Dry & Cool For Trick & Treating, Possible Storm this Weekend

Chris Ewing

Updated 11 hours ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure will move into the Ohio River Valley this morning before it begins to redevelop just off the southeast U.S. Coastline. Where the storm emerges along the East Coast and how quickly it turns north as it begins to intensify will determine how much precipitation we see in Maine this weekend. If the storm develops well off the southeast U.S. Coastline later today, our region will only see a little light rain and snow over the weekend, but a storm development closer to the coastline will lead to a much greater chance of seeing rain, mix and snow in much of Maine along with a period of strong and gusty winds later Saturday into Sunday. If the storm remains close enough to the New England Coastline as it lifts up to our east later this weekend a few to several inches of snow could accumulate in parts of Maine, especially over some of the higher elevations of the eastern part of the state. Stay tuned to WABI-TV5 for the latest updates on this POSSIBLE early season winter storm.

Todd Simcox

Updated 4 days ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Showers are lingering over areas north and east of Bangor as of noontime today. The showers are expected to continue to taper off early this afternoon followed by brightening skies as the afternoon progresses with a ridge of high pressure building into the area. With low pressure to our east and high pressure building in from the west, the pressure gradient will be fairly tight over the area which will result in a breezy northwest wind averaging 10-20 MPH with gusts to 30-35 MPH possible throughout the day. Temperatures will be seasonable today with highs in the upper 40s to mid-50s. Skies will start clear tonight followed by a few clouds arriving late as low pressure approaches from the Great Lakes region.

Some Sun To Start the Week, Chance For SNOW Next Weekend

Jessica Conley

Updated 4 days ago

A ridge of high pressure building in will bring brightening skies for most of us today seeing a mix of sun and clouds. It will also create a tight pressure gradient which means things will be a bit breezy today. Winds will be from the northwest at around 10-20 mph. By Tuesday, the ridge of high pressure brings us mainly sunny skies. Highs make it into the mid to upper 50s (about five degrees above normal for this time of year). Wednesday, another cold front will cross the state. That means rain showers for most of the morning and possibly into the early afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 50s and low 60s. Things start to clear out Wednesday night. We’ll see mainly sunny skies for Thursday & Friday before a low pressure system approaches the area and moves though next weekend. Friday night, Halloween, looks chilly so dress the kiddos warm.

Wet, Blustery & Raw Next Few Days

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 week ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The combination of high pressure parked over central Quebec and the intensifying storm system along of the Mid-Atlantic Coastline will combine to bring a prolonged period of rain and wind to our region. Rain will continue to fall across Maine today and Thursday as winds both at the surface and aloft continue to pull moisture into New England from the Atlantic Ocean. At times the rain will fall heavily throughout the Pine Tree State, beginning later today and likely continuing right into Friday morning. By the time the rain taper off later Friday much of our area will have received between 2 and 4″, with possibly a bit more over some of the hillier locations of Maine.
