A weak area of high pressure over the area today will bring us a quiet start to the work week. We’ll see some cloudiness streaming in well in advance of a storm over the center part of the country.

Temps will be cooler Thursday with highs reaching into the upper 30s and low to mid 40s. It’ll become mostly sunny by Thursday afternoon because of a weak area of high pressure off to our southwest. Friday highs will range from the low 30s to the low 40s with a few snow showers possible.

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The storm that brought rain to much of Maine and the snow to the northernmost parts of the state will continue to lift northeast and during Saturday it will be located over Newfoundland. The northwest breeze on the backside of the storm will continue to usher cold air into New England Saturday. Despite partly sunny skies the temps Saturday will hold in the 30s to lower 40s, with the somewhat gusty breeze making it feel even a bit cooler. A weak cold front will bring a few more clouds to Maine Saturday night and part of Sunday. The front may kick off a few light rain and snow showers across northern parts of Maine Sunday otherwise it should remain dry all weekend long. Temperatures at the beginning of the workweek will be rather seasonable, but some very cold air will likely begin to invade the Northeast beginning Wednesday.

Rain South & Wintry Mix North Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm currently moving east through the Ohio River Valley will redevelop just to the south of the Southern New England Coastline this evening and then intensify as it moves northeast just off our coastline tomorrow morning. Low pressure, passing just off our coastline, will bring our region rain and a rather strong and gusty wind as it moves northeast this morning. With the storm remaining off to our southeast, a northerly breeze will bring cooler air into Maine, allowing the precipitation to mix with then change to wet snow over northern and western parts of the state. From the Skowhegan, Dover-Foxcroft and Lincoln areas on south the bulk if not all the precipitation will fall as a chilly rain. In general from the Greenville and Millinocket areas on north and west mixed rain and snow will turn to mostly snow before tapering off later today. As colder air aloft continues to feed south through the Pine Tree State the rain may briefly mix with a bit of wet snow as far south in the Bangor area just before ending today. Around the Skowhegan, Dover-Foxcroft and Lincoln regions a coating to an inch or two will be possible today as the rain in those locales changes over more quickly to a wintry mix. On a line from Greenville to Millinocket and Houlton generally 2 to 5″ will likely pile up before the storm tapers off, with 6 to 12″ accumulating across far northern parts of the state.

Partly Sunny Tuesday, More Clouds for Wednesday

Jessica Conley

Updated 3 weeks ago

The storm system that brought the record setting early season snowfall and a strong and gusty wind to our region yesterday continues to pull northeast through eastern Canada. The wind will die off and the skies will become mostly clear tonight as the storm continues to lift northeast and a weak ridge approaches from the southwest. The combination of a mostly clear sky, a light wind late and a fresh snow cover will lead to unseasonable cold temps tonight as lows dip into the mid teens to mid 20s across much of interior Maine, with slightly milder temps being found along the coastline.

Brightening Skies & Breezy This Afternoon, Milder Temps This Week

Todd Simcox

Updated 3 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

The storm that brought a big, wintry mess to parts of the state yesterday will continue to pull away from the area this afternoon. Skies will continue to brighten this afternoon, becoming partly to mostly sunny from west to east across the state. With strong low pressure to our east and high pressure approaching from the west, the pressure gradient remains fairly tight over the area today resulting in breezy conditions. Northwest winds will average about 10-20 MPH today with gusts to 25-30 MPH possible. Temperatures will be below average (mid-40s to around 50°) today with highs in the mid-30s to mid-40s from north to south across the state. The combination of some sunshine, temperatures near or above 40° in many spots, and a northwest breeze, will allow a lot of the snow to fall off of the tree limbs and power lines, relieving some of the stress the snow has placed on them. We’ll see clear skies tonight and temperatures dropping into the 20s for nighttime lows. With temperatures below freezing tonight, we may see some icy spots on untreated surfaces so use caution on the roads tonight and/or early Tuesday morning.
