Pleasant Week Ahead 

Todd Simcox

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


The beautiful weather we had over the weekend will continue for the next several days. Low pressure to our southeast out over the Atlantic will remain far enough offshore so to not have any major impact on our forecast. No big storms in sight so things are expected to remain dry for the week ahead.


High pressure will continue to control our weather today providing us with a good amount of sunshine and temperatures that will top off in the 60s to low 70s for highs this afternoon. The coolest temperatures will be along the coastline with an onshore breeze developing today. The ocean storm we’ve been talking about the past few days will bring a few clouds into coastal and Downeast areas today otherwise the rest of the storm will remain far enough to our south and east to have little effect on our forecast. Skies will be clear to partly cloudy with lows in the 30s and 40s.


Sunshine will prevail Tuesday with high pressure in control. Winds will switch to a northwest direction on Tuesday, allowing temperatures along the coast to warm up a few more degrees than they will be today. A cold front is forecast to move through the area later Wednesday. West/southwest winds ahead of the approaching front will warm temperatures to the 70s for most locales Wednesday afternoon. The cold front doesn’t have much moisture with it so expect plenty of sunshine and a dry day Wednesday as the front moves through. High pressure will control our weather for the end of the week with sunshine for Thursday and Friday. Cooler air behind the departing cold front will bring temperatures down to more seasonable readings with highs in the 60s Thursday and Friday. The next chance of any rainfall will be sometime later in the upcoming weekend.



Rest of Today: partly to mostly sunny. Most of the clouds will be near the coast and Downeast. Highs between 64°-74°. Light winds will become south/southwest 5-10 MPH.


Tonight: clear to partly cloudy. Lows between 37°-46°. Light and variable wind.


Tuesday: mostly sunny with highs between 68°-74°. Northwest wind 5-10 MPH.


Wednesday: partly to mostly sunny. Mild with highs between 69°-76°


Thursday: mostly sunny and cooler with highs in the 60s.


Friday: sunny and pleasant. Highs in the 60s.
