BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Rain continues to spread across the region as a cold front moves through. The front will move to our east overnight, but rain will continue to wrap in to part of central, eastern & northern Maine into Thursday morning. Overnight lows will range from the upper 30s to the mid 40s.

Rainfall totals will range from 0.75″ to 1.25″ in the Mountains and over northern Maine. From the Foothills towards the coast, expect less than 0.5″.

Cooler air will move in behind the front. Highs on Thursday will range from the 40s over the Crown of Maine to the 50s elsewhere. Expect mostly cloudy to overcast skies along with a few wrap around showers for locations north & east of Bangor.
