Partly Cloudy, with Hit and Miss Showers and Storms this Weekend

Updated 6 hours ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Skies both weekend days will feature a mixture of clouds and sun along with some scattered showers and storms as the weather pattern across our region will remain status quo. The pattern continues to feature a storm in the upper levels of the atmosphere centered north of the Great lakes Region. The storm aloft to our northwest will continue to periodically pull little bundles of energy through New England and each time a bundle of energy slips through Maine a few hit and miss showers and thundershowers will develop across our area, but otherwise the skies will remain partly cloudy.  High temps both Saturday and Sunday will range from the mid 70s to low 80s across the Pine Tree State.

More Sun & Warmer Today, Unsettled Weekend

Updated 16 hours ago

 

A ridge of high pressure is in the area today and will bring mostly sunny skies. Highs will make it into the upper 70s and low 80s. Saturday and Sunday become unsettled again with highs dropping a couple of degrees. We’ll have more clouds around this weekend as well. It looks like the slight chance for a few isolated showers or thunderstorms Saturday then I think we’ll stay dry for Sunday. Right now Monday is looking cloudy with showers likely and thunderstorms possible, as a low pressure system moves through the region. Partly sunny for Tuesday as a trough of low pressure brings some clouds to the region.

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A trough of low pressure associated with a pool of cool air aloft will continue to produce scattered showers and thundershowers across our region this evening.  Showers and storms will die off by later tonight and patchy fog will develop across our region towards daybreak tomorrow. Low temps tonight will fall into the mid to upper 50s.

Sun and Clouds Today With A Few Showers Possible

Jessica Conley

Updated 2 days ago

We’ll have a mix of sun and clouds again today after the early morning fog lifts. There is a trough of low pressure that extends into our area that will bring the chance for some afternoon or evening showers and thunderstorms to the region, especially for northern and western areas and in the mountains and higher elevations.

Both Sun & Scattered Showers Thursday

Chris Ewing

Updated 2 days ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The overall weather pattern across the Northeastern United States and southeastern Canada will not change much tonight and tomorrow. The storm in the upper levels of the atmosphere currently located just north of the Great Lakes and its associated pool of colder than normal air aloft will continue to keep the conditions a bit unsettled across New England Thursday. A trough swinging around the upper low to our west will bring some hit and miss showers and thundershowers to Maine tomorrow, with the bulk of the showers and storms falling over western and northern parts of Maine. Between the hit and miss showers tomorrow the skies across our region will average partly sunny and the temps will range from the low 70s to around 80.

Sun & Clouds Today with the Chance for a Few Late Day Showers

Jessica Conley

Updated 3 days ago

We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds today after some morning fog. There is a trough of low pressure that extends into our area that will bring the chance for some afternoon or evening showers and thunderstorms to the region. The best chance for these will be in northern and western areas, in the mountains and higher elevations. For tomorrow, much of the same as another trough moves into the region. Highs tomorrow will make it a few degrees warmer but the chance for some isolated showers and thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon and evening remains.

Partly Sunny, With a Few Scattered Showers the next Few Days

Chris Ewing

Updated 3 days ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Skies turned partly sunny today as the storm and cold front that brought the showers and thunderstorms to Maine Sunday and Monday continued to move north and east of New England.  Skies tonight will be partly to mostly clear as drier air continues to spill into our region and by dawn temps will be running several degrees below normal as temps range from the upper 40s to mid 50s. Over the next few days a storm in the upper levels of the atmosphere will remain parked just to the north of the Great Lakes Region and that will likely allow a few hit and miss showers and storms to dot our region each of the next few afternoons, otherwise the skies will run partly sunny Wednesday and Thursday. Across Maine the best shot of seeing the brief pop-up showers and storms the next couple of days will be across the north and mountains. Temps the next few days will range from low 70s to very low 80s, which is just a bit below normal.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Skies will continue to brighten this afternoon as low pressure continues to move off to our north. Humidity levels will be dropping as well so plan on a more comfortable feel to the air as the day progresses. Temperatures will be more seasonable today with highs in the 70s to near 80°. We’ll see clear to partly cloudy skies for the night tonight with cool temperatures. Nighttime temperatures will drop to the upper 40s to mid-50s for lows.

Drier & Less Humid Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 days ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Somewhat drier air will gradually build into the Northeast today as the surface low continues to lift up into southeastern Canada. We will likely see more in the way of sunshine today and Wednesday as the surface storm continues to ride off to our northeast, but a storm in the upper levels of the atmosphere will likely remain parked near the Great Lakes Region and that will likely allow a few hit and miss showers and storms to dot our region during the middle of the workweek. A bit more sun the next few afternoons will allow the temps today and Wednesday to range from the mid 70s to low 80s.

Showers Likely Today, Drier & Less Humid Tuesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 5 days ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

The gray and gloomy weather for the remainder of the day. Low pressure will continue to push towards New England this afternoon, spreading showers and a few thunderstorms into the area from southwest to northeast across the state. This is the same batch of showers and thunderstorms that caused all of the severe weather around the Greater Boston area this morning. That being said… the showers and thunderstorms have weakened and therefore severe weather is not expected here but any thunderstorms we see could have some gusty winds and heavy downpours with them. With the clouds and showers in place, temperatures will be a bit below average today with highs only reaching the low to mid-70s for most locales. Some upper 60s are possible along the coast with a wind off the water. Showers will continue tonight, beginning to wind down from south to north across the state after midnight.

