Today will feature a pretty straightforward weather pattern- it’s one we’ve seen too many times to count. A cold front passed through overnight and thus we’re left with northwesterly winds today. You know what that means! Upslope/downslope! The mountains are reporting cloudy skies this morning and that will continue throughout the day while the coast enjoys full sun. Highs in the north will struggle to reach the 70 degree mark while highs in the south will soar into the low/mid 80’s. I can’t rule out a stray upslope shower in the mountains this afternoon but otherwise things look mostly dry.
Swells from Hurricane Gert will be arriving today from the SSE. The biggest waves will be at south facing beaches along the midcoast with smaller waves expected south of Portland. Beware of the rip current risk if you’re headed out to play in the waves.
