Showers, Breezy & Mild Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A gusty southerly wind on the backside of strong high pressure anchored off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline is currently pulling a very warm airmass north along the Eastern Seaboard. The gusty southerly breeze will continue today and temps throughout Maine will continue to run well above normal as highs range from the mid 50s at the coastline to the low to mid 60s inland this afternoon. An approaching cold front will bring mostly cloudy skies to New England today, with showers ahead of the cold front spreading from west to east across our region as the day moves along. The showers will become steadier and heavier tonight as the strong cold front sweeps east across New England. The showers may briefly change to snow before ending early Wednesday morning as a very chilly airmass begins to spill into our region on a brisk northwest breeze. Temperatures late tonight will fall into the 30s as the colder air builds back into our region and high temps Wednesday will hold in the 30s to low 40s despite a fair amount of afternoon sunshine. A gusty northwest breeze will make it feel even colder than it is Wednesday as the wind chill values run mostly in the 20s, with even some teens being found in the higher elevations of northern Maine.

Brightening Skies & Milder Today, Wet & Mild Tuesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 5 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Clouds will continue to thin out as we head through the afternoon.  Milder air arriving on gusty southerly winds will push temperatures into the 60s in most locales this afternoon however, with winds out of the south, temperatures will be a bit cooler along the coast where highs will likely stay in the mid-upper 50s. The warm front will be just to our north during the day so we could still see a shower over far northern Maine but otherwise we’ll see a dry and mild day for a majority of the state. Skies will become cloudy tonight we’ll see some scattered showers moving in after midnight. Temperatures will remain mild through the night with lows in the upper 40s to low-50s.

Updated 5 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A warm front is forecast to move north of Maine this morning, allowing a milder airmass to move into the region on a strong southerly wind. We’ll start the day under gray skies and some patchy fog but that will all burn off and we’ll see brightening skies as the morning progresses. With milder air arriving, high temperatures will top off in the 60s to around 70° in most locales this afternoon however, with winds out of the south, temperatures will be a bit cooler along the coast where highs will likely stay in the mid-upper 50s. The warm front will be just to our north during the day so we could still see a shower over far northern Maine but otherwise we’ll see a dry and mild day for a majority of the state.

Rain Developing Today, Milder Temps Monday

Todd Simcox

Updated 5 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

Low pressure moving through the Great Lakes will continue to bring a warm front towards Maine today. This will bring us periods of rain especially from late morning thru the evening hours, the steadiest and heaviest of which will fall over areas north of Bangor while the rest of the state sees the rain more showery in nature. Temperatures will be cold enough this morning so that northern areas see some light snow or mix before changing to rain by noontime or so. It looks like the warm front will stay south of the state during the day which means that with the clouds and occasional rain in place, temperatures will be cooler with highs only in the 40s in most spots. The warm front is expected to push northward through the state tonight, gradually bringing the rain to an end from south to north.

The cold front that brought us some showers to start our Friday has cleared the state and any lingering clouds have given way to mostly sunny skies as of noontime. We’ll continue with plenty of sunshine this afternoon and temperatures will top off a couple degrees either side of 60° for highs. A weak area of low pressure is forecast to pass just offshore tonight, close enough to just graze coastal and southern parts of the state with some clouds and a few light showers otherwise we’ll see clear to partly cloudy skies across the rest of the state. Temperatures will be in the upper 20s to mid-30s for nighttime lows.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A ridge of high pressure will slide east of the region today. South/southwest winds on the backside of the high will bring us a seasonable afternoon.

Plan on bright and and chilly weather across Maine today as low pressure continues to lift north through eastern Canada and high pressure approaches from the west.

Wet, Breezy & Mild Today, Sun Returns Wednesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 5 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

The heaviest rain has shifted east of the state and we’ll hang on to clouds and some scattered showers through the afternoon and evening hours. The strongest winds have shifted east too so expect wind speeds averaging between 5-15 MPH for the remainder of the day. The National Weather Service continues the Flood Watch for Southern Piscataquis, Central and Southern Penobscot, Hancock and Washington Counties through late tonight to account for the potential of some minor flooding especially in poor drainage areas and some area rivers and streams as a result of the combination of snowmelt and rainfall. Despite the clouds and rain, temperatures will still reach the upper 40s to mid-50s for highs. Any lingering showers will wind down early tonight followed by clearing skies late.

Blustery with Rain Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure will move up into southwestern Quebec tomorrow afternoon. With the storm passing up to our west this morning, Maine will be on the milder side of the storm and that means most if not all the precipitation will fall as rain across the Pine Tree State. Rainfall will likely range from .50″ to 1.5″ across our area and that along with melting snow could lead to some localized flooding, especially near streams and rivers. There is also the possibility of ice jams forming on some of the rivers and streams up north as the milder air and rain help break up some of the thick ice that still covers those waterways. A gusty southerly wind will pull a rather mild airmass into New England Tuesday and despite clouds and rain showers temperatures will climb into the upper 40s to mid 50s in our region.

High pressure will slide through the area today giving us a beautiful start to the work week. We’ll see partly to mostly sunny skies today with highs topping off in the 50s to near 60°. As the area of high pressure slides to our east this afternoon, we’ll see clouds increasing mid-late afternoon as our next storm approaches from the south and west.

It will be cold enough for the precipitation to start as some snow and/or mix for the Greenville area to Millinocket and points north while the remainder of the state sees plain rain. We could see a slushy inch or two of accumulation in spots by daybreak.

Sun to Increasing Clouds Late Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 5 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

High pressure along the Mid-Atlantic coastline will bring fair and pleasant weather to our region today as it continues to slip off towards the east. High temps today will reach the upper 40s to mid 50s from north to south, with an afternoon seabreeze cooling the temps a bit along the shoreline. As the high moves off to our east clouds ahead of our next storm system will begin to invade our area later this afternoon and evening. The next storm will move from the Tennessee River Valley this evening up into southwestern Quebec Tuesday evening. Maine will be on the milder side of the storm as it passes up to our west and that means most if not all the precipitation will fall as rain across our region later tonight and part of Tuesday. Rainfall will likely range from .50″ to 1.5″ across our area and that along with melting snow could lead to some localized flooding, especially near streams and rivers. Stay tuned to the latest forecast regarding possible flooding. A gusty southerly wind will pull a rather mild airmass into New England Tuesday and despite clouds and rain showers temperatures will climb into the upper 40s to mid 50s in our region.
