Early Clouds then Partly Sunny & Mild Thursday 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


A weakening cold front will bring clouds and a few scattered showers to Maine tonight and early tomorrow as it slips through New England. As the cold front moves off to our east later tomorrow a weak bubble of high pressure will bring slightly drier air to our region tomorrow afternoon and that will allow partly sunny skies to develop across our region. Temps tomorrow will once again run above normal as highs reach well up into the 60s all across Maine.

The cold front that pushes offshore tomorrow will stall just to our east tomorrow night. Energy aloft moving east through the Ohio River Valley will cause a new storm to develop just to our south later tomorrow. This new storm will slide northeast along the stalled front in the Gulf of Maine Friday morning and bring another round of showers to the Pine Tree State later tomorrow night and Friday morning. As the storm continues to move northeast into New Brunswick later Friday the skies across the Pine Tree State will partially clear.

Weak high pressure will produce a partly sunny start to our weekend Saturday, with temps still running a few degrees above normal. A few showers may develop here as a cold front moves east through our region Sunday. Temps will begin to turn cooler behind the cold front Sunday, with the trend towards chillier weather continuing next week as a series of troughs sweeping through the northeast brings progressively cooler air to Maine.


Tonight: Mostly cloudy, patchy fog and a few light showers, with low temps in the upper 40s to low 50s.


Thursday: Few early showers, then partly sunny, with high temps in the 60s.


Friday: Morning showers then partly sunny, with high temps in the upper 50s to mid 60s.


Saturday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the mid 50s to low 60s.


Sunday: Variably cloudy, with a few scattered showers possible, breezy and cooler, with high temps in the 50s to low 60s.


Monday: Partly sunny, breezy and cooler, with high temps in the upper 40s to mid 50s.
