BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - A warm front will remain stalled out across northern areas today while a cold front approaches from the west. This will give us a chance for scattered showers and possibly a few thunderstorms throughout the day. The best chance for any showers and thunderstorms will be for areas north and west of Bangor while dry conditions are expected elsewhere. Any thunderstorms that develop could produce heavy rainfall, hail and/or damaging wind. Mostly cloudy skies will prevail today although some breaks of sunshine can’t be ruled out especially away from the coast. There will be a wide range in temperatures today with coastal areas staying in the 60s due to the onshore breeze, inland areas will top off in the 70s to near 80° especially with some breaks of sunshine then far northern locales will stay in the 60s where showers are more likely. Humidity will increase today as well with dewpoints climbing into the low to mid-60s. Scattered showers will continue tonight. Temperatures will be mild with lows in the upper 50s to mid-60s.

Low pressure will drag a cold front across the state Saturday bringing us scattered showers and a few thunderstorms throughout the day. Heavy rainfall, hail and/or damaging wind will be the main concerns with any thunderstorms. Temperatures Saturday will be in the 60s to around 70°.
