Saturday looks to be yet another unsettled and chilly day across much of the state. This is due to a surface low passing near Cape Cod on Saturday and moving offshore to the northeast past our region. High temperatures are expected to be chilly for this time of year with upper 50’s to mid-60’s expected statewide. High temperatures in the 50’s are favored over the higher elevations of western Maine and for the immediate coastal locations. Skies will be overcast throughout the day across the state with rain showers likely. The rain showers are likely to be more widespread over the southern half of the state Saturday.
Saturday night we can expect mostly cloudy skies across the state as the upper low moves off to the northeast. There could be some leftover shower activity primarily in Downeast Maine for the overnight. Low temperatures should be in the upper 40’s to mid-50's.
Independence Day should start off mostly cloudy to overcast across the state with morning showers likely. As an upper-level disturbance moves away from our area throughout the course of the day, we should see skies turn partly to mostly cloudy by the evening. High temperatures on Sunday are expected to be in the low to mid-60’s across the southern half of the state with 50’s likely for the mountains and for the shoreline locations. If you are thinking of watching or setting off your own fireworks for the Fourth of July, conditions shortly after sunset will likely be mostly cloudy with isolated showers and temperatures in the upper 50’s to lower 60’s for many.
Sunday night we should see low temperatures ranging from the upper 40’s to mid-50's across the state with partly to mostly cloudy skies expected.
High pressure begins to approach our area on Monday making it likely the nicest day of the holiday weekend. Expect high temperatures to be seasonable with temperatures in the mid to upper 70’s across much of the state. Skies are expected to be partly to mostly sunny. There could be the chance of a few isolated thundershowers across the state Monday.
Tuesday and Wednesday we will likely see the return of above average temperatures as well as increased humidity. Tuesday expect high temperatures potentially in the 80’s and lower 90’s, especially across the southern half of the state. For Wednesday, we could see another warm day; however, there likely will be a front over our area making high temperatures hard to predict at this time. With the front in the area, we will likely be unsettled heading into the middle and later half of the upcoming week with chances for showers and thunderstorms.
