A strong cold front will move to our east this afternoon, bringing the shower activity to an end early this afternoon. Drier air moving into the region behind the front will allow us to dry things out and see some brightening of the sky this afternoon. Colder air will begin moving back into the region tonight under clear to partly cloudy skies. Nighttime lows will drop to the upper 20s to low 30s for the overnight hours.

Monday’s highs will be even more comfortable, making it close to 60 degrees in most spots, but we will see rain for much of the day. Showers will start out early and turn to a steady rain by late morning. The rain could be heavy at times as the cold front crosses the area. Much colder air will be behind the front and that will keep Tuesday’s highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Skies clear out by Tuesday morning as a high builds into the area behind the front. It’ll keep us sunny to mostly sunny through the day on Friday. Highs will stay around normal in the upper 30s and low to mid 40s each day.

The combination of strong ridge of high pressure to our west and a storm near Newfoundland produced a brisk and cold northwesterly wind all across Maine today. The northwest wind helped pull a modified arctic airmass south through New England today and this pattern will continue tonight and tomorrow. Low temps tonight will fall into the teens to very low 20s, with high temps tomorrow ranging from the mid to upper 20s north to mid 30s south.

Breezy & Cold Today and Wednesday, Milder End To Week

Todd Simcox

Updated 12 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A cold front moved through the state overnight and early this morning and will continue to push away from the region today. Colder air will move in behind the departing cold front with temperatures averaging around 10° colder than what we had yesterday. Skies will be a mix of sun and clouds with temperatures in the upper 20s to mid-30s for highs. It’ll feel even colder than that though with the west/northwest breeze factored in. West/northwest winds could gust to 25 MPH at times today which will give us wind chill factors in the teens and 20s throughout the day. We could see some flurries or snow showers up north as well, with an upper level disturbance forecast to cross the state later today. We’re in for a cold night tonight with clear to partly cloudy skies and lows dropping to the mid-teens to around 20°.

A storm currently moving east from the Hudson Bay region will pull a sharp cold front across Maine later tonight.

Sun & Clouds Monday, Cold by Tuesday

Jessica Conley

Updated 12 months ago

 

Tomorrow, high pressure tries to move in from the south, so we will see a mix of sun and clouds for the day. By Monday evening, a low pressure system approaches from the west. This will bring a cold front though the area that will bring a few isolated snow showers overnight. Not expecting any accumulation. Much colder temperatures behind the front. Highs Tuesday will struggle to hit 40, I don’t think we’ll make it there on Wednesday. By Wednesday things really quiet down as a high pressure system moves in. It’ll keep things mostly sunny for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. High temperatures moderate as well by Thursday.

A Mix for Sunday, Becoming Colder by Tuesday

Jessica Conley

Updated 12 months ago

 

Sunday looks cloudy for the entire day with a mix of rain and snow showers or all rain showers. As far as accumulations go, Caribou might pick up a few inches; in our viewing area Houlton would be the best chance to see maybe an inch or two.  By Monday, high pressure tries to move in from the south, so we will see a mix of sun and clouds for the day. By Monday evening, a low pressure system approaches from the west. This will bring a cold front though the area that will bring everyone some snow showers overnight. Not expecting much in the way of accumulation. Much colder temperatures behind the front. Highs Tuesday will struggle to hit 40, I don’t think we’ll make it there on Wednesday. Another shot at a few snow showers too on Tuesday afternoon. By Wednesday things really quiet down as a high pressure system moves in. It’ll keep things mostly sunny for Wednesday and Thursday.

Variably Cloudy & Colder Today, Sunshine Prevails Saturday

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

An upper level disturbance is forecast to cross New England today and will produce some cloudiness for us with the thicker cloud cover over northern areas and slightly brighter conditions expected elsewhere. There are some rain and snow showers showing up on radar as of noon time so a sprinkle or snow shower can’t be ruled out this afternoon for some spots.  Temperatures will be noticeably colder today with highs expected to top off in the upper 30s to mid-40s this afternoon but feel colder at times due to a gusty west/northwesterly breeze. Clouds will be on the decrease tonight with lows dropping to the 20s for the overnight hours.
