BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - After a day with record breaking temperatures, the region is seeing a few isolated thunderstorms this evening. Severe storms are not expected.

Temperatures will drop significantly on Sunday as a backdoor cold front drops through the state. A low pressure system will push in from the west. This system is expected to bring a wet pattern to start the week. Showers are expected on Sunday along a stalled front and will continue through Monday morning. There will be a break in the moisture during the day on Monday, but severe thunderstorms are possible across western Maine as a cold front moves in. Showers and non-severe thunderstorms are expected through the night elsewhere as the front passes. A few showers are possible again on Tuesday as the low passed over the state.
