BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Tonight, we continue to cool down into the 20′s and 30′s and remain dry with winds out of the northwest at around 5-10 mph. We’ll see mostly cloudy to partly cloudy skies.

High pressure builds in for the day on Monday and we’ll see partly sunny skies with temperatures in the mid to upper 30′s to the lower 40′s. Our next system moves in Tuesday afternoon bringing in scattered rain showers for most of the state. Northwestern Maine may start off with a brief period of mixing before changing over to all rain. The precipitation tapers off early Wednesday morning. As we head into Wednesday, this will be the warmest day of the week with highs well into the 50′s. After the big warm up for Wednesday we see a big cool off for Thursday and to end the week, highs drop back down into the 20′s.

Models have been going back and forth on the position and precipitation type for the potential system on Thursday/Friday. A weak low-pressure system looks to ride up and along a stationary front and just off the coast of Maine, this has the potential to bring in some more rain/snow mix to end the week. The system looks to be disorganized and impacts look to remain low, but of course as more data becomes available, we will continue to update you.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy to partly cloudy skies, lows drop between 22-30, with winds out of the NW 5-10 MPH.

MONDAY: Partly cloudy skies with highs reaching between 34-41.

TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy to overcast skies. Highs in the 30s and low 40s. Showers move in for the afternoon & evening.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy with a few isolated rain showers AM. Highs reach the 50′s.

THURSDAY: Chance for rain/snow. Highs in the upper 30s.

FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy with potential snow, highs in the 20s and low 30s.
