Partly Sunny & Pleasant Friday

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


The cold front that brought the showers and thundershowers to Maine yesterday and earlier today continues to slowly move off to our east. A northwest breeze on the backside of the front helped pull a much less humid airmass into our region today and the comfortably dry air will remain across New England right into Saturday.  High pressure building into the Northeast will produce bright and pleasant weather all across New England tomorrow and Saturday. A weak disturbance aloft sliding east through Quebec may kick off a few stray showers across the far north and mountains tomorrow afternoon, but most of the time it will be partly to mostly sunny.

As the high slides off to the east of New England Sunday morning a storm system moving east through the Great Lakes Region will push a warm front towards Maine. The warm front will cause clouds to build across our region Sunday, with showers and thundershowers likely developing as the day moves along.  A storm in the upper levels of the atmosphere will stall across the Eastern U.S.  as we begin the workweek and that will lead to rather unsettled condition in our region Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. A southerly breeze aloft will allow humidity levels to remain rather high later Sunday through Wednesday and that along with the upper level trough will cause on and off showers to fall in our region for several days. The combination of mostly cloudy skies and occasional showers will hold temps a bit below normal Sunday through Tuesday.


Tonight: Partly to mostly clear and cooler, with low temps in the upper 40s to mid 50s.


Friday: Partly sunny, with widely scattered showers possible north and high temps in the mid 70s to low 80s.


Saturday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the upper 70s to low 80s.


Sunday: Partly to mostly cloudy and becoming more humid, with scattered showers and storms and high temps in the upper 70s to near 80.


Monday: More clouds than sun and humid, with scattered showers likely and high temps in the 70s to near 80.


Tuesday: Variably cloudy, scattered showers likely and high temps in the 70s to near 80.
