Variably Cloudy & Becoming More Humid Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The ridge of high pressure that brought the sunny and pleasant weather to Maine today will slowly drift off to the southeast of New England today. A southwest breeze on the backside of the high will help gradually pull more humid air into our region as we move through today. The combination of the more humid airmass and a slowly approaching cold front from the north will cause skies to range from partly to mostly cloudy today. Northern parts of Maine will likely see some scattered showers and storms develop later today due to the approaching front, but the rest of the state won’t see much in the way of showers and thundershowers till later tonight or Wednesday. High temps today will range from near 70 along the coast and over the far north to the mid 70s to low 80s elsewhere across Maine.

Partly Sunny, Breezy & Cooler Friday

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The combination of strong high pressure centered near Hudson Bay and a storm system located near southern Newfoundland combined to bring a gusty northwest breeze to Maine today. The gusty wind helped pull a much less humid airmass into New England today. The overall weather pattern will change very little over the next several days as the high remains to our northwest and the storm spins over Newfoundland.

Mostly Sunny & Seasonable Stretch of Weather

Jessica Conley

Updated 1 month ago

 

It’ll be a pretty easy rest of the week and weekend in the weather office. Things look like they’ll stay mostly sunny and seasonable as far as temps go. Today a ridge of high pressure starts to move in. It’ll keep us with mainly clear and sunny skies. Another cold front crosses the state tonight. That’ll cool high temps down for tomorrow by about five to ten degrees. By Friday night a few isolated showers are possible in far northern and eastern areas but I even hesitate to mention them because I’m thinking about 98 percent of us will stay totally dry.
