There will be plenty of sunshine on Thursday and with temperatures in the 30s it should turn out to be the coldest day of the week.

A cold front moved off the Maine coast this morning and by the afternoon strong northwest winds were driving much colder air into northern New England. Temperatures that were in the 50s this morning had fallen into the 30s by 6 PM and should have no problem reaching the 20s tonight. A ridge of high pressure will move our way for Thursday bringing mostly sunny skies with a light northwest wind. I expect temperatures to top out in the mid to upper 30s which is slightly below normal for the time of year. The high is going to move east of us on Friday setting up a southerly flow of warmer air that should get us back above 40 degrees. Unfortunately the transition to warmer weather will result in more clouds on Friday and possibly some light precipitation Friday night which could fall as a mix of rain or snow. The snow should pretty much be confined to the higher elevations. An approaching cold front could bring more rain showers on Saturday then behind the front a ridge of high pressure is going to try and clear us out for Sunday. The models are not exactly 100% on board with this right now but there is hope for the second half of the weekend.
