Humid & Showery Early This Week

Jessica Conley

Updated 1 week ago

We’ll see some showers and the possibility for a couple of thunderstorms early this morning as a trough of low pressure moves through the area. Morning showers will give way to clearing skies for the afternoon and evening. Highs inland will be in the low 80s while high along the coast will make it into the mid 70s. Tuesday will start out dry, but as a cold front approaches we’ll see increasing clouds and then showers developing Tuesday night. Wednesday looks rainy for most of the day. By Thursday things will clear out as an area of high pressure moves in. Its looks nice Friday too. The weekend is also looking fantastic as of right now, with plenty of sunshine in the (early) forecast.

Showers Move in Late Sunday and Stick Around for Most of the Week

Tonight won’t be quite as cool with lows in the mid to upper 50s. Tomorrow is when the humidity returns and some showers move in late in the day. Monday and Tuesday look quite showery too as a cold front moves through the region. Models are still not agreeing on the timing of the frontal passage for Wednesday or Thursday. I’m thinking we’ll see some showers still lingering for Wednesday but will clear out as we head into Thursday.

Abundant Sunshine Today & Saturday, Humidity Returns Sunday

Todd Simcox

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will dominate our forecast for the next couple of days. There are some scattered high thin clouds from Bangor south to the coastline filtering the sunshine this morning. These clouds are associated with a stalled out front located south and east of New England. The front will continue to slowly drift southward away from New England which in turn will take the clouds with it this morning and allow sunshine to prevail. We’ll see lots of sunshine across the state today with highs in the mid-70s to low 80s this afternoon. Skies will be clear tonight with lows dropping to the mid-40s to mid-50s from north to south across the state.

Nice Friday & Saturday, Showers Return Sunday PM

It looks like another nice and sunny day for our Friday as high pressure moves in and sticks with us through tomorrow. Highs both days will be at or slightly above seasonable levels with the coolest temperatures along the coast. Sunday is when the humidity returns and some showers move in late in the day. Monday and Tuesday look quite showery, with a steady rain moving in Tuesday night as a low approaches the region.
An interesting note from the National Weather Service in Caribou: This is the wettest start to July since records began being kept. Not surprising considering the amount of rain we saw from Arthur. We’ve actually already reached and surpassed our average monthly rainfall total in Bangor. Our average for July is 3.46″. We are currently at 3.70″.

Sunny & Turning Less Humid Today, Beautiful Friday & Saturday

Todd Simcox

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure centered over the Great Lakes will gradually slide towards New England over the next few days giving us a great stretch of weather for the remainder of the week into the weekend. A less humid airmass will move in during the day today as well so we’ll have a much more comfortable feel to the air as the day progresses. We’ll see mostly sunny skies this afternoon with temperatures ranging from the mid-70s to low 80s from north to south across the state. Skies will be clear tonight and with light winds, plan on a cool night. Nighttime lows will range from the mid to upper 40s north to the low to mid-50s elsewhere.

Partly Sunny & Humid With Widely Scattered T’storms Later Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Warm and humid conditions will continue this afternoon with highs topping off a couple degrees either side of 80°. A cold front approaching from the west will give us the chance for a few showers and thunderstorms later this afternoon and into the evening hours. The cold front will cross the state early tonight so we’ll continue the chance for some showers and thunderstorms into the early nighttime hours ending by midnight or so. Skies will begin to clear out behind the front after midnight and humidity levels will continue to drop as well.

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

An approaching cold front and a disturbance aloft moving northward into southern Canada just to the west of New England will combine to bring scattered showers and thundershowers to parts of Maine tonight. A few of the hit and miss storms tonight might be on the strong side and contain a gusty breeze along with a heavy downpour, with the most numerous storms being found across northern and western parts of our region. Low temps tonight will hold in the 60s and patchy fog will develop, especially along the coastline.

Rainy & Windy Early, Arthur Moves Northeast

Jessica Conley

Updated 3 weeks ago

 

Arthur will be moving northeast into the Eastern Gulf of Maine and by latemorning today,  It will be located either over the Bay of Fundy or western Nova Scotia. Moisture associated with the hurricane will bring periods of heavy rain to especially eastern parts of Maine this morning as the hurricane continues to ride north just to the east of New England Coastline. The exact track of the storm will determine how much rain and wind Maine sees from the hurricane, with much of the state likely picking up 1 to 4” of rain by the time the rain tapers off later today, with the heaviest rain falling over easternmost parts of the state. The expected current track of the storm would keep the very strong near hurricane force winds well offshore as the storm lifts up to our east, but the wind along the coastline could still gust to near 50mph, with inland locals seeing gusts as high as 40mph. The track of the storm will bring large swells and very dangerous rip currents to our coastline today, so it is best to stay out of the ocean. Once again the expected heavy rain could lead to localized flash flooding especially over eastern parts of the state as we begin the weekend.

Rain & Wind to Start Your Weekend

Chris Ewing

Updated 3 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The cold front that has produced the scattered showers and thundershowers all across New England the past couple of days will continue to slowly push east off the Maine coastline early Saturday. With the front now offshore the wind has kicked around into the north and northwest which is allowing a less humid airmass to begin to filter into our region. While at the same time the front is pushing offshore Hurricane Arthur continues moving northeast into the Eastern Gulf of Maine and by midmorning Saturday it will be located either over the Bay of Fundy or western Nova Scotia. Moisture associated with the remains of Hurricane Arthur will bring periods of heavy rain to especially eastern parts of Maine through Saturday morning as the hurricane continues to ride north just to the east of New England Coastline. The exact track of the storm will determine how much rain and wind Maine sees from the hurricane, with much of the state likely picking up 1 to 5” of rain by the time the rain tapers off later Saturday, with the heaviest rain falling over easternmost parts of the state. The expected current track of the storm would keep the very strong near hurricane force winds well offshore as the storm lifts up to our east, but the wind along the coastline could still gust to near 50mph, with inland locals seeing gusts as high as 40mph. The track of the storm will bring large swells and very dangerous rip currents to our coastline Saturday, so it is best to stay out of the ocean.
