Skies will be clear tonight with lows dropping to the 50s for most locales with some mid to upper 40s possible in the usually colder spots across northern and western parts of the state.

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

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 2 weeks 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.

Chris Ewing

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm in the upper levels of the atmosphere will slowly drift east across southeastern Ontario and Quebec today and Saturday. The upper level low and its associated pool of cool air aloft will keep the atmosphere over northern New England rather unstable right through the weekend. Skies will range from mostly to partly cloudy today, Saturday and Sunday, with scattered showers developing each day. The bulk of the showers the next three days will likely fall across the northern parts of Maine as those locales will be closer to the upper low crossing southern Quebec. Temps will run below normal right on through the weekend as highs only reach the mid 60s to mid 70s.

Showers will be steadiest/most numerous for areas north and east of Bangor this afternoon while areas from Bangor south and west only see a few widely scattered showers for the remainder of the day. Drier air moving into the mid-levels of the atmosphere today will allow for some sunny breaks to develop over areas south and west of Bangor as well.

Rain Tapering to Showers Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 2 weeks 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 2 weeks 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 steadiest and heaviest rain in Maine will fall as the surface storm slides northeast along the New England Coastline later this evening through Thursday morning with many towns likely receiving between 1 and 2″, with a few spots possible seeing as much as 3″. 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.

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

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. As skies become mostly clear tonight the temps across our region will fall into the low to mid 50s and a bit of patchy fog will likely form after midnight.

Sunny Sunday, A Few Showers Late Monday

Chris Ewing

Updated 3 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A building ridge of high pressure approaching the Northeast will bring mostly to partly sunny skies to all of New England Sunday. There still may be enough instability in the upper atmosphere this weekend to kick off an isolated shower or storm today, with the best chance of seeing the storms being found over far eastern parts of Maine. High temps Saturday will likely range from the mid 70s to lower 80s, with highs on Sunday reaching the upper 70s to mid 80s in our region. The ridge of high pressure will continue to bring fair skies and warm temperatures to Maine on Monday as it slowly moves off to our southeast. An approaching storm both at the surface and aloft will likely bring an increased risk of showers and storms to Maine Tuesday night and Wednesday. The combination of clouds, showers and an onshore breeze will likely hold temps in the 60s to low 70s on Wednesday and Thursday.
