Slowly Cooling Temps, with Scattered Rain & Snow Showers 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


The combination of an approaching upper level trough from the west and a weak storm developing to our southeast will keep skies here mostly cloudy today. The weak upper level trough will likely cause scattered light snow and rain showers to develop across our region today. Temps today will run a bit cooler than today, but will still average about 10 degrees above normal.

A series of disturbances aloft will keep skies mostly cloudy all across New England Friday, Saturday and Sunday as they cross the region. Each upper level trough will bring the risk of scattered rain and snow showers to our area as they ride east through Maine, but at this time it appears each upper level trough will remain rather weak until they move northeast up into the Canadian Maritimes. Each trough will help to pull chillier air into Maine as they cross the state and by Monday temperatures will finally run a bit below normal. The trend towards colder conditions in the Northeast will likely continue well into next week.


Today: Mostly cloudy, with a few light rain and snow showers possible and high temps in the 30s to near 40.


Friday: Partly to mostly cloudy, with scattered snow and rain showers likely and high temps in the 30s to very low 40s.


Saturday: Occasional light snow and mixed precipitation likely, with high temps in the 30s.


Sunday: Variably cloudy and turning colder, with scattered snow showers likely and high temps in 20s to near 30.


Monday: Partly sunny and cold, with high temps in the mid 20s to mid 30s.
