From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure will continue to slowly drift northeastward towards Nova Scotia this afternoon. The steadier rain will continue falling over northern Maine this afternoon while the rest of the state sees a few scattered showers and/or some patchy drizzle. Temperatures will top off in the mid-40s to low 50s. Showers will continue to taper off tonight as the storm pulls away from the area. Drier air moving in late will allow skies to partially clear after midnight. Temperatures will drop back to the mid and upper 30s for lows in most locales.

 

A ridge of high pressure is forecast to move into the state Saturday bringing us some drier weather to start the weekend. Saturday will feature a mix of sun and clouds with highs mainly in the 50s. Low pressure is forecast to cross the state on Sunday bringing us mostly cloudy skies and the chance for some scattered showers. Drier weather will return on Monday with a good deal of sunshine and highs in the 50s to near 60°.
