With melting snow plus the heavy rain, the National Weather Service has issued a Flood watch until Sunday evening.
From the TV 5 Forecast Center:
Clouds and scattered showers stick around into Saturday with highs again warming into the mid-40s to low 50s.
A bit of unsettled weather on the way.
Happy Friday everyone!
From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:
A storm sliding east across southern Quebec tonight will pull a weak cold front south through Maine later tonight and early Friday before becoming stationary over Southern New England.
Low pressure is forecast to pass to our north today, keeping us on the milder side of the system.
A southerly breeze will continue to usher the milder than normal conditions into Maine today as high temps reach the 40s to low 50s this afternoon all across the Pine Tree State.
We’ll see variably cloudy skies and mild temperatures for the remainder of our Wednesday.
The weather across the Northeast and in fact most of the lower 48 will run milder than normal the next few days as the arctic air has receded up into northern parts of Canada.
Skies will turn partly sunny this afternoon as low pressure approaches from the west.
After a very active weather pattern the past two week the conditions across Maine will be rather tranquil and unseasonably mild this week.
High pressure will build into the area over the next 24-48 hours giving us a nice start to the week.
Our Monday will feature partly to mostly sunny skies and highs closer to average for this time of year, in the upper 20s to mid-30s.
A mild night is going to give a good jumping off point heading into Sunday.
For a change the weather across Maine will be rather tranquil over the next several days as the ridge of high pressure that brought the fair skies to our region yesterday controls the conditions here right through the weekend.
Beautiful weather this afternoon as high pressure builds in from the west.
The last in a series of storms that has brought over three feet of snow to much of Maine over the past ten days continues to lift up towards Newfoundland.
Snow will taper off from west to east this morning, followed by a quiet stretch of weather for the next several days as high pressure builds into the Northeast.
Any lingering snow over eastern areas will wind down early this afternoon.
Sometimes things can change in a short amount of time and that is exactly what is happening as we speak.
