Northern New England is getting a rare treat: Sunlight and warmth.

The National Weather Service says it’s going to be sunny Tuesday with temperatures approaching 70 across Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. By Thursday, it’ll approach 90 in parts of the region.

It’ll be a dramatic turnaround after several weeks of gloomy weather.

Tom Hawley from the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine, says there’s been either rain or a trace of rain on 12 of the first 14 days of the month in Portland, Maine.
