From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:


A bit of upper level energy sliding east through the Northeast brought variably cloudy skies and a few flurries to Maine Friday but otherwise the weather was quiet and cold as high temps across most our region held in the 20s.  The ridge of high pressure that brought the fair and cold conditions to our region Friday will continue to move east towards the Mid-Atlantic Coastline and bring another bright and cold day to Maine Saturday. High temps Saturday will range from the high teens across northernmost Maine to the 20s elsewhere across the state.

By Sunday, temperatures will moderate back into the 30s to low 40s as a southwest breeze develops on the backside of the departing ridge of high pressure off the Mid Atlantic coastline. A warm front sliding northeast through New England Saturday night and Sunday morning will bring a period of snow and rain showers to our region later Saturday night and Sunday morning. Much milder air will build into Maine Sunday as a southerly breeze develops behind the warm front as it lifts up into Quebec. High temps throughout Maine Sunday will range from the mid 30s north to the mid 40s south. Roads may briefly become slippery late Saturday night and Sunday morning before the warmer airmass works into our area.

An arctic cold from will likely slip south through New England Monday and after a mild start to the day the temperatures will begin to fall off, with much colder air arriving Monday night and continuing Tuesday. A period of light mixed precipitation may develop across Maine Wednesday as milder air tries to work back into Northern New England.


Tonight: Becoming partly to mostly clear, with a light wind and low temps in the mid single numbers to lower teens.


Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny and cold, with a light wind and high temps in the upper teens and 20s.


Saturday night: Becoming mostly cloudy, with a light wintry mix possible late and low temps in the teens to low 20s early then slowly rising late.


Sunday: Mostly cloudy and milder, with scattered morning snow and rain showers likely and high temps in the mid 30s to mid 40s from north to south.


Monday: Partly to mostly cloudy, with widely scattered rain and snow showers possible and high temps in the mid 30s to low 40s.


Tuesday: Bright, breezy and cold, with high temps in the mid teens to mid 20s from north to south.


Wednesday: Mostly cloudy, with light snow and rain possible and high temps in the 30s to low 40s.
