Today will feature a continuation of last night’s heavy rains and high winds as a strong cold front stalls out over the area. Exactly how far east the front can make it before stalling will determine where the axis of heaviest rain sets up today, as well as if western parts of NH can break into some sunshine before the next storm arrives.
Current model forecasts show the front stalling across the eastern part of the area, from Augusta down towards Portland. This means that areas along and east of that line have the greatest chance to see heavy rains today as showers move north along and ahead of the front. Gusty winds will also continue ahead of the front, meaning that the midcoast is likely to see another day of 30-40 mph gusts.
Temps will remain mild region wide today with highs ranging through the 60’s.
Another storm will move north along the front tonight, bringing an additional round of heavy rain and gusty winds tomorrow before improving weather sets in for Friday.
