Mix of Sun & Clouds Today, No Travel Concerns
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds this afternoon with highs in the 30s to low 40s, warmest towards the coast. A few isolated snow showers will be possible especially across the north and mountains. High pressure will build into the area tonight, setting us up with a clear and very cold night. Temperatures will be in the teens to near 20° for most spots, warmest along the coast. However, northern areas will likely dip to the single digits to near 10° especially from Greenville to Millinocket northward. I wouldn’t be surprised to see spots across northern Aroostook County drop below 0°.
High pressure will bring us a sunny and chilly Thanksgiving Day. After a cold start, temperatures will climb to the 30s for highs Thursday afternoon. Clouds return for Friday as a cold front moves into the region. This will bring us some showers especially later Friday morning through the afternoon. Temperatures ahead of the front will be a bit warmer so with highs reaching the upper 30s to mid-40s. Showers will be in the form of rain for areas south of Greenville and Millinocket while areas to the north see mixed rain and snow showers. The showers will move out Friday night as the cold front moves to our east. High pressure will build into the area Saturday giving us a brighter and drier start to the weekend with highs mainly in the mid-30s to near 40° north and low to mid-40s elsewhere under mostly sunny skies. Low pressure is forecast to move into the area Sunday. This is looking like a warmer storm resulting in periods of rain likely for the second half of our weekend.
