Arthur Moves Out, Sunshine Returns for Sunday

Jessica Conley

Skies will clear out overnight tonight and temps will be able to drop to cooler levels. Overnight lows will fall into the upper 40s and low to mid 50s.

Rainy & Windy Early, Arthur Moves Northeast

Jessica Conley

Updated 3 weeks ago

 

Arthur will be moving northeast into the Eastern Gulf of Maine and by latemorning today,  It will be located either over the Bay of Fundy or western Nova Scotia. Moisture associated with the hurricane will bring periods of heavy rain to especially eastern parts of Maine this morning as the hurricane continues to ride north just to the east of New England Coastline. The exact track of the storm will determine how much rain and wind Maine sees from the hurricane, with much of the state likely picking up 1 to 4” of rain by the time the rain tapers off later today, with the heaviest rain falling over easternmost parts of the state. The expected current track of the storm would keep the very strong near hurricane force winds well offshore as the storm lifts up to our east, but the wind along the coastline could still gust to near 50mph, with inland locals seeing gusts as high as 40mph. The track of the storm will bring large swells and very dangerous rip currents to our coastline today, so it is best to stay out of the ocean. Once again the expected heavy rain could lead to localized flash flooding especially over eastern parts of the state as we begin the weekend.

Rain & Wind to Start Your Weekend

Chris Ewing

Updated 3 weeks ago

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

The cold front that has produced the scattered showers and thundershowers all across New England the past couple of days will continue to slowly push east off the Maine coastline early Saturday. With the front now offshore the wind has kicked around into the north and northwest which is allowing a less humid airmass to begin to filter into our region. While at the same time the front is pushing offshore Hurricane Arthur continues moving northeast into the Eastern Gulf of Maine and by midmorning Saturday it will be located either over the Bay of Fundy or western Nova Scotia. Moisture associated with the remains of Hurricane Arthur will bring periods of heavy rain to especially eastern parts of Maine through Saturday morning as the hurricane continues to ride north just to the east of New England Coastline. The exact track of the storm will determine how much rain and wind Maine sees from the hurricane, with much of the state likely picking up 1 to 5” of rain by the time the rain tapers off later Saturday, with the heaviest rain falling over easternmost parts of the state. The expected current track of the storm would keep the very strong near hurricane force winds well offshore as the storm lifts up to our east, but the wind along the coastline could still gust to near 50mph, with inland locals seeing gusts as high as 40mph. 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.

The cold front that has produced the scattered showers and thundershowers all across New England the past couple of days will continue to slowly push east off the Maine coastline tonight. As the front slips offshore tonight the wind will kick around into the north and northwest which will allow a less humid airmass to begin to filter into our region.

Scattered Showers & T’storms Today, Steadier & Heavier Rain Later Today and Tonight

Todd Simcox

Updated 3 weeks ago

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A cold front will cross the state during the day today, once again bringing us some scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the day. Thunderstorms are not expected to become severe but will be accompanied by heavy downpours. Temperatures will be a bit cooler today with highs in the 70s to near 80° and humidity will remain high. Steadier, heavier rain associated with Hurricane Arthur will begin to spread into the area from south to north later this afternoon and this evening. Rain will fall heavily at times tonight with the heaviest rain falling over Hancock and Washington counties. The latest track of Hurricane Arthur is a bit further west than previously forecast which means that we have a better chance of seeing some tropical storm force winds (39 MPH or greater) over Hancock and Washington counties tonight and early Saturday. That being said, based on this latest track it looks like winds could gust to 50 MPH Downeast and up to 30 MPH elsewhere.

Humid with Scattered Showers and Storms Today

Chris Ewing

Updated 3 weeks 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.

Warm & Muggy, with Scattered Storms Wednesday

Chris Ewing

Updated 4 weeks 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 weeks 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.

Todd Simcox

Updated 4 weeks 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.
