Occasional Showers & Cool Today 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


A weakening cold front over the area will keep the conditions a bit unsettled all across Maine today. A surface storm and disturbance aloft will also swing into the Northeast tomorrow. An area of steadier rain will accompany the storm as it tracks off towards the northeast. The bulk of the rain will remain offshore but the northern fringe will likely graze coastal and Downeast Maine later this afternoon and evening. Showers will tend to taper off later Friday as the surface and upper lows depart to our northeast with even a bit of afternoon sunshine possible, especially over southern parts of the state.

Weather conditions across New England should gradually improve as we head into the weekend as both the upper and surface lows continue to move northeast through the Canadian Maritimes and high pressure begins to build into the Northeast. Skies Saturday will turn partly cloudy, with just the chance of a few widely scattered showers falling, mostly across northern parts of Maine. The high will likely bring mostly sunny skies too our region Sunday along with slowly warming temps. High temps Saturday will likely climb back up into the 70s to near 80, with highs Sunday reaching the upper 70s to low 80s.


Today: Mostly cloudy, with periods of showers, steadiest later in the day and evening, with high temps in the 60s.


Friday: Mostly to partly cloudy, with more showers likely and high temps in the mid 60s to low 70s.


Saturday: Partly sunny, with a few widely scattered showers possible and high temps in the 70s to near 80.


Sunday: Mostly sunny and warm, with high temps in the upper 70s to low 80s.


Monday: Partly sunny, with possible late day scattered showers and high temps in the 70s.
