Showers & Storms Tonight, Becoming Less Humid Wednesday

Chris Ewing

Updated 56 mins ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A warm front that was slowly lifting north through Maine today kept the skies variably cloudy across our region. In areas away from coastline that saw a fair amount of sunshine earlier today the temp climbed well up into the 80s and that along with high humidity levels made it feel like a mid-summer day.  A cold front approaching New England from the west will bring showers and storms to Maine tonight and early Wednesday morning as it crosses the state, with some heavy downpours possible. A northwest breeze behind the front will usher a less humid airmass into our region as we progress through tomorrow, with the lower humidity levels continuing Thursday as well. High pressure building into the Northeast behind the cold front will produce partly to mostly sunny skies throughout New England later Wednesday through most of Friday. Temps will remain milder than normal Wednesday through Friday, with high temps ranging from the mid 70s to mid 80s.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Lingering low clouds and patchy fog will continue to slowly burn off early this afternoon giving way to variably cloudy skies for the remainder of the day.  A cold front will be approaching the state this afternoon and so we may see a few afternoon showers and thunderstorms mainly over northwestern and western areas otherwise it looks like the daylight hours will remain dry for most spots. Expect a warm and humid afternoon with highs in the mid-70s to low 80s. The cold front will cross the state tonight bringing us numerous showers and possibly a few thunderstorms. Any showers and thunderstorms could have very heavy downpours with them.

Warm & Humid with Scattered Showers/T’storms Possible Today

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 day ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

As we continue to warm things up this afternoon, the atmosphere will continue to become more unstable resulting in scattered showers and thunderstorms developing. Shower activity will be scattered this afternoon and evening so some locales will see a shower or thunderstorm and some won’t. Any showers or thunderstorms that develop could have heavy downpours with them. Otherwise, we’ll see variably cloudy skies today with a very warm and humid airmass in place. Temperatures will top off in the mid-70s to low 80s for highs this afternoon. Any showers and thunderstorms that develop will quiet down this evening followed by variably cloudy skies and areas of fog developing as the night progresses. Temperatures will remain mild tonight with lows mainly in the low to mid-60s.

September Starts Today But Temps Stay Summery

Jessica Conley

Updated 2 days ago

Today, Labor Day, starts meteorological fall. Wait, what? Well, meteorologist group the seasons into months (summer was June, July, & August) which makes it easier for record keeping. Today will be a few degrees warmer in most spots with some sun early then some showers developing in the afternoon/evening as a warm front slides through. Tuesday looks great for the kids/teachers going back to school. It’ll be nice picture taking weather with warm temps as a ridge of high pressure bumps in and brings us some sun. Showers develop overnight and stick around early Wednesday from a cold front passing though will give way to clear skies and another nice day for Thursday as another area of high pressure moves in. It’ll stay sunny Friday too.

Partly Sunny Saturday & Scattered Showers Sunday

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 days ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The ridge of high pressure that brought the sunny and pleasant conditions to all of New England the past couple of days will slowly slip off to our east Saturday. As the ridge of high pressure drifts east it will still produce partly sunny skies across Maine Saturday, with high temps ranging from the upper 60s at the shoreline to mid 70s over most of interior Maine.

Both Sun & Scattered Showers this Weekend

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 days ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

High pressure currently centered just to our west is producing sunny skies all across New England today. High temps in our area this afternoon will range from the upper 60s across the mountains to the low and mid 70s elsewhere. The ridge of high pressure will produce partly sunny skies across Maine Saturday, with high temps ranging from the low to mid 70s. On Sunday an approaching front will likely kick off some scattered showers later in the day and at night, with the bulk of the showers falling over northern parts of the state. The front will likely bring variably cloudy skies along with more scattered showers Monday as it stalls across Northern New England. A southwest breeze Sunday and Monday will usher a more humid airmass into our region and that means any pop-up showers that do develop might contain some heavy downpours.

Breezy & Cooler Today, Lots of Sun Friday

Todd Simcox

Updated 5 days ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A gusty northwest wind will continue to usher a cooler, less humid airmass into the region this afternoon. We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds for the remainder of the day with most of the clouds over northern areas and more sunshine over areas further south towards the coast. Temperatures  will be in the 70s for highs in most spots with some mid to upper 60s north. An upper level disturbance will cross the state giving us a few showers mainly over the northern half of the state. Any lingering showers this evening will end early followed by clearing skies as the night progresses. It will be cool tonight with lows in the mid-40s to low 50s from north to south.

Few Showers Possible & Cooler Today, Sunny Friday

Jessica Conley

Updated 6 days ago

We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds today with the possibility for a few showers around too as an upper level disturbance moves through the area. Temps will be much cooler today, with highs mainly in the low to mid 70s, which is normal for this time of year. By Friday, high pressure builds back in giving us sunshine for the day with temperatures right around normal again. We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds to start Saturday but showers move in later in the day and stick around for much of Sunday as a warm front and area of low pressure cross the region. It looks like we’ll see some steady rain Sunday night into early Monday. By Monday afternoon things clear up a bit. Terrible timing, I know.

Another Warm Day Today, Much Cooler Thursday

Todd Simcox

Updated 6 days ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A cold front will cross the state today giving us the chance for a few scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. Some of the thunderstorms could be strong to severe with small hail and gusty winds. The shower and thunderstorms are expected to be hit or miss so some areas may see a shower or thunderstorm and many areas likely won’t. Otherwise expect partly sunny skies and warm temperatures for the remainder of the day with highs, for most locales away from the coastline, topping off in the low to mid-80s while coastal areas stay in the mid to upper 70s due to an onshore wind. Winds will shift to the northwest tonight as the cold front moves offshore. We may see a few showers over northern areas tonight as an upper level disturbance approaches from the northwest.

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Skies will start out mostly sunny in most locales today but clouds will increase across Maine from north to south as a cold front over southern Canada moves into northern New England during the day. A southwest breeze ahead of the cold front will once again allow temps to warm into the 80s away from the coastline. The cold front will bring the chance of scattered showers and thundershowers back to our area this afternoon and evening.
