Bright, Warm & Becoming Humid Tuesday

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 week ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The ridge of high pressure that brought the mostly sunny and mild conditions to Maine today will continue to control the weather across New England tomorrow. As the high slowly settles southeast of our region a south to southwesterly breeze will develop across Maine tomorrow and continue on Wednesday. The southwest breeze will pull an increasingly warm and more humid airmass up into our area over the next couple of days. The high will keep the skies across Maine mostly sunny tomorrow, with high temps climbing well up into the 80s over interior Maine, with slightly cooler temps being found along the coastline.

Sun For Today & Tomorrow, Rain Comes Wednesday Afternoon

Jessica Conley

Updated 2 weeks ago

For the day today we’ll see a bit more sun than yesterday with highs in the low 70s at the coast and in the upper 70s and low 80s inland. The high creates southerly flow at the coast so air coming off the water will help to keep temps there about 10° cooler than just slightly inland locations. By tomorrow a new area of high pressure will develop to our south and should be enough to keep us partly to mostly sunny for the day. Highs will be a bit warmer, in the mid 70s at the coast and in the mid 80s inland. It’ll become more humid tomorrow too.

Some Sun to Start the Week, Rain Moves In Mid Week

Jessica Conley

Updated 2 weeks ago

 

Tonight temps fall into the low to mid 50s with cloudy skies starting to clear out overnight. There may be a sprinkle or two around early that was strong enough to fight through the area of high pressure. For the day tomorrow we’ll see a bit more sun than today with highs in the low 70s at the coast and in the low 80s inland. The high creates southerly flow at the coast so air coming off the water will help to keep temps there about 10° cooler than just slightly inland locations.

Highs will be a bit warmer, in the mid 70s at the coast and in the mid 80s inland.

Sunshine Sticks Around for a While

Jessica Conley

Updated 2 weeks ago

We’ll see mainly clear skies with a bit of haze out there for the rest of the evening and through the overnight hours. We are seeing some smoke being filtered into our region from wildfires in Canada (hence the hazy forecast). By tomorrow, we’ll have partly to mostly sunny skies with highs inland making it into the upper 70s and low 80s and highs at the coast in the low 70s. The high pressure system that kept us with sunshine today will be moving offshore and to the north and east. Monday will be very similar to Sunday with a mix of sun and clouds from the ridge of high pressure that’ll extend into our area from the high that’s well off to our north and east.

Bright, Pleasant & Warm Saturday

Chris Ewing

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The ridge of high pressure that brought the bright and pleasant weather to Maine Friday will continue to produce pleasant conditions across our region today. Plan on mostly sunny skies and warm temps as the high slowly slides east across New England today. High temps Today will range from the upper 70s at the coastline to the low to mid 80s inland. The high will slip off to our east Sunday, while at the same time energy in the upper atmosphere causes a small storm to develop off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline. The small storm will slowly move northeast later Sunday through Monday. At this point in time it appears the small storm will stay just far enough offshore to keep its rain shield offshore. If the storm comes a little closer to New England than is currently projected we will see more clouds and possibly a few scattered showers over eastern parts of Maine later Sunday into early Monday, but that scenario seem unlikely at this point in time.

Brighter & Drier Today, Nice Stretch Ahead

Todd Simcox

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Drier and brighter weather on tap for today.  The cold front that brought us all the rain yesterday continues to move away from the region and skies will continue to brighten from west to east across the state this afternoon. High temperatures will reach the mid-70s to low 80s this afternoon. We may see a few isolated showers popping up this afternoon as an upper level disturbance approaches from the north and west however the chances look very minimal so most locales will likely stay dry. Less humid air will gradually move in during the day as well making for a more comfortable feel to the air by later in the day. Skies be clear to partly cloudy tonight and we’ll have much better sleeping weather in place as the less humid, more comfortable continues to move in. Temperatures will drop back to the low to mid-50s for nighttime lows.

Showers Ending Tonight, Brighter & Less Humid Thursday

Chris Ewing

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Drier and less humid air will continue to filter into the Northeast tomorrow which will cause the skies to turn partly sunny as the day moves along. High pressure will approach the Northeast Friday and then build right on top of New England over the weekend. The high will produce partly to mostly sunny skies all across Maine Friday and mostly sunny skies both weekend days throughout New England. High temps across Maine Friday will range from the mid 70s to low 80s, with temps warming slowly over the weekend as highs reach the upper 70s to mid 80s Saturday, with highs Sunday reaching the 80s statewide.

Rain & T’storms Today, Drier Weather Coming Thursday

Todd Simcox

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure is forecast to pass to our west/northwest today slowly pushing a cold front across the state. This cold front will bring us periods of rain and scattered thunderstorms on its way through with the potential for some of the rain to fall very heavily at times. With the threat of heavy downpours still in the forecast, the National Weather Service continues the Flash Flood Watch for the entire state through tonight. Areas that do see the heavy downpours could pick up a quick 1-2” maybe 2.5” of rain in a short amount of time resulting in flash flooding especially in poor drainage areas. With plenty of clouds and rain in the forecast today, temperatures will be a bit cooler with highs mainly in the low to mid-70s this afternoon. The rain will taper to scattered showers from west to east during the night tonight with some partial clearing late as the cold front moves to our east.

Showers & T’Storms Through Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm system both at the surface and aloft moving northeast from the Great Lakes Region into southern Ontario will keep New England humid and wet today. A southerly wind will continue to pull a very tropical airmass up the Eastern Seaboard today causing periodic showers and thunderstorms to continue throughout our region right into tonight. A slowly moving cold front associated with the storm to our west will enhance the rain showers across Maine today and that could lead to localized flash flooding in any of the heavier downpours. Total rainfall will generally range from 1 to 3″ across our area by the time the front exits the coastline later tonight which will bring an end to the heavier showers. A few spots may pick-up over 3″ if a heavier shower sits on top of the region for a few hours.

A storm system both at the surface and aloft moving northeast from the Great Lakes Region into southern Ontario will keep New England humid and wet tonight, tomorrow and tomorrow night. A southerly wind will continue to pull a very tropical airmass up the Eastern Seaboard tonight and tomorrow and that will cause periodic showers and thundershowers to continue throughout our region right into tomorrow night. A slowly moving cold front associated with the storm to our west will enhance the rain showers across Maine tomorrow and that could lead to localized flash flooding in any of the heavier downpours. Total rainfall will generally range from 1 to 3” across our area by the time the front exits the coastline later tomorrow night which will bring an end to the heavier showers.

Showers & Humid Today, Wet Wednesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure over the eastern Great Lakes will continue slowly drift eastward towards New England today, drawing moisture northward into the region giving us the chance for some scattered showers and a few thunderstorms today especially later this afternoon and evening. There will be lots of moisture available in the atmosphere so any showers and thunderstorms could have very heavy downpours. Areas that do see the heavy downpours could pick up a quick 1″-2” maybe 2.5” of rain in a short amount of time resulting in flash flooding especially in poor drainage areas.  With more clouds and some scattered showers in the forecast, temperatures will be cooler with highs in the 70s to near 80° this afternoon, coolest along the coast with an onshore wind. Showers will continue through the night tonight along with the chance for a few thunderstorms as a cold front approaches the region. It will be a warm and humid night with low temperatures staying in the 60s to near 70°.

Humid & Showery Early This Week

Jessica Conley

Updated 3 weeks 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

Jessica Conley

Updated 3 weeks ago

 

 

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.
