Humid with Scattered Showers and Storms Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A slow moving cold front will drift east through New England today. The front will interact with the very tropical aimass sitting on top of our region to bring on and off showers and thundershowers to Maine throughout the day. The front will gradually push offshore later today and early tonight and the wind will kick around into the north and northwest which will allow a less humid airmass to begin to filter into our region. At the same time the front is pushing offshore Hurricane Arthur will be moving northeast off the Mid-Atlantic Coastline. Moisture pushing north ahead of the hurricane will likely bring a period of heavy rain to especially eastern parts of Maine tonight and Saturday morning as the hurricane slides up to our east and moves into Nova Scotia. The exact track of the storm will determine how much rain and wind Maine sees from the hurricane, with eastern parts of the state likely picking up 1 to 4″ of rain tonight and Saturday morning, with lesser amounts being found west of the Bangor region. The expected current track would keep the very strong near hurricane winds well offshore tonight and Saturday morning, but a track closer to the New England coastline than is currently projected would bring some of the storm’s stronger winds into eastern Maine. The track of the storm will bring large swells and very dangerous rip currents to our coastline Saturday, so it is best to stay out of the ocean. Once again the expected heavy rain could lead to localized flooding over eastern parts of the state as we begin the weekend.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

We have a warm and humid afternoon ahead with scattered showers and thunderstorms expected to develop mid-late afternoon. Some of the thunderstorms could be strong to severe with heavy downpours, frequent lightning, damaging winds and hail. Temperatures will climb to the mid to upper 70s along the coast and low to mid-80s inland for highs this afternoon. Low pressure will drag a cold front towards the area tonight giving us a chance for some showers and thunderstorms tonight as well with the most numerous showers and thunderstorms falling to the north and west of Bangor.

Warm & Muggy, with Scattered Storms Wednesday

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The ridge of high pressure currently centered east of the Mid-Atlantic Coastline will continue to pull a very warm and muggy airmass into our region tomorrow as the south to southwest wind continues all across New England. Once again the southerly breeze will hold temps along the coastline of Maine in the mid 70s to low 80s, while inland temps climb into the 80s to near 90. The combination of the warm temps and the very humid air will make it feel like it’s in the 90s over interior parts of Maine Wednesday.  A disturbance aloft approaching New England later tomorrow will likely kick off some scattered strong thundershowers during the afternoon and evening hours, with the bulk of the storms likely occurring over western parts of the state.

Warm & Muggy the Next Few Days

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The ridge of high pressure that has produced the mostly sunny and warm weather the past several days will continue to bring sunshine to our region today. Humidity levels will continue to climb across the Northeast today as the high slowly drifts east near Bermuda. The southwest breeze on the backside of the high will continue to transport muggy air into New England right through Wednesday. The south to southwest breeze the next couple of days will keep the temperatures running above normal in our region as highs reach the 80s to low 90s inland but hold in the upper 70s to low 80s along the immediate coastline. There may be an isolated thundershower or two mainly over the western mountains today but otherwise our region should remain rain free.

Updated 4 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure, which brought us a beautiful weekend, will move to our east today. With the high to our east, we’ll see southwest winds across New England ushering some higher humidity into the region. We’ll see a good deal of sunshine today with highs reaching the mid to upper 80s over the interior and near 80° along the coast due to an onshore wind. A weak upper level disturbance is forecast to move through the area this afternoon and could touch off a widely scattered shower or thunderstorm with the best chance being over areas north and west of Bangor. Any showers and thunderstorms that develop will wind down shortly after sunset. Skies will average clear to partly cloudy tonight with lows mainly in the 60s.

It will stay warm for the next several days with the high pressure system helping to filter in warm air from the south and west. Temperatures at the coast will be about ten degrees cooler than the temps inland. Inland locations will be able to make it into the mid to upper 80s with coastal spots in the mid to upper 70s for the first half of the week.
By tonight clouds start to move in ahead of a cold front that will eventually cross the area. We’ll see some showers for the day on Tuesday with some thunderstorms possible as well. Wednesday will feature a mix of sun and clouds with a chance for afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms again. Thursday will be similar, with slightly cooler temps. By Friday we’re back into the upper 70s and low 80s.

Rain Tapers Off This Morning, Gradually Drying Out This Afternoon

Todd Simcox

Updated 4 months ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure will move along a stalled out cold front this morning and off to our east this afternoon. As the storm moves out, rain will taper to scattered showers from west to east across the state this morning through early afternoon. Northerly winds will usher drier air into the region this afternoon which will allow skies to begin to clear out over the northern half of the state with skies expected to become partly sunny while the remainder of the state sees plenty of clouds with a few sunny breaks possible. Temperatures will be a bit below average today with highs in the mid-60s to around 70°. Any lingering clouds will clear out tonight as high pressure builds into the area. Northerly winds will continue to usher drier, more comfortable air into the region which will make for a cooler and more comfortable night. Temperatures will drop to the mid-40s to low 50s for nighttime lows.

Rain Tapering Off This Morning

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

A cold front will continue to slowly drift south through Maine early today. High pressure located over central Ontario will build southeast and push the front off to our south later today, causing the showers to taper off during the day and the skies across Maine to clear during the evening hours. The combination of clouds, leftover showers and a northeast breeze will hold today’s high temps to the upper 60s to low 70s. The high over Ontario will gradually build towards the Northeast Friday and bring partly to mostly sunny skies to New England as we end the workweek. The high temps on Friday will range from the upper 70s to low 80s. The high will continue to build right on top of the Northeast during the weekend and early next week and that will help bring mostly sunny skies to our region with temps climbing into the 80s across all of interior Maine Saturday through Monday. Humidity levels will gradually climb as we move through the middle of next week and will cause the risk of showers and thundershowers to increase throughout New England.

Variably Cloudy & Becoming More Humid Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The ridge of high pressure that brought the sunny and pleasant weather to Maine today will slowly drift off to the southeast of New England today. A southwest breeze on the backside of the high will help gradually pull more humid air into our region as we move through today. The combination of the more humid airmass and a slowly approaching cold front from the north will cause skies to range from partly to mostly cloudy today. Northern parts of Maine will likely see some scattered showers and storms develop later today due to the approaching front, but the rest of the state won’t see much in the way of showers and thundershowers till later tonight or Wednesday. High temps today will range from near 70 along the coast and over the far north to the mid 70s to low 80s elsewhere across Maine.
