Breezy & Warm This Afternoon, Much Cooler Air On The Way
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - A cold front will cross the state today. Showers associated with the front have exited the state and we will see plenty of sunshine statewide for the remainder of the day. Colder air will gradually move in behind the front as the day progresses. Highs will reach the 60s to low 70s for highs through early afternoon then gradually fall to the 40s north and 50s elsewhere by late afternoon and early evening. Record highs will still be possible today before the colder air arrives. Winds will turn to the west/northwest this afternoon with gusts to 30-35 MPH possible. Skies will be clear tonight. The northwest wind will remain gusty through the overnight with gusts to 30 MPH possible. As the colder air continues to move in, temperatures will drop back to the 30s for overnight lows, feeling colder with the wind factored in.
We’ll see a sunny and much cooler day Tuesday. Temperatures on Tuesday will only reach the low to mid-40s for highs in most locales. With strong low pressure over the Maritimes and strong high pressure across Central Canada, we’ll have a tight pressure gradient over the area resulting in a gusty northwest wind Tuesday. The wind could again gust to 30-35 MPH at times. Wednesday looks beautiful as high pressure moves overhead. We’ll see lots of sunshine, light winds and cool temperatures. Highs on Wednesday will be in the 40s to near 50°. High pressure will then slide to our south on Thursday which will turn our wind back to the southwest and bring some warmer air back into the region. A cold front will move towards Northern Maine on bringing us a bit more cloudiness for the day Thursday. Look for a mix of sun and clouds Thursday with afternoon highs in the 50s to near 60°. Friday looks good right now with a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the 50s to near 60°. Wet weather returns to our forecast to start the weekend.
