Breezy & Cold Today and Wednesday, Milder End To Week 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


A cold front moved through the state overnight and early this morning and will continue to push away from the region today. Colder air will move in behind the departing cold front with temperatures averaging around 10° colder than what we had yesterday. Skies will be a mix of sun and clouds with temperatures in the upper 20s to mid-30s for highs. It’ll feel even colder than that though with the west/northwest breeze factored in. West/northwest winds could gust to 25 MPH at times today which will give us wind chill factors in the teens and 20s throughout the day. We could see some flurries or snow showers up north as well, with an upper level disturbance forecast to cross the state later today. We’re in for a cold night tonight with clear to partly cloudy skies and lows dropping to the mid-teens to around 20°.


Another upper level disturbance is forecast to pass to our north on Wednesday and may bring a few clouds into northern areas during the afternoon otherwise we’ll see lots of sunshine as a ridge of high pressure builds in. It’ll be another cold day with highs in the mid-20s to mid-30s. Winds will remain breezy too so wind chills will still be a factor on Wednesday feeling like it’s in the upper teens to mid-20s at times. High pressure will slide to our south for the end of the week giving us sunshine and milder, more seasonable temperatures for Thursday and Friday.



Today: an early rain and/or snow shower possible then a mix of sun and clouds, most clouds north. Breezy and colder. Highs between 28°-37°. Northwest wind 10-15 MPH with gusts to 25 MPH possible.


Tonight: clear to partly cloudy. Lows between 14°-20°. West/northwest wind 5-10 MPH.
Wednesday: mostly sunny, breezy and cold. A few clouds will move into northern Maine during the afternoon. Highs between 27°-36°. Northwest wind 10-15 MPH.


Thursday: mix of sun and clouds. Highs between 39°-45°.


Friday: mostly sunny. Highs in the 40s to near 50°.


Saturday: morning clouds will give way to brightening skies. Highs in the mid-40s to low 50s.
