BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Mostly cloudy skies will continue this afternoon with showers moving across the northern half of the state, mainly from Greenville to Millinocket northward, as a warm front approaches. The increased cloudiness will keep temperatures bit cooler today with highs in the 60s inland. The combination of more clouds and a stronger southerly breeze will keep it even cooler along the coast where temperatures will likely stay in the mid and upper 50s this afternoon. The southerly breeze could gust to around 25 MPH at times. Skies will remain mostly cloudy tonight with lows in the 50s. Scattered showers will continue across the north tonight as well.
