The forecast becomes rather simple (and nice!) for the next five days. We saw a showers move through overnight, some of which were more along the lines of steady rain at times. We’ll see a few of these showers lingering today as the low continues to move to the east. A ridge of high pressure is building in for this afternoon and that will help to clear us out. Highs today will be a bit below seasonable temps, in the upper 50s and low 60s.
Things really cool off tonight. Lows will drop into the 30s in most places. Northern locations (Houlton this includes you) could see temps in the upper 20s! Very cold. We will have clear skies tonight and fairly calm winds so this will really set us up for what we call radiational cooling.
Tomorrow looks great with highs in the 60s and low 70s and sunshine throughout the day. Temps will be coolest along the coast. Overnight lows won’t be as cold. Looks like it’ll stay above freezing all across the board. The high moves to the east for Friday and clouds will return to the area by Friday afternoon. We’ll still be able to make it into the 60s. It looks like we might see a few scattered showers too on Friday night, especially in western locations as a low pressure system moves into the area.
This weekend is shaping up to be quite nice with another high pressure system moving in. Saturday highs should reach seasonable levels in the 60s with partly to mostly sunny skies. I think Sunday is the real winner with highs from the mid 60s to the mid 70s with sunshine all day.
Today: Highs in the upper 50s and low 60s with a few showers early then clearing skies.
Tonight: Cold. Lows in the 30s with some 20s farthest north with clear skies.
Thursday: Highs in the 60s and low 70s with sun.
Friday: Highs in the 60s with some sun to start, increasing clouds in the afternoon, and a few evening showers, especially west.
Saturday: Highs in the 60s with partly to mostly sunny skies.
Sunday: Nice. Highs range from the mid 60s to the mid 70s with sunshine.
