Fair & Milder Today 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


As high pressure slips off to our east a southerly breeze will develop here today 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 just ahead of a cold front. The approaching cold front will bring partly cloudy skies to Maine Saturday, with a few scattered snow showers possible across far northern parts of the state. Colder air will begin to filter back into Maine Saturday night as the cold front slides offshore and a northwest breeze develops here. Sunday will be bright and chilly as a bubble of arctic high pressure centered north of the Great Lakes region moves east and controls our weather.

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



Today: Mostly to partly sunny, with high temps in the low to mid 30s.


Saturday: Mixed sun and clouds and milder, with a few flurries north and 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, few snow showers possible and cold, with high temps in the 20s to near 30.


Tuesday: Variably cloudy and milder, with scattered snow and rain showers and high temps in the 30s to near 40.
