Central and Southern Maine Weather


COOL, BUT LOTS OF SUNSHINE

 

After a chilly start to the day today we are seeing a nice warm up but temperatures will remain colder than normal.  The normal high for today is 54 degrees, most towns will see temperatures about 15 degrees below that. It will feel coolest at the coast thanks to an onshore wind. Inland towns will be about 5 degrees warmer.  Clear and sunny skies will continue through the day today and tomorrow.

 

This morning we started off very cold with temperatures in the teens and 20s.  Portland set a new record for the daily low at 22 degrees. The old record was 24 degrees set in 2003.  

 

Weak low pressure passes to our north on Saturday bringing a chance of showers Saturday morning.  Easter Sunday looks to be nice with sunny skies and temperatures in the 50s.

 

 

The Androscoggin and Kennebec rivers crested overnight and are expected to recede over the next 24 to 36 hours.  Flood warnings are in effect for the rivers listed below.  You can get detailed information on the river forecasts by clicking here.
