Partly Sunny, Breezy & Cold Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

Cold high pressure will slide towards the Northeast today and Saturday with high temps running several degrees below normal both days despite partly sunny skies. High temps will range from the mid 20s to low 30s today and only a degree or two milder for Saturday. Temps will turn milder Sunday as the high drifts off to our southeast and a southwest breeze develops all across New England. A little light mixed precipitation may develop later Saturday night and early Sunday as the milder air begins to slide up into our region, with the best chance of seeing any light mixed precipitation or rain being found over northern parts of Maine. A storm will likely bring rain to Maine Monday into very early Tuesday as it tracks north well up to the west of New England. A weakening cold front will sweep the rain showers out to sea later Tuesday, with temps slowly falling back to more seasonable levels by Wednesday.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

 

Low pressure is forecast to pass to our north during the day today, pushing a cold front through the state this afternoon. We’ll see a few scattered snow showers as the cold front moves through especially over northern areas otherwise expect a mix of sun and clouds for the remainder of the day. Temperatures will top off in the 30s to low 40s for highs this afternoon. An upper level disturbance will cross the state tonight with some clouds and a few snow showers possible. Colder air will filter into the region during the night with lows dropping back to the teens to near 20°.

Few Snow Showers Today then Cold & Dry Friday

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

An upper level disturbance will pass through the area today bringing some clouds and scattered snow showers to our region. Most of Maine will see little if any accumulation of snow from this clipper system, but over Downeast parts of the state moisture working into the region from the ocean may allow a coating to an inch or so in spots. High temps today will range from the low 30s north to the low 40s south. As the trough moves by to our north late today, an arctic cold front will sweep offshore and a fresh batch of unseasonably cold air will ride back into the Northeast on a brisk northwest breeze.

A ridge of high pressure will build into the area today bringing us partly to mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will be a bit colder overall today with highs only reaching the mid-20s to low 30s. Winds will remain breezy today as well with average wind speeds between 10-18 MPH and gusts to 20-25 MPH possible so wind chills will again be in the upper teens to mid-20s at times. Clouds will be on the increase tonight and we may see a few snow showers developing after midnight as low pressure approaches from the Great Lakes. Temperatures will drop back to the mid-teens to mid-20s for lows from north to south across the state.

Messy Mix Today, Drier, Breezy & Chilly Tuesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 month ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure is forecast to track to our north while another area of low pressure is forecast to develop near southern New England. This storm system will bring us a mixed bag of precipitation for today. Most areas, especially away from the coast, will see precipitation starting out as snow and or some mix this morning while areas closer to the coast start out as some mixed precipitation and even rain. As the day progresses, warmer air will move inland and we’ll see snow and mix changing to mix and rain from south to north across the state by late morning through the afternoon. There will be some snow accumulation before the transition to mix and rain takes place. Areas south of a line from Rumford to Dover-Foxcroft to Lincoln will see less than 1” of snowfall before changing to all rain. Areas along and north of that line will see 1”-3” of snow before changing to mix and rain this afternoon. Areas over far northern Somerset, northern Piscataquis and northwest Aroostook counties could see slightly higher snowfall totals of 2”-4” as the colder air will hang on longer over this area before any mixing occurs. Temperatures will range from the mid-30s to mid-40s from north to south this afternoon. Mix and rain will taper off early tonight followed by cloudy and drier conditions for the remainder of the night. Temperatures will drop to the upper 20 to mid-30s for nighttime lows.

Messy Today, Colder Temps for Tuesday

Jessica Conley

Updated 1 month ago

Low pressure will move into the area today bringing some snow showers to start the day, just in time for the morning commute. The snow showers change to a mix then to rain across most of the state as we head into the afternoon hours. The low looks like it’ll track far enough to the west of us and pull in enough warm air to change many of the mountains and northern areas of the state to rain/mix as well. It’s looking like everyone else will be changing over to rain completely by the end of the day today. Highs will at least be more seasonable or even slightly above seasonable levels, with most of us in the 40s. We could see a few snow showers on Tuesday morning as the backside of the low pulls in air from Canada. Things become partly sunny though by Tuesday afternoon as the low exits the region. Highs Tuesday will stay in the 30s.
Partly to mostly sunny skies on Wednesday with highs mainly in the 30s will be followed by partly cloudy skies Thursday. Highs Thursday will be a few degrees warmer than Wednesday and make it into the upper 30s and low 40s. Friday we could see a few snow showers develop. Highs will only make it into the low to mid 30s.

