Central and Southern Maine Weather


The weekend is here and it’s looking like the weather will mostly cooperate for outdoor activities.  We unfortunately won’t have the full sun so many of us enjoyed during the course of the day Friday. A weak area of low pressure south of our area will spread clouds across the area.  Expect more clouds than sun for this year’s fourth festivities.  It’s looking like most if not all of the wet weather will remain south and west of our region but I cant rule out a light shower over extreme southern and coastal Maine and parts of NH.  Clouds will start to break up during the early night time hours.  Many communities will have their fireworks between 9:00 and 9:30 PM.  Based on today’s forecast, I don’t anticipate any weather related problems.  Sunday will showcase a return to some sun. A weak disturbance may touch off a brief shower or t-storm and that chance is greatest inland.  Temperatures will be a few degrees warmer as well with many communities touching 80 degrees for the first time in many days.  Temps will remain mild into early next week. Showers and thunderstorms will reenter the forecast on Wednesday. Stay tuned.
