Few Showers, Little Sun & Milder Today 

From the WABI-TV5 & Forecast Center:


Low pressure will continue to move to our northeast today but energy aloft swinging eastward through northern New England will bring more scattered showers to our area as we end the workweek. The bulk of the showers and possible stray thundershowers will likely fall across northern parts of Maine today, with a bit more sunshine developing over southern parts of the state. High temps will range from the mid 60s over northern Maine to the low to mid 70s from the Bangor region on south this afternoon.

Weather conditions across New England will continue to improve as we head into the weekend as the upper low continues to move northeast through the Canadian Maritimes and high pressure begins to build into the Northeast. Skies Saturday will average out partly cloudy, with just the chance of a few widely scattered showers popping up, 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 mid 70s to low 80s, with highs Sunday reaching the upper 70s to mid 80s. High pressure slipping east off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline will bring partly sunny skies to New England Monday, with the risk of a few late day showers and storms developing as a cold front stretching from Ontario on south through the Great Lakes Region moves east towards New England.


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


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


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


Monday: Partly sunny, with possible late day scattered showers and storms, with high temps in the mid 70s to low 80s.


Tuesday: Variably cloudy, with scattered showers likely and high temps in the 70s.
