PORTLAND, Maine — Download the NEWS CENTER Maine app for updates based on your location.

This is Maine. It gets cold. However, this is a different type of cold. Frenchville, Maine recorded a wind chill of negative 60 degrees overnight, Portland, Maine was at -45. These are all-time records and even though wind chills are not an official measurement that is rigorously kept, they are still some of the coldest temps in Maine history.

It will be cold today, even with the sun coming out Caribou isn’t expected to make it above freezing. However, it won’t be as cold Saturday night into Sunday. As a matter of fact a warm front will bring much milder air into the region by Sunday with above freezing temps on the way.

Next week looks even warmer with 40s returning to the forecast statewide. Precipitation will be light on Tuesday with more significant precipitation by late-week. Winter isn’t over, but the worst might be.

Keep checking back for updates.
