Another Chance For Showers and Storms Today Before Lower Humidity Tomorrow

Arielle Whooley

From the WABI-TV5 & CW Forecast Center:

 

Today is going to be a repeat of yesterday, showers and storms will stay scattered throughout Maine during the day. Some storms this afternoon could be on the strong side with gusty winds, heavy downpours that could produce localized flooding, dangerous lightning and hail. Between the clouds and showers temps will struggle to get out of the upper 60s to mid 70s, humidity levels will remain high so despite the cooler temps it will still feel pretty uncomfortable. Tonight, showers and storms will come to an end with mostly cloudy skies and light winds left behind patchy dense fog will form late tonight and early Thursday morning. Overnight lows will drop back into the mid 50s to low 60s.

 

The cold front clears Maine by Thursday and we will see a mix of sun and clouds, lower humidity levels and temps reaching back into the mid 70s to low 80s. Heading into the holiday weekend, we will see sunshine for Friday with high climbing into the low 70s to low 80s.  By Saturday our next chance of scattered showers and storms will move into Maine, with highs staying mild in the low 70s to low 80s. Sunday temps will be just a bit cooler in the mid 60s to mid 70s but the sunshine will return for the holiday weekend.

 

Wednesday: Scattered showers & storms likely, highs in the upper 60s to mid 70s. Winds will be out of the south around 8MPH.

 

Tonight: Showers ending, mostly cloudy skies. Winds will be light with overnight lows in the mid 50s to low 60s. Watch for patchy dense fog.

 

Thursday: Mix of sun & clouds, with highs in the mid 70s to low 80s.

 

Friday: Mostly sunny with highs in the low 70s to low 80s.

 

Saturday: Partly to mostly cloudy with scattered showers and storms, highs in the low 70s to low 80s.

 

Sunday: Sunny with cooler temps in the mid 60s to mid 70s.
