From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A cold front will cross through Maine causing rain to taper off from southwest to northeast across the state this morning. Drier air will begin to filter back into Maine later tomorrow as the front slides to our east allowing some breaks of sunshine to develop this afternoon. Temperatures will remain mild with highs in the 60s to near 70°. A few hit and miss light showers may develop across Maine as a secondary cold front slips through our region Saturday, with the bulk of the showers falling across the western and northern Maine. Temps ahead of the cold front Saturday will still run above normal, but noticeably cooler air will slide into Maine on Sunday as the secondary cold front slips offshore. The chilly conditions will likely continue Monday and Tuesday as high pressure builds into New England from southern Canada.

Fair, Breezy & Cooler the Next Few Days

Chris Ewing

Updated 2 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A west/southwest breeze will continue today which will allow cooler air to continue to spill into all of New England for the rest of the workweek. High temps today through Saturday will likely hold in the 50s to near 60 despite partly sunny skies each day. There will be a storm riding northeast from the Tennessee River Valley Friday and moving off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline early Saturday. It appears the storms precipitation shield will remain south of our region early Saturday, but a storm track a little north of current projections would bring the chance of some showers to much of our region as we begin the holiday weekend, with southern and coastal Maine having the best shot of seeing the wet weather.
