Warm to start, cold to finish
It will be one extreme to another across much of the region for Wednesday as record high temperatures are possible for Millinocket, Bangor and Portland as the mercury climbs into the 50s and 60s. The region is comfortably in the warm sector to start off, but a cold front works through in the afternoon which brings a strong, gusty wind and the thermometer to crash with all areas below freezing by mid-evening.
A wind advisory is posted for the western mountains where a downslope wind could reach 45-50+ mph late in the afternoon into the evening. The wind gradually settles down as high pressure pays a quick visit for Thursday.
