From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A front approaching New England from the west will bring increasing clouds to Maine this evening, with a bit of light rain and freezing rain possibly developing late. The best chance of seeing the light rain and freezing rain tonight will be over northern and western parts of Maine. Temps tonight will remain very mild for this time of year as lows hold in the mid 20s to mid 30s, with the coolest temps occurring in the valleys north and west of the Bangor region.

Updated 9 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Partly to mostly sunny skies will prevail for the rest of the day with well above average temperatures as highs top off in the mid-30s to mid-40s from north to south across the state. Skies will turn cloudy tonight as a cold front approaches from the west followed by light precipitation moving especially after midnight. Temperatures will need to be watched tonight for precipitation types. Precipitation will likely fall as freezing rain especially areas from Dover-Foxcroft to Lincoln north and west where temperatures will drop to near or just a little below 32°. Temperatures elsewhere will be a few degrees warmer with lows in the mid to upper 30s so precipitation is expected to be plain rain but with the colder ground we could still see some icy spots so use caution if you have travel plans tonight or early tomorrow.

Mild & Sunny Monday, Rainy Tuesday

Jessica Conley

Updated 9 months ago

 

Temperatures cool off overnight into the upper teens and 20s with partly cloudy skies. As we head into tomorrow a high pressure ridge moves into the area. That will keep skies mostly sunny though the day. We’ll have mild temps as well. By Tuesday a low moves to our north and swings a cold front through early. Then a weak low will develop in the Gulf of Maine. That will cause some rain showers in the area during the day. We could see some mixed precip in there as well, especially north. Far Northern Maine could also see some snow showers. It looks like the precip will start in the mid morning and go until the evening. Total precipitation looks to be around a quarter of an inch.

Morning Ice Then Rain & Wind This Afternoon Thru Tonight

Todd Simcox

Updated 10 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The combination of high pressure moving east off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline and an intensifying storm sliding north well to the west of New England today will bring an increasing southerly wind to Maine. The gusty southerly breeze will draw a moist airmass up the eastern seaboard and into New England during the first half of the weekend. The atmosphere will warm significantly today to allow this morning’s freezing drizzle and freezing rain to turn over to plain rain as the day moves along. Very icy conditions will exist until the surface temps rise above freezing later this morning and very early this afternoon.  The rain will become steadier and heavier later in the day, with rain likely heavy at times during the evening hours. One to two inches of rain will likely fall across our region by late tonight/early Sunday morning. The combination of heavy rain along with melting snow and ice could lead to localized flooding all across the Pine Tree State. A strong southerly breeze may gust to near 50 mph later today and early tonight. The gusty south wind will cause afternoon and evening temps to climb well up into the 40s all across the state.

Few Snow Showers & Milder Today, Wet & Mild Saturday

Todd Simcox

Updated 10 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will move east of the area today, turning our winds around to a milder southwesterly direction. Temperatures this will top off in the 20s to around 30° which is exactly where our temperatures should be for this time of year. An upper level disturbance is forecast to pass through New England today and could give us a few snow showers mainly over southern and coastal parts of the state otherwise we’ll see variably cloudy skies with most of the sunshine shining over northern areas. We’ll have a dry night tonight with increasing clouds after midnight as low pressure moves into the Great Lakes region.

The ridge of arctic high pressure that produced the fair, breezy and cold conditions across Maine the past three days will slip east off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline tonight. After mostly clear skies early tonight clouds ahead of a weak disturbance aloft will begin to push into mostly southern parts of our area. Low temps tonight will range between -7 and +7, with the coldest reading being found north of the Bangor region.

Cold with Sun Thursday and Friday; Becoming Mild This Weekend

Jessica Conley

Updated 10 months ago

Things will cool off again tonight into the single digits with northern most locations dropping below zero. We will have mostly clear skies with the high pressure system to our south and west keeping it clear. The high moves closer to the state tomorrow which will leave us with mostly clear skies. We’ll see high temperatures making it into the upper teens and low to mid 20s. It will be breezy tomorrow though with winds out of the northwest at 5-15 mph. Wind chills will fall below zero in some of the usually colder spots (north and mountains). We’ll drop into the negative and positive single digits overnight into Friday.

Sunny, Breezy & Chilly Today and Thursday, Warmer End of Week

Todd Simcox

Updated 10 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure building into the area will provide us with some sunshine today. Lingering moisture wrapping around low pressure to our north will provide the northern half of Maine with a few more clouds today otherwise sunshine is expected to prevail.  With low pressure to our north and high pressure to our south, the pressure gradient over the area will remain fairly tight resulting in gusty westerly winds today. Temperatures will be in the teens to around 20° for highs this afternoon but with the westerly wind gusting to around 25 MPH, wind chills feel like it’s near or a little below zero throughout the day. Skies will be clear to partly cloudy tonight with lows near or a little below zero north and single numbers to near 10° as you get closer to the coast.

Partly Cloudy, Breezy & Cold the Next Few Days

Chris Ewing

Updated 10 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The combination of a strong storm located over eastern Hudson Bay and a large ridge of high pressure moving east across the central U.S. brought a gusty wind to Maine today. The gusty wind helped usher a much colder airmass into New England as the day progressed and the cold air will continue to pour into our region tomorrow as the brisk breeze continues. High temps Wednesday will range from the high single numbers north to the teens to near 20 south. Once again temps Thursday will be on the cold side with highs ranging from the upper single numbers north to the low 20s along the coastline.

