Central and Southern Maine Weather


The threat for a shower or thunderstorms will linger though the early evening. Some heavy downpours are possible and some may contain hail.  Overnight skies will be partly cloudy with areas of fog settling in again.  Any morning fog should break to a fair amount of sun on Friday.  An afternoon shower or thunderstorm is possible (esp. inland and mountains) but most towns should stay dry.  There remains some questions concerning the track of a few weak weather systems over the weekend.  It appears the steadiest and heaviest rainfall on Saturday will remain over southern New England but some showers are possible in Maine and New Hampshire both Saturday and Sunday.  The threat for thunderstorms will increases on Monday as our next weak disturbance approaches and moves through.  Temperatures should warm up a bit by Tuesday with most communities returning into the low 80s.
