From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Clouds and scattered showers will be with us through the night tonight as warm front pushes towards the area. Some cooler air moving into northern areas may allow the showers to change to some light freezing rain for areas mainly north of Greenville and Millinocket where temperatures are expected to get down to the lower 30s. Otherwise temperatures will be in the mid to upper 30s for most spots so precipitation should be in the form of just plain rain showers for most. With mild temperatures and shower activity, we’ll see areas of fog developing, some of which may be dense so use caution on the roadways if you have travel plans during the night.

 

Clouds and scattered showers stick around into Saturday with highs again warming into the mid-40s to low 50s. Showers will become a steady rain Saturday night into early Sunday morning as low pressure pulls a cold front through the state. Rainfall totals are expected to be between .25″ to .5″ on average. The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for much of the state to account for the coming rainfall combined with melting snow which could result in ice jams on some of the area rivers and streams. Also we could see a lot of ponding on the roadways in poor drainage areas too so keep that in mind if you have any travel plans. Lingering rain and snow showers will be possible Sunday morning as the storm pulls away otherwise expect drier and cooler weather Sunday with a gusty westerly wind. Temperatures on Sunday will be in the 30s to low 40s. Monday looks good with a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the mid-30s to mid-40s. We’ll be watching an approaching storm for Tuesday which could bring us some afternoon rain and snow followed by another system bringing us snow, mix and rain Wednesday.

 

 

Tonight: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Showers will turn to some light freezing rain mainly for areas north of Greenville and Millinocket. Areas of fog. Lows in the 30s to near 40°. Light and variable wind.

 

 

Saturday: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Steadier, heavier rain at night. Highs between 44°-53°. Light winds will become south/southeast 5-10 MPH.
