Periods of Rain Today

From the WABI-TV5 & CW  Forecast Center:

Low pressure will bring periods of rain to Maine through much of today. An onshore breeze along with the rainfall will keep temps running below normal today and that will preclude our region from seeing any strong or severe storms. Rainfall by later today will generally range between .50″ and 1.25″.

Skies will partially clear Friday as the storm gradually moves off to our east, but energy aloft nearby will still keep the atmosphere unstable enough to cause a few scattered showers to pop up across Maine, with the bulk of the showers Friday falling across northern parts of the state. A westerly breeze on Friday will bring milder conditions to our region as high temps range from the mid 50s to mid 60s from north to south across the Pine Tree State.

Skies across Maine will once again feature clouds and some limited sun Saturday due to a storm moving east across Quebec. The storm may kick off some scattered showers in our region as we start the weekend, with the bulk of the showers being found across northern parts of our area. Temps Saturday will be rather seasonable as highs range from the mid 50s north to the low to mid 60s in the Bangor Region. Another stronger storm aloft will rotate into the Northeast later Sunday and Monday and bring another round of showers and cooler than normal temps to New England. High pressure will build into the Northeast and bring drier conditions to our region both Tuesday and Wednesday.

 

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

 

Friday: Variably cloudy, few scattered leftover showers possible and high temps in the mid 50s to mid 60s.

 

Saturday: More clouds than sun, possible scattered showers and high temps in the mid 50s to mid 60s.

 

Sunday: Mostly cloudy, with showers likely developing and high temps in the 50s to near 60.

 

Monday: Mostly cloudy, with lingering showers and high temps in the 50s to near 60.

 

Tuesday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the 50s to near 60.
