    Wednesday: Sun & clouds, rain ending in Maine. High in the 40s north, 50s south. Wednesday Night: Partial clearing, lows near 40. Thursday: Mostly sunny, high in the 50s. (Published Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2016)

    A mild and dry stretch of weather for New England.

    With the exception of Maine, where showers continue this afternoon, most of New England has a mixture of sun and clouds with pleasant temperatures in the 50s.

    The storm system that dropped up to 2 inches of rain overnight, is now weakening as it pushes off Eastern Maine by Sunset.

    Partial clearing tonight, with patchy fog, low temperature near 40°.

    A broad area of high pressure should keep us mild and to dry for our Thursday and Friday, with plenty of sunshine and high temperatures near 60° inland, cooler at the coast and in the hills.

    We have a squeeze play this weekend as two storms approach. One storm over the Midwest will have snow over the northern great lakes, and another storm with gale force wind and rain southeast of Nantucket.

    The result is a mostly dry Saturday, with the showers developing at night, highs Saturday again in the 50s.

    Sunday is going to be quite changeable, we may have some rain showers in the east, with snow showers in the west.

    There is even a chance of a squall line developing and moving from west to east, with the rain changing to snow showers for a brief time just about anywhere. High temperatures on Sunday will be in the 50s in Maine, but the rest of us will see temperatures cooling from the 40s into the 30s during the afternoon. Wind will be variable, but could increase to 30-40 mph from the west by Sunset.

    Snow showers will continue in the mountains of western and northern New England Sunday night and Monday, otherwise clearing skies and cold.

    Low temperatures Monday morning will be in the 20s, with wind gusting 30 to 40 mph.

    Sunny weather is likely Monday and Tuesday, becoming less windy with high temperatures near 40°.

    The early call for next week is a dry Wednesday, high temperature in the 40s, chance of rain, snow and wind on Thanksgiving Day.
