Breezy & Milder Today
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - An increasing south to southwest breeze will develop across Maine today as high pressure slides off the coast just to our south. The combination of the southerly breeze and some hazy sunshine will push the high temps into the upper 60s to mid 70s this afternoon, which is slightly above normal for this time of year. A rather moisture starved cold front will bring Maine some scattered showers Thursday, mainly during the afternoon and evening hours as the front works southeast through New England. As the cold front moves off to our east a large dome of Canadian high pressure will begin to build towards New England Friday. The high will bring a partly to mostly sunny sky to Maine Friday, with a mostly sunny sky expected across the Pine Tree State both weekend days. A northwest breeze on the east side of the high will usher a slightly cooler than normal airmass into our region Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The high will likely continue to control the weather across Maine Monday and Tuesday as well. A southwest breeze will bring milder temps back to our region early next week as the high moves off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline.
Today: Partly to mostly sunny, with a south to southwest breeze between 10 and 20 mph and high temps in the mid 60s to mid 70s.
Thursday: Variably cloudy, breezy, a few scattered showers possible, with a southwest breeze between 7 and 15 mph becoming northwest late and high temps in the 60s to low 70s.
Friday: Parly to mostly sunny, with high temps in the upper 50s to mid 60s.
Saturday: Mostly sunny, with high temps in the upper 50s to mid 60s.
Sunday: Mostly sunny, with high temps in the upper 50s to mid 60s.
