Few Hit & Miss Showers Today, Bright & Milder Over the Weekend 

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


Nearly stationary high pressure currently centered to the north of New England will force much of the moisture associated with a storm riding east from the eastern Great Lakes Region to slide off to the south of Maine today. The northern fringe of the storm’s moisture shield will interact with upper level energy and bring scattered showers to parts of our region today with the bulk of the hit and miss showers falling over southern and central parts of Maine. The high to our north will keep the skies brightest north of the Bangor region today. High temps today will range from the upper 60s along the coast to the low to mid 70s inland.

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 Tuesday. 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 70s, with highs Sunday through Tuesday likely reaching the mid 70s to mid 80s, along with slowly increasing humidity levels.


Today: Variably cloudy, with a few scattered showers possible mainly during the afternoon. High temps in the upper 60s to mid 70s.


Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny, with high temps in the 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 to mid 80s.


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