Pleasant Saturday, Turning Colder Sunday
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - An upper-level low will continue to spin over the Canadian Maritimes. This will bring some clouds and a few scattered snow showers over parts of northern & western Maine through the first part of the evening. Overnight lows will range from the teens north to the mid to upper 20s closer to the coast.
Saturday will be the pick of the weekend as temperatures will reach the upper 30s and low 40s with mostly sunny skies. A weak upper-level ridge will help to bring a nice first part of the weekend. By Sunday, the same upper-level low that has been sitting over the Hudson Bay will spin in clouds, snow showers and colder air into the region. Highs on Sunday will be mostly in the 30s.
High pressure will begin to build on Sunday evening into Monday. This will bring even colder air and will also cause our winds to pick up. Westerly winds Sunday night into Monday could gust up to 30-35 mph. This combined with the cold air will result in some wind chill values over northern Maine that could fall below 0°. Highs on Monday will be in the low to mid 30s.
Quiet and cold conditions leading up to Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving Day also looks to remain quiet with highs in the 30s.
Once we get into the weekend after Thanksgiving, that is when the pattern could change. It is still VERY early and will be highly track dependent, but a low-pressure system could bring us initially snow Friday morning before changing over to rain lasting into Saturday.
