Few Isolated Showers Possible This Afternoon
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - An upper-level disturbance will continue to approach the region this afternoon giving us partly to mostly cloudy skies with the brightest conditions across northern locales. We may also see a few isolated showers this afternoon and evening as the disturbance approaches but overall it looks like most areas will remain rain-free. With more clouds overhead today, temperatures will be a bit cooler with highs in the 60s to near 70°, warmest up north due to a bit more sunshine and coolest along the coast due to the cloudiness and a southerly breeze off the ocean. The upper-level disturbance will move through the state tonight and early Saturday. This may bring us a few isolated showers during the overnight mainly for areas closer to and along the coast. Temperatures will drop back to the 40s to near 50°.
We may see a few showers early in the day Saturday along the coastline as the disturbance exits the area. Otherwise expect a great day Saturday with partly to mostly sunny skies and temperatures climbing to the mid and upper 60s along the coast and low to mid-70s inland. Sunday looks good too with a mix of sun and clouds and highs topping off in the 70s to near 80°. Our rain chances increase Sunday night into Monday as weak low pressure develops to our west. Monday will feature cloudy skies and numerous showers. Temperatures on Monday will be cooler, in the 60s, due to the clouds and shower activity. The area of low pressure will move into the state Tuesday keep the chance of showers in the forecast. Temperatures on Tuesday will be in the upper 60s to mid-70s.
