Few Early Showers then Partly Sunny & Milder Today 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


A cold front will give us a few showers this morning. The showers will wind down early followed by brightening skies as the day progresses. Temperatures will top off in the 50s in most locales this afternoon. The weak cold front will likely stall just south of New England later today and a small storm riding along the front might bring a few showers to mostly coastal Maine late tonight and very early 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, with temps running a bit above normal. Coolest temps Saturday will be found along the coastline due to an afternoon seabreeze. A warm front will slowly move north through New England Sunday. The front will bring variably cloudy skies to Maine Sunday, with a few scattered showers possible, mostly north of the Bangor area.

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 into the 60s 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 Tuesday, with chillier air building back into our region Wednesday.




Today: Possible scattered showers early then becoming partly to mostly sunny, with high temps in the 50s.


Saturday: Partly cloudy, with a few scattered showers early near the coastline and high temps in the 50s to near 60.


Sunday: Partly sunny, with a few scattered showers north and high temps mostly in the low to mid 50s.


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


Tuesday: Variably cloudy, with showers likely and high temps in the 50s to near 60.
