Mostly to partly cloudy tonight, warmer temperatures and more sunshine Monday
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - We are seeing some filtered sunshine DownEast heading into the evening. Tonight, there will be mostly cloudy to partly cloudy skies with overnight low temperatures dropping into the teens and 20′s across the state. Flurries and light snow showers linger around north of the Katahdin Region. Winds will be out of the south at around 5-15 mph.
High pressure builds to the north of the region into Quebec Monday into Tuesday. This will allow for partly cloudy skies and drier conditions. Highs on Monday will reach the upper 20′s north and mid to upper 30′s DownEast, possibly touching 40 along the coast.
High temperatures continue to rise into the 30′s and 40′s for the middle and end of the week. Our next system looks to move in Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning. An area of low pressure passes to the north of the state into Canada, dragging a cold front through the region late Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning. The front will bring in some light snow across northern Maine with a snow/rain mix Downeast. We dry out by late Wednesday morning and sunshine returns Wednesday afternoon. We will stay quiet through the first half of Thursday. Then, another system cuts over the Great Lakes region, putting us on the warm side of the storm, and sends more rain/snow mix our way for Thursday afternoon into Friday morning. At the moment, it looks like most of the state starts off with a snow/mix, then southerly winds usher in warm air, changing any frozen precipitation over to rain by Friday. Locations across far northern Maine look to stay all snow.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy to partly cloudy skies, with snow showers lingering up north. Overnight low temperatures drop between 18-30, with winds out of the S at around 5-15 mph.
MONDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs in the upper 20s north and mid to upper 30s DownEast.
TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy with snow showers north and rain snow/mix south late PM. Highs in the 30s.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy with a rain/snow mix ending early AM. Highs in the 30s and low 40s.
THURSDAY: Partly sunny. Highs in the 30s and low 40s. Snow/rain mix PM
FRIDAY: Snow/rain mix to rain, highs in the 30′s.
