BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - We’ll continue to see partly to mostly sunny skies through the afternoon hours. Temperatures will be a bit cooler today than yesterday, especially along the coast due to a stronger southerly breeze. The south/southeasterly wind will gust to 20-25 MPH at times today. This will keep temperatures right around or a little above 60° along the coast while inland and northern areas see highs in the upper 60s to low 70s this afternoon. The southerly breeze will usher moisture in off the ocean tonight resulting in increasing clouds along with areas of fog and patchy drizzle. Lows tonight will be right around 50°.

We’ll start our Thursday with mostly cloudy skies, areas of fog and patchy drizzle. As the day progresses, skies are expected to brighten making for a nicer second half of the day. There is a slight chance of an isolated shower Thursday but overall the day looks to be dry. Temperatures on Thursday will be in the mid-60s along the coast and upper 60s to mid-70s inland.
