From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

The ridge of high pressure currently located just north of the Great Lakes Region that brought the partly sunny and pleasant weather to Maine today will continue to control the conditions across our region the next few days. The high will bring partly to mostly sunny skies to Maine both tomorrow and the holiday Saturday as it continues to slowly build east towards New England. Under mostly clear skies and a light wind tonight the temps will run several degrees below normal as lows dip into the upper 40s to lower 50s. Temps tomorrow and Saturday will range from the mid 70s to low 80s all across our area which is normal for early July.

A weak 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. 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.

 

Tonight: Mostly clear, with a light wind and low temps in the upper 40s to mid 50s.

 

Friday: Partly to mostly sunny, with high temps in the mid 70s to low 80s.

 

Saturday: Partly sunny, with high temps in the mid 70s to low 80s.

 

Sunday: Partly sunny, with isolated showers possible and high temps in the mid 70s to very low 80s.

 

Monday: More sun than clouds, with high temps in the upper 70s to mid 80s.

 

Tuesday: Partly sunny and more humid, with high temps in the upper 70s to mid 80s.
