April Showers This Week

Hello everyone!

Here’s a quick look at the upcoming week of weather for Southern/Western Maine. Unfortunately I don’t have the time to fully dive into all the cool weather this week but here’s the quick overview to give an idea of what’s to come.

The week likely is bookended by rain events, one coming tomorrow into Tuesday and the other Friday-TBD. The late week rain is brought to you by a cutoff retrograding low. This means that it is cut off from the westerly winds aloft that usually push storms along quickly. The long and the short of it is that after a dry and pleasant midweek, the late week period into next weekend looks wet and cool as low pressure lingers nearby. The GFS model I use for these graphics holds the low just offshore but based on the block over Greenland, I think we get at least some rain from this. More updates (hopefully, depending on the schedule) this week.