Windy & Colder Today, No Storms Thru Friday

Todd Simcox

Updated 10 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

The storm that brought us the wet, windy and mild weather yesterday continues to move away to our north. Moisture wrapping around the departing storm will provide us with some cloudiness today. There will be some sunshine mixed in too so look for variably cloudy skies throughout the day. With low pressure to our north and high pressure to our south, the pressure gradient over the area will be fairly tight resulting in gusty westerly winds today. Temperatures are going to be cold with highs in the single numbers to around 10° north and teens to near 20° elsewhere. Winds are going to gust to 30-40 MPH at times today giving us wind chills near or below zero throughout the day. Some clouds will linger over the area tonight with lows dropping to a couple degrees either side of zero for nighttime lows.

Flash Freeze Tonight, Partly Sunny, Blustery & Cold Tuesday

Chris Ewing

Updated 10 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The strong storm system that moved up to the west of New England today helped pull a very mild airmass into our region on a strong and gusty southerly breeze. A west to northwest breeze behind the storms trailing cold front has begun to usher a fresh batch of arctic air back into Maine  and any leftover standing water will be freezing up solid . Any leftover showers this evening will change to snow, but most of the storms precipitation has already ended and only a few flurries will likely fall as we progress through the night. By daybreak tomorrow the temp will range from near zero over the western Maine mountains to the mid teens along the immediate coastline. Walkways and roadways may become quite slick as the temps plunge tonight.

Wet, Windy & Mild Today, Much Colder Tuesday

Todd Simcox

Updated 10 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Strong low pressure will pass well west of the area today pushing a cold front through the area later today and early tonight. Strong south/southeasterly winds ahead of the approaching cold front will usher a mild airmass into the region for today. Winds will be gusty today with gusts to 30-40 MPH possible over inland locations and 50-60 along the coast so scattered power outages are a possibility today. With all the rain and melting that will occur, there will be a lot of water on the roadways. Some storm drains are clogged with snow and ice so the water has nowhere to go which will result in some street flooding in spots. The cold front is forecast to cross the state this afternoon and evening. As it does so, colder air will quickly move back into the region behind the front which will cause the rain to change to mix and snow from west to east before coming to an end later tonight. We could see a coating to 1” of accumulation over far western and northwestern areas otherwise accumulations are not expected with the changeover. With the colder air coming back into the region, temperatures tonight will drop back to the mid-single numbers to mid-teens for nighttime lows. All the water from today will then refreeze and we’ll likely have to deal with icy roads during the night tonight and for tomorrow morning as well.

Mixed Precip Tonight and Tomorrow Will Make Roads Slick

Jessica Conley

Updated 10 months ago

We’ll see increasing clouds and a mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow developing overnight as a low pressure system approaches the area. It’ll stay primarily as a freezing rain event overnight with ice accretion (accumulation) possibly up to a quarter of an inch in inland locations. This could make driving conditions slick throughout the overnight hours and into the morning commute. The coast will change over to all rain first in the morning hours of Monday, with everyone else changing over from south to north. Highs Monday will be able to reach into the 40s as the low passes to our west. Once the low moves to our north and east we’ll see much colder air behind the cold front which will move through in the late afternoon or early evening. We could see a few snow showers by Monday night. Overnight lows will plummet about 40 degrees in most spots.

Snow Moves Out This Morning, Milder Temps This Weekend

Todd Simcox

Updated 10 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Lingering light snow, mainly over Downeast areas, will continue to wind down early this afternoon followed by clearing skies as high pressure builds into the region. Another bitterly cold day today with highs only topping off a couple degrees either side of zero. With high pressure building in and low pressure moving out, the pressure gradient between the two will be fairly tight over Maine resulting in a gusty north/northwest wind today. Winds are expected to range from 10-20 MPH with gusts reaching 25-30 MPH which will produce wind chills between -15° to -35° throughout the day. Skies will start clear tonight followed by increasing clouds late as a warm front approaches from the west. Temperatures will be well below zero again tonight with lows ranging from the mid-20s below zero north to the single numbers below zero along the coast.

Blustery & Frigid Tonight & Friday, with Snow South

Chris Ewing

Updated 10 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The combination of strong arctic high pressure over southern Quebec and an intensifying storm off the Mid-Atlantic coastline will bring a strong and gusty wind to our area tonight and Friday. The gusty wind will combine with bitterly cold temps to produce dangerous wind chill values tonight and tomorrow morning of between -25 and -45. The high to the north will keep northern parts of Maine dry tonight and Friday, while the storm off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline will bring snow to Maine from about the Bangor region on south. Snowfall from Augusta to Bangor and over to Calais will likely range from 1 – 4” tonight and tomorrow morning, with areas further north receiving 1” or less. The Downeast Coastline will likely pick up between 2 to 5”, with the Mid-Coast of Maine picking up between 5 to 9”. The Portland region on south through Kittery will likely see between 8 and 12” accumulate by the time the snow tapers off tomorrow. Low temps tonight will range from -25 up north to about -5 along the coastline.
