Cloudy and cool weather will continue today with a few showers possible mainly during the first half of the day. Temperatures will only reach the mid-50s to around 60° for highs this afternoon. A disturbance moving through the area Wednesday will give us a cloudy start to the day with a few showers possible especially during the morning hours. Brighter conditions can be expected over the northern half of the state as high pressure noses in from the north. Temperatures will be more seasonable Wednesday with highs in the low to mid-60s. High pressure building into the area will give us some pleasant weather on Thursday and Friday. We could see some wet weather moving into the area for the upcoming weekend. We’ll keep you posted as the week progresses.

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will continue to control the weather in our area today through Sunday. Temps this afternoon and over the weekend will continue to warm across Maine as the large high settles just to our southwest and a westerly breeze pulls unseasonably mild air into the Northeast. High temps today will climb into the 70s across most of Maine, with even warmer conditions likely Saturday as highs reach the mid 70s to low 80s. Once again on Sunday much warmer than normal temps will be found all across the Pine Tree State as highs climb into the 70s to near 80.

Partly to Mostly Sunny & Pleasant This Afternoon

Todd Simcox

Updated 4 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure over the area will provide us with another nice day today. Low pressure moving northward from the Mid-Atlantic is pushing some scattered clouds into southern and coastal parts of Maine while the rest of the state is seeing a lot of sunshine. Despite seeing a few more clouds over southern and coastal areas today, sunshine is still expected to prevail in those spots. Temperatures will reach the upper 60s to low 70s inland and low 60s along the coast (due to an onshore breeze) for highs this afternoon. Skies will remain clear tonight with lows temperatures dropping to the mid-40s to low 50s. We may see some patchy fog tonight so keep that in mind if you plan on to be on the roads later tonight as you may encounter some reduced visibility in spots.

Today will be mostly sunny with highs in the upper 50s and low to mid 60s. It will be cold overnight into tomorrow, with northern spots dropping as low as the mid 20s.

Clouds & Limited Sun, Milder & More Humid Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Today the combination of a trough of low pressure lifting north off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline and a slowly approaching cold front from the west will keep the skies partly to mostly cloudy across our region, with nothing more than some scattered showers expected here during the day. A southerly breeze will continue to pull a milder and more humid airmass into Maine today as high temps climb into the mid 60s to low 70s statewide and dew points reach up into the stickier low to mid 60s.

Clouds & Limited Sun, Breezy & Milder Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The ridge of high pressure that brought the chilly conditions to New England yesterday will settle to the southeast of New England today. As the high settles to the southeast of New England a developing southwest breeze on the backside of the high will usher milder air back into our region. As the southwest breeze continues on Sunday the atmosphere will continue to warm all across New England. A warm front will brings increasing clouds to Maine today and likely produce some scattered showers across New England Sunday. Also on Sunday a trough of low pressure aloft will likely combine with an onshore breeze to bring more scattered showers and patchy drizzle to eastern parts of Maine. High temps today throughout Maine will run in the low to mid 60s, with highs Sunday likely ranging from the mid 60s north to the low 70s south.
