Cold Weather Continues the Next Few Days 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


In general arctic high pressure will continue to control the weather across our region the next few days. A weak disturbance aloft will swing east across New England early today and bring the southern and central parts of Maine some scattered flurries and snow showers. Skies today will start mostly cloudy, with any early flurries and snow showers coming to an end and by later in the day skies will turn partly sunny. Temps this afternoon will once again run well below normal as highs range from the mid teens to mid 20s from north to south across our region.

High pressure centered moving east through southern Quebec will bring mostly sunny skies to Maine Thursday, but once again temps will run well below normal as highs reach the upper teens north and 20s south. A southerly breeze will develop across New England as the high to our north Thursday slips east off the Nova Scotia Coastline. The southerly wind will help usher milder air into the Pine Tree State as highs climb into the upper 20s to mid 30s from north to south. Temps Saturday will likely be the mildest we have seen so far this month as highs reach the 30s. A cold front will bring mostly cloudy skies and scattered snow showers to our region Saturday, with brighter and colder conditions returning to Maine on Sunday.



Today: Partly to mostly cloudy, with a few scattered flurries possible early and still cold, with high temps in the mid teens to mid 20s.


Thursday: Mostly sunny, with high temps in the upper teens and 20s.


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


Saturday: More clouds than sun, scattered snow showers likely and milder, with high temps in the 30s.


Sunday: Partly sunny and cooler, with high temps in the 20s to low 30s.
