Fair & Chilly Tonight through Wednesday

Chris Ewing

Updated 11 months ago

from the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

As the cold front that brought the scattered rain and snow showers to Maine today sweeps offshore this evening the skies across our region will become mostly clear. High pressure currently centered just west of the Hudson Bay Region will build southeast and control the weather across New England both tomorrow and Wednesday. A northwest breeze on the eastside of the high will usher a chilly airmass into our area beginning later tonight and lasting through Wednesday. Low temps tonight will fall into the 20s all across the state, with even a few a few teens showing up over the deeper valleys well north of the Bangor region. Despite a good deal of sunshine tomorrow high temps in Maine will hold in the upper 30s across the far north to the 40s elsewhere in the state.

Showers Possible Today, Cooler Temps Tuesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 11 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Weak low pressure will pull a cold front through the state this afternoon bringing scattered showers to some parts of the state this afternoon. The bulk of the showers will fall north of Bangor with a lesser chance for showers from Bangor southward to the coast. The airmass will stay cold enough so that areas north of Greenville and Millinocket will see the showers mix with some snow at times. Temperatures will top off in the 40s to around 50° for highs this afternoon. Showers are expected to move out of the state later this afternoon and early this evening. Skies will then clear out as we head into the night tonight. Slightly cooler air will move in behind the front so with skies turning clear tonight and light winds expected, temperatures will be chilly with nighttime lows in the 20s.

Chilly with Some Sunshine to Start the Week

Jessica Conley

Updated 11 months ago

 

Rain and snow showers continue overnight tonight ahead of an approaching cold front. The snow will mostly be confined to the mountains/higher elevations and in far northern Maine. A few lingering showers to start out the day on Sunday are possible. We’ll see seasonable high temperatures for the second half of the weekend with a mix of sun and clouds. Overnight lows drop again by Sunday night as skies stay mostly clear. Again a mix of sun and clouds for Monday with rain and snow showers moving in for the afternoon and evening as another cold front moves through the area. Overnight lows Monday night will be cold with some locations possible experiencing upper teens. We’ll clear out on Tuesday as a high pressure system moves in. Temps stay quite cool though with highs only in the low to mid 40s. It looks like it will continue to stay dry and mostly sunny through the day on Wednesday as the high pressure system holds in place. We’ll start out partly sunny on Thursday too but then the warm front approaches the area and brings afternoon and evening rain showers for Thursday night. It will also bring much more mild temps for Thursday night and into Friday. Friday the cold front associated with the same low pressure system crosses the area and brings more showers. Rain could be steady at times. Highs will be above normal Friday.

Some Sun then Increasing Clouds Later Saturday

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm moving east from southern Ontario into Quebec will pull a cold front through the Northeast Saturday night and early Sunday morning. The front will bring a round of showers to our region Saturday evening through early Sunday morning as it crosses New England. The higher elevations of northwestern Maine may see a few wet snowflakes mix in with the rain showers as temps will likely be just cold enough for that to occur.

Partly Sunny, Breezy & Cool Friday

Chris Ewing

Updated 11 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm centered near Newfoundland brought a gusty northwest breeze to Maine today. The gusty wind helped usher a chilly airmass into the Pine Tree State today and the cool air will remain across our region both tomorrow and Saturday. A dome of high pressure will bring generally fair skies to Maine to go along with the chilly temps tomorrow and the first half of Saturday as high temps hold in the 40s to very low 50s both days all across the state, with low temps running in the mid 20s to lower 30s. A storm moving east from the Great Lakes Region will produce a round of showers in Maine beginning later Saturday evening and continuing into Sunday morning, with a few snowflakes possibly mixed with the rain over northern parts of the state. High pressure building southeast from central Canada will bring more dry and chilly into New England as the workweek begins on Monday. The dry and chilly conditions will continue on Tuesday as high pressure dominates our weather, with a storm possibly bringing some rain and snow to Northern New England later Wednesday or Halloween.

Breezy & Cool Weather Continues, No Big Storms In Sight

Todd Simcox

Updated 11 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure out over the Atlantic will move away from New England today. On the backside of the departing storm, winds will remain gusty with west/southwest winds gusting to 25-30 MPH today. Clouds will continue to increase this afternoon as an upper level disturbance approaches from the north and west. Temperatures will be in the mid-40s to low 50s but feel much cooler with the gusty wind factored in. Skies will be variably cloudy tonight as the upper level disturbance crosses the state.

Breezy & Cool the Next Few Days

Chris Ewing

Updated 11 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm currently developing off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline will track northeast tonight. The storm will likely bring partly to mostly cloudy skies to our region tonight, but the bulk if not all of the storms precipitation should stay well offshore as the low moves east of the Gulf of Maine. Far eastern parts of Maine might see a few light showers later this evening as the storm slides to our east, but any light showers or sprinkles that develop along the coastline will end before daybreak tomorrow.

Cooler Temperatures Are Here, Showers Possible East Today

Jessica Conley

Updated 11 months ago

The cold front has crossed the area and that is leaving us with much cooler temperatures for today. We’ll be about ten degrees cooler than where we were yesterday. We’ll see a somewhat unsettled pattern for the remainder of the week and into the weekend as well. There is currently a low to our southeast which will bring a few showers possible along the coast this evening. Other than that it looks like partly to mostly sunny skies today. By tomorrow, an approaching trough will bring us some clouds with the chance for some mountain flurries.  It’ll bring us a mix of sun and clouds for Friday. By Saturday, things try to clear out partially as a high pressure tries to ridge into the area. Then a second approaching low moves in for Saturday afternoon and evening. It looks like some snow showers are possible Saturday night into Sunday, especially in higher elevations and in far northern Maine where temps will stay slightly cooler. The low will keep us cloudy for Sunday.

Mostly Sunny & Pleasant Start to the Weekend

Chris Ewing

Updated 12 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.
