Unfortunately the Beach to Beacon start line isn’t exactly a great place for weather analysis so this morning’s post will be brief despite our active weather. For a complete, in depth look at the forecast, please refer back to last night’s discussion. The forecast remains more or less unchanged.
A cold front is draped across the St Lawrence valley this morning and will be moving in our direction today. Out ahead of it, showers and storms will develop, a few of which could be severe. Some showers are already ongoing across the area in association with a lead disturbance aloft. The main round of storms should begin developing over the mountains around midday before they move SE to the coast by early evening. Highs today will be toasty in the mid to upper 80’s for most, some lower 80’s along the midcoast and in the northern mountains. Dew points near 70 will make it feel even warmer. Skies will feature a mix of sun and clouds through the day.
I’ll likely have more this afternoon here and will definitely be analyzing the situation on Twitter @JackSillin
Also to note: I won’t have an update tomorrow morning as I will be in Millinocket on my way to the top of Katahdin.
