From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm currently moving through the Upper Midwest will slide northeast through Ontario and into Quebec later tomorrow afternoon and night. As the storm passes to our north its trailing cold front will swing through New England Friday night and produce a round of scattered rain and snow showers here. From the Bangor region on southward the bulk if not all of the light precipitation tomorrow night will fall in the form of rain showers, while from the Greenville and Millinocket regions on north most of the precipitation will fall as snow. Northern parts of Maine might pick up a coating to 2” of snow by Saturday morning.

Milder & Not as Windy Today, More Clouds Friday

Updated 9 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will continue to dominate our forecast today giving us another sunny day. We will see some high cloudiness from time to time as our next storm approaches from the west but overall sunshine is expected to prevail. The area of high pressure will slide to our south though causing our winds to shift from the chilly northwest direction we had yesterday and on Tuesday, to a milder west/southwest direction which will bring us some more seasonable temps. Temperatures will top off in the 40s for highs this afternoon. Skies will be partly cloudy tonight and we’ll see a wide range in temperatures from the teens over northern and eastern areas to the 20s elsewhere.

Clear & Cold Tonight, Fair & Slowly Warming Thursday

Updated 9 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The ridge of high pressure that brought the bright, blustery and chilly weather to Maine today will slide east from the Great Lakes Region and sit right on top of New England later tonight. As the high approaches our region the wind will diminish and that along with clear skies will lead to radiational cooling as temps fall into the teens to near 20 by daybreak tomorrow, with a few of the valleys up north even falling into the upper single numbers. A light southerly breeze will develop here tomorrow as the high begins to drift off to our east. High temps tomorrow will range from the mid 30s to mid 40s from north to south across Maine.

High pressure will build towards New England today providing us with lots of sunshine today. We’ll remain on the cool side of the high today with highs mainly in the 30s today. Northwest winds will remain gusty today with gusts to 30 MPH possible which will give us wind chills in the teens and 20s at times throughout the day.

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

The large ridge of high pressure currently located just north of the Great Lakes Region will slowly move east and continue to control the weather here tomorrow through Friday. A northwest breeze on the east side of the high will keep the weather dry and chilly tomorrow, with high temps running in the upper 20s across far northern Maine to the 30s to near 40 throughout the rest of the state. Slighter milder air will move into our region both Thursday and Friday on a weak southerly breeze that develops on the backside of the high as it works off to our east.

Breezy & Chilly Today, Lots of Sun Wednesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 9 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

An upper level disturbance will pass through the region today and will provide us with some cloudiness and a few scattered snow showers as well. The further north you travel the better chance you have to get some snow showers, while the further south you travel across the state today, the brighter it will be. Northwest winds will be gusty, up to 30-35 MPH, ushering much colder air into the region with temperatures only topping off in the 30s to near 40° for highs, about 20° colder than yesterday. Skies will clear tonight and temperatures will drop to around 20° on average. Northwest winds will remain around 10-15 MPH through the night so wind chills will feel like it’s in the single digits in some locales.
