Central and Southern Maine Weather


SUNNY BUT COOL

Clear skies and a lighter winds are aiding at a pretty chilly start to the day.  Early morning temperatures are starting in the teens and 20s which is about 15 degrees below normal. The daily record low for today at the Jetport is 24 degrees and that record is in jeopardy. Sun will rule the sky today with afternoon highs staying in the 40s.  Friday will showcase a mix of sun and clouds. Winds will turn onshore that day which will keep coolest temperatures at the coastline.  A few rain showers are possible on Saturday and temperatures will approach seasonable levels. Brighter skies and more pleasant temperatures in the mid 50s will return on Easter Sunday.
