Thursday: Warm and comfortable
Thursday looks to be a beautiful day statewide. An area of high pressure is over the New England region, providing mostly clear skies and temperatures ranging from mid to high 60s, and in the 70s in the southern areas of the state. Dew points range comfortably from the high 40s to low 50s, and winds are from the northwest and range from 5 to 8 mph.
Friday: Light and scattered rain statewide
A weak area of low pressure moves over north of Maine on Friday and bringing light and scattered rain across the state in the morning and early afternoon hours of the day. Temperatures remain mostly similar to Thursday, except some southern areas in the mid 70s. Dew points increase slightly and range from low to mid 50s, and winds shift westerly and range from 5 to 8 mph.
The GIF above runs from 8 AM Saturday to 8 PM Sunday and shows 3-hour potential reflectivity by a long-range model. Besides the light rain for Friday, the weekend looks mostly dry statewide. An area of low pressure hangs around for the weekend, so it may be cloudy with some breaks of sunshine.

Thank you for all your support!
Alex and I have been extremely grateful for the opportunity to forecast for the lovely state of Maine! I wanted to thank each and every person who has said kind words, sent appreciation, and who have just read our forecasts, because without you all, we wouldn't have been able to reach out to Mike when our own summer internships fell through and forecast remotely for Maine. Thank you all so much, and if you'd like to contribute to our efforts, our Venmos are above (never expected, but always appreciated!).
