WET COUPLE OF DAYS AHEAD
Clouds are streaming in from the south, as an area of low pressure moves towards the northeast. It will track to the North Carolina coast and lift northward through the day Tuesday. It will spread very light precipitation in the later part of the morning drive. With morning lows in the upper 20s to low 30s, and a marginal thermal profile in the upper levels, a wintry mix is possible before changing to light rain.

ME Out The Door - AM

Any wintry mix will be brief. Precipitation overall will be light, and with a persistent easterly flow, drizzle and clouds will be with us much of the day. We get a break from the light rain in the late afternoon and evening. Highs will be held to near 40 degrees. A more significant low pressure system takes shape over Texas, deepens and tracks towards the Ohio Valley Wednesday.

ME Futurecast with Isobars

With the low to our west, we remain on the mild side of the system; therefore temperatures will slowly climb through the 40s Wednesday, and reach the 50s by early Thursday. Rainfall with this system may approach an inch or more in places before it moves out. Weather remains unsettled, with a rain or snow chance for Thursday.

HEADING INTO THE WEEKEND
High pressure builds in for Friday bringing dry and sunny weather. Colder air will settle in for Friday. After morning lows in the 20s, high temperatures will struggle to reach the mid and upper 30s. We rebound with milder temperatures heading the weekend. Morning lows will be cold Saturday, but we return to the 40s both Saturday and Sunday. A front approaches Sunday morning but lifts back to the north as a warm front quickly only producing clouds. Low pressure will drag a cold front through Monday and bring a threat for showers to start the week. Check social media: Facebook and Twitter, and Fox43.com, for the latest weather forecast.
