BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - High pressure will begin to move in today. This will keep us free and clear of any rainfall through the weekend. Highs will be quite a bit cooler this afternoon with highs ranging from the low 50s over the north to the mid 60s closer to the coast. By tonight into Friday morning, temperatures will be on the cooler side with the potential for areas of frost as lows drop into the 30s and low 40s.

Friday through Saturday conditions will warm with highs, mostly in the 60s with mostly sunny skies. Saturday will be slightly warmer with a few spots that could reach the low 60s.

A secondary Canadian high pressure will be moving into the region on Sunday. This will bring cooler air back to the region as highs by Sunday into early next week are expected to be in the 50s and low 60s. Conditions will remain dry with mostly sunny skies. Sunday night into Monday morning will be another potential for frost. This time around, it does appear most of the region, including Downeast areas, will have lows in the 30s and will see the threat of the first frost of the season.

Widespread frost expected across the majority of the region Sunday night into Monday morning.

The remnants of Hurricane Ian will be moving up the east coast by early next week. High pressure looks to be situated over the state and should keep rain; wind & cloud cover free of the region during the first part of next week. As the high moves to our east by late next week we could see some clouds and showers associated with Ian move into the Gulf of Maine and we may have to deal with some maritime impacts.

TODAY: Partly to mostly sunny skies and cooler with highs in the 50s and low 60s. Northwest wind 5-15 mph.

FRIDAY: Patchy frost in the morning over northern Maine. Mostly sunny with highs in the 60s.
