Long after it devastated the Texas coast, Hurricane Harvey weakened to a tropical storm and moved northeast. In fact, it moved so far northeast, that it’s arriving in Maine today. The remnants of Harvey will be the primary influence on our weather today and its remnant tropical moisture will bring some much-needed rains to the area this afternoon. Dry air is in place, which means that while precipitation is falling from the sky, it’s not making it to the ground. This will likely continue until around noon at which point we’ll start to see some sustained showers. The rain will go off and on through the afternoon before tapering off this evening. Expect high temperatures to be limited to the upper 50’s as winds blow straight in off the cold Gulf of Maine.
Much better weather is expected for tomorrow.
