Sunny & Pleasant Today, More Clouds & A Few PM Showers Friday 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


High pressure will slide through the area today giving us plenty of sunshine and temperatures in the 60s to near 70° for highs. Skies will remain clear through much of the night tonight and with light winds expected, temperatures will be chilly again with lows dropping to the mid-20s to mid-30s from north to south across the state.


High pressure will move east of the region Friday allowing clouds ahead of our next weathermaker to start moving into the state. We’ll start with some sunshine Friday morning followed by increasing clouds during the afternoon. A warm front pushing towards the region will give us a chance for a few showers Friday afternoon and evening mainly from the Bangor area points south and west. Temperatures will be a bit cooler Friday with highs in the mid-50s to low 60s, coolest along the coast with an onshore breeze. Low pressure is forecast to pass to our north Saturday and pull a cold front across the state late in the day and into Saturday night. As the front approaches, then crosses the state, we’ll see plenty of clouds Saturday with scattered showers throughout the day and night. Despite the clouds and showers Saturday, temperatures will be mild with highs in the 60s. Our weather will improve on Sunday as low pressure moves away from the state. We may still see a few showers Sunday but otherwise expect a brighter and drier day with temperatures in the 60s to near 70° for highs. Another system will move into the area Monday giving us another chance for showers to start the week.



Rest of Today: mostly sunny with highs between 60°-70°. Northwest wind around 10 MPH.


Tonight: mostly clear and chilly. Few clouds arriving late. Lows between 25°-37°. Light and variable wind.


Friday: increasing clouds. A few afternoon scattered showers possible especially Bangor south and west. Highs between 55°-64°, coolest along the coast. South/southeast wind 5-10 MPH.
