BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Low pressure will slide to our east this afternoon. Skies will remain cloudy with scattered showers continuing through the evening hours. Temperatures won’t move due to the clouds, a north/northeast breeze and shower chances. Highs will only reach the low to mid-50s for most spots this afternoon. Skies will remain cloudy tonight along with the chance for some scattered showers through the overnight, mainly across eastern and northeastern parts of the state. Overnight lows will drop to the mid-40s to low 50s.

High pressure will build in for Wednesday giving us a drier and brighter day. We’ll likely start the day with plenty of clouds but expect sunny breaks to develop by late morning through the afternoon. Temperatures will be more seasonable Wednesday with highs in the 60s to near 70°. Rain will return to our forecast Wednesday night into Thursday as low pressure, passing to our north, drags a cold front through the state.

We should see some brightening skies in the wake of the front Thursday afternoon too. Thursday’s highs will be in the upper 50s to mid-60s. Drier, breezy and cooler weather will move in for Friday.
