BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Upper-level energy over the region will keep a chance of showers in the forecast for both today and Friday.

Our Thursday will feature variably cloudy skies, comfortable humidity levels and highs in the low to mid-70s. As the day progresses, the atmosphere will become more unstable, leading to a chance for a few showers and possibly a thunderstorm this afternoon and evening. Any showers and /or thunderstorms that develop will wind down shortly after sunset followed by a quiet night tonight under partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will drop back to the 50s for overnight lows.

Friday looks to be very similar to today with a mix of sun and clouds and the chance for a few afternoon showers and possibly a thunderstorm but the bulk of the day looks decent overall. Temperatures on Friday will top off in the 70s to near 80°. High pressure will build in for Saturday giving us a fantastic start to the weekend. We’ll see partly to mostly sunny skies Saturday with highs in the mid-70s to around 80°. A warm front approaching the area on Sunday will bring us a chance of showers for the second half of the weekend.

Today: Variably cloudy and less humid. A few afternoon showers and thunderstorms possible. Highs between 69°-76°. North/northwest wind 5-15 MPH.
