Variably Cloudy & Slightly Cooler Today 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

A slightly cooler airmass will build into our region today on an active northwest breeze, with temps across northern Maine holding in the upper 30s and in the low to mid 40s across the rest of the state. Skies will average partly sunny over southern and central Maine today with mostly cloudy skies being found across the north.

High pressure moving east across New England will bring mostly sunny skies to Maine Friday morning. As the high departs to our east clouds will begin to increase across the Pine Tree State later Friday as a storm over the Great Lakes Region begins to head northeast. The primary storm will move to the west of New England Friday night, while at the same time a secondary storm develops over Southern New England. The new secondary storm will slide northeast and bring a mixed bag of precipitation to our region later Friday night and Saturday morning. The wintry mix of precipitation will turn to mostly rain over much or our region Saturday morning as temps warm to the upper 30s north and low to mid 40s south.

An upper level low over Quebec will keep skies mostly cloudy up north Sunday, while the rest of the region turns partly sunny. Temps Sunday will run a few degrees below normal. High pressure will bring fair and pleasant weather to our region Monday, with a storm likely bringing rain back to Maine later Monday night and Tuesday.
