Low pressure will move into the Ohio River Valley this morning before it begins to redevelop just off the southeast U.S.
Dry weather returns today as high pressure builds into the region.
Cooler air will filter into the Pine Tree State today as the cold front continues to move off to our east and a northwest breeze slowly picks up.
A cold front is forecast to cross the state this afternoon and evening.
A southwest breeze will keep the temps running well above normal today despite a good deal of clouds and some hit and miss showers.
A warm front moving towards the area will give us a chance for a few showers this afternoon with the best chance being over areas west and north of Bangor.
Low pressure approaching from the Great Lakes will push some clouds into the region today.
Showers are lingering over areas north and east of Bangor as of noontime today.
A ridge of high pressure building in will bring brightening skies for most of us today seeing a mix of sun and clouds.
We’ll see mainly cloudy skies for the day today with some scattered showers possible.
A line of rain showers will move though the state overnight tonight and into early tomorrow morning ahead of a cold front that will be crossing Maine.

As the storm system that brought all the rain and blustery conditions to our region continues to move northeast through the Maritimes of Canada the conditions across Maine will slowly dry out tonight.
