Sunny, Breezy & Milder Today 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


A ridge of high pressure will move to the southeast of New England today, setting us up with a southwest breeze which will allow temps will begin to warm back up all across Maine. A weak cold front may bring a few showers to parts of Northern New England Friday as it drifts south through our area, but otherwise skies will average partly cloudy and temps will climb into the 50s across much of Maine.

The cold front will likely stall just south of New England later Friday and a small storm riding along the front might bring a few showers to mostly coastal Maine Saturday morning. Weak high pressure will build back into our region later Saturday as the storm slides off to our northeast. The high will bring generally fair weather to Maine later Saturday through Sunday, with temps running a bit above normal both Saturday and Sunday.

The combination of high pressure building off the East Coast and a storm riding north up to the west of New England will bring an increasing southerly breeze to Maine Monday. The southerly wind will help usher milder air into New England for the beginning of the workweek, with much of Maine likely climbing above 60 degrees for the first time this year. A slow moving cold front approaching New England from the west will bring an increased risk of showers across Maine Monday night and Tuesday.


Today: Mostly to partly sunny, with high temps in the upper 40s to low 50s.


Friday: Variably cloudy, with possible scattered showers and high temps in the 50s.


Saturday: Variably cloudy, with a few scattered showers early near the coastline and high temps in the 50s.


Sunday: Partly sunny, with high temps mostly in the low to mid 50s.


Monday: Partly sunny and breezy, with high temps in the mid 50s to mid 60s.
