Today will feature breezy NW winds which will result in an upslope/downslope pattern setting up across the region. Deep low level moisture remains across the entire area which is fueling a few leftover upslope showers across the mountains this morning. A drier airmass lurks to our NW across Southern Canada and as that drier air works in, both the upslope clouds and showers will slowly evaporate leaving mainly sunny skies for all by evening. Highs will range from the low 70’s under the clouds in the mountains to the mid 80’s under the sun along the coast. NW winds could get breezy at times with gusts to 25 mph possible. These winds will keep any sea breeze at bay.
I’ll have more on the chance for isolated showers tomorrow as well as another look at the threat for heavy rain in this afternoon’s update.
Just as a reminder, I’ll be speaking at the Freeport Community Library at 6:30 this evening about Maine weather and a couple of other weather-related topics such as weather apps and what you can do to help meteorologists make better forecasts. For more info, check out the FB event page the folks at the library set up. I hope to see you there!
