Variably Cloudy & Mild Today & Saturday, Bright & Chilly Sunday
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - A warm front will lift northward through the state today. This will bring us a partly to mostly cloudy sky today as it works through the area. The front may trigger a few scattered showers across northern areas this morning but otherwise expect a mainly dry day today. High temps will range from the mid 50s north to the low 60s south this afternoon. A storm lifting northeast from the Great Lakes Region into Ontario will bring a mild southerly breeze to Maine tonight and part of Saturday. As the storm continues to move north Saturday it will pull a cold front through New England. The cold front will likely trigger a few scattered showers across Maine Saturday as it moves through the state, with the bulk of the showers falling across the north and mountains. Temperatures on Saturday will once again run a bit above normal as highs range from the mid 50s to low 60s from north to south across our region.
High pressure moving east across central Canada will bring Maine and the rest of New England a bright Sunday. A northerly breeze on the east side of the high will usher a chillier airmass into our region for the second half of the weekend as high temperatures range from the low 40s north to the very low 50s across southern Maine. A storm moving northeast from the Ohio River Valley will likely bring a chilly rain to Maine Monday, with a rain and snow mix possible across the north and mountains during the morning and early afternoon. Tuesday looks like a partly cloudy and cool day, with another small storm likely bringing wet and cool conditions to Maine on Wednesday.
Today: Partly to mostly cloudy, with a south to southeast breeze under 10 mph and high temps in the 50s to very low 60s.
Saturday: Variably cloudy, a few showers possible, mainly north, with a south wind between 5 and 10 mph becoming northwest late and high temps in the mid 50s to low 60s.
