From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

Low pressure at the surface and in the upper levels of the atmosphere will be spinning just east of Maine today. A disturbance wrapping around the low will give us a chance for more scattered showers especially over eastern parts of the state. Temperatures will again start near 40° during the morning then climb into the 50s for highs during the afternoon. We’ll continue to see clouds and scattered showers through the overnight tonight with lows around 40°.

Wednesday looks a little bit better as the storm system slowly moves further off to our east. We’ll still see plenty of clouds around but there will be a better chance for some breaks of sunshine. A few showers will be possible but those chances should be a bit lesser than previous days. Temperatures will be in the 50s to near 60° Wednesday afternoon. Thursday will be similar with plenty of clouds and some breaks of sunshine mixed in. We could still see a few showers around the state Thursday but it looks like they will be widely scattered. Temperatures will climb into the mid-50s to around 60° for highs Thursday afternoon. It looks like we’ll finally get into some drier and brighter weather by Friday with varying amounts of clouds and sun and highs in the 50s. Saturday looks like a good start to the weekend as a storm system stays to our south, we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the mid-50s to around 60°.

Today: mostly cloudy and breezy with scattered showers especially over eastern parts of the state. Highs between 49°-59°. North/northwest wind 15-25 MPH.
