BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Tonight, skies remain partly cloudy. Overnight lows drop into the 20′s across the state, with winds out of the west at around 5-15 mph. As our low continues to depart to the north a high-pressure system ridges into the Midatlantic. This will create a tight pressure gradient force, which will result in some gusty winds on Sunday. Winds could gust as high as 35 mph out of the west. Some moisture wrapping around the departing low could push some isolated snow showers through the region throughout the day on Sunday. Showers could drop a quick coating to an inch. High temperatures drop below average only making it into the low to mid 30′s. Sunday night isolated snow showers clear out and skies will become mostly clear. Overnight lows drop into the teens north to the lower 20′s through the Bangor region and Downeast.

Spring begins on Monday! We’ll be ringing in the season with mostly sunny skies and seasonable temperatures in the low 40′s. The pressure gradient will still be tight, and winds will still be gusting up to 30 mph, but skies will be mostly sunny. The first half of next week looks to remain dry with partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies, with seasonable highs reaching the 40′s. Our next weather maker doesn’t look to move in until Thursday, where a weak low-pressure system will cut over the Great Lakes region and send in another warm and cold front. Precipitation could start off as snow then change to rain from southwest to northeast. Showers continue into Friday morning, highs in Friday reach the mid to upper 40′s. Then we’ll be keeping an eye on another system moving in for next weekend with chance for more rain and snow showers.

TONIGHT: Quiet with Partly cloudy skies, winds W at around 5-15 mph. Lows drop between 21-29.
