Today we are rid of that pesky upper level low that's had been bringing us unsettled conditions since Easter Sunday. That storm system was finally shoved out of the upper atmosphere last night and Maine will benefit in the form of two sunny and pleasant days.
High pressure has built in from the west this morning and will deflect all incoming storm systems for the next 48 hours. (By the way, if you've ever lived in NH or MA you must know Al Kaprielian. He was a wacky weatherman famous for saying "HIGHHHHH pressure" in a squeaky voice. It still sticks in my head to this day. If you'd like it to stick in yours, watch this video of his forecast) As a result look for mostly sunny conditions today from start to finish. Temperatures will warm up nicely with an ever improving sun angle at work. Highs will be in the upper 50s in most spots with some lower 60s across southwestern Maine and New Hampshire.
Tonight will be clear and cool with lows dropping below freezing across the interior.
Saturday will be very similar to today with just a FEW more clouds, especially in the afternoon. Still, it will be pleasant and dry with highs reaching the mid to upper 60s.
A warm front will nose into New England on Saturday night and trigger some showers and maybe a rumble of thunder. The activity looks fairly scattered at the moment, at least for Maine as the bulk of the moisture will be situated to our south.
Sunday morning will feature some left over showers as the frontal boundary struggles northward. Overall though, I don't think Sunday will turn out too poorly with a decent dose of afternoon sunshine likely once the front shifts into northern Maine.
I will admit, it's difficult to predict warm front movement during spring time in Maine. Computer models are notorious for convincing us that the front will cleanly pass through...only to have cooler air and a sea breeze push back the advance of the warmer boundary.
That being said, I think this front will be able to push northward by Sunday afternoon putting us in the "warm sector." THAT will push Maine into the 70s and low 80s for Monday afternoon. So plan for a one day summer tease to begin the work week.
Have a good one and enjoy this HIGHHHH PRESSUREEE!
