Even though the temperatures weren't quite as cold today, it was still really uncomfortable today due to a gusty, icy northerly wind which produced wind chills below zero for much of the day.
Low pressure tracking east will stay to our south over the next 18 hours, but we will catch the northern edge of the cloud cover, so expect increasing clouds tonight. After a cloudy start Saturday, look for a brighter sky developing along with a returning cold northerly wind. Plenty of sunshine and cold temperatures for Sunday, then finally some milder air will begin to flow into Maine Monday and especially Tuesday. High pressure sliding to our east after the weekend will help to create the southerly flow responsible for our milder temperatures. In fact, due to the mild air in place, precipitation falling in our neighborhoods around mid-week will likely feature some rain drops instead of snowflakes! Colder air will move back into Maine toward the end of the week.
