From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

As the storm system that brought all the rain and blustery conditions to our region continues to move northeast through the Maritimes of Canada the conditions across Maine will slowly dry out tonight. Weak high pressure will bring partial sunshine to Maine Saturday as it slips east across Southern New England. As the high slips off to our southeast later Saturday the wind across New England will turn into the southwest and temperatures throughout Maine during the afternoon hours will climb back up into the upper 40s north and low to mid 50s elsewhere.

An energetic but somewhat moisture starved upper low along with its associated cold front will move southeast out of central Canada Saturday evening and cross through Maine later at night and early Sunday morning. The upper trough and surface cold front will once again bring some scattered showers to our region late Saturday night and part of Sunday. A lack of moisture with the front will limit the amount of showers that develop across Maine as it moves across the state, with the bulk of the showers falling over northern parts of our region. A gusty northwest breeze will develop behind the front later Sunday and a slightly cooler airmass will build into New England.

High pressure approaching New England from the west will bring fair weather to Maine both Monday and Tuesday. A northwest breeze on the eastside of the high Monday will keep temps running near normal for the later part of October. As the high slips off to our southeast Tuesday a milder southwest breeze will develop across our region and temps in some parts of Maine will likely reach up to the lower 60s. A storm crossing southern Canada will pull a cold front through New England either Wednesday night or Thursday, with another round of scattered showers followed by some rather chilly air for Halloween on through next weekend.
