Central and Southern Maine Weather



Sun will rule the sky today as high pressure remains in control of our weather.  We’re watching a band of low clouds lurking off shore and there’s a decent chance it will move into the area tonight through Sunday.  In fact the chance for snow shower activity will exist on Sunday thanks this feature and persistent northeasterly wind.  It’s looking like a quiet start to the week with skies becoming at least partly sunny.  Tuesday will showcase clouds with the chance for rain at the coast and a wintry mix inland. Any precipitation looks light that day and it may hold off until late in the day.   An item of greater concern will be a more powerful storm slated to arrive on Wednesday (Christmas Eve).  It’s looking like a round of heavy rain and strong southeasterly winds will lead headlines that day. The potential exists for over 3 inches of rain which may lead to flooding.  Tides are running astronomically high, therefore coastal flooding is possible at the time of high tide.  Also, winds may gust over 50 mph leading to the potential for power outages. Stay tuned for updates in the coming days. It’s looking like Christmas Day will  show some improvement with any rain ending early. Skies will become partly sunny with snow showers in the mountains.
