Fire that killed a family of four Thursday in Caribou was started by one of the children.


Central and Southern Maine Weather


Tonight will most likely be the coldest night of the season so far for many communities. Winds will relax a bit overnight which will allow temperatures to dip into the teens for most of the area. Some single digits are expected in the mountain valleys.   Saturday should be the final day of this cold stretch with highs again struggling to get out of the 30s. Winds will stay active out of the west and southwest which will make it feel a little bit colder.  A weak front may touch off a rain or snow shower Saturday night into early Sunday morning. After that skies should clear setting the stage for a mild end to the weekend. Many towns will experience highs around 50 degrees on Sunday.  The first part of the work week is looking wet and mild. Skies should clear on Tuesday and temperatures will cool once again.  A storm may graze us on Wednesday into Wednesday night providing a round of light snow.  Skies should clear on Thanksgiving.
