Central and Southern Maine Weather

Sunny Stretch and Warm Temps

High pressure settled to our north will keep us dry and mainly sunny over the next few days. Hurricane Joaquin’s track will take it well off to the east, only slightly impacting our surf heights. The storm is weakening and is currently a category 2 hurricane.

To start the work week on Monday, we jump into the low 60s with continued sunshine. Tuesday will be in the mid 60s, with the peak of the heat arriving on Wednesday in the upper 60s. A weak cold front passes over us late Wednesday, not providing any rain, but knocking our temps back down to normal levels. The end of the week will be seasonably cool and stormy conditions arrive late Friday into Saturday morning. I'll have more details on the rain and timing as we get closer.
