A Gusty Wind & Falling Temperatures Today

Updated: 1 hour ago

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - A few snow showers are possible this morning mainly across the northern half of the state and in the mountains. Otherwise, expect snow showers to wind down this morning followed by partly to mostly sunny skies. The main headline in our forecast today is the gusty northwest wind and falling temperatures expected. Low pressure will strengthen as it moves into the Maritimes today while high pressure builds in from the west. This will result in a strong northwest wind across Maine. That strong northwest wind will usher colder air into the region as the day progresses. So high temperatures will occur early this morning with readings in the 30s to near 40° then fall throughout the day and will be down to the upper teens to mid-20s by later this afternoon. The northwest wind could gust to 40-45 MPH at times which will make it feel even colder and could cause some scattered power outages too. We’ll see clear to partly cloudy skies tonight with diminishing wind. It’ll be cold tonight with lows dropping to the upper single numbers to low teens north and teens to near 20° elsewhere.
