Bright & Very Cold Today 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


A large dome of arctic high pressure will continue to control the weather across our region for the next several days. The high will bring mostly sunny skies our region through the morning hours today followed by increasing clouds this afternoon. Despite the sunshine, temps today will only climb into the teens to near 20 across our area, with far northern Maine likely seeing high temps hold in the single numbers. A weak disturbance aloft will swing east across New England tonight and bring an increase in clouds to much of Maine this afternoon, with few flurries or snow showers possible here tonight.

Skies Wednesday will average partly to mostly cloudy as another weak disturbance aloft swings through the Northeast and once again a few scattered flurries might develop during the afternoon and evening. Temps Wednesday will once again run well below normal as highs range from the mid teens to low 20s from north to south across our region.

The later part of the work week will feature slowly moderating temps under partly cloudy skies, with a few more scattered snow showers or flurries possible later Thursday. Skies Friday will average partly sunny, with temps climbing to near freeing in much of the Bangor region. A storm will develop over the Southeastern States late this week, but at this point in time it appears the bulk of the storm will pass out to sea well south of New England. More cold weather will invade the Northeast early next week.



Today: Mostly to partly sunny and very cold, with high temps in the upper single numbers and teens from north to south.


Wednesday: Variably cloudy, with a few scattered flurries possible and still cold, with high temps in the mid teens to low 20s.


Thursday: Partly cloudy, with a few scattered snow showers possible and high temps in the upper teens and 20s.


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


Saturday: partly sunny, with high temps in the upper 20s to mid 30s.
