From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A cold front will cross the state early this afternoon. The front will be accompanied by a line of heavy showers and gusty, possibly damaging winds. South/southwesterly winds could gust to 40-50 MPH inland and 50-60 MPH along the coast as the front moves through. Drier air moving in behind the cold front may allow for breaks in the clouds to develop mid-late afternoon. We have a dry night ahead tonight with skies turning clear to partly cloudy. Temperatures will drop to the 40s in most spots for nighttime lows.

Windy, Wet & Mild Start to November

Chris Ewing

Updated 9 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

A strong storm sliding northeast across Ontario and Quebec tonight and tomorrow will pull a warm front through Maine tonight followed by a cold front later tomorrow. The combination of the fronts and strong storm will bring a very strong and gusty southerly wind to our region beginning late tonight and lasting through the daylight hours tomorrow. The wind may gust over 40 mph inland and over 50 mph along the coastline and hilltops. The strong southerly wind will usher a very mild airmass into all of New England for the first day of November as high temps run nearly 20 degrees above normal despite a lack of sunshine. The warm and cold fronts will also produce periods of showers here tonight and tomorrow, with some of the rain falling heavily at times. Most of Maine will receive between .50” and 1.00” of rain by the time the cold front exits to our east and the showers come to an end.

Mostly Cloudy This Afternoon With Showers Developing, Wet, Windy & Mild Friday

Todd Simcox

Updated 9 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Clouds will continue to thicken this afternoon as low pressure moves through the Great Lakes region. The area of low pressure will pull a warm front northward towards New England later today which will give us a chance for some afternoon/evening showers. Thanks to southerly winds today, temperatures will be a bit warmer than they have been the past few days with highs climbing into the upper 40s to mid-50s this afternoon. Rain will become steadier and heavier during the night tonight. Temperatures will hold in the upper 40s to mid-50s this evening then slowly climb into the low to mid-50s for most spots after midnight as the warm front lifts northward through the state.

Increasing Clouds, with Possible Late Showers Tomorrow

Chris Ewing

Updated 9 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

The ridge of high pressure that brought the bright and chilly weather to Maine the past couple of days will slide off to our east later tonight and tomorrow morning. As the high departs to our east a warm front associated with a storm moving northeast through the Great lakes Region will approach New England. The warm front will bring increasing clouds to our region tomorrow after a bit of morning sunshine. Scattered showers will begin to develop in our area as the warm front moves into New England later tomorrow afternoon or evening. The storm over the Great Lakes tomorrow will continue to move northeast up into Canada tomorrow night and Friday. The combination of the storm passing to our north and its trailing cold front sliding into the Northeast will bring periods of rain to Maine Friday. Despite the lack of sunshine a strong southerly breeze will cause temps to run well above normal here as we begin the month of November on Friday. Highs Friday will range from the upper 50s north to the mid 60s south as a southerly wind gusts to over 30 mph.

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The ridge of high pressure that brought the fair and cool conditions to our region today will continue to control the weather here tomorrow. A weak disturbance aloft sliding east from the Great Lakes Region will bring a few clouds to Maine late tonight and early tomorrow but little if any precipitation will occur with the troughs passage. Temps tonight will once again fall into the 20s statewide, with highs on Wednesday reaching up into the 40s.

Updated 9 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will build into the area today giving us lots of sunshine. With cooler air in place, temperatures will be below average today with highs in the low to mid-40s for most locales with a few spots up north staying in the upper 30s. We’ll start the night under clear skies followed by increasing clouds after midnight as an upper level disturbance approaches from the west. With clear skies and light winds expected, temperatures will fall pretty quickly early tonight before bottoming out as the clouds start to move in. Temperatures will fall to the upper teens to mid-20s for most spots before the clouds arrive.

Fair & Chilly Tonight through Wednesday

Chris Ewing

Updated 9 months ago

from the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

As the cold front that brought the scattered rain and snow showers to Maine today sweeps offshore this evening the skies across our region will become mostly clear. High pressure currently centered just west of the Hudson Bay Region will build southeast and control the weather across New England both tomorrow and Wednesday. A northwest breeze on the eastside of the high will usher a chilly airmass into our area beginning later tonight and lasting through Wednesday. Low temps tonight will fall into the 20s all across the state, with even a few a few teens showing up over the deeper valleys well north of the Bangor region. Despite a good deal of sunshine tomorrow high temps in Maine will hold in the upper 30s across the far north to the 40s elsewhere in the state.

Showers Possible Today, Cooler Temps Tuesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 9 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Weak low pressure will pull a cold front through the state this afternoon bringing scattered showers to some parts of the state this afternoon. The bulk of the showers will fall north of Bangor with a lesser chance for showers from Bangor southward to the coast. The airmass will stay cold enough so that areas north of Greenville and Millinocket will see the showers mix with some snow at times. Temperatures will top off in the 40s to around 50° for highs this afternoon. Showers are expected to move out of the state later this afternoon and early this evening. Skies will then clear out as we head into the night tonight. Slightly cooler air will move in behind the front so with skies turning clear tonight and light winds expected, temperatures will be chilly with nighttime lows in the 20s.

