Showers Likely Today, Wet & Cool Friday 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


A warm front located to our west is forecast to approach New England today bringing us clouds and numerous showers this afternoon. The combination of clouds and showers in the area today will keep temperatures about 10° cooler today than yesterday with highs in the 60s during the day. Scattered showers will continue through the night tonight with the most numerous showers occurring north and west of Bangor.


Steadier, more widespread rain is expected on Friday as the warm front lifts north and east into New England. Rain will be showery in nature during the morning then become a steadier and heavier rain during the late morning and afternoon. Temperatures will be a bit cooler Friday with highs only in the upper 50s to low 60s for most locales. A cold front is expected to move through Maine late Friday night/early Saturday morning, bringing the wet weather to an end. We’ll likely start Saturday morning with lingering clouds and a chance for some showers especially central and eastern areas followed by brightening skies from west to east across the state as the front moves out and drier air moves in. As we clear things out, temperatures will have a chance to warm a bit with highs reaching the low to mid-70s for most spots.  A ridge of high pressure will move in on Sunday giving us a beautiful day with sunshine and highs in the 70s to near 80°.