We’ll see mainly clear skies tonight with fairly calm winds which will allow temperatures to really drop – we’re talking teens and some lows 20s. After a chilly start to Sunday we’ll have high temperatures that become more comfortable but still stay below seasonable levels. Some morning sun will be followed by more afternoon clouds and a few areas of snow showers developing overnight.

Bright & Unseasonably Chilly Saturday

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The combination of high pressure approaching New England from the west and a storm system located well to our northeast will bring fair but chilly weather to Maine both weekend days. Despite more sun than clouds high temps on Saturday will run in the upper 20s north to 30s south, with a light to moderate northwest breeze making it feel even a bit colder. Temps throughout Maine Sunday will run slightly milder than Saturday as highs reach up into the low 30s north to near 40 south. The weather will generally be dry all weekend with maybe a few flurries or snow showers falling over the mountains Sunday as an upper level trough crosses the Pine Tree State.

Skies Gradually Brightening This Afternoon

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 month ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

As of noontime, snow continued to fall over part of Hancock county east into central and coastal Washington county. The lingering snow will continue to wind down as low pressure passes to our south and east. Drier air moving into the state behind the departing storm will allow skies to gradually brighten as the afternoon progresses.  Temperatures will be chilly today with highs in the mid-30s to around 40° this afternoon. Skies will be clear tonight and with colder air moving in on a northwest wind, temperatures will drop to the mid-teens to low 20s for overnight lows.

Snow & Mix Ending This Morning

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Areas of light snow and mixed precipitation will taper off this morning as low pressure slides to our south and east. Skies will brighten up from west to east across the state from late morning through the afternoon as drier air moves into the region. By the time the snow tapers off this morning, accumulations will range from about 2″ or less from the Lincoln, Dover-Foxcroft and Skowhegan regions on west and north. From the Augusta area to just north and west of the Bangor Region between 1 and 3″ will likely pile up and from Bangor down through the Mid-Coast and over Downeast Maine look for an average of 2 to 5″ to be on the ground. Temps today will run on the cold side as highs hold in the 30s to near 40 all across the Pine Tree State.

AM Sun Then Increasing Afternoon Clouds Today, AM Snow & Mix Friday

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 month ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Clouds will continue to gradually increase this afternoon as an upper level disturbance over the Great Lakes region continues to push towards New England. Temperatures will be cooler, more seasonable today with highs topping off in the upper 30s to mid-40s this afternoon. The upper level disturbance will also cause a new storm to develop off the Mid-Atlantic coastline later today/early tonight. The new storm is forecast to track northeastward towards southern Nova Scotia. This track is a little further west than previous forecasts and as a result, we will see some light snow and mixed precipitation later tonight into Friday. We’ll start the night under mostly cloudy skies and dry conditions. Light snow and mixed precipitation will develop later tonight mainly for areas south of Greenville and Millinocket while areas further north see just a few snow showers. Temperatures will drop to the 20s to near 30° for nighttime lows.

Brighter & Cooler Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Cooler air will continue to move into the Northeast today. Temps in the Pine Tree State today will range from the mid 30s north to the mid 40s south. A secondary cold front will cross Maine later tonight or early Friday and even colder air will filter into New England as we end the workweek. An upper level disturbance moving along the secondary cold front will bring some snow showers to our region later tonight and early Friday morning. Any accumulations associated with the front and disturbance will likely be light, with a coating to a few inches possible. The cold air will stick around for the weekend as well, with high temps running in the upper 20s north to 30s south both weekend days. The weather will generally be dry all weekend with maybe a few flurries or snow showers falling over the mountains as reinforcing shots of cold air invade the Pine Tree State.

Few Showers & Mild Today, Colder Temps Arrive Tonight

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 month ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A cold front will cross the state this afternoon bringing us a few scattered showers on its way through. It looks like the steadier/heavier showers will pass over far northern Maine and northward into Quebec so the showers that we see today will be on the light side for most locales. Otherwise, we’ll see lots of clouds and some patchy fog and drizzle for the rest of the day. Southerly winds ahead of the front will usher milder air into the region with highs reaching the 50s in most locales this afternoon. Showers will wind down this evening followed by clearing and colder weather tonight. Temperatures will drop to the mid-20s to mid-30s for nighttime lows.

Fair & Mild Today, Few Showers Wednesday

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Plan on a couple more rather mild days ahead before a much cooler airmass arrives in New England beginning Thursday. High pressure centered off the Mid-Atlantic coastline will bring a mild southerly breeze to much of Maine today, but northern parts of the state will remain stuck to the north of a front and that will keep temps north of Greenville and Millinocket running a bit cooler than locales south of the front. Skies will be variably cloudy across the state today with highs in the mid-40s to mid-50s from north to south.
