Bright, Breezy & Chilly Wednesday 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

The large ridge of high pressure currently located just north of the Great Lakes Region will slowly move east and continue to control the weather here tomorrow through Friday. A northwest breeze on the east side of the high will keep the weather dry and chilly tomorrow, with high temps running in the upper 20s across far northern Maine to the 30s to near 40 throughout the rest of the state. Slighter milder air will move into our region both Thursday and Friday on a weak southerly breeze that develops on the backside of the high as it works 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 exact track of the storm will determine how much and what type of precipitation falls in our region Saturday. A storm track up to our west would lead to lighter precipitation amounts and mostly rain, while a track to our south would lead to a colder scenario and more of a snowfall event. The coldest air of the fall season so far will likely slide into the Northeast for later Sunday and early next week as we head towards the Thanksgiving holiday.


Tonight: Becoming partly to mostly clear, breezy and colder, with low temps in the mid teens to low 20s.


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


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 showers and high temps in the 30s to low 40s.


Sunday: Variably cloudy, mountain snow showers, blustery and cold, with high temps in the 20s to low 30s.
