From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:
Skies turned partly sunny today as the storm and cold front that brought the showers and thunderstorms to Maine Sunday and Monday continued to move north and east of New England. Skies tonight will be partly to mostly clear as drier air continues to spill into our region and by dawn temps will be running several degrees below normal as temps range from the upper 40s to mid 50s. Over the next few days a storm in the upper levels of the atmosphere will remain parked just to the north of the Great Lakes Region and that will likely allow a few hit and miss showers and storms to dot our region each of the next few afternoons, otherwise the skies will run partly sunny Wednesday and Thursday. Across Maine the best shot of seeing the brief pop-up showers and storms the next couple of days will be across the north and mountains. Temps the next few days will range from low 70s to very low 80s, which is just a bit below normal.
. As we start the month of August a weak ridge of high pressure will develop over New England and likely bring partly sunny skies to Maine Friday, with near normal temps as highs climb into the upper 70s to low 80s. A storm riding up along a stalled front just to the east of New England might bring more numerous showers to mostly eastern parts of New England this weekend, but the storm’s showers may also stay just offshore, we will keep you posted as we get closer to the weekend.
Tonight: Partly to mostly clear, with low temps in the upper 40s to mid 50s.
Wednesday: Partly cloudy, with widely scattered showers possible and high temps in the mid 70s to low 80s.
Thursday: Partly sunny, with hit and miss showers and storms likely and high temps in the mid 70s to low 80s.
Friday: Partly sunny, with widely scattered showers possible and high temps in the mid 70s to low 80s.
Saturday: More clouds than sun, with scattered showers and storms likely and high temps in the mid 70s to low 80s.
Sunday: Variably cloudy, few scattered showers possible and high temps in the mid 70s to low 80s.
