BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - The threat for severe weather has ended. There will still be showers & isolated thunderstorms moving out of Quebec and across northern Maine overnight. Partly cloudy skies with some areas of fog possible, especially for locations that saw rain today. Lows will range from the upper 40s to the mid 50s.

A MUCH cooler airmass will move into the region behind the cold front making for a cool & dreary weekend. Low pressure at the surface will stall out to our northeast, this combined with an upper-level low that will also stall out overhead will help to bring us WELL below normal highs.

The surface low will spin in clouds and scattered showers for both Saturday & Sunday. Saturday will have the best chance for showers across the northern half of the state. There will still be the chance for showers over the south, but the potential will be much lower. Highs on Saturday will be mostly in the 50s with a couple of low 60s possible. Lows Saturday night into Sunday morning will drop into the 40s, but some higher elevations may see temperatures dropping into the 30s. This could lead to a few snowflakes mixing in with any rain showers for the higher elevations.
