A Great Stretch of Weather Ahead

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


The gusty northwest breeze that developed behind the cold that moved offshore earlier today will slowly die off this evening. A cooler airmass will continue to spill into New England tonight behind the front and low temps across Maine will dip into the mid 30s north and upper 30s to low 40s elsewhere. High pressure will bring partly to mostly sunny skies to our area tomorrow, with an approaching weak and moisture starved cold front bringing a few clouds to mostly northern parts of the state tomorrow. High temps Tuesday will range from the upper 50s north to the mid 60s south.

High pressure will build across the Northeast behind the cold front beginning tomorrow evening and under clear skies and a light wind the temps will dip into the 30s to near 40 by Wednesday morning. The ridge of high pressure will bring our region a mostly sunny day Wednesday with high temps running in the 60s which is seasonable for the later part of September.

A surface trough and upper level disturbance will develop off the Southeastern US Coastline over the next few days and it will likely try to drift north along the East Coast later in the week. At this point in time it appears the trough along with its clouds and showers will remain well south of Maine later this week as the ridge of high pressure over the Northeast continues to control the conditions across the Pine Tree State. Temps late this workweek and over the weekend will continue to warm across Maine as the large high settles just to southeast and a west to southwest breeze pulls unseasonably mild air into the Northeast. High temps Thursday will likely climb into the mid 60s to low 70s, with even warmer readings likely Friday and Saturday. Sky conditions Thursday through Saturday will likely range from partly to mostly sunny, with no rainfall in the forecast right through next weekend.


Tonight: Partly to mostly clear, with a diminishing wind and low temps in the mid 30s to low 40s.


Tuesday: Partly to mostly sunny, breezy and slightly cooler, with high temps in the upper 50s to mid 60s.


Wednesday: Mostly sunny, with high temps in the 60s.


Thursday: Mostly sunny, with high temps in the mid 60s to low 70s.


Friday: Mostly sunny, with high temps in the upper 60s to mid 70s.


Saturday: Mostly sunny, with high temps in the upper 60s to mid 70s.
