Mostly Sunny & Pleasant Start to the Weekend

Chris Ewing

Updated 11 months ago

From the WABI-TV5  & CW Forecast Center:

 

High pressure moving east across the Mid-Atlantic States will bring mostly to partly sunny skies to Maine Saturday, with temps still running a few degrees above normal. Later in the day clouds will begin to increase across our region as the high slides east and a cold front over the Eastern Great Lakes Region heads in our direction. Clouds will thicken Saturday evening and scattered showers will develop later at night as the cold front continues to move towards Maine. More showers will fall early Sunday morning as the cold front slides east across the Pine Tree State. As the cold front moves offshore drier air will build into New England on a brisk west wind and skies will become partly to mostly sunny by later in the day. Temps will begin to turn a bit cooler behind the cold front for later Sunday and Monday.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

The last of the showers are exiting the northeast part of Aroostook county early this afternoon while the rest of the state is drying out. Drier air moving in behind the departing storm will make for brightening skies from west to east across the state from throughout the afternoon. Temperatures will be above average again today but not quite as mild as yesterday with highs in the mid-50s to mid-60s from north to south this afternoon. Skies be clear to partly cloudy tonight with lows in the 40s.

Early Showers then Partly Sunny Friday

Chris Ewing

Updated 11 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The cold front that is currently moving through Maine will become stationary just to our east this evening. Energy aloft moving east through the Ohio River Valley has caused a new storm to develop over the southern Mid-Atlantic Region. This new storm will move northeast tonight along the stalled front and bring rain back to our area late tonight and tomorrow morning. The rain will taper off from southwest to northeast during the morning and early afternoon hours tomorrow as the storm lifts off to our northeast into Nova Scotia. A bit of afternoon sun tomorrow will allow temps to once again warm to above normal levels.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

The cold front that brought us some showers this morning will move to our east this afternoon. Any lingering showers over eastern parts of the state will end early this afternoon with the trend towards brightening skies as the afternoon wears on. Temperatures will be milder this afternoon with highs in the 60s to near 70°. The front will stall just offshore and a new storm to our south will ride northward along the stalled front, approaching New England tonight. We’ll start the night dry with clear to partly cloudy skies followed by increasing clouds as the storm approaches. As the storm nears, rain will move into the state after midnight.

A weakening cold front will bring clouds and a few scattered showers to Maine tonight and early tomorrow as it slips through New England. As the cold front moves off to our east later tomorrow a weak bubble of high pressure will bring slightly drier air to our region tomorrow afternoon and that will allow partly sunny skies to develop across our region. Temps tomorrow will once again run above normal as highs reach well up into the 60s all across Maine.

Scattered Showers Possible This Afternoon & Evening, Brightening Skies Thursday

Todd Simcox

Updated 11 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

We have some unsettled weather to contend with in our forecast for the next couple of days. We’ll start out dry this morning with variably cloudy skies. Clouds are expected to prevail today but some breaks of sun cannot be ruled out. A weak disturbance over the Atlantic will move northward towards Nova Scotia and will bring some showers into the state this afternoon. Although everyone will have the chance for showers, the highest chances will be over Downeast locations. With more clouds in place today, temperatures will be a bit cooler than yesterday with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. A cold front approaching from the north and west will keep our shower chances going during the night tonight especially for northern and western parts of the state. Low temperatures will be right around 50° for the nighttime hours.

Limited Sun, Few Showers & Mild Wednesday

Chris Ewing

Updated 11 months ago

From the WABI-TV & CW Forecast Center:

 

A small bubble of high pressure centered just to the north of Maine brought partly sunny skies and mild temps to our region today. As the high over southern Quebec moves east tonight and early tomorrow a trough of low pressure will begin to approach our region. The upper level trough will keep skies partly to mostly cloudy Wednesday and a few showers could develop here later in the day as moisture slides north into Eastern New England from just off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline. A storm passing east just to the north of New England Thursday will pull a cold front through our region. The front will bring a few periods of showers to Maine later tomorrow night and a portion of Thursday.

Partly Sunny Today, Few Showers Tomorrow Afternoon

Jessica Conley

Updated 11 months ago

Today things will start out partly sunny out as a high pressure system moves into the area. We will see some lingering clouds though. Wednesday will start with a mix of sun and clouds as a low pressure system approaches the region. A cold front, associated with the low, will bring rainy condition for Wednesday night into the day on Thursday. Showers will wrap up by Thursday evening as the low exits the region. Another weak low is headed our way for Friday. That will bring more showers to the area starting late Friday morning and lasting into Friday evening. By Saturday, a high pressure ridge brings us mostly sunny skies.

The fair and pleasant weather pattern across Maine shows little signs of breaking down over the next several days. High pressure both at the surface and aloft will remain located over New England the next several days and that will keep the storm currently bringing wind and rain to much of the Mid-Atlantic well south of our region.

Warm Today, Cooler Weekend but Sunny

Jessica Conley

Updated 11 months ago

A weak backdoor cold front will cross the state today bringing some clouds to the area this evening. Besides that, we’ll have mostly sunny skies with high pressure still in the region. Temperatures today will be mild and quite warm (about 10 degrees above normal) ahead of the front, but as it crosses the state from northeast to southwest temps will cool off. Tomorrow, the high pressure system to our north will keep us mostly sunny for the day. A few morning clouds are possible though as the cold front exits the area. Temperatures will be right around normal highs. By Sunday it’s all sunshine for us. Temperatures around normal are expected again. Monday will start out with sun then have increasing clouds as a weak cold front approaches from the west. By Monday night a couple isolated showers are possible, but it looks like most of us will just see clouds. Tuesday will become mostly sunny again.

High pressure centered over Northern New England will bring generally fair skies to our region tonight and Friday. The high will once again keep the storm currently located off the North Carolina Coastline stalled to our south the next several days. The airmass over Maine will continue to warm tomorrow and that will allow the temps here to run well above normal as highs reach the mid 60s to low 70s throughout most of our region.
