Wet, Blustery & Raw Next Few Days

Chris Ewing

Updated 1 month ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The combination of high pressure parked over central Quebec and the intensifying storm system along of the Mid-Atlantic Coastline will combine to bring a prolonged period of rain and wind to our region. Rain will continue to fall across Maine today and Thursday as winds both at the surface and aloft continue to pull moisture into New England from the Atlantic Ocean. At times the rain will fall heavily throughout the Pine Tree State, beginning later today and likely continuing right into Friday morning. By the time the rain taper off later Friday much of our area will have received between 2 and 4″, with possibly a bit more over some of the hillier locations of Maine.

Chilly but Sunny Today

Jessica Conley

Updated 1 month ago

After a chilly start to the day today, it’ll be able to warm up into the mid-40s and low 50s under a mix of sun and clouds. It’ll stay breezy today too. Tuesday we’ll see increasing clouds with temps warming up a bit, into the low to mid 50s. We could see a few showers in far northern Maine Tuesday night. Clouds, rain, and wind move in for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday as a low pressure system gets stuck just off the coast. It will essentially be blocked by a high pressure system to our north and east and just continue to pull moisture from the Atlantic and deposit it into our area. It’s a nor’easter set-up but without temps cold enough to support snow (I know, I’m super bummed too). It looks like it will be a stormy couple of days with plenty of wind and rain. Models putting out anywhere from 2″ to 3.5″ of rain from Tuesday night though Friday morning. Just think what that could have been in snow.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

The cold front that brought us all the rain last night and this morning has pretty much cleared the state as of noontime, pushing the steadier and heavier rain to the north and east of the state. Upper level energy coming across the state this afternoon will keep us under the gun for a few scattered showers mainly north of Bangor. Otherwise, drier air moving in behind the departing cold front will allow things to dry out and skies to continue to brighten up as the afternoon progresses. Above average temperatures will continue today with highs in the mid-60s to around 70°.
