Clouds and scattered showers will dampen Memorial Day weekend in Maine this year, although the holiday weekend weather will be a sharp contrast from conditions on either side of it.

Sunny, hot weather on Friday with temperatures in the upper 80s will change overnight to cloud cover that will persist through Monday, according to the National Weather Service. Scattered showers are predicted to fall overnight Friday after 1 a.m., the service said.

Rain has a 30 percent chance of falling on the Bangor area Saturday morning, before 11 a.m., according to the weather service. A slightly greater chance of rain will threaten the region on Monday, especially between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., and after 8 p.m. No rain is predicted for Sunday.

Temperatures throughout the long weekend will be mildly warm and with a light breeze, the weather service said. The days will be in the mid-70s on Saturday, and the mid-60s on Sunday and Monday, with the thermometer dipping into the mid-40s at night, the service said.

As Mainers head back to work on Tuesday, they’ll be greeted by sunny skies and hot weather that’s expected to last through the week. The forecast for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in Bangor calls for sunshine and temperatures in the mid-70s and mid-80s, according to the weather service.
