St. John Valley weather for May 29-June 4, 2019
ST. JOHN VALLEY, Maine — Low pressure will track into the Atlantic southeast of Cape Cod Wednesday morning, but will have little impact on northern Maine’s weather as high pressure east of Nova Scotia and a weak ridge to the southwest controls the Valley’s weather. Clouds increase Wednesday night as a cold front moves down from the northwest producing a chance for rain tonight tapering to showers Thursday. Showers continue as the cold front slowly moves through Thursday into Friday. High pressure brings decreased clouds and reduced chances for showers Friday.
A closed upper-low will spin over eastern Canada/northern New England through about the middle of next week keeping a chance for showers in the forecast daily for the period. A weak cold front moves through Saturday into Sunday with high pressure nosing in some early next week; however, moisture circulating around the upper-low will persist for the period. Anomalously cool air aloft will translate to cooler than normal temperatures for the region through midweek.
