Finally, a break from the humidity!
Dew points will drop significantly behind the cold front, leaving much of Thursday in the 50s and low 60s. Temperatures however will be fairly similar, lingering in the 80s. A secondary cold front will move through on Thursday, so there is a slight chance for a few isolated showers or storms. Any storms that pop-up will mainly be confined to the central highlands and higher elevations. Otherwise, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies along southern and coastal areas throughout the day, with northern regions staying mostly clear through the morning hours. Clouds may move into northern regions as the cold front passes during the day.
Overnight, temperatures will range from the low 50s in northwestern regions to the mid 60s in southern regions with mostly clear skies. Some areas in deeper valleys could even drop into the upper 40s, if skies remain clear.
A beautiful weekend in store for Maine
A warm and dry weekend is in store for Maine! Temperatures will be in the 70s and low 80s throughout the weekend with Sunday mainly in the 70s across the state. Dew points will remain in the 50s and low 60s throughout the state, with even the chance of a few upper 40s in northern regions on Sunday. As high pressure sits over the area, skies will be mostly clear to partly cloudy throughout the weekend. There is a chance for a few pop-up showers or storms on Friday and Saturday, but with the dry air in place, the chance remains low. The high pressure begins to move out on Sunday, so clouds will begin to move back in as a cold front approaches from the west.
Rain moves in for Monday
A cold front will approach the region on Monday, pushing some showers out ahead of it. Rain and some storms will begin to impact the state during the afternoon hours of Monday and will persist overnight into Tuesday. Showers and storms will begin to move out during the afternoon on Tuesday and will be moved out by Tuesday evening. Given the dry conditions that Maine is still in, this system could bring some plentiful rain for Maine.
