Today will feature more in the way of unsettled weather as the upper-level low responsible for storms on Sunday and yesterday’s soaking rain remains close by. As of 5:15 AM, the steadiest rain is located over central and northern parts of the area from western Cumberland County north towards Sugarloaf. Expect new showers to pop up as we head throughout the day and temps drift slowly upward in response to whatever remnant energy from the sun isn’t reflected by thick cloud cover.
Here’s one model depiction of what the radar might look like this afternoon. Note that shower activity will be concentrated away from the coast where the best instability will develop. At this point, it doesn’t look like any of these showers will be strong enough to produce severe weather, but a few rumbles of thunder are possible.
Temps today will remain on the cooler side thanks to the cold air associated with the upper-level low and abundant cloud cover. Expect highs within a few degrees of 70 across the area. The northern mountains and Midcoast peninsulas will be coolest around 65.
