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.
