From the TV 5 Forecast Center:
As of noontime, rain has tapered to scattered showers over central and western parts of the state will rain continues to fall steadily over northern and eastern Maine. The rain will continue to taper to scattered showers from west to east across the state by mid-afternoon or so. Despite a gray and gloomy afternoon, temperatures will top off in the 50s for highs (average temperatures for this time of year should be in the mid-30s to low 40s from north to south). Lingering showers will taper off this evening followed by partial clearing after midnight as a cold front crosses the state. With the rainfall from today and clearing skies tonight, we’ll likely see fog developing in many spots during the nighttime hours so be careful if you have any travel plans tonight or early Tuesday morning. Lows will remain mild tonight with temperatures bottoming out in the mid-40s to around 50°.


Tuesday will be a drier, brighter and mild day. We’ll see partly sunny skies with highs in the mid-40s to low to mid-50s from north to south across the state. All eyes will then turn to the potential storm for midweek. Wednesday will start out dry with increasing clouds during the morning hours. It looks like precipitation will develop later in the day, starting as snow for inland areas and rain and/or mix closer to the coastline. The exact storm track is still uncertain at this point with some models tracking the storm well south and east of New England will another model keeps the storm closer to the New England coastline. A track further offshore would mean lower amounts of precipitation and a colder forecast resulting in precipitation falling mainly as snow with some mix along the coast. A track closer to the coast would mean higher precipitation amounts with snow for inland areas and mix/rain along the coast. If you have travel plans for Wednesday or Thursday, you’ll want to stay tuned to the forecast. The storm will pull away from the area during Thanksgiving Day allowing precipitation to come to an end by early afternoon or so. We may see a few snow showers on Friday mainly during the morning as an upper level disturbance crosses the state. Temperatures will be very chilly Friday with highs only in the mid-20s to low 30s.



Rest of Today: periods of rain tapering to showers this afternoon. Breezy and mild. Highs between 50°-58°. Southeast wind 10-25 MPH with gusts to 30-40 MPH possible.


Tonight: lingering showers possible early then partial clearing late. Areas of fog. Mild with lows between 45°-51°. South/southwest wind around 10 MPH.


Tuesday: partly sunny and still mild with highs between 47°-57°. Southwest wind around 10 MPH.


Wednesday: increasing clouds. Snow and rain possible later in the day. Colder with highs in the mid-30s to low 40s.


Thursday: morning rain/snow showers then mostly cloudy. Highs in the 30s to near 40°.


Friday: mostly cloudy with scattered snow showers during the morning. Brightening skies during the afternoon. Cold with highs in the mid-20s to low 30s.
