Brighter & Breezy Today 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


Strong high pressure over Quebec will move towards northern New Brunswick today, keeping an active north to northeast breeze blowing across the Pine Tree State. The northeast wind will keep the temps coolest along the coastline today as highs range from the low 50s near the shoreline to the mid 50s to near 60 inland. The high will continue to control our weather much of Wednesday as it slowly drifts southeast into the Gulf of Maine. Once again temps will be coolest along the shoreline due to an onshore breeze.

Clouds will be on the increase across our region later Wednesday afternoon and night as the powerful storm that produced all the severe weather in the middle of the country the past few days continues to slowly move in our direction. The storm will bring periods of rain to Maine from later Wednesday night right on into early Friday. An onshore breeze along with the rainfall will keep temps running well below normal Thursday and that will preclude our region from seeing any severe storms. Skies will partially clear Friday as the storm gradually moves off to our east, but the atmosphere will still be unstable enough to cause a few scattered showers to pop up across Maine.


Today: More sun than clouds, breezy and cool, with high temps in the 50s to near 60.


Wednesday: Partly sunny and breezy, with increasing clouds late and high temps ranging from the mid to upper 40s at the coast to the low to mid 50s inland.


Thursday: Cool, with periods of rain and high temps in the 40s to near 50.


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


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