Sunny & Cold Today 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


High pressure will continue to control the weather across our region today. The area of high pressure will move east through southern Quebec today and bring mostly sunny skies to Maine during the day, but once again temps will run well below normal as highs reach the mid teens north and 20s south.

As the high slips off to our east a southerly breeze will develop here on Friday and that will allow temps to rebound back to more seasonable levels as highs reach up into the 30s across most of Maine. Temps Saturday across Maine will likely be the mildest we have seen so far this month as highs reach the mid 30s to low 40s. An approaching cold front will bring mostly cloudy skies, with a few scattered snow showers to mostly northern Maine Saturday, with brighter and colder conditions returning to Maine Sunday as a northwest breeze picks up on the backside of the cold front.

The beginning of the workweek will be generally fair and cold, with a disturbance aloft later Monday likely bringing a few snow showers to the Northeast. A much stronger storm developing over the middle of the country early next week might bring some heavier snow or mixed precipitation to Maine next Wednesday or Thursday.



Today: Mostly sunny, with high temps in the mid teens to mid 20s.


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


Saturday: More clouds than sun, scattered snow showers likely north and milder, with high temps in the mid 30s to low 40s.


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


Monday: Variably cloudy, possible snow showers and cold, with high temps in the 20s to near 30.
