Brighter & Milder this Weekend 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


A ridge of high pressure currently centered over Quebec is forcing a weak storm over New York State to take a track off to the south of New England tonight and early tomorrow. With the storm sliding southeast of our region most of its precipitation will also slip off to our south, but a weak disturbance aloft riding through New England tonight will help kick off a few hit and miss showers across the Pine Tree State, but most locals will stay rain-free this evening. Low temps tonight throughout our region will hold in the low to mid 50s.

The high to our north will slowly settle south over the weekend and early next week. The high will bring partly to mostly sunny skies to Maine Saturday and mostly sunny skies Sunday through Wednesday. As the high settles to our south a southwest breeze will develop all across New England and that will cause temps to warm back up to above normal levels. Temps Saturday will run in the low to mid 70s, with highs Sunday through Wednesday likely reaching the mid 70s to mid 80s, along with slowly increasing humidity levels. A cold front approaching Maine from the north will bring an increased risk of scattered showers to our region later Thursday into Friday.



Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny, with high temps in the low to mid 70s.


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


Monday: Mostly sunny, warm and more humid, with high temps in the upper 70s to mid 80s.


Tuesday: Bright, warm and rather humid, with high temps in the upper 70s and 80s.


Wednesday: More sun than clouds, warm and humid, with high temps in the upper 70s and 80s.
