Increasing Clouds, with Possible Late Showers Tomorrow 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

The ridge of high pressure that brought the bright and chilly weather to Maine the past couple of days will slide off to our east later tonight and tomorrow morning. As the high departs to our east a warm front associated with a storm moving northeast through the Great lakes Region will approach New England. The warm front will bring increasing clouds to our region tomorrow after a bit of morning sunshine. Scattered showers will begin to develop in our area as the warm front moves into New England later tomorrow afternoon or evening. The storm over the Great Lakes tomorrow will continue to move northeast up into Canada tomorrow night and Friday. The combination of the storm passing to our north and its trailing cold front sliding into the Northeast will bring periods of rain to Maine Friday. Despite the lack of sunshine a strong southerly breeze will cause temps to run well above normal here as we begin the month of November on Friday. Highs Friday will range from the upper 50s north to the mid 60s south as a southerly wind gusts to over 30 mph.

Another cold front will move through Maine Saturday, with the chance of a few more scattered showers, otherwise skies will run partly cloudy. Behind the second cold front a cooler and more seasonable airmass will move into our region for the second half of the weekend and the beginning of the workweek.


Tonight: Mostly clear to partly cloudy and chilly, with low temps in the 20s to near freezing.


Halloween: A little early sun then becoming cloudy, with a few late showers possible and high temps in the upper 40s to mid 50s.

Saturday: Variably cloudy, few scattered showers likely and high temps in the upper 40s to upper 50s.
