Central and Southern Maine Weather


Another reinforcing shot of cold air will arrive Friday on a stiff northwesterly wind.  Expect gusts around 30 mph with air temperatures only expected to top out in the middle 30s.  Wind chill values will stay in the teens and low 20s for most of the day.  Saturday will be another chilly day in vacationland with highs struggling to get out of the 30s again.  Winds won’t be quite as strong though which will make for a slightly better day.  Our next warm-up begins on Sunday. While a brief shower is possible, most of the day will be dry with some sun making an appearance. Afternoon highs should warm into the upper 40s for most towns.   A round of rain should arrive Monday morning and most of that day should remain cloudy.  Milder temperatures will arrive with highs surging into the 50s for the first time in a while.  Colder air will start to work back into the area Tuesday. It appears a storm will stay east of our area Wednesday but needs to be watched.  It’s early but Thanksgiving looks quiet with temperatures a few degrees below normal.
