From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:
Somewhat drier air will gradually build into the Northeast today as the surface low continues to lift up into southeastern Canada. We will likely see more in the way of sunshine today and Wednesday as the surface storm continues to ride off to our northeast, but a storm in the upper levels of the atmosphere will likely remain parked near the Great Lakes Region and that will likely allow a few hit and miss showers and storms to dot our region during the middle of the workweek. A bit more sun the next few afternoons will allow the temps today and Wednesday to range from the mid 70s to low 80s.
A pool of cool air aloft swinging across the Northeast will likely trigger a few more scattered showers and thunderstorms in our region Thursday otherwise it will turn out to be another partly sunny day. As we start the month of August a weak ridge of high pressure will develop over New England and likely bring partly sunny skies to Maine Friday, with near normal temps as highs climb into the upper 70s to low 80s. A storm riding up along a stalled front just to the east of New England might bring some showers to parts of Eastern Maine this weekend, but the storm’s showers may also stay just offshore, we will keep you posted as we get closer to the weekend.
Today: Partly sunny, with widely scattered showers possible and high temps in the 70s to near 80.
Wednesday: Partly cloudy, with widely scattered showers possible and high temps in the mid 70s to low 80s.
Thursday: Partly sunny, with hit and miss showers and storms likely and high temps in the mid 70s to low 80s.
Friday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the upper 70s to low 80s.
Saturday: Variably cloudy, with possible scattered showers and storms and high temps in the mid 70s to low 80s.
