Variably Cloudy Today, Humid Air On The Way 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


A cold front located to our north and west will continue to approach the state this afternoon bringing us some clouds and the chance for some showers and thunderstorms as well. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy today and shower chances will increase as the afternoon progresses. The best chance of showers will be confined to areas north and west of Bangor. A dry afternoon is expected from the Bangor area points south and east. Temperatures will top off in the 70s to near 80°, coolest along the coast with a southerly breeze. The front will continue to push towards New England tonight. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible through the overnight hours mainly north and west of Bangor. Southerly winds will usher in higher humidity during the nighttime hours.


The cold front will move into Maine and stall out across the state during the day Wednesday. With the front in the state, we’ll see scattered showers and thunderstorms possible for all locations. Southwesterly winds will usher a more humid airmass into the area making for a very sticky Wednesday. Low pressure will move along the stalled front on Thursday giving us some steadier rain for Thursday. It’ll still be very humid on Thursday as well. The front is forecast to move out of the area Thursday night, bringing the rain to an end. Drier, brighter and less humid weather will return for the end of the week Friday and Saturday.
