Today and Friday highs will be in the 20s and low 30s both days with a mix of sun and clouds. We could see a few snow showers either day. Saturday looks sunny, but cool, as an area of high pressure moves to New England but overnight into Sunday we’ll see a storm move into the area.

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Arctic high pressure currently centered on the west side of Hudson Bay will bring dry and cold weather to Maine as we end 2014. Temps will be very cold tonight under mostly to partly clear skies, with lows dipping below zero north and west of the Bangor Region and holding in the single numbers above zero across the rest of our region. Once again it will be dry and cold throughout Maine tomorrow as high temps range from near 10 north to the mid 20s along the coastline.

Cold Today & Tomorrow; Milder Start to 2015

Jessica Conley

Updated 1 month ago

That colder airmass we’ve been waiting for has moved in and we’ll see highs below normal today, in the upper teens and low to mid 20s. The temperature change from yesterday morning to this morning is anywhere from around 10 to around 25 degrees! It’ll feel extra cold today with the winds from the northwest at around 10 mph. Wind chill values could be in the single digits and even fall below zero this afternoon. Skies will be mostly sunny again as a ridge of high pressure keeps us bright. Overnight into Wednesday some spots in Northern Maine will see lows drop to below zero. With the clear skies and calm winds, it’s very easy to see things cool off in the overnight hours.

Bright & Much Colder Tuesday

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Much colder air will be invading our region during the next several days after a prolonged period of well above normal temperatures. An arctic cold front will continue to slip off the New England Coastline tonight and a northwest breeze behind the front will be ushering a much colder airmass into our region which will allow temps to fall into the single number to mid teens south tonight, with sub-zero reading being found up north by daybreak tomorrow. Despite sunny skies tomorrow the high temps will hold in the teens to mid 20s around our area, with even colder conditions across the north and mountains.

Cooler Temps Next Week, No Significant Snow in Sight

Jessica Conley

Updated 1 month ago

 

 

Today we’ll see the light snow across Northern Maine early, as a low pressure system moves through. Looks like the Houlton and Millinocket areas could see around an inch of accumulation, while places farther north may see up to 1 – 2”. Farther south will see less and could see some sleet or freezing rain mixing in. Places closest to the coast will see all rain. Be careful out on the roads, especially this morning when things could get a little slick. Skies become partly sunny as we head into this afternoon.

Clear & Quiet Saturday, Few Flakes Possible Sunday, and My Thoughts About Where The Snow Went

Jessica Conley

Updated 1 month ago

We’ll have mainly clear skies overnight.  Temps will cool down, but only into the upper 20s and low 30s due to the mixing from the winds that should continue to subside overnight. Saturday will feature a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the upper 30s and low to mid 40s with a light wind from the west at 5 – 10 mph. Sunday we’ll see some light snow across the area (especially Northern Maine) as a low pressure system moves though without a lot of moisture. Looks like the Houlton and Millinocket areas could see around an inch of accumulation, while places farther north may see up to 2 – 3”. Farther south will see less and could see some sleep or freezing rain mixing in. Places closest to the coast should see all rain. Be careful out on the roads, especially early Sunday.

Wet & Mild Start Today, Drier & Turning Cooler This Afternoon

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 month ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A cold front will move east of the state this afternoon. Lingering rain over eastern areas will continue to taper off thru early afternoon. Drier, cooler air moving in behind the front will allow for some breaks of sunshine this afternoon especially for areas from Dover-Foxcroft to Lincoln southward. Areas further north will likely remain mostly cloudy through the afternoon. Temperatures will be very mild today with highs in the 40s to mid-50s from north to south across the state then fall as the afternoon progresses and cooler air moves in. Skies will be clear to partly cloudy tonight. Plan on a colder night tonight with lows in the mid-20s to low 30s. Any lingering moisture on the roads, sidewalks, etc could refreeze tonight so be careful tonight and early Friday.

Low pressure will continue to track northward towards southern Michigan this afternoon and evening. Moisture streaming northward with this system will spread across Maine this afternoon. Temperatures are still hovering around 32° over much of northern Maine so freezing rain is still possible mainly early this afternoon otherwise expect just plain rain for most spots for the remainder of the day. Most areas will see temperatures reaching the mid-30s over the northern half of the state and upper 30s to mid-40s elsewhere for highs this afternoon.

Occasional Light Snow, Mix & Rain Possible Today, Wet & Milder Weather Wednesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 1 month ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Moisture streaming northward into New England ahead of low pressure over the Midwest will give us the chance for some occasional light precipitation today. Temperatures will be cold enough for precipitation to fall as snow and/or mix over inland areas while areas closer to the coast see mainly mix and light rain today. Temperatures will top off in the mid-30s to low 40s. Precipitation will be steadiest over areas south and west of Bangor. We’ll see periods of light rain and freezing rain possible tonight especially from Bangor northward with plain rain for areas closer to the coast. Be careful if travelling tonight as some roads could be icy. Temperatures will be in the upper 20s to mid-30s for nighttime lows.

Jessica Conley

Updated 1 month ago

Highs today will range from the mid-30s to the low 40s with cloudy skies and a few showers moving in as the day progresses. We could see a bit of freezing rain over northern areas. Showers will continue overnight and become steadier Wednesday. Highs Wednesday will make it into the 40s with some low 50 degree readings possible, with cloudy skies and rain continuing. Rain will be steady and even heavy at times late Wednesday into early Christmas morning (Thursday). I’m expecting 1 – 2″ of rain in the Greater Bangor Area. You’ll see less as you head north and west and slightly more as you head toward the coast. It’ll be breezy for Wednesday and into Thursday too.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will slowly slide to our east today providing us with a light east/northeast wind today. We’ll see lots of clouds around the area this afternoon with a few breaks of sunshine possible. The east/northeast wind will give us a chance for a few scattered snow showers mainly for areas south of Greenville and Millinocket. The snow showers may mix with rain for areas closer to the coastline. Temperatures today will top off in the upper 20s to mid-30s for highs. Scattered snow showers will continue through the night tonight and we could see a coating of snow in some spots. Overnight lows will bottom out in the 20s to near 30°.
