Scattered Showers Today, Sunny & Pleasant Wednesday 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


A stalled cold front will combine with an upper level disturbance moving through the state today to give us clouds and showers through early-mid afternoon especially for areas north of Bangor. The showers are expected to wind down from west to east across the state later this afternoon followed by brightening skies as high pressure begins to slide into the area.  With clouds and showers over the area today, temperatures will be much cooler than yesterday with highs only reaching the 60s to near 70° this afternoon. Skies will clear out during the night tonight as with a light north wind out tonight, we’ll see a much cooler night ahead with lows expected to bottom out in the 40s for most locales.


Sunshine comes back Wednesday as high pressure builds into the area. Thanks to the sunshine, temperatures will warm back up with highs reaching the 70s to near 80° Wednesday afternoon. A warm front is forecast to approach the area Thursday bringing us clouds and numerous showers. Low pressure to our west will slowly push towards the region Friday keeping us under the clouds and scattered showers for the end of the work week. With plenty of clouds and showers Thursday and Friday, temperatures will be cooler with highs in the 60s to near 70°. Low pressure will push a cold front through the state early Saturday morning. We’ll still see a few showers around the state Saturday morning but as the front moves to our east, the showers will wind down and skies will brighten as the day progresses. With sunshine returning to the forecast Saturday, plan on a warmer day with highs mainly in the mid-70s.



Rest of Today: variably cloudy with scattered showers, most numerous north of Bangor.  A thunderstorm possible. Cooler with highs between 64°-73°. North/northeast wind around 10 MPH.
