From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

Low pressure at the surface and in the upper levels of the atmosphere sits just east f Nova Scotia this morning and is forecast to drift back to the west/southwest towards Maine today. This will keep us under the clouds today and give us a good chance for scattered showers today. Showers will be on the light side with most locales seeing no more than .1” of rainfall during the day. Temperatures won’t move much with most spots seeing temps around 40° to start the day and high temperatures forecast to climb to near or a little above 50° this afternoon. We’ll see a few showers during the night tonight with lows near 40°.

On Tuesday, low pressure at the surface and in the upper levels of the atmosphere will be spinning just east of Maine. A disturbance wrapping around the low will give us a chance for a few showers especially over northern and eastern parts of the state with lesser chances over southern and western areas. Temperatures will again start near 40° during the morning then climb into the 50s for highs during the afternoon. Wednesday looks a little bit better as the storm system slowly moves further off to our east. We’ll still see plenty of clouds around but there will be a better chance for some breaks of sunshine. A few showers will be possible but those chances should be a bit lesser than previous days. Temperatures will be in the 50s to near 60° Wednesday afternoon. Thursday looks like a decent day with a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the mid-50s to low 60s. Friday looks dry at this point with a storm system approaching from the south later in the day but being forced off to our south by high pressure located to our north. If this remains on track then we’ll see a decent day Friday and dry weather into the upcoming weekend.

Today: mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Highs between 49°-56°. North/northwest wind 10-18 MPH.

Tonight: partly to mostly cloudy with a few scattered rain showers. Lows between 36°-41°. North wind 10-20 MPH.

Tuesday: mostly cloudy with some sunny breaks possible. A few scattered showers possible especially over eastern areas. Highs between 50°-60°. North/northwest wind 15-25 MPH.

Wednesday: partly to mostly cloudy with a few scattered showers possible. Highs in the 50s to near 60°.

Thursday: mix of sun and clouds. Highs in the mid-50s to low 60s.

Friday: partly sunny with highs in the upper 40s to mid-50s.
