From the TV 5 Forecast Center:
Dry weather returns today as high pressure builds into the region. We’ll see partly to mostly sunny skies across the state with temperatures in the upper 40s to mid-50s for highs. Skies will be clear to partly cloudy tonight with lows dropping back to the mid-20s to near 30° north, low to mid-30s elsewhere.
Friday will feature a mix of sun and clouds. Cooler air will move in for Friday too with highs only in the mid-40s to low 50s. Colder air will continue to filter into the region this weekend. A weak area of low pressure offshore moving toward Nova Scotia on Saturday will give us a chance for some rain showers Saturday afternoon. The best chance for showers looks to be over areas mainly south of a line from Greenville to Houlton. Temperatures will top off in the 40s for highs Saturday afternoon. Rain showers are expected to turn to snow and mixed precipitation Saturday night with a few inches of snowfall possible mainly over areas away from the coastline.
We are keeping a close eye on the forecast for Saturday night and Sunday as strong low pressure is forecast to move up the east coast towards New England. The question is, what track will this storm take? The latest data is in better agreement in taking the storm on a more easterly track over central and eastern Nova Scotia which would keep the bulk of the storm’s precipitation east of Maine and having minimal impact on our area. The western edge of the storm’s precipitation will graze eastern parts of the state with some mix and/or rain otherwise at this point, it looks like the rest of the state should miss out on the storm. It’s still early so we’ll continue to watch the latest data and fine tune the exact track as we get closer.
Today: partly to mostly sunny and a bit cooler with highs between 48°-56°. Northwest wind 5-10 MPH.
Tonight: clear to partly cloudy. Lows between 26°-36°. Light north/northwest wind.
Friday: mix of sun and clouds. Highs between 45°-52°. Northeast wind 5-10 MPH.
Saturday: partly to mostly cloudy with afternoon rain showers possible mainly south of a line from Greenville to Houlton. Rain showers will change to mix and snow at night. Cool with highs in the 40s.
Sunday: variably cloudy. Mix & rain possible Downeast. Chilly with highs in the mid-30s to low 40s.
Monday: partly to mostly sunny. Highs in the upper 30s to mid-40s.
