From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Today’s forecast will be a carbon copy of Monday’s forecast. An upper level disturbance is forecast to cross the state today combined with moisture wrapping around low pressure over the Maritimes. As the disturbance moves through, we’ll see the chance for some widely scattered showers this afternoon and evening. Temperatures will again be seasonable with highs in the 50s to near 60°. Any lingering showers will wind down this evening followed by clearing skies tonight. Nighttime temperatures will drop to the 30s for lows.

Variably Cloudy & Scattered Showers Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 6 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

An upper level area of low pressure drifting east through the Gulf of Maine and its associated pool of cool air aloft kept conditions a bit unstable across New England yesterday as brief hit and miss showers kept popping up across our region. The upper low and the pool of chilly air aloft will bring one more unstable day weather-wise to Maine today as pop-up showers develop with the heating of the sun. Temps today will run a few degrees below normal for early May as highs hold in the 50s to low 60s throughout the Pine Tree State.

Clouds, Few Showers Today & Tuesday, Brighter & Milder Wednesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 6 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure at the surface and in the upper levels of the atmosphere will spin towards Newfoundland today. Moisture wrapping around the storm will keep plenty of clouds over the area today along with a few scattered showers. The best chance for showers today will be over areas north of Bangor with drier conditions elsewhere. Areas closer to the coast and towards southern Maine could see some breaks in the clouds thanks to northwesterly winds helping to dry things out a bit. Temperatures will be seasonable today with highs in the 50s to near 60°. Showers will wind down this evening and looks like we’ll see mainly dry conditions for the night tonight with mostly cloudy skies and lows in the mid-30s to around 40°.

Mostly Cloudy Today, Partly Cloudy Tuesday, Warmer Wednesday

Jessica Conley

Updated 6 months ago

We’ll see a few showers sticking around for the day today but it looks like most of those will fall over northern areas. Highs warm up a bit more today. In fact, the trend for the next four days will be for temps to warm up slightly each day and for us to see a bit less in the way of clouds each day too.

Temperatures Improve and Skies Clear This Week

Jessica Conley

It’ll stay rainy for today as a low pressure system moves into the region. Temps won’t be able to warm up much today either with highs only reaching into the low to mid 50s. We’ll see a few of those scattered showers sticking around for the day on Monday, but it looks like we’ll see some peeks of sunshine too. Highs warm up a bit more Monday. In fact, the trend for the next five days will be for temps to warm up slightly each day and for us to see a bit less in the way of clouds each day.

An upper level disturbance is forecast to swing eastward through New England this afternoon.

Some Sun, Few Showers & Milder Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 6 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Skies across Maine today will be partly to mostly cloudy as some energy in the upper levels of the atmosphere crosses New England. The upper level energy will cause some scattered showers to develop across Maine today with the bulk of the showers occurring this afternoon. A west to southwest breeze today will bring a milder airmass into our region and high temps should range from the upper 50s north to the low to mid 60s south.

Rainy & Cool Today, Scattered Showers & Milder Friday

Todd Simcox

Updated 6 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

The cloudy, wet weather will continue this afternoon. The heaviest rain is moving east into New Brunswick so look for the steadier/heavier rain to taper to scattered showers in most locales by mid-afternoon. Temperatures will be cool this afternoon with highs only reaching the mid-40s to low 50s for highs.  Drier air moving into the state during the night tonight should allow for at least partial clearing. A few showers will still be possible for the nighttime hours and we’ll likely see some patchy fog developing too.

Periods of Rain Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 6 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW  Forecast Center:

Low pressure will bring periods of rain to Maine through much of today. An onshore breeze along with the rainfall will keep temps running below normal today and that will preclude our region from seeing any strong or severe storms. Rainfall by later today will generally range between .50″ and 1.25″.

High pressure will continue to control our weather today as it slowly drifts southeast into the Gulf of Maine. Once again temps will be coolest along the shoreline today due to an onshore breeze. Temps this afternoon will range from the mid to upper 40s along the Maine coastline to the 50s inland, with the mildest readings being found up north due to skies remaining mostly clear the longest.

Strong high pressure over Quebec will move towards northern New Brunswick today, keeping an active north to northeast breeze blowing across the Pine Tree State.

Cloudy & Cool This Afternoon, Sun Returns Tuesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 6 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure centered south of Nova Scotia will continue to slowly pull away from the region today. Moisture wrapping around the departing storm will keep us under the clouds with a few widely scattered showers for the remainder of the daylight hours. Northerly winds will remain breezy today with low pressure to our east and high pressure building in from the north and west. With the clouds, showers and northerly wind in our forecast today, temperatures will remain a bit below average this afternoon with highs in the mid-40s to mid-50s. High pressure will build into the area beginning tonight and help to gradually clear us out during the nighttime hours.

A Couple Showers Tonight & Tomorrow, Sunny Tuesday

Jessica Conley

Updated 6 months ago

 

That (s)low (a slow moving low… get it?) we talked about yesterday is still really taking its time. It’s allowing some showers to be thrown back into the area today. At 3pm Augusta was even seeing heavy rain. We will have the chance for a few isolated showers tonight, and could again see some wet flakes mixing in, especially in the mountains and higher elevations. We’ll see the chance for a few into the morning tomorrow too. Tomorrow will become pretty breezy as a ridge of high pressure nudges itself into the region from Canada. It’ll make us breezy tomorrow but bright by Tuesday. It’ll stay mostly sunny when you wake up Wednesday. Another low moves into the area for Thursday. That’ll bring us some fairly steady rain for the day. Things start to clear out by Friday.

A slow moving low pressure system will continue to move, ever so slowly, away from the region. We’ll see the light precipitation changing over to all rain Sunday as highs warm into the upper 40s and low 50s. Things will taper off as we head into this evening. It’ll become a bit breezy today too, with winds from the north at 10 – 15 mph.

Rain Showers Or Even A Few Flakes Tonight & Tomorrow

Jessica Conley

Updated 6 months ago

Well, by now you probably know my favorite phrase of the winter, “I’m just the messenger!!!” (It also helps to say it with a smile!) I’ll be using that one again tonight as we have the possibility for a few wet snowflakes and even up to an inch of accumulation in Northern Maine. Temps will fall to the 32 to 38 degree range. And while I bet you’re thinking, well as long as we’re above 32 we should be good. Almost. Those are the surface temperatures, and while it’s quite helpful to have them above 32 degrees to avoid snow, if temps just above the surface are colder, we could still see some wet snowflakes. As you may have guessed, this is exactly the setup for tonight. Ugh! I know, I know; it’s almost May!
