Central and Southern Maine Weather



Our weather is going to stay unsettled this week with times of rain and showers but there will be dry hours and a little sun too.   It will be one of those weeks to keep the umbrella with you as you head out and about. 


Our first batch of steady rain continues to move through tonight into tomorrow morning.  Melting snow in the mountains and 1" to 2" of rain will cause rivers to be on the rise so a flood watch is in effect until Wednesday morning.  

A high astronomical tide and a 1 to 2 foot storm surge will cause coastal flooding tonight in York and Cumberland Counties in Maine and the seacoast of NH.  High tide is at 1:21 AM with flooding occuring about 2 hours before and after high tide. 


The steadiest rain tomorrow will be in the morning with clouds, drizzle, and a few showers for the rest of the day.  A little sunshine is even possible late in the day.  After a little more sun on Wednesday we have another batch of rain Wednesday night into Thursday morning.  


A few pop up afternoon showers will then be possible Friday through Sunday with a mix of sun and clouds each day.   I guess we can use the saying "April showers, bring May flowers."
