Central and Southern Maine Weather


RAIN CONTINUES

 

It's going to be another dreary day with more rain and drizzle.  This is all thanks to a very slow moving storm that is going to stay with us through Friday.  Being that this is a long storm below is what to expect. 

 

We'll finally see improvement with a partly sunny sky for the weekend.  There is a chance for a shower on Sunday but at least the steady rains will be over.  More sunshine and a slight warm up is in store for the beginning of next week. 

 


WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THIS LATEST STORM

 

TIMING: It's a slow mover. Periods of rain extending through Friday.  Heaviest should be Thursday morning

 

HOW MUCH:  Most communities will receive between 2" and 5" of rain over the four day stretch. Locally higher amounts are possible.

 

FLOODING:  Flooding is possible especially Thursday. We're watching the rivers and streams. A Flood Watch has been issued from through Thursday Evening. 

 

WIND:  Winds will become gusty out of the northeast  Gusts 30 to 40 mph are possible tonight into Thursday.

 

COASTAL FLOODING - Tides are only expected to rise to around 9.5 feet during the height of the storm. It would take a surge of 2 feet or more to cause coastal flooding. At this point, coastal flooding is not expected. Northeast winds may cause a surge of more than one foot and will combine with 10 to 15 foot waves to create the potential  for splash over and beach erosion.  This would be more likely in York County and on coastal NH.
