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

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 hour ago

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 tonight and tomorrow. The northern fringe of the storms moisture shield will interact with upper level energy and bring scattered showers to parts of our region tonight and tomorrow, with the bulk of the hit and miss showers falling over southern and central parts of Maine, with little if any shower activity occurring up north. The high to our north will keep the skies brightest north of the Bangor region tomorrow. High temps tomorrow will range from the upper 60s along the coast to the low to mid 70s inland.

Variably Cloudy & Slightly Cooler the Next Few Days

Chris Ewing

Updated 14 hours ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

High pressure to our north will force a series of weak storms to pass offshore well south of Maine as they move from the Ohio River Valley to well off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline today through Saturday. With the storm track later this week remaining well south of Maine the skies across our region should average partly sunny and temps will run in the 70s to near 80 this afternoon and be a bit cooler Friday and Saturday as a slightly cooler airmass filters south into New England from the Canadian Maritimes. A northeast breeze late this week will keep the temps coolest along the coastline both Friday and Saturday. A couple of weak disturbances aloft today through Saturday will keep the atmosphere a bit unstable and that could lead to a few widely scattered showers popping up across the Pine Tree State, but most towns will likely not see them. The best chance for seeing a brief shower or two over the next couple of days will be over the western parts of Maine.

Mix of Sun & Clouds Today and Friday, Nice Weekend Ahead

Todd Simcox

Updated 5 hours ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A weakening storm system over the Great Lakes region will push some clouds into our area today and Friday. Each of the days will also feature a slight chance of a widely scattered afternoon shower or thunderstorm however the thinking is that the chances are very minimal and that most locales will remain dry. That being said, today and tomorrow will be pretty good days overall featuring more clouds than we’ve seen the past few days. With more clouds in place today, temperatures will be a bit cooler today with highs in the 70s to near 80°. Friday’s temperatures will be even cooler due to the clouds and a cooler northeast wind, expect highs in the low to mid-70s Friday afternoon.

A ridge of high pressure currently located just south of James Bay will build east over southeastern Canada and bring New England mostly sunny skies along with milder temps the next few days. The combination of more sunshine and a milder airmass will help temps climb back up to more seasonable levels today as highs reach the mid 70s to near 80. The high will bring mostly sunny skies to Maine Wednesday, with high temps ranging from the mid 70s to low 80s.

Variably Cloudy With Scattered Showers This Weekend

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 days ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm in the upper levels of the atmosphere slowing moving east across southern Ontario and Quebec will continue to control the weather across Maine today.  The upper level low and its associated pool of cool air aloft will keep the atmosphere over northern New England rather unstable, leading to skies ranging from partly to mostly cloudy with a few scattered showers popping-up from time to time. The bulk of the showers will likely fall over the north and mountains.

Rain Tapering to Showers Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 week ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The steadier rainfall will taper off from south to north today as the surface low lifts up towards the Bay of Fundy later in the day. The best chance of seeing a little sun later today will be over southern and central parts of Maine, but the atmosphere aloft will continue to remain unstable even later in the day and that will likely lead to more pop-up showers developing. High temps today will range from the upper 60s north to the low to mid 70s south.

Becoming Breezy, with Developing Showers Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 week ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

An unusually strong storm system for the summer months that has been soaking some areas from the lower Great Lakes on down into portions of the Mid-Atlantic will continue to move east and northeast into the New England as we move through today. The storm will bring increasing and thickening clouds to the Maine this morning with showers spreading from west to east as the day moves along.

The combination of clouds, rain and a gusty onshore breeze will hold the temps in the mid 60s to low 70s both today and Thursday.

The pool of cool air aloft that has produced the widely scattered showers and storms across Maine each of the past several afternoons will finally move far enough to our east tonight that skies tomorrow should remain partly to mostly sunny all day long.

A surface high pressure system will bring us some sunshine during the daytime hours as we go through today and tomorrow. We will have a chance for some isolated showers and thunderstorms as we get into the afternoons and evenings though as some disturbances sweep through around an upper level low pressure system. The high shifts offshore Tuesday night and a surface low pressure system moves in for Wednesday. The low will bring clouds and showers to the region by Wednesday afternoon/evening. Rain sticks around for much of the day on Thursday. The entire area will pick up a half inch to one inch of rain. Temperatures will be much cooler for the second half of the work week too with significant cloud cover on Wednesday and Thursday.  Things start to clear up by Friday.
