Sunny & Seasonable Today, More Clouds Wednesday 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


High pressure will build in and provide us with a sunny and seasonable day today. Enjoy the day today as it will likely be the brightest day we see for the next several days. Expect plenty of sunshine with highs topping off in the mid to upper 50s along the coast and 60s inland. Clouds will move into the area during the night tonight with a chance for a few showers after midnight mainly for the northern half of the state. Temperatures will be in the mid-30s to low 40s for nighttime lows.


Skies will be variably cloudy as we head into the day Wednesday. A slow moving frontal system will continue to push towards New England. At the same time, high pressure will be located just east of the region for Wednesday and Thursday, still controlling our forecast and helping to keep the frontal system west of the region and as a result keeping us mostly dry. There will be the chance for a few scattered showers each day but the majority of the days look dry. The slow moving frontal system will remain to our west on Friday with much of the same weather for us, variably cloudy with a few showers possible. The system will finally move into New England this weekend bringing us a good chance of showers or possibly some steadier rain Saturday and Sunday.



Rest of Today: mostly sunny. Highs between 58°-68°, coolest along the coast. Northeast wind around 10 MPH becoming southeast.


Tonight: increasing clouds. Scattered showers possible late mainly over northern areas. Lows between 35°-41°. Light south wind.


Wednesday: variably cloudy. Scattered showers possible mainly north of Bangor. Highs between 54°-64°. South wind 10-15 MPH.


Thursday: variably cloudy with a shower possible. Highs between 64°-73°, coolest along the coast.


Friday: mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Highs in the 60s to low 70s, coolest along the coast.


Saturday: mostly cloudy with showers likely. Steadier rain likely over southern and western parts of the state. Highs in the 60s.
