Slight Improvement In Our Heat & Humidity Friday
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Conditions will still stay warm and humid for the first part of the night. A cold front will begin to move into northern locations and will bring the chance for widely scattered showers & storms. Strongest storms are expected over parts of western Maine. The Bangor area and Downeast should remain clear of any storms. Partly to mostly cloudy skies expected overnight with lows ranging from 60° to 70°. There will be areas of fog along the coast.
The front will push towards the coast on Friday where it will stall and bring widely scattered showers & storms during the afternoon. The best chance for any storms will be along, south & east of I-95. It will still be warm and humid on Friday with highs ranging from the upper 70s across the north to the upper 80s along I-95. Dew points will remain in the 60s & 70s and will push heat index values into the low 90s.
Warm and humid conditions expected to stick around into the weekend. Saturday will have a mixture of sun & clouds and will be the coolest day of the weekend. Highs are expected to be in the upper 70s to the upper 80s. There will be an isolated chance for a shower or thunderstorm. It is still humid, but dew points will be mostly in the 60s.
By Sunday, the heat will return, and highs will reach the 80s and even some mid 90s. Sunday could be a few degrees warmer than Thursday and looks to be one of our hottest days of the year. Dew points will be in the upper 60s to low 70s. This combined with the heat will push heat index values for inland areas into the upper 90s and even close to 100°. Because of this, another FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY has been issued for inland areas on Sunday. A cold front will begin to cross the state Sunday night and will bring the chance for showers & storms that will stick around into Monday.
