High pressure, which was to our west yesterday, is now centered over Maine. Due to the clockwise flow of winds around high pressure, our winds aloft are out of the southeast and south. Calm winds at the surface, in combination with the clear skies, have dropped temperatures back into the low 20s early this morning. Highs, however, should reach near 50º as the sun and southerly breeze combine to bring us back towards normal April temperatures. It will remain mostly clear overnight as well, though some areas of fog may try to form towards dawn. Lows will be near 30º. Friday likewise looks pleasant, with sun and clouds and a high in the mid 50s. A weak front will pass through Friday night with showers and maybe a rumble of thunder. There is some chance that clouds and showers will linger into Saturday morning, but that is uncertain at this time. Saturday afternoon should be sunny with highs in the low 50s.
Some even better weather will come in for Easter Sunday and Monday. Both days look sunny and warm. Sunday's highs should be in the low 60s, while Monday will push into the mid 60s or higher. This warm up will be due in part to an approaching storm system and the southerly winds ahead of it. This will move through on Tuesday with showers and maybe a few thunderstorms. Temperatures will fall a bit behind the front, with highs somewhere in the 40s or 50s for Wednesday. There are some indications that it will warm right back up behind this though as we head into late April.
