BANGOR, Maine (WABI) -The weak low-pressure system will exit the region and into the Canadian Maritimes tonight. Low temperatures drop into the single digits and teens north, and into the 20′s and 30′s DownEast. Winds will turn from southerly to northwesterly at around 5-10 mph. Precipitation shuts off DownEast this evening while snow lingers up north into later tonight.

Monday, we dry out with partly cloudy skies and high temperatures in the teens and 20′s inland, and lower 30′s along the coast. Clouds increase through Monday as an upper-level trough swings through. This trough will stir up some scattered snow showers Monday night. Little accumulation is expected. A ridge of high pressure builds in along the east coast and keeps us quiet for the rest of next week.

Temperatures continue to cool through the middle of next week as an arctic front moves in, bringing us the coldest temperatures we’ve seen yet this winter. High temperatures by Friday may only top out in the teens, and possibly top out below zero by Saturday, winds will also be gusty Friday into Saturday. This, possibly, drops our feel-like temperatures Saturday morning into the double digits below zero. Due to the potentially dangerous cold we have issued a FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY for Saturday.

TONIGHT: Rain shower taper off this evening for the Bangor region, snow lingers into later tonight up north. We’ll see clearing skies overnight. Lows drop into the single digits and teens north, with temperatures dropping into the upper 20′s and lower 30′s DownEast.

MONDAY: Partly cloudy skies, with high temperatures in the low 20s to mid 30s. Northwest wind 5-10 mph. PM Light scattered snow showers possible.

TUESDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs in the mid-teens to mid 20s. West wind 5-15 mph.

WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs in the upper teens to mid 20s. West wind 5-15 mph.

THURSDAY: Scattered snow showers possible late PM, highs reach the teens and 20′s.

FRIDAY: Partly cloudy, highs only reach the single digits and teens.
