Central and Southern Maine Weather


PLEASANT BUT FAR FROM PERFECT


It was nice to get some sun and lower humidity to return to the area yesterday.  Most communities experienced highs in the 70s with a pleasant breeze.  National Weather Service Survey Crew was out in Limington yesterday morning assessing the damage created by Monday night's severe weather.  They determined and EF0 tornado touched down near Paul’s Way off of Rt 117 in Limington.  Max winds were estimated around 80 mph with a path width of 80 yard and path length of 300 yards.    Any early morning fog will burn off this morning providing a sunny start to the day.  Winds will turn onshore keeping the beaches a few degrees cooler than inland areas. Most towns will top out in the 70s again. A few afternoon showers and t-storms are possible and that threat is greatest inland and mountains.  A weak disturbance will touch off  a few showers and t-storms during the second half of Thursday. Some storms may become strong to severe that day. The main threat that day is for hail and damaging straight line winds.   It’s looking like a decent end to the work week followed by the chance for more showers activity early in the weekend. Stay tuned.
