BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - High pressure is sitting over the region tonight. Clear skies are expected overnight and temperatures are expected to drop into the 20s. It will also be a little breezy along the coast.

Thanksgiving will be very nice with sunny skies and highs in the 40s. Clouds will begin to build in Thursday afternoon and evening ahead of a low pressure system and associated cold front that will move the region.

On Friday, a wintry mix is expected inland, snow in the higher elevations and rain along the coast as the low moves through. This could make post-Thanksgiving travel slick in places. Travelers should be aware of road conditions. Precipitation will change over to snow Friday night and linger into Saturday. Less than 1.0″ is expected along the coast, 1-3″ inland, and 3-6+” in western Maine. This system will move out Saturday night and make way for mostly sunny conditions on Sunday.
