PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (WAGM) – Hello everyone and happy Thursday. Yesterday we started the morning with temperatures in the 60’s with a few rain showers. We were actually one of the hottest places in the northeast. The rain finally cleared up and we were left with clear skies. This caused our overnight lows to drop into the upper 30s and 40s across the region. That’s about a 20 degree difference from this time yesterday morning.
Our current weather pattern includes high pressure building in the region and that is what will bring us dry sunny weather throughout the weekend. There is a low pressure system to the west, but it has weakened in recent hours. Most of the impacts we will see from this system will be a few cloudy spots to the west leading into the afternoon. I don’t expect it to bother the sun. Today’s highs will make a throwback to the 50s, making it feel like fall. This is where we had seen our overnight lows for the past two days. You’ll want the lightweight jacket this afternoon. By the time we enter the night hours, we’ll be back in the mid-upper 30s. I wouldn’t rule out the possibility of some places reaching freezing point. There will likely be uneven frost on grassy surfaces.
Tomorrow will feature another day with highs in the 50s and we will see mostly sunny skies. It’s worth mentioning that this will be a brief throwback to the 50s because by the time we get to the weekend we’ll be back in the 60s. Sunday is my favorite day of the weekend due to the highs slightly warmer, but both days will be very sunny. Once we get there around Monday, we are watching for our next chance of rain in the county. I expect the clouds to rise quite quickly overnight Sunday. Overnight global lows will also be on the warming trend into the 40s.
