From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:
Much colder air will be invading our region during the next several days after a prolonged period of well above normal temperatures. An arctic cold front will continue to slip off the New England Coastline tonight and a northwest breeze behind the front will be ushering a much colder airmass into our region which will allow temps to fall into the single number to mid teens south tonight, with sub-zero reading being found up north by daybreak tomorrow. Despite sunny skies tomorrow the high temps will hold in the teens to mid 20s around our area, with even colder conditions across the north and mountains.
A large dome of arctic high pressure will bring more fair and cold weather to Maine Wednesday as high temps hold in the teens to mid 20s despite a good deal of sunshine. A clipper type storm passing through southern Canada will bring more clouds to Maine Thursday. The storm’s warm and cold fronts will likely kick off some scattered flurries and snow showers in our area Thursday, but nothing more than a dusting is likely as the fronts cross New England.
Another ridge of arctic high pressure will build into the Northeast to bring generally fair and cold weather to Maine both Friday and Saturday. A storm system moving east through the Southern States later this week may bring some snow and or mixed precipitation to much of the Northeast later in the weekend or early next week. The exact track of the storm will determine how much (if any) and what type of precipitation we see around here later in the weekend or early next workweek.
Tonight: Mostly clear, with a northwest breeze under 10 mph and low temps in the single numbers to lower teens.
Tuesday: Mostly to partly sunny, with high temps in the teens to mid 20s from north to south.
Wednesday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the teens to mid 20s.
Thursday: Variably cloudy, with scattered flurries and snow showers likely and high temps in the mid 20s to low 30s.
Friday: Partly cloudy, with a few snow showers possible and high temps in the teens to mid 20s.
Saturday: Mostly to partly sunny, with high temps in the mid teens to mid 20s.
Sunday: Becoming cloudy, with possible snow and mixed precipitation developing and high temps in the 20s to low 30s.
