Mostly Sunny & Milder the Next Few Days 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


A ridge of high pressure currently located just south of James Bay will build east over southeastern Canada and bring New England mostly sunny skies along with milder temps the next few days. The combination of more sunshine and a milder airmass will help temps climb back up to more seasonable levels today as highs reach the mid 70s to near 80. The high will bring mostly sunny skies to Maine Wednesday, with high temps ranging from the mid 70s to low 80s.

The high will continue to control the weather across our region as it builds to our north and forces a series of storms to move from the Ohio River Valley to well off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline Thursday and Friday. With the storm track late this week remaining well south of Maine the skies across our region should remain partly to mostly clear and temps will run in the 70s to near 80 which is rather normal for this time of year. A northeast breeze late this week will keep the temps coolest along the coastline both Thursday and Friday. A storm system will slowly develop off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline late this workweek and weekend, but at this time it appears the storm will be forced to move east well south of Maine as high pressure to our north continues to control the conditions in our region.


Today: More sun than clouds, with high temps in the 70s to near 80.


Wednesday: Mostly sunny, with high temps in the mid 70s to low 80s.


Thursday: Mixed sun and clouds, with high temps in the 70s to near 80.


Friday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the 70s.


Saturday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the upper 60s to mid 70s.
