Variably Cloudy & Dry Today, Rain Arrives Wednesday
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - A ridge of high pressure will slide to our east later today while a weak disturbance passes to our south. Expect plenty of clouds around the state today with some filtered sunshine at times especially over northern and eastern parts of the state. The disturbance passing to our south will be far enough to our south to keep the shower activity out of the area today so a dry day is expected. Temperatures will be in the mid-50s to low 60s this afternoon. Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight with lows in the 40s.
Low pressure is forecast to move through the area Wednesday bringing us a wet and cool day. Rain will spread across the state during the morning and will be steadier and heavier during the afternoon and evening hours. Temperatures on Wednesday will be cooler due to the rainy conditions with highs in the mid-40s to low 50s. Showers will linger into Thursday morning before the system moves out. Skies will brighten Thursday afternoon with highs climbing back to the 50s to around 60°. Friday looks decent with a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the 50s to around 60°. We’ll be watching low pressure passing offshore Saturday. Depending on how close that comes will determine if we see any showers to start the weekend. Otherwise expect mostly cloudy skies Saturday with highs in the mid-50s to low 60s.
