High pressure will be controlling our weather for the next five days. This means we will see plenty of sunshine with warm temperatures too. Tomorrow will be about 5 degrees warmer than today and by Wednesday we should be about five degrees warmer than that. Our normal high for today in Bangor is 77 degrees. Wednesday night into Thursday a cold front comes through which will drop our temperature back to around normal by Thursday.

Sunny Saturday, Warmer Sunday Through Wednesday

Jessica Conley

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The high to our north will slowly settle south over the weekend and early next week. The high will bring partly to mostly sunny skies to Maine today and mostly sunny skies Sunday through Wednesday. As the high settles to our south a southwest breeze will develop all across New England and that will cause temps to warm back up to above normal levels. Temps Saturday will run in the low to mid 70s, with highs Sunday through Wednesday likely reaching the mid 70s to mid 80s, along with slowly increasing humidity levels. A cold front approaching Maine from the north will bring an increased risk of scattered showers to our region later Thursday into Friday.

Brighter & Milder this Weekend

Chris Ewing

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A ridge of high pressure currently centered over Quebec is forcing a weak storm over New York State to take a track off to the south of New England tonight and early tomorrow. With the storm sliding southeast of our region most of its precipitation will also slip off to our south, but a weak disturbance aloft riding through New England tonight will help kick off a few hit and miss showers across the Pine Tree State, but most locals will stay rain-free this evening. Low temps tonight throughout our region will hold in the low to mid 50s.

Few Widely Scattered Showers Today, Brighter & Warmer Weekend Ahead

Todd Simcox

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

An upper level disturbance crossing the region today will give us variably cloudy skies this afternoon along with the chance for a few more widely scattered showers. With clouds in place and a cooler northeast wind, temperatures will run near or a little below average with highs mainly in the low to mid-70s. Any showers that develop will wind down this evening followed by partial clearing as high pressure builds in from the north. Nighttime lows will drop to the low to mid-50s for most locales with a few spots up north possible cooling into the upper 40s.

Few Hit & Miss Showers Today, Bright & Milder Over the Weekend

Chris Ewing

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Nearly stationary high pressure currently centered to the north of New England will force much of the moisture associated with a storm riding east from the eastern Great Lakes Region to slide off to the south of Maine today. The northern fringe of the storm’s moisture shield will interact with upper level energy and bring scattered showers to parts of our region today with the bulk of the hit and miss showers falling over southern and central parts of Maine. The high to our north will keep the skies brightest north of the Bangor region today. High temps today will range from the upper 60s along the coast to the low to mid 70s inland.

Variably Cloudy & Slightly Cooler the Next Few Days

Chris Ewing

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

High pressure to our north will force a series of weak storms to pass offshore well south of Maine as they move from the Ohio River Valley to well off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline today through Saturday. With the storm track later this week remaining well south of Maine the skies across our region should average partly sunny and temps will run in the 70s to near 80 this afternoon and be a bit cooler Friday and Saturday as a slightly cooler airmass filters south into New England from the Canadian Maritimes. A northeast breeze late this week will keep the temps coolest along the coastline both Friday and Saturday. A couple of weak disturbances aloft today through Saturday will keep the atmosphere a bit unstable and that could lead to a few widely scattered showers popping up across the Pine Tree State, but most towns will likely not see them. The best chance for seeing a brief shower or two over the next couple of days will be over the western parts of Maine.

Mix of Sun & Clouds Today and Friday, Nice Weekend Ahead

Todd Simcox

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A weakening storm system over the Great Lakes region will push some clouds into our area today and Friday. Each of the days will also feature a slight chance of a widely scattered afternoon shower or thunderstorm however the thinking is that the chances are very minimal and that most locales will remain dry. That being said, today and tomorrow will be pretty good days overall featuring more clouds than we’ve seen the past few days. With more clouds in place today, temperatures will be a bit cooler today with highs in the 70s to near 80°. Friday’s temperatures will be even cooler due to the clouds and a cooler northeast wind, expect highs in the low to mid-70s Friday afternoon.

A ridge of high pressure currently located just south of James Bay will build east over southeastern Canada and bring New England mostly sunny skies along with milder temps the next few days.

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm in the upper levels of the atmosphere slowing moving east across southern Ontario and Quebec will continue to control the weather across Maine today.  The upper level low and its associated pool of cool air aloft will keep the atmosphere over northern New England rather unstable, leading to skies ranging from partly to mostly cloudy with a few scattered showers popping-up from time to time. The bulk of the showers will likely fall over the north and mountains.

A storm in the upper levels of the atmosphere will slowly drift east across southeastern Ontario and Quebec today and Saturday.

Rain Tapering to Showers Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 3 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The steadier rainfall will taper off from south to north today as the surface low lifts up towards the Bay of Fundy later in the day. The best chance of seeing a little sun later today will be over southern and central parts of Maine, but the atmosphere aloft will continue to remain unstable even later in the day and that will likely lead to more pop-up showers developing. High temps today will range from the upper 60s north to the low to mid 70s south.
