Enjoy the day!
A top ten weather day is on the docket for Maine Saturday as a Canadian high keeps the heat and humidity to the southwest giving the region a break from the sultry conditions for a day. The further north, the more sun. Southern and western areas see clouds on the increase as the high shifts to the east. The western mountains may see a light shower or sprinkle this afternoon as warm air back intrudes in at mid and high levels of the atmosphere, but that is about the only chance for any precipitation for the day. It will be great day to keep the windows open and enjoy organic air conditioning.
As high pressure shifts further to the east Saturday night, clouds increase statewide. Shower chances increase in the mountains along the Quebec border as a warm front pushes in from the west.
Northern areas have the best chance for scattered shower activity for Sunday, where southern areas appear to stay dry for the day. Humidity begins to tick upward over southwestern areas. Varying amounts of clouds will be the main sky feature for the day as warmer air builds in. With the increase in humidity comes the risk for patchy fog to develop Sunday night.
Oppressive humidity levels return for Monday as dew point temperatures surge to the upper 60s to low 70s. A cold front approaches the region from the northwest. Showers and thunderstorms are possible Monday afternoon, with isolated severe potential. After the frontal passage Monday night, humidity levels drop for interior areas, but may stay a bit on the sticky side for the southwest coast to start Tuesday before drying out later in the day.
