Rain Tapers Off This Morning, Gradually Drying Out This Afternoon 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


Low pressure will move along a stalled out cold front this morning and off to our east this afternoon. As the storm moves out, rain will taper to scattered showers from west to east across the state this morning through early afternoon. Northerly winds will usher drier air into the region this afternoon which will allow skies to begin to clear out over the northern half of the state with skies expected to become partly sunny while the remainder of the state sees plenty of clouds with a few sunny breaks possible. Temperatures will be a bit below average today with highs in the mid-60s to around 70°. Any lingering clouds will clear out tonight as high pressure builds into the area. Northerly winds will continue to usher drier, more comfortable air into the region which will make for a cooler and more comfortable night. Temperatures will drop to the mid-40s to low 50s for nighttime lows.


High pressure will provide us with some sunshine, lower humidity and seasonable temperatures Friday with highs topping off in the upper 70s to low 80s. High pressure will dominate our forecast this weekend with sunshine and highs reaching 70s along the coast and mainly low to mid-80s inland for both Saturday and Sunday. High pressure will slide to our east on Monday, still giving us sunshine and warm temperatures but as it slides to our east, winds will shift to the south/southwest bringing more humid air into the region for the early and middle of next week.
Today: Scattered showers tapering off this afternoon. Becoming partly sunny from Greenville to Millinocket northward this afternoon. Sunny breaks possible elsewhere. Highs between 64°-71°. North/northeast wind 8-15 MPH.


Tonight: clearing skies, cooler and comfy. Lows between 43°-53°. North wind 5-10 MPH.


Friday: mostly sunny and warmer. Highs between 78°-84°. North wind 8-15 MPH.
