The rain will become heavy at times during the overnight hours. One to two inches of rain will likely fall across our region by late tonight/early Sunday morning. The combination of heavy rain along with melting snow and ice could lead to localized flooding all across the state. A strong southerly breeze may gust to near 50 mph later today and early tonight. The gusty south wind will cause evening temps to continue to climb well up into the 40s across the state.
Slightly cooler air will move back into our region Sunday as the wind shifts into the northwest behind the storms trailing cold front. A few more rain or snow showers may fall Sunday as the cooler air spills back into Maine, but temps will still run a few to several degrees above normal. A weak ridge of high pressure will bring Maine a partly sunny and mild start to the workweek Monday. Another storm may move up the Eastern Seaboard Tuesday or Wednesday and bring more rain or snow back to our region as temps will continue to run above normal. Colder and more seasonable air will return to the Northeast late in the workweek.
