Lots of Sun & Milder Today, Scattered Showers Return Friday 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


High pressure sliding over the area today will provide us with lots of sunshine and highs in the 60s to low 70s. Temperatures will be coolest along the coast due to an onshore breeze. Clouds will be on the increase during the night tonight as a weak cold front approaches from the northwest. With increasing clouds tonight, temperatures won’t be quite as chilly as this morning with nighttime lows in the upper 30s to mid-40s.


Low pressure will pull a weak cold front into the area Friday. This will bring us clouds and some scattered showers and thunderstorms especially during the afternoon. The most numerous showers will fall to the north and west of the Bangor area, closer to the approaching front. Temperatures will be seasonable Friday with highs in the 60s to near 70°. The cold front will fizzle out over the area Friday night into Saturday. We’ll hang onto clouds and a few lingering showers Saturday morning but should see brightening skies during the afternoon as a ridge of high pressure builds into the area. High pressure will move in on Sunday and give us a beautiful day with sunshine and highs near or a little above 70°. A weak cold front will move in on Monday bringing clouds and a few showers back into our forecast.

Tonight: increasing clouds. Lows between 38°-46°. Light south wind.
