high temps in the low to mid 60s.


Friday: Mostly sunny, with high temps in the mid 60s to low 70s.


Saturday: Mostly sunny and mild, with high temps in the upper 60s to mid 70s.


Sunday: Mostly sunny, with high temps in the upper 60s to mid 70s.


Monday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the 60s to near 70.