Chilly with Some Sunshine to Start the Week

Jessica Conley

Updated 9 months ago

 

Rain and snow showers continue overnight tonight ahead of an approaching cold front. The snow will mostly be confined to the mountains/higher elevations and in far northern Maine. A few lingering showers to start out the day on Sunday are possible. We’ll see seasonable high temperatures for the second half of the weekend with a mix of sun and clouds. Overnight lows drop again by Sunday night as skies stay mostly clear. Again a mix of sun and clouds for Monday with rain and snow showers moving in for the afternoon and evening as another cold front moves through the area. Overnight lows Monday night will be cold with some locations possible experiencing upper teens. We’ll clear out on Tuesday as a high pressure system moves in. Temps stay quite cool though with highs only in the low to mid 40s. It looks like it will continue to stay dry and mostly sunny through the day on Wednesday as the high pressure system holds in place. We’ll start out partly sunny on Thursday too but then the warm front approaches the area and brings afternoon and evening rain showers for Thursday night. It will also bring much more mild temps for Thursday night and into Friday. Friday the cold front associated with the same low pressure system crosses the area and brings more showers. Rain could be steady at times. Highs will be above normal Friday.

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm moving east from southern Ontario into Quebec will pull a cold front through the Northeast Saturday night and early Sunday morning. The front will bring a round of showers to our region Saturday evening through early Sunday morning as it crosses New England. The higher elevations of northwestern Maine may see a few wet snowflakes mix in with the rain showers as temps will likely be just cold enough for that to occur.

Partly Sunny, Breezy & Cool Friday

Chris Ewing

Updated 9 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm centered near Newfoundland brought a gusty northwest breeze to Maine today. The gusty wind helped usher a chilly airmass into the Pine Tree State today and the cool air will remain across our region both tomorrow and Saturday. A dome of high pressure will bring generally fair skies to Maine to go along with the chilly temps tomorrow and the first half of Saturday as high temps hold in the 40s to very low 50s both days all across the state, with low temps running in the mid 20s to lower 30s. A storm moving east from the Great Lakes Region will produce a round of showers in Maine beginning later Saturday evening and continuing into Sunday morning, with a few snowflakes possibly mixed with the rain over northern parts of the state. High pressure building southeast from central Canada will bring more dry and chilly into New England as the workweek begins on Monday. The dry and chilly conditions will continue on Tuesday as high pressure dominates our weather, with a storm possibly bringing some rain and snow to Northern New England later Wednesday or Halloween.

Breezy & Cool Weather Continues, No Big Storms In Sight

Todd Simcox

Updated 9 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure out over the Atlantic will move away from New England today. On the backside of the departing storm, winds will remain gusty with west/southwest winds gusting to 25-30 MPH today. Clouds will continue to increase this afternoon as an upper level disturbance approaches from the north and west. Temperatures will be in the mid-40s to low 50s but feel much cooler with the gusty wind factored in. Skies will be variably cloudy tonight as the upper level disturbance crosses the state.

Breezy & Cool the Next Few Days

Chris Ewing

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A storm currently developing off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline will track northeast tonight. The storm will likely bring partly to mostly cloudy skies to our region tonight, but the bulk if not all of the storms precipitation should stay well offshore as the low moves east of the Gulf of Maine. Far eastern parts of Maine might see a few light showers later this evening as the storm slides to our east, but any light showers or sprinkles that develop along the coastline will end before daybreak tomorrow.

Cooler Temperatures Are Here, Showers Possible East Today

Jessica Conley

Updated 9 months ago

The cold front has crossed the area and that is leaving us with much cooler temperatures for today. We’ll be about ten degrees cooler than where we were yesterday. We’ll see a somewhat unsettled pattern for the remainder of the week and into the weekend as well. There is currently a low to our southeast which will bring a few showers possible along the coast this evening. Other than that it looks like partly to mostly sunny skies today. By tomorrow, an approaching trough will bring us some clouds with the chance for some mountain flurries.  It’ll bring us a mix of sun and clouds for Friday. By Saturday, things try to clear out partially as a high pressure tries to ridge into the area. Then a second approaching low moves in for Saturday afternoon and evening. It looks like some snow showers are possible Saturday night into Sunday, especially in higher elevations and in far northern Maine where temps will stay slightly cooler. The low will keep us cloudy for Sunday.

After a prolonged period of milder than normal temps the conditions across our region will be turning cooler over the next several days. A cold front slipping through New England this evening will bring an end to the scattered showers across Maine and skies will begin to clear out after midnight. A northwest breeze on the backside of the cold front will begin to usher a chillier airmass into our area late tonight, with low temps falling into the 30s by daybreak tomorrow.
