Mild, Sunny, and Quite Dry Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature mild temps, sunny skies, and the arrival of a very dry airmass as northwesterly flow takes over behind yesterday’s cold front. Despite the cooler airmass moving in our direction, downsloping and heating from the strong April sun will push temps solidly above 60 for most of the coastal plain. A sea breeze will try to form but should be held at bay by the northwesterly synoptic flow. With that in mind, even the coastline should be pretty warm perhaps with the exception of the Midcoast peninsulas (Boothbay-Rockland especially). Cooler temps in the mid 40s will be found up in the mountains where some upsloping is possible especially this morning. The final notable feature of today’s weather will be just how dry the air will be. Dew points should drop to around 10-15 while surface temps are in the low/mid 60s. If you head outside today, remember to bring some extra chapstick. Otherwise, be aware that fire danger will be high today especially southeast of the mountains.
