From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


High pressure currently working east from western Ontario will bring generally quiet and chilly conditions to Maine this weekend and Monday as well. A bit of moisture trapped in the low to mid levels of the atmosphere over the weekend along with a light onshore breeze will likely bring some patchy clouds and possibly a few flurries to parts of Maine this weekend, with the most likely time to see scattered flurries being Sunday. A light northerly breeze over the weekend will keep the temps rather chilly both weekend days, with highs holding in the 20s to around 30 and lows running in the single numbers north and teens south.

A weak storm drifting up the Eastern Seaboard will likely bring a bit of light rain or mixed precipitation to our area later Monday night and Tuesday. High temperatures Monday will range from the upper 20s north to the mid 30s south, with highs Tuesday ranging from the 30s to around 40.

A much stronger storm system aloft will develop over the middle of the country Tuesday and that will cause a powerful surface storm to form as the upper low heads east. The exact track of this new stronger storm will determine if we see rain, snow or a mixed bag of precipitation Christmas Eve and early Christmas day. At this point in time it looks like the storm may move up into Canada west of Maine and that would bring our region more of a rain and wind event later Wednesday into Christmas morning. Drier and cooler conditions will move into our area later Christmas day as the storm continues to lift off to the northwest of New England.



Saturday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the 20s to near 30.


Saturday night: Partly to mostly cloudy, with low temps in the teens to near 20.


Sunday: Variably cloudy, with a few scattered snow showers possible and high temps in the mid 20s to low 30s.


Monday: Mostly cloudy, with a bit of light snow and rain possible later in the day and high temps in the upper 20s to mid 30s.


Tuesday: Mostly cloudy, with light rain and snow possible and high temps in the 30s to around 40.


Christmas Eve. Increasing rain and wind and unseasonably mild, with high temps in the upper 30s to mid 40s.
