Northerly winds will remain strong today averaging 10-20 MPH and gusting to 30 MPH at times which will add an extra chill to the air. Temperatures are expected to be seasonable this afternoon with highs in the upper 30s to mid-40s but feeling more like it’s in the mid-20s to around 30° at times with the wind factored in.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Lots of clouds around for the remainder of our Monday. Precipitation will continue to gradually wind down as low pressure moves away from the state. Scattered snow showers are possible over northern areas while the rest of the state see occasional light mix and/or rain this afternoon. With high pressure positioned to our north and west and low pressure to our south and east, northerly winds will remain strong today averaging 15-25 MPH with higher gusts to 30-35 MPH possible. Temperatures won’t move much today with highs only topping off in the mid-30s to near 40°, a few degrees below average for this time of year. Low pressure will continue to pull away from the area tonight, taking all the precipitation with it and giving way to clearing skies late tonight as a ridge of high pressure begins to take over.

Increasing Clouds Today, Snow Likely Wednesday

Jessica Conley

Updated 5 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will slide east of the region this morning giving us a mostly sunny start to the day. Clouds will gradually increase this afternoon as low pressure approaches from the south. Low pressure is forecast to rapidly strengthen off the east coast of the U.S. today and Wednesday. The latest track takes the storm east of New England and towards the eastern tip of Nova Scotia. This will keep the bulk of the storm just offshore and just graze eastern Massachusetts as well as central and eastern Maine with moderate to heavy snow Downeast and lighter snow or snow showers elsewhere. Our weather will be quiet for Thursday as a ridge of high pressure slides into the area. Weak low pressure is forecast to pass just north of the state on Friday giving us some mixed rain and snow showers. Milder air will move in for the end of the week too with temps on Friday topping off in the upper 30s to mid-40s.

Variably Cloudy & Rather Blustery Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 months ago

From  the WABI-TV5  & CW Forecast Center:

 

Weak high pressure will produce generally fair and seasonably cool conditions here today, but a gusty west breeze will make it feel a bit colder than it actually is. A new storm will approach New England from the west tonight and then move east through northern New England Saturday. The new storm will bring another burst of snow and mixed precipitation to Maine Saturday, with most locales, likely picking up between 1 and 4″. Colder air will begin to spill back into New England Sunday on a gusty northwest breeze. Arctic high pressure will build south out of central Canada and bring another round of much colder than normal conditions to Maine Monday and Tuesday. A storm developing off the Southeastern U.S. Coastline early next week might bring more snow and wind to parts of New England next Wednesday into Thursday.
