From the TV 5 Forecast Center:
A warm front approaching from the south and west will spread rain from west to east across the state during the mid-late afternoon hours. Temperatures will be a bit below average again with highs in the 50s to low 60s this afternoon. It'll be breezy today as the pressure gradient over the area tightens with low pressure approaching from the west and high pressure located off to our east. Southeast winds could gust to 25 MPH at times during the day today. Rain will continue tonight, tapering to showers late. By late tonight, rainfall totals will average about .5" to 1" for areas south of Greenville and Millinocket with .2"-.5" for most spots north. It'll be milder tonight with temperatures remaining in the 50s to near 60° for nighttime lows.
On Wednesday, low pressure will pull a cold front towards the state, keeping us under the clouds and chance for some scattered showers throughout the day. The shower activity looks pretty well scattered Wednesday so it doesn't look like the day will be a washout but keep in mind showers will be possible at any point throughout the day. Heavier, more numerous showers will move in towards Wednesday evening and night as the cold front crosses the state. Temperatures will be milder ahead of cold front Wednesday with highs topping off in the upper 60s to low 70s. South/southwesterly winds will be breezy Wednesday with gusts to 25 MPH possible. High pressure will move into the region Thursday to dry us out and bring us a decent day. Thursday will feature partly to mostly sunny skies with highs mainly in the 60s. Friday looks decent with variably cloudy skies and temperatures in the 60s to near 70°. High pressure will be with us on Saturday to bring us a nice start to the weekend.
