It's another muggy day in July, and with the humid conditions comes the threat of thunderstorms. Around noon we were already starting to see some thunderstorm activity move through ahead of an approaching cold front. Today's thunderstorms have the possibility of hail, but I think the biggest threat will be the heavy downpours. The most organized line of thunderstorms will move through early afternoon, and then the activity will become more scattered in nature. Skies will start to clear during the overnight hours and set the stage for a beautiful day ahead tomorrow.
Tuesday Storm Reports:
*Downed trees in Limington and Limerick
*Quarter sized hail (1.00") in Cape Elizabeth
*Dime sized hail (.88") in Lebanon
*Dime sized hail (.70") on Peaks Island
*Pea/Dime sized hail (.50") in South Portland
*Estimated 50-60mph wind on Commercial Street in Portland
High pressure will provide us with sunny skies for your Wednesday forecast. It will be breezy and much more comfortable. Clouds increase through the day on Thursday with the chance of a few late day showers in southern Maine. Humid conditions return on Friday along with more clouds and the chance of showers. Sun and clouds Saturday. More clouds with some thunderstorms possible on Sunday.
