Saturday 7:00am.. A slow moving cold front was located north-south across Maine this morning and will move eastward to lie through the Gulf of St Lawrence overnight tonight. Weak low pressure will track northward along the front and through the Maritimes on Sunday then high pressure builds in for Monday. Long range models are still not coming together on mid week weather but looks like a coastal low pressure system will approach the region Tuesday evening into Wednesday.

High pressure builds in for Thursday and yet another coastal low pressure system will be threatening the region on Friday.
