Partly Sunny & Turning Milder the Next Few Days 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


A large ridge of high pressure continues to dominate the weather across the Northeast as it works east through the Tennessee River Valley. A brisk northwest breeze on the eastside of the high has been pulling cold air south into our region from central Canada the past few days as temps have been running about 10 to 15 degrees below normal.

The large high will move east and then park itself along the Mid-Atlantic Coastline tomorrow and Friday. A southwest breeze on the backside of the high will gradually bring milder air back to Maine the next few days. High temps Thursday will range from the upper 30s north to the mid 40s south, with temps both Friday and Saturday reaching the 40s to very low 50s. The high will keep conditions dry in our area right through the weekend. A storm passing up to the west of New England Monday will help pull milder air into our region on an increasing southerly breeze. The storms trailing cold front will move east and bring a band of showers to Maine later Monday and part of Tuesday. Colder air will filter back into New England on a northwest breeze that develops across our region as the cold front sweeps off to our east later Tuesday or Wednesday.


Tonight: Partly to mostly clear, diminishing wind and cold, with low temps in the mid teens to low 20s.


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


Friday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the 40s to near 50.


Saturday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the 40s to near 50.


Sunday: Partly sunny and mild, with high temps in the 40s to near 50.


Monday: Mostly cloudy, with showers likely developing and high temps in the mid 40s to mid 50s.


Tuesday: Showers and breezy, with high temps in the 40s.