Muggy, with On & Off Showers & Storms Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 days ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure along with some energy aloft will swing northeast through New England today. As the storm rides northeast into New England it will interact with the increasingly humid air moving into Maine and showers will become more numerous and heavier today mainly during the afternoon. The combination of clouds, showers and an onshore breeze will hold afternoon temps in the 70s today.

Muggy, with On & Off Showers & Storms through Monday

Chris Ewing

Updated 6 days ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The ridge of high pressure that brought the bright and pleasant weather to New England the past few days continues to move east off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline. The combination of the high to our southeast and a slowly approaching storm both at the surface and aloft will bring unsettled conditions to Maine later today and Monday as showers and storms over western and central New England continue to slowly move eastward. A southerly breeze between the high to our east and the storm to our west will help to pull a more humid airmass up the Eastern Seaboard the next few days.

Partly Sunny & Mild Today, Showers & More Humid Sunday

Chris Ewing

Updated 7 days ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A ridge of high pressure moving east across Southern New England will continue to control the conditions across Maine today as it slides eastward. A disturbance aloft swinging across Southeastern Canada might kick off a few widely scattered showers or storms this afternoon, mostly across far northern parts of Maine, but otherwise the weather should be fair and pleasant. Clouds will begin to gradually build into New England later Saturday evening as the high slips off to our southeast. High temps today will range from the upper 70s to the low 80s all across the Pine Tree State.

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 week ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

The going forecast looks good for the remainder of the afternoon with partly to mostly sunny skies and high temperatures reaching the mid-70s to low 80s. High pressure will bring us nice weather for Saturday as well with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs again in the mid-70s to low 80s. Clouds will be most prevalent over northern and western areas this afternoon and again on Saturday as an upper low spins over northern Quebec. Weak disturbances wrapping around the upper low could give us a few isolated showers mainly for northern and western parts of the state both days.

Brightening Skies, Cooler and Less Humid This Afternoon

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 week ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

The shower activity has come to an end for most locations with the exception of coastal Downast cities/towns where some showers still linger as of noontime. The showers will continue to move out early this afternoon and we’ll continue to see skies brighten from northwest to southeast across the state (where they haven’t already) as drier air moves in. Temperatures will be about 5°-10° cooler for most locales compared to yesterday with highs in the mid-70s to around 80° this afternoon. Dewpoints will continue falling into the mid-40s to mid-50s (where they haven’t already) this afternoon giving us a much more comfortable feel to the air. Skies will be clear tonight with comfortable humidity levels and cool temperatures. Temperatures will bottom out in the mid-40s to mid-50s from north to south.

Showers will linger early this morning in coastal and eastern portions of the state. Temps today will only make it into the low to mid 70s behind the front. Friday we’ll settle back into our nice quiet pattern with sunshine and highs in the mid 70s at the coast and in the low 80s inland. Saturday is looking like a fabulous start to the weekend with lots of sunshine. Sunday some showers and thunderstorms move in as another area of low pressure comes into the region.

Scattered Showers & T’storms Likely This Afternoon, Some Possibly Severe

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 week ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Hazy sunshine, very warm and humid conditions will continue this afternoon. Temperatures will top off around 80° along the coast and mid-80s to around 90° inland. A strong cold front will cross the state this afternoon and evening. The front will interact with the heat and humidity giving us a good chance for showers and thunderstorms. Some of the thunderstorms could be strong to severe with frequent lightning, heavy downpours, damaging winds and hail. Showers and thunderstorms are already developing near the Maine/Quebec border as of noontime and will gradually push southward towards Bangor by mid-late afternoon and finally towards the coast by evening. The front is expected to stall out just offshore tonight as an area of low pressure develops along the front. This will keep clouds and some scattered showers over areas south of Greenville and Millinocket through the nighttime hours while areas further north see clearing skies as the night progresses.

Hazy & Humid, with Scattered Strong Storms Later Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 week ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Skies will start out partly to mostly sunny today and temps will quickly warm into the 80s across most of Maine by noontime. An approaching cold front will interact will the warm, muggy and unstable airmass over our region later today and that will lead to developing thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening hours. The thunderstorms will slide from northwest to southeast across Maine today as the cold front sweeps southeast across New England later in the day. The combination of the unstable airmass on top of our region and the sharp cold front entering Maine will likely allow some of the storms to become strong to severe this afternoon and evening. The main threat from the thunderstorms are a strong and gusty wind, along with hail.

We’ll stay sunny for the day today as an area of high pressure to the south keeps us nice and clear.  Highs will be a bit warmer, in the upper 70s at the coast and in the mid 80s inland. It’ll become more humid today too. The humidity will stick around for Wednesday and temps will be hot, in the upper 70s at the coast and in the upper 80s inland. Then a cold front moves though the area in the afternoon and evening bringing rain and thunderstorms. Some of the storms could be severe. Showers may linger into early Thursday morning in far eastern portions of the state. Thursday’s temps will only make it into the low to mid 70s behind the front. Friday we’ll settle back into our nice quiet pattern with sunshine and highs in the mid 70s at the coast and in the low 80s inland. Saturday is looking like a fabulous start to the weekend with lots of sunshine.
