Afternoon Showers Possible Again Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature another round of afternoon showers as we go through another cycle of instability developing with daytime heating. Look for mostly sunny skies to push temps into the low to mid 70s for most of the area this morning before clouds and showers bubble up this afternoon. As with the past few days, not everyone will get a shower but those who do may also see a rumble of thunder and some gusty winds. Showers will fade with the setting sun this evening.

Another Round of Afternoon Showers Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature another round of afternoon showers as morning sunshine adds instability to the atmosphere. Generally speaking, there will be more in the way of clouds and showers this afternoon than yesterday afternoon, but even so, not everyone will see rain. Those that do may also see thunder and gusty winds, but there’s not quite enough instability or wind in the upper levels of the atmosphere to support severe weather.

Temps will range from around 60 along the midcoast to around 65 in the mountains to around 75 in the foothills and interior parts of the coastal plain. Just like yesterday, a sea breeze will push fairly far inland during the afternoon with cooler air.

Mild With Afternoon Showers Possible Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature continued mild weather with picture-perfect weather during the morning and more unsettled conditions during the afternoon. Look for high temps to range from near 60 along the Midcoast to the mid 60s up in the mountains to the mid 70s in the foothills. A sea breeze will kick up this afternoon and push cooler air relatively far inland but not after several hours of warmth earlier in the day.

Skies will start out mostly sunny this morning before instability develops this afternoon and clouds start bubbling up. Some of these clouds will grow tall enough to produce some showers and perhaps a rumble or two of thunder. While no severe weather is expected given the lack of wind throughout the atmosphere, some cells could produce brief bouts of gusty wind by generating pockets of cold air from evaporating rain. Not everyone will see storms this afternoon, and the best chance is inland, especially farther northeast towards Augusta/Waterville.

Mild and Somewhat Unsettled Weather Continues Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature mild and somewhat unsettled weather as we see another frontal boundary wander our way from Canada. As with the last few days, skies will start off mostly sunny during the morning with clouds bubbling up during the afternoon. Some of those clouds will bubble up enough to produce a few showers, especially in northern and western parts of the area. High temps will be a bit warmer than yesterday, ranging from the low 60s up north to the mid 70s in central NH.

Another Round of Scattered Afternoon Showers Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature another round of afternoon showers as cool air aloft continues to support some instability near the surface. The best shot for showers today will once again be after noon and north of Portland. Spots near and north of Route 2 may see enough instability for some thunder, small hail, and gusty winds, though no severe weather is expected as of now. High temps will range from the high 50s up north to the high 60s in southern NH. Skies will start out mostly sunny before clouds bubble up during the afternoon.

Afternoon Showers and Storms Possible Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature partly to mostly sunny skies this morning giving way to mostly cloudy skies this afternoon with a chance of pop-up showers and thunderstorms. Not everyone will see rain this afternoon, and the odds are highest north of Portland. Any showers that form could produce some thunder, small hail, and gusty winds given some support from a pocket of colder air aloft.

High temps will range from around 50 up north to around 60 in the south. Westerly winds will keep the sea breeze at bay allowing for mild air to push all the way to the coastline.

A Bit Unsettled Today

Hello everyone!

Today won’t be picture-perfect, at least not for the whole day, but it won’t exactly be bad either. A weak storm system is sliding off of Cape Cod this morning and clouds/a few showers are still lingering near the coast as a result. Those clouds will follow the storm off towards Nova Scotia this morning and by mid/late morning, skies should be mostly sunny across the area with temps rising into the low/mid 60s for most.

This afternoon, that sunshine combined with the pocket of cool air aloft that is supporting the aforementioned storm will produce a bit of instability in the lower atmosphere. The result will be an increase in clouds and pop-up showers. The best chance for a few mid-afternoon raindrops will be up in the foothills and mountains as a sea breeze will help stabilize the coast a bit. That said, I’m not sure a brief shower can entirely be ruled out anywhere except perhaps for the Camden/Rockport area where the marine influence will be strongest and the morning clouds slowest to depart.

Generally Nice Spring Weather Today

Hello everyone and happy Mother’s Day!

Today looks pretty good weather-wise as we enjoy high pressure ahead of our next storm system slowly approaching from the west. Look for skies to start out mostly sunny this morning before some clouds move in ahead of this next system during the afternoon. Temps will range from the mid 50s up in the mountains to the mid 60s along the coast. This afternoon, just enough instability may develop to support a few brief showers. The best chance for a few raindrops will be from the White Mountains over towards Augusta. If any rain does fall, it should be brief and after 2-3 PM.

Cool and Cloudy Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature cool temps and cloudy skies as a strong ocean storm develops well to our east. High temps will range from the low 50s north and east of Augusta to the upper 50s across much of interior Maine and southern NH. Most of this storm’s precipitation will remain off to our east, but a few showers are possible in Penobscot bay as well as the mountains of central NH/far western Maine this afternoon. Most of us should be dry for most of the day though.

Brighter skies look to return tomorrow.

Pretty Great Weather Expected Today

Hello everyone!

There’s not much to say about today’s weather except that it will be pretty great. Temps will rebound into the high 50s north and mid 60s south. Skies will be mostly sunny with just a few high clouds drifting over western areas this afternoon. No precip to think about. Get outside and enjoy it!
