Fair & Milder Tomorrow, Showers, Breezy & Mild Thursday 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


A light southerly breeze on the backside of high pressure will keep temperatures milder tonight than what we have experienced the past couple of nights. Under mostly clear to partly cloudy skies tonight the temps across Maine will drop into the mid 20s to low 30s by daybreak tomorrow.

On Wednesday clouds will slowly begin to increase across New England from the west as the ridge of high pressure that has produced the sunny conditions the past three days continues to slip off to our east. A light southerly breeze on the backside of the high will allow temps to continue to warm across the Pine Tree State. On Thursday a storm moving northeast from Ontario into Quebec will bring an increasingly mild southerly airflow to Maine and the rest of New England. Showers will break out from west to east across Maine as the storm moving through southeastern Canada Thursday pulls a cold front into our region. Temperatures will climb well up into the 50s to near 60 Thursday despite a lack of sunshine and a period of showers.

A gusty northwest breeze on the backside of the cold front will help usher a chilly airmass back into our region for both Friday and Saturday. A fast moving weak storm will likely bring some rain and possibly some snow showers to Maine Sunday, followed by more fair and chilly weather on Monday.



Tonight: Mostly to partly clear, light wind and cool, with low temps in the mid 20s to low 30s.


Wednesday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the mid 40s to low 50s.


Thursday: Mostly cloudy, breezy and mild, with a period of showers and high temps in the 50s to near 60.


Friday: Partly cloudy, breezy and cooler, with high temps in the upper 30s to upper 40s from north to south.


Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny and chilly, with high temps in upper 30s to mid 40s.


Sunday: Mostly cloudy, possible rain showers south and mixed rain and snow showers north, with high temps in the low to mid 40s.
