From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY EVERYONE!!!!!
A system moving off the coast of Mass came just a bit closer giving it more in the way of cloud cover today, a few showers are possible throughout the evening but should stay mostly dry for the fireworks! Temps will be in the 50s so grab the coat as you are heading out tonight.
A disturbance aloft along with a moisture starved cold front sliding across Northern New England later Saturday evening into Sunday may kick off a few widely scattered showers or storms in Maine, but widespread showers seem unlikely. Once again temperatures Sunday will generally range from the mid 70s to low 80s in our region.
A new bubble of high pressure will slide into the Northeast later Sunday and bring partly to mostly sunny skies to Maine as we head back to work Monday. The high will likely continue to bring fair skies and warming temps to our area Tuesday, with high temps both Monday and Tuesday running in the upper 70s to mid 80s. A southwest breeze early in the workweek will allow a more humid airmass to build into New England as dew points begin to climb into the stickier 60s. The combination of an upper level trough and a cold front sliding east towards New England will bring the risk of showers back to Maine later Wednesday or Thursday.
4th of July night: Partly to mostly cloudy, with a few widely scattered showers and thundershowers possible, with low temps in the 50s to near 60. Winds 5-10 out of the South
Sunday: Partly sunny, with a few hit and miss showers and thundershowers possible and high temps in the mid 70s to very low 80s. Winds west 5-10.
Monday: More sun than clouds and becoming more humid, with high temps in the upper 70s to mid 80s.
Tuesday: Partly sunny and humid, with high temps in the upper 70s to mid 80s.
Wednesday: Variably cloudy and muggy, with scattered showers and thundershowers possible and high temps in the 70s to around 80.
Thursday : staying humid with a chance shower/storm. Temps mid 70s-low 80s
