Increasing Clouds, Patchy Fog & Light Drizzle Overnight. Nice Thursday Afternoon
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Low clouds have begun to develop from MidCoast & southwest. Clouds will continue to develop along coastal Downeast and will push inland overnight. Expect areas of low clouds, patchy fog & even drizzle. Overnight lows will range from the upper 40s to the low 50s.
Clouds, fog & light drizzle into early Thursday morning. The frontal system that was expected to cross the region on Thursday now looks to stall out to our west. As the day progresses, skies will brighten especially during the afternoon. Highs will reach the low 60s along the coast to the low to mid 70s inland. The frontal system will approach the region Thursday night into early Friday morning. This will bring VERY light showers across western locations. An area of low pressure moving northwards through the Gulf of Maine will graze portions of Downeast and eastern Maine. This will also help to bring some VERY light showers into Friday morning.
Friday will start off with some clouds, a few light showers and patchy fog. The rest of the day will consist of increasing sunshine. Highs will range from the upper 60s and low 70s along the coast to the upper 70s inland.
A ridge of high pressure will move in for the first weekend of Summer. This will bring very Summer like conditions to the region. Expect mostly sunny skies both Saturday & Sunday with temperatures that will range from the low 70s to the mid 80s. Saturday looks to be the warmer of the two weekend days. Dew points will also climb this weekend. Expect dew point temperatures to reach the low to mid 60s making for humid conditions.
A cold front looks to cross the region on Monday. This will return highs to more seasonable and will also bring the chance for showers and even some thunderstorms. A few of these showers could linger into Tuesday. It does appear that an area of high pressure will move in behind the front bringing quieter and seasonable conditions into the middle part of next week.
