Central and Southern Maine Weather



Sun will make a welcome return to the area on Friday and temperatures will stay in the 30s.  It’s looking like a quiet start to the weekend but a few low clouds may try to sneak into the area (esp. along the coast) Saturday night  and more so on Sunday.  Skies should be brightest inland and mountains on Sunday and temperatures should remain a few degrees below normal.  Clouds will again increase by Monday followed by our next round of precipitation arriving Tuesday.  Coastal zones should experience mostly light rain but inland and mountain communities should receive a period of wintry mix.  A stronger storm will arrive on Christmas Eve Day with a round of heavy rain and strong gusty winds. Based on today’s forecast, winds may gust 40 to 50 mph with Christmas Eve temperatures rising to around 50 degrees. Any steady rain should exit by Christmas morning.  Some rain and  snow showers are possible for the holiday, but any accumulations look to be in the mountains.  Winds will remain gusty through the end of next week.  Another storm is possible a week from Saturday. Stay tuned.
