Partly Sunny, Breezy & Cooler the Next Few Days 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


The cold front that brought the blustery, mild and showery conditions to Maine today continues to slip off to our east. Behind the cold front cooler air began to move into New England this afternoon, but still temps ran well above normal. A much cooler airmass will push in Maine as a second cold front slides through the Northeast late tonight and early tomorrow morning. Temps late tonight will fall into upper 20s north to mid 30s south as the colder air begins to spill into Maine behind the front.

A large ridge of high pressure currently west of the Great Lakes Region will move east and control the weather here tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday. A northwest breeze on the eastside of the high will keep the weather dry and cool the next few days as high temps both tomorrow and Wednesday range from the mid 30s to lower 40s. Slighter milder air will move into our region Thursday as the high slowly slips off to our east.

Temps will begin to turn cooler as a cold front slides east through New England Friday. The front will likely stall just to our south Friday night and a storm will ride along the front Saturday and bring the risk of both rain and snow to our region over the weekend. The coldest air of the fall season so far will likely slide into the Northeast early next week as we head towards Thanksgiving.


Tonight: Partly cloudy, breezy and turning cooler, with low temps in the upper 20s to mid 30s.


Tuesday: Partly sunny, breezy and cooler, with mountain flurries and high temps in the mid 30s to low 40s.


Wednesday: Mostly sunny, breezy and chilly, with high temps in the 30s to very low 40s.


Thursday: Mostly sunny, with high temps in the upper 30s to mid 40s.


Friday: Partly cloudy, with high temps in the mid 30s to lower 40s.


Saturday: Mostly cloudy, with the chance of rain and snow developing and high temps in the 30s.
