From the TV 5 Forecast Center:
High pressure will provide us with a sunny day today. After a frigid start, temperatures will rebound to the low to mid-20s to highs in most locales. The wind will be light and variable and so wind chills won’t be a factor in the forecast today. Skies will be clear to partly cloudy tonight. Temperatures will be in the single digits to mid-teens for most spots, warmest toward the coast. Northeastern parts of the state will have the best chance to see some readings dropping below 0° as skies are expected to remain clear all night in these locations.
High pressure will slide to our east on Friday. This will cause our wind to shift around to the southwest and usher some milder, more seasonable air into the region. We’ll start our Friday with partly to mostly sunny skies followed by increasing clouds during the afternoon as a cold front approaches from the west. Temperatures will be in the 30s to near 40° for highs Friday afternoon. The cold front is forecast to cross the area Friday night and early Saturday morning giving us a chance for some rain and snow showers. Skies will brighten up during the day Saturday as high pressure builds in. Temperatures on Saturday will be a bit milder with highs in the mid-30s to mid-40s from north to south. High pressure will remain in control on Sunday giving us a nice second half of the weekend with sunshine and temperatures in the 30s for highs. Low pressure is forecast to pass south and east of the area Monday and may be close enough to bring us some light snow to start the work week. We’ll keep an eye on it as we get closer.
Today: Sunny and cold. Highs between 19°-27°. Light and variable wind.
Tonight: Clear to partly cloudy. Lows between 0°-15°. Light and variable wind.
Friday: Partly to mostly sunny during the morning then increasing clouds during the afternoon. A few afternoon snow showers possible north and west of Bangor. Not as cold with highs between 31°-41°. Southwest wind 5-15 MPH.
