Another Beautiful Day Ahead, Sunshine Continues Friday 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


High pressure will build into the area today and provide us with plenty of sunshine and another mild day. High temperatures this time of year should average in the upper 50s to low 60s from north to south across the state and instead we’ll see temperatures in the mid-60s to mid-70s for highs this afternoon. A few high clouds will make their way into coastal and southern parts of the state during the night tonight otherwise expect mainly clear skies for the overnight hours with temperatures in the mid-40s to low 50s for nighttime lows.


High clouds associated with a warm front located south of New England will likely move across southern and coastal areas Friday morning otherwise we’ll see mostly sunny skies Friday as high pressure remains in control of our weather. Friday’s temperatures will top off above average again with highs in the 60s to low 70s. We’ll see more clouds moving into the state on Saturday with a few breaks of sunshine mixed in. It’ll be a dry day Saturday so a decent start to the weekend, just not as bright as what we’ve been seeing. As a result of more clouds/less sunshine, temperatures will be a bit cooler with highs in the 60s Saturday afternoon. Low pressure moving through the Great Lakes will pull a warm front northward across Maine on Sunday and will give us a chance for some afternoon showers especially over the northern half of the state. A cold front is forecast to move through the state on Monday giving us a better chance for more widespread showers or possibly some steadier, heavier rainfall for the start of the work week.


Today: mostly sunny, breezy and mild. Highs between 65°-75°. West/northwest wind 8-13 MPH with gusts to 20-25 MPH possible.


Tonight: clear to partly cloudy skies. Lows between 43°-52°. Light and variable wind.


Friday: mostly sunny and pleasant. Highs ranging from 62°-72°. Northwest wind 8-15 MPH.


Saturday: variably cloudy. Highs in the low to mid-60s.


Sunday: mostly cloudy. Scattered showers possible during the afternoon especially over northern areas. Highs in the mid-50s to low 60s.


Monday: mostly cloudy with showers likely. Highs in the mid-60s to around 70°.
