From the TV 5 Forecast Center:
Low pressure will pass to our north today, dragging a cold front across the state as the day progresses. Milder air moving ahead of the front will allow temperatures to climb into the 40s to near 50° for highs today. We’ll start the day pretty quiet with lots of clouds around. There will be some drier air moving into the mid-levels of the atmosphere this morning which may allow for some breaks of sunshine in spots this morning otherwise expect the clouds to prevail. A second area of low pressure is forecast to ride along the cold front this afternoon into tonight, bringing us a period of rain, the steadiest of which will be from Greenville to Millinocket and points southward. As temperatures start to cool tonight, the rain will change to mix then snow over northern areas and rain to mix elsewhere with a slushy coating to an inch or two possible in spots especially away from the coast.
Low pressure will move away from the area Friday. We’ll start the day under clouds and some lingering snow or mixed rain/snow showers. As the day wears on, any lingering showers will come to an end and drier air moving in behind the departing storm will allow skies to brighten during the afternoon. Temperatures will be in the upper 30s to low 40s for highs. High pressure builds in this weekend and gives us sunshine both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday’s highs will be chilly with temperatures in the upper 20s to mid-30s and Sunday will feature highs mainly in the 30s. Snow, mix and rain possible Monday.
Today: mostly cloudy with some breaks of sun possible this morning. Slight chance of a shower this morning then steadier rain developing this afternoon. Afternoon highs between 42°-50°. Southwest wind around 10 MPH.
