BANGOR, Maine (WABI) – A disturbance approaching the area will give us a chance for a few scattered showers and thunderstorms across northern locales (mainly Greenville to Millinocket northward) this afternoon and evening otherwise expect partly to mostly sunny skies for the remainder of the day. It will be warm this afternoon with highs in the 80s to near 90° but dewpoints will be in the upper 50s to low 60s so humidity levels will feel much better. A disturbance crossing the area tonight will give us a chance for some scattered showers through the overnight hours. Lows tonight will drop back to the low to mid-60s.
A disturbance crossing the state Thursday will give us a chance for some scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the day. Otherwise expect variably cloudy skies Thursday with highs in the upper 70s to mid-80s. The disturbance will be exiting the area Friday but with it still in the vicinity, we could still see a few showers or thunderstorms during the day Friday. Highs on Friday will be in the mid-70s to low 80s. It looks like high pressure will move in just in time for the start of the weekend giving us a great day Saturday with sunshine and highs in the upper 70s to mid-80s. Another disturbance approaching the area later in the weekend will give us a chance for some showers and thunderstorms Sunday. Humidity will be on the rise too. Temperatures Sunday will top off in the mid-70s to low 80s.
