From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:
High pressure approaching New England from the west will bring mostly to partly sunny skies to our region today, but once again temps will run well below normal as a gusty northwest breeze continues to pull cold air south into New England from central Canada. High temps will hold in the mid 20s to low 30s despite a good deal of sunshine. The wind will gust to over 25 mph much of today, but as the high gets closer late in the day the wind will slowly diminish.
A storm moving up to the west of New England later Friday will pull a warm front through Maine during the day. The approaching front will bring some mixed snow, sleet and rain to our region late Thursday night and early Friday, but as the warm front lifts to our north the wintry mix should change to all rain as temps warm to the upper 30s to mid 40s. Skies will begin to clear back out as the storms trailing cold front sweeps through our area later Friday night. High pressure will bring fair weather to Maine Saturday, but a storm sliding east just south of our region might Sunday bring another shot of snow and rain to our area for the second half of the weekend.
Today: Mostly to partly sunny, blustery and cold, with high temps in the mid 20s to low 30s.
Friday: Morning wintry mix changing to rain showers, with high temps in the upper 30s to mid 40s.
Saturday: Partly sunny then increasing clouds, with high temps in the upper 30s to low 40s.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy, with snow and rain likely and high temps in the 30s.
Monday: Partly sunny and blustery, with high temps in the mid 30s to low 40s.
