It’s that time of year again – pumpkin everything, beautiful foliage, frolicking in the leaves, and of course the good old fashioned chilly rain. That’s what we get the pleasure of dealing with today.

Rain looks to overspread the area west to east this morning with everyone seeing raindrops by around 8:30 or 9 AM. Rain will be light to moderate for the most part but any southern areas that poke into the warm sector stand the chance for some thunderstorms and thus heavier rain. Gusty winds are also likely with this storm with the greatest risk south in any thunderstorms. Heavier downpours are the mirror mechanism that reflects the strong winds aloft down towards the surface so in any heavier showers region wide, gusty winds are a possibility.
A total of a half inch to an inch of rain is likely with the highest amounts up north on the south facing slopes. Winds could gust to 30mph in the strongest showers. Temps will be in the low to mid 50’s for most with areas south of Kittery seeing low to mid 60’s as they will be in the warm sector thus seeing the most rain.
