Apex Weather

St. John Valley weather for Nov. 1-7

High pressure will bring partly cloudy to mostly clear skies to the Valley Wednesday morning. Clouds increase as the day progresses as a low-pressure system near the Great Lakes lifts a warm front across the region, producing a chance for showers by early Thursday. Rain continues Thursday afternoon into Friday as a cold front moves through the region. Canadian high pressure introduces much colder air and partly cloudy skies for Saturday and Sunday as it moves across the region. Sunday night, an approaching cold front brings some snow showers to northern Maine which transition to rain showers by Monday afternoon. Showers continue into Tuesday morning before skies gradually clear over the course of the day as another ridge of high pressure builds in.
