From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

High pressure will build east across Ontario today giving us a sunny day with a brisk northwest breeze. The northwest breeze will hold temps to the upper 20s to mid 30s for highs this afternoon which is almost fifteen degrees below normal for the beginning of April.

A warm front approaching New England from the west Thursday will likely kick off some snow and rain showers later in the afternoon and at night, but once the front slides north of Maine milder air will build into Maine for the end of the workweek Friday. High temperatures Thursday will likely reach the upper 30s north to low 40s south, with high temps Friday likely reaching the upper 40s to mid 50s from north to south. If we see enough sunshine Friday parts of Southern Maine might reach 60 degrees. A cold front will then cross Maine Friday night. The front will likely stall just south of our region while at the same time a storm develops along the front and brings a period of rain and snow to Maine as we begin the weekend. The exact track of the storm will determine whether we see primarily rain or snow in our area. At this point in time it appears southern and coastal Maine will receive mainly a cold rain, with central and northern parts of the state seeing more of a snow and mix type storm. Once the storm moves off to our northeast a brisk northwest breeze will develop across New England and another unseasonably cold airmass will filter into the Pine Tree State for Easter Sunday.

Today: Mostly sunny, blustery and unseasonably cold, with high temps in the upper 20s to mid 30s. Northwest wind 10-18 MPH with gusts to 25 MPH possible.

Thursday: Partly to mostly cloudy, with a period of snow and rain showers possibly developing later in the day and high temps in the upper 30s to low 40s.

Friday: Variably cloudy, with possible scattered rain showers and milder, with high temps in the upper 40s to mid 50s.

Saturday: Blustery, with rain and snow likely, with high temps in the 30s to low 40s.

Sunday: Mixed clouds and sun, blustery and chilly, with mountain snow showers and high temps in the upper 20s to low 30s north and 30s to near 40 south.

Monday: Partly cloudy and chilly, with high temps in the 30s to low 40s.
