From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

The combination of energy aloft swinging east into New England and a storm lifting north just east of the Gulf of Maine late today will keep skies mostly cloudy in our region for the first half of the weekend. An inverted trough associated with the storm offshore may bring some snow showers to parts of Maine today, with the best shot of seeing any steady snow being found this morning over southwestern parts of the state. Once again an active northerly breeze along with mostly cloudy skies will keep temps running well below normal as high temps today range from the upper 20s over the mountains to the 30s elsewhere.  Any scattered snow showers will come to an end and skies will begin to clear out tonight as the storm offshore moves up towards Eastern Nova Scotia.

Sunday will turn out to be the brighter of the two weekend days as high pressure moves into the Northeast. The high will bring mostly sunny skies and a lighter breeze to our region Sunday, but temps will still run several degrees below normal. A trough of low pressure aloft will move into the northeast later Monday and bring an increased risk of rain and snow showers to our region. High pressure will bring fair weather to New England Tuesday. There are some subtle signs that a ridge of high pressure late next week may develop southeast of New England, which would allow the temps across Maine to briefly warm into the 50s by Thursday or Friday.



Today: Mostly cloudy, with scattered snow showers possible, blustery and chilly, with high temps in the upper 20s to mid 30s.


Tonight: Gradual clearing, with low temps in the mid teens to mid 20s.


Sunday: More sun than clouds, with high temps in the 30s to very near 40.


Monday: Becoming mostly cloudy, with scattered rain and snow showers and high temps in the mid 30s to low 40s.


Tuesday: Mixed sun and clouds, with high temps in the upper 30s to mid 40s.


Wednesday: Partly cloudy, with high temps in the low to mid 40s.
