Brighter, Breezy & Cool Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A large dome of high pressure will begin to build back into the Northeast today allowing skies to become partly to mostly sunny. The northwest breeze behind the cold front and on the eastside of the approaching high will bring a rather cool airmass into New England as we end the workweek today with high temps only reaching the upper 50s across the north and the low to mid 60s elsewhere across Maine. The ridge of high pressure will drift east across northern New England tonight and early Saturday morning. The high will bring clear skies and a light wind to our region tonight and that will allow the temps to dip into the 30s to low 40s by daybreak Saturday, with possible patchy frost developing across the valleys north and west of the Bangor region.

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A cold front will cross the state later this afternoon and this evening bringing us some showers on its way through. Showers associated with the front will spread eastward across the entire state by early-mid afternoon. With clouds and showers in the forecast, temperatures will be below average with highs in the low to mid-60s this afternoon. Showers will end early tonight as the front clears the state followed by clearing skies late as winds shift to the northwest and usher drier air into the region. Temperatures will drop to the mid-40s to around 50° for nighttime lows.

Clouds will thicken up across all of Maine this morning as a cold front continues to head in our direction. Showers associated with the front will cross our region beginning later this morning and continuing into the evening hours. The steadiest showers today will likely fall across northern and western parts of Maine, with much lighter showers likely falling closer to the coastline. High temps across Maine today will range from the mid 60s to lower 70s and the humidity levels will creep up a bit on a southerly breeze.

Mostly Sunny & Seasonable Today, Showers Arrive Thursday

Todd Simcox

Updated 2 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will give us another beautiful day with mostly sunny skies and highs getting up to a couple degrees either side of 70° this afternoon. Clouds will move back in during the night tonight as a cold front approaches from the west and a southerly flow off the ocean brings moisture into the area resulting in some more low clouds and patchy fog like we saw in some locales this morning. With more clouds tonight and a more humid airmass moving into the region, temperatures will be a bit milder with lows expected to bottom out in the 50s tonight.

High pressure will continue to provide us with sunny skies this afternoon and high temperatures around 70° on average. Skies will be mostly clear tonight for most spots. Computer models are showing some moisture moving into coastal and southern parts of the state which should result in a few clouds in those locales while areas further inland remain clear.

High pressure is forecast to slide through the area today and then off to our east for Tuesday and Wednesday. This will give us some beautiful weather through Wednesday with lots of sunshine each day and high temperatures topping off near or a little below average for this time of year (average temperatures for early-mid September range from 69°-73°).

Weather wise, things stay quiet though Wednesday. Highs will be in the upper 60s and low to mid 70s which is right around normal. There will be plenty of sunshine through Wednesday too as high pressure controls the weather in our area. Overnight lows could become quite cold as clear skies and calm winds will be occurring, especially tonight and Monday night, where overnight lows could fall into the low 30s near Houlton.

Jessica Conley

Updated 2 weeks ago

Today things will quiet down quite a bit and stay quiet though Thursday. Highs will be in the low to mid 70s which is right around normal; in fact, they’ll stay around normal through the first half of the work week and be anywhere from the upper 60s to low to mid 70s each day. There will be plenty of sunshine from Sunday through Wednesday too as high pressure controls the weather in our area. Overnight lows could become quite cold as clear skies and calm winds will be occurring, especially Sunday night and Monday night, where overnight lows could fall into the low 30s near Houlton. The GFS (a weather model) actually puts out an overnight low of 30 degrees. Brrrr!

Showers & Thunderstorms for the Rest of Today, Sunny & Cooler Tomorrow

Jessica Conley

Updated 2 weeks ago

Today’s high temperatures stay warm, making it into the mid 70s at the coast and into the upper 70s and lower 80s inland. We’ll see some clouds to start the day with showers and thunderstorms developing in the afternoon and evening, from northwest to southeast, as a cold front moves through the region. The Storm Prediction Center has put us in a “slight risk” category for severe weather and I’m thinking it will be very likely. Looks like strong, gusty winds, frequent lightning, and heavy downpours all may be possible into late this evening. Overnight lows into Sunday cool off into the mid 40s north, and in the low to mid 50s everywhere else.

Warm & Humid This Afternoon, Showers & T’storms Saturday

Todd Simcox

Updated 3 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

We’ll continue to see partly to mostly sunny skies and very warm temperatures this afternoon with highs topping off in the upper 70s to low 80s along the coastline and mainly mid-80s inland. South/southwesterly winds will usher more humidity back into the region so you’ll notice the air becoming more and more sticky as the day progresses. Most locations should stay dry tonight but I can’t rule out a few widely scattered showers as a cold front approaches the state. It will be a very mild and very sticky night with low temperatures in the 60s to near 70°.

Mostly Sunny, Mild & Pleasant Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 3 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

High pressure building into the Northeast will bring our region mostly sunny skies today as it continues to slowly move east. Highs today will range from the upper 70s to low 80s. The high will gradually move east off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline tonight. As the high shifts off to our southeast a southwest breeze will begin to usher high humidity levels back into Maine Friday. A storm riding east from the Hudson Bay region will pull a cold front into western New England later Friday night, with the front slowly crossing Maine on Saturday. A small storm will likely develop along the front Friday night and Saturday and that will bring our region a period of rain starting later Friday night or early Saturday. The periods of showers will continue across much of our area during the daylight hours Saturday, with the rain finally tapering off towards evening as the front pushes off to our east. Cooler and less humid air will filter back into Saturday night and Sunday as the wind shifts into the northwest behind the front. A large dome of high pressure will build south from Quebec and bring New England bright skies with near seasonable temps Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
