From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

The northwest breeze that developed on the backside of the arctic cold front that crossed our area earlier today caused temperatures to slowly fall during the daylight hours. Temperatures will turn even colder tonight as arctic air continues to spill into New England on a northwest breeze and by tomorrow morning the lows across our region will range from -10 to plus 4, with the mildest temps being found along the coastline. High pressure approaching the Northeast from the west will bring mostly sunny skies to Maine tomorrow, but temps will remain much colder than normal as highs hold in the mid teens to low 20s all across eastern and central Maine.

The weekend will remain somewhat colder than normal throughout New England, with just the chance of a few snow showers popping up in our region both days as a couple of disturbances aloft sweep south out of Canada and then cross Northern New England. A weak storm system might bring some light snow to parts of Maine Sunday night and early Monday. The weather pattern early next week will likely remain rather tranquil across Maine, with temperatures very slowly warming back up to more seasonable levels. Temperatures may climb to above normal levels for a change during the middle of next week as high pressure slips offshore and a southwest breeze develops throughout the Northeast. High temperatures in our area Wednesday will likely climb into the 40s, with even a few spots possibly reaching 50 degrees.

 

Tonight: Becoming partly to mostly clear, with a diminishing northwest breeze late and low temps in the range of -10 to +4.

 

Friday: Mostly sunny, with a northwest breeze at 5 to 10 mph and cold, with high temps in the mid teens to low 20s.

 

Saturday: Variably cloudy, a west breeze at 6 to 12 mph, with scattered snow showers likely north and high temps in the low 20s to low 30s from north to south.

 

Sunday: Partly to mostly cloudy, with possible scattered snow showers, with high temps in the mid 20s to mid 30s.

 

Monday: Possible morning snow showers then partly cloudy, with high temps in the upper 20s and 30s.

 

Tuesday: Partly to mostly sunny and milder, with high temps in the mid 30s to low 40s.

 

Wednesday: Partly sunny and milder, with high temps in the 40s.
