A dreary and cool weather pattern sets up this weekend and into next week.

A low-pressure system is forming over the Gulf of Maine and will stall out. This will keep the weather unsettled for much of the region, especially south and east of the I-95 corridor for today. Expect mostly cloudy skies with patchy drizzle and scattered rain showers. The farther west and north you head the drier it will be. With mostly cloudy skies temperatures will only make it into the upper 40′s and 50′s this afternoon, except for northern Aroostook County where some sunshine could warm temperatures into the lower 60′s.
High pressure will slowly begin to slide to our east tonight into Thursday. For today we will see another warm day with plenty of sunshine. We’ll start off with some areas of fog that will burn off through the morning hours. After the fog burns off, we’ll be left with partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies. High temperatures, while still warm, will not reach record level like yesterday. Expect highs to reach the mid to upper 70′s inland. An on shore breeze will keep temperatures cooler along the coast, expect highs to only top out in the low to mid 60′s. Quiet weather will continue tonight as the ridge of high pressure slides to our east. Expect low temperatures to remain well above average, only dropping into the mid to upper 50′s.
