Central and Southern Maine Weather



Our return to summer like temps has come to a screaching halt thanks to a back door cold front that moved through yesterday afternoon.  We call it a "back door cold front" since it comes from the northeast and moves southwest through the state.  This type of front brings a raw east, northeast wind behind it ushering in moist and cool maritime air direct from the Canadian Maritimes.  


This cooler air is going to give us a couple of dreary days.  Today and tomorrow we'll be stuck in the clouds with periods of drizzle and the chance for a few showers.  It will remain cool with the thermometer staying mostly in the 50's. 


Skies will brighten up by Thursday afternoon and Friday looks nice with sunshine.  Much needed rain will arrive Saturday afternoon but it looks to get out of here to give us another nice day on Sunday.
