From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

The heaviest rain has shifted east of the state and we’ll hang on to clouds and some scattered showers through the afternoon and evening hours. The strongest winds have shifted east too so expect wind speeds averaging between 5-15 MPH for the remainder of the day. The National Weather Service continues the Flood Watch for Southern Piscataquis, Central and Southern Penobscot, Hancock and Washington Counties through late tonight to account for the potential of some minor flooding especially in poor drainage areas and some area rivers and streams as a result of the combination of snowmelt and rainfall. Despite the clouds and rain, temperatures will still reach the upper 40s to mid-50s for highs. Any lingering showers will wind down early tonight followed by clearing skies late.

Blustery with Rain Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Low pressure will move up into southwestern Quebec tomorrow afternoon. With the storm passing up to our west this morning, Maine will be on the milder side of the storm and that means most if not all the precipitation will fall as rain across the Pine Tree State. Rainfall will likely range from .50″ to 1.5″ across our area and that along with melting snow could lead to some localized flooding, especially near streams and rivers. There is also the possibility of ice jams forming on some of the rivers and streams up north as the milder air and rain help break up some of the thick ice that still covers those waterways. A gusty southerly wind will pull a rather mild airmass into New England Tuesday and despite clouds and rain showers temperatures will climb into the upper 40s to mid 50s in our region.

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will slide through the area today giving us a beautiful start to the work week. We’ll see partly to mostly sunny skies today with highs topping off in the 50s to near 60°. As the area of high pressure slides to our east this afternoon, we’ll see clouds increasing mid-late afternoon as our next storm approaches from the south and west. Clouds will continue to thicken up early tonight followed by precipitation moving after midnight. It will be cold enough for the precipitation to start as some snow and/or mix for the Greenville area to Millinocket and points north while the remainder of the state sees plain rain. We could see a slushy inch or two of accumulation in spots by daybreak.

Sun to Increasing Clouds Late Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 months ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

High pressure along the Mid-Atlantic coastline will bring fair and pleasant weather to our region today as it continues to slip off towards the east. High temps today will reach the upper 40s to mid 50s from north to south, with an afternoon seabreeze cooling the temps a bit along the shoreline. As the high moves off to our east clouds ahead of our next storm system will begin to invade our area later this afternoon and evening. The next storm will move from the Tennessee River Valley this evening up into southwestern Quebec Tuesday evening. Maine will be on the milder side of the storm as it passes up to our west and that means most if not all the precipitation will fall as rain across our region later tonight and part of Tuesday. Rainfall will likely range from .50″ to 1.5″ across our area and that along with melting snow could lead to some localized flooding, especially near streams and rivers. Stay tuned to the latest forecast regarding possible flooding. A gusty southerly wind will pull a rather mild airmass into New England Tuesday and despite clouds and rain showers temperatures will climb into the upper 40s to mid 50s in our region.
