From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

The storm system that has been producing the on and off rain and a blustery wind across much of Maine is currently centered a little southeast of Cape Cod. The storm will continue to bring rain and blustery conditions to our region tonight as it slowly moves northeast. At times tonight the rain will be very light but at other times heavier showers will rotate into our region from the Gulf of Maine. Northern parts of Maine will finally start to pick up some of the steadier and heavier rain later tonight as the storm continues to drift north just to the east of New England. Temps tonight will hold in the 40s, but the gusty northeast to north wind will make it feel cooler than it actually is.
Conditions will slowly improve tomorrow as the storm lifts up towards Southern Nova Scotia later in the day. The steadiest rain tomorrow will be found across northern parts of Maine, with somewhat lighter showers falling from the Bangor Region on south. Far southern Maine may see a few late day breaks show up in the cloud cover as the atmosphere continues to dry out on a developing northwest breeze as the storm lifts off to our northeast.
A weak ridge of high pressure will pass by to our south Saturday which should allow a little partial sunshine to develop across southern and central Maine, with still a few showers possible across the far north and mountains. An upper low along with a new cold front riding southeast out of central Canada will likely bring another round of scattered showers to our region Sunday morning. High pressure approaching New England from the west will bring brighter conditions to Maine both Monday and Tuesday.

Tonight: Breezy, with periods of showers, heavy at times and low temps in the low to mid 40s.

Friday: Mostly cloudy and breezy, with steady rain north but lighter showers south tapering off, with high temps in the upper 40s to mid 50s.

Saturday: Becoming partly cloudy, with a few scattered showers possible across the far north and mountains, with high temps in the 50s.

Sunday: Breezy and mostly cloudy, with scattered showers and high temps in the upper 40s to mid 50s.

Monday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the upper 40s to mid 50s.

Tuesday: More sun than clouds, with high temps in the mid 50s to low 60s.
