Partly Cloudy, Breezy & Cold the Next Few Days 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


The combination of a strong storm located over eastern Hudson Bay and a large ridge of high pressure moving east across the central U.S. brought a gusty wind to Maine today. The gusty wind helped usher a much colder airmass into New England as the day progressed and the cold air will continue to pour into our region tomorrow as the brisk breeze continues. High temps Wednesday will range from the high single numbers north to the teens to near 20 south. Once again temps Thursday will be on the cold side with highs ranging from the upper single numbers north to the low 20s along the coastline.

Temps will begin to moderate Friday as the high moves offshore and a southwest breeze develops here. High temps Friday will reach up into the 20s to near 30, which is near normal for this time of year. A front approaching from the west and a disturbance moving up from the south might bring some light rain and snow to our region over the weekend. Temps late this week and weekend will run a few to several degrees above normal. Another storm may move up the Eastern Seaboard later Monday or Tuesday and once again a milder than normal airmass will bring the risk of more rain or snow back to our region.


Tonight: Partly cloudy, mountain flurries, blustery and cold, with low temps in the range of -7 to +8.


Wednesday: Partly sunny and breezy, with high temps in the upper single numbers north and teens to low 20s south.


Thursday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the teens to low 20s.


Friday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the 20s to near 30.


Saturday: Mostly cloudy, rain and snow showers possible and rather mild, with high temps in the low 30s to low 40s from north to south.


Sunday: Possible rain and snow showers, with high temps in the mid 30s to low 40s.
