Windy, Wet & Mild Start to November 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

A strong storm sliding northeast across Ontario and Quebec tonight and tomorrow will pull a warm front through Maine tonight followed by a cold front later tomorrow. The combination of the fronts and strong storm will bring a very strong and gusty southerly wind to our region beginning late tonight and lasting through the daylight hours tomorrow. The wind may gust over 40 mph inland and over 50 mph along the coastline and hilltops. The strong southerly wind will usher a very mild airmass into all of New England for the first day of November as high temps run nearly 20 degrees above normal despite a lack of sunshine. The warm and cold fronts will also produce periods of showers here tonight and tomorrow, with some of the rain falling heavily at times. Most of Maine will receive between .50” and 1.00” of rain by the time the cold front exits to our east and the showers come to an end.

After a partly sunny start to the day skies will become mostly cloudy late Saturday as a new cold front approaches our region from the north. The new cold front will move through Maine Saturday night, with more scattered showers likely developing here. As colder air sweeps into Maine late Saturday night and Sunday morning the rain showers may mix with or change to snow before ending, especially over the higher elevations up north. Behind the second cold front a much cooler airmass will move into our region on a gusty northerly breeze later Sunday. High pressure building southeast from the Hudson Bay Region of Canada will produce bright and chilly weather all across New England both Monday and Tuesday.

Tonight: Periods of showers, becoming breezy and milder, with temps rising through the 50s.

Friday: Very windy and mild, with periods of showers and high temps in the 60s.

Saturday: Partly cloudy, few scattered showers possible north and high temps in the upper 40s to upper 50s.

Sunday: Mostly to partly cloudy, breezy and turning cooler, with morning rain or snow showers possible and high temps in the mid 30s north to mid 40s south.

Monday: Mostly sunny and cool, with high temps in the mid 30s to mid 40s.

Tuesday: More sun than clouds, with high temps in the upper 30s to mid 40s.
