More Sun than Clouds & Warmer Today 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


High pressure building into the area will produce mostly sunny skies statewide today. Under mostly sunny skies, high temps will warm into the upper 70s to low 80s this afternoon throughout the Pine Tree State.

The high will continue to build right on top of the New England Saturday and then slowly slip off to the south of New England later Sunday. The high will bring mostly sunny skies to all of Maine both weekend days, with high temps climbing up into the 80s inland, but likely holding in the upper 70s to near 80 along the coastline. On Monday and Tuesday the high will be centered just east of the Mid-Atlantic Coastline and a southwest breeze on the backside of the high will gradually usher a more humid airmass into New England. As humidity levels climb during the middle of next week and a cold front to our north slowly approaches the risk of showers and thundershowers will increase throughout New England.


Today: Mostly sunny, with high temps in upper 70s to low 80s.


Saturday: Mostly sunny, with high temps in the upper 70s at the coast and low to mid 80s inland.


Sunday: Mostly sunny, with high temps in the 80s, except upper 70s at the coastline.


Monday: More sun than clouds, becoming more humid, with high temps in the 80s.


Tuesday: Partly sunny and muggy, with a few scattered thundershowers possible later in the day and high temps in the 80s.
