From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A ridge of high pressure currently located just north of the Great Lakes Region will begin to build into the Northeast today and then control the conditions in our area right through the holiday weekend. There will be a storm riding along a front stalled south of New England Friday, but at this time it appears the storms precipitation will remain well south of the Pine Tree State, as we see partly to mostly sunny skies and seasonably mild temps right though the 4th of July. There will be a couple of weak disturbances aloft along with a moisture starved cold front sliding across Northern New England later Saturday evening into Sunday so a few widely scattered showers or storms might pop-up in some locals, but widespread showers seem unlikely. Afternoon high temperatures tomorrow through Sunday will generally range from the mid 70s to low 80s in our region, with nighttime lows running in the 50s.

A new bubble of high pressure will slide into the Northeast later Sunday and bring partly to mostly sunny skies to Maine as we head back to work Monday. The high will likely continue to bring fair and mild conditions to our area Tuesday, with high temps both Monday and Tuesday running in the mid 70s to low 80s. The combination of an upper level trough and a cold front sliding east towards New England will bring the risk of showers back to Maine later Wednesday or Thursday.

 

Thursday: Mixed sun and clouds and breezy, with high temps in the mid 70s to very low 80s.

 

Friday: Partly to mostly sunny, with high temps in the mid 70s to low 80s.

 

July 4th: Partly sunny, with high temps in the mid 70s to low 80s.

 

Sunday: Partly sunny, with isolated showers possible and high temps in the mid 70s to very low 80s.

 

Monday: More sun than clouds, with high temps in the upper 70s to mid 80s.
