The high pressure system that kept us mostly sunny for much of the day today will do the same for tomorrow. We had an upper level disturbance that brought some clouds to the area today, but that will move to the east this evening and tonight and we’ll see skies clear up.

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will bring sunny and warm weather to all of New England the next several days. The high will build right on top of the New England Saturday and then slowly slip off to the south of New England Sunday. The high will bring mostly sunny skies to all of Maine both weekend days, with high temps climbing up into the 80s inland, but likely holding in the upper 70s to near 80 along the coastline. A few locals this weekend well inland might reach 90 degrees for the first time this year.

Rain Tapers Off This Morning, Gradually Drying Out This Afternoon

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 month ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure will move along a stalled out cold front this morning and off to our east this afternoon. As the storm moves out, rain will taper to scattered showers from west to east across the state this morning through early afternoon. Northerly winds will usher drier air into the region this afternoon which will allow skies to begin to clear out over the northern half of the state with skies expected to become partly sunny while the remainder of the state sees plenty of clouds with a few sunny breaks possible. Temperatures will be a bit below average today with highs in the mid-60s to around 70°. Any lingering clouds will clear out tonight as high pressure builds into the area. Northerly winds will continue to usher drier, more comfortable air into the region which will make for a cooler and more comfortable night. Temperatures will drop to the mid-40s to low 50s for nighttime lows.

Rain Tapering Off This Morning

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A cold front will continue to slowly drift south through Maine early today. High pressure located over central Ontario will build southeast and push the front off to our south later today, causing the showers to taper off during the day and the skies across Maine to clear during the evening hours. The combination of clouds, leftover showers and a northeast breeze will hold today’s high temps to the upper 60s to low 70s. The high over Ontario will gradually build towards the Northeast Friday and bring partly to mostly sunny skies to New England as we end the workweek. The high temps on Friday will range from the upper 70s to low 80s. The high will continue to build right on top of the Northeast during the weekend and early next week and that will help bring mostly sunny skies to our region with temps climbing into the 80s across all of interior Maine Saturday through Monday. Humidity levels will gradually climb as we move through the middle of next week and will cause the risk of showers and thundershowers to increase throughout New England.

Variably Cloudy & Becoming More Humid Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The ridge of high pressure that brought the sunny and pleasant weather to Maine today will slowly drift off to the southeast of New England today. A southwest breeze on the backside of the high will help gradually pull more humid air into our region as we move through today. The combination of the more humid airmass and a slowly approaching cold front from the north will cause skies to range from partly to mostly cloudy today. Northern parts of Maine will likely see some scattered showers and storms develop later today due to the approaching front, but the rest of the state won’t see much in the way of showers and thundershowers till later tonight or Wednesday. High temps today will range from near 70 along the coast and over the far north to the mid 70s to low 80s elsewhere across Maine.

Partly Sunny, Breezy & Cooler Friday

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The combination of strong high pressure centered near Hudson Bay and a storm system located near southern Newfoundland combined to bring a gusty northwest breeze to Maine today. The gusty wind helped pull a much less humid airmass into New England today. The overall weather pattern will change very little over the next several days as the high remains to our northwest and the storm spins over Newfoundland.

Mostly Sunny & Seasonable Stretch of Weather

Jessica Conley

Updated 1 month ago

 

It’ll be a pretty easy rest of the week and weekend in the weather office. Things look like they’ll stay mostly sunny and seasonable as far as temps go. Today a ridge of high pressure starts to move in. It’ll keep us with mainly clear and sunny skies. Another cold front crosses the state tonight. That’ll cool high temps down for tomorrow by about five to ten degrees. By Friday night a few isolated showers are possible in far northern and eastern areas but I even hesitate to mention them because I’m thinking about 98 percent of us will stay totally dry.
