From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

*** FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 3PM TODAY FOR NORTHERN AND EASTERN MAINE. ***

 

Strong high pressure will build into the area today giving us lots of sunshine. Temperatures will warm into the 40s this afternoon. Winds will be light and variable today so wind chills won’t be a factor in the forecast and therefore the day will feel much better than yesterday. Skies will remain clear as we head into the night tonight and we’ll see another cold night with light winds and temperatures dropping to the 20s for most locales.

 

High pressure will move east of the area Friday, still providing us with pleasant spring weather. We’ll see lots of sunshine to start the day followed by a few clouds during the afternoon as a weak cold front approaches from the west. Temperatures will be a bit milder Friday with afternoon highs reaching the mid-40s to low 50s. A weak disturbance is forecast to move into the area on Saturday giving us more clouds and the chance for a few showers. With clouds and the chance of showers Saturday, temperatures will be near or a bit below average with highs forecast to reach the mid-40s to low 50s. The disturbance will move away from the state Saturday night and skies will clear out as high pressure builds in from north and west. High pressure will provide us with a beautiful day for Easter Sunday with sunshine and highs near or a little above 50°. Quiet weather will continue through much of next week with no big storms in sight.

 

 

Rest of Today: sunny and cool. Highs between 41°-48°. Light and variable wind.

 

Tonight: clear and cold. Lows between 19°-27°. Light and variable wind.

 

Friday: mostly sunny during the morning then becoming partly sunny during the afternoon. Seasonable with highs between 46°-53°. Light winds will become southeast around 10 MPH.

 

Saturday: mostly cloudy. A few showers possible. Highs between 44°-54°.

 

Easter Sunday: sunny and pleasant. Highs between in the upper 40s to low 50s.

 

Monday: mostly cloudy during the morning then brightening skies during the afternoon. Highs in the 50s.
