I'm going to keep this short 1) because I am running to Scarborough to help our Feed Maine food drive 2) we are locked in a ridiculously boring weather pattern.
Today: Mostly sunny and pleasant. There are a few coastal clouds hanging around this morning (which haven't been showing up on the satellite picture...tres annoying), but they will burn off by 10-11 AM at the latest. Temperatures will range from the upper 50s along the coastline to low 70s across northern Maine and the foothills with mid 60s for the rest of us.
Tonight: Mostly clear and chilly. Lows in the mid to upper 30s with calm winds.
Sunday: Similar to Saturday but a bit warmer by about 2-3 F in most spots. Still a sea breeze keeping the coast cooler.
Monday: Similar to Sunday. A few afternoon clouds and even a sprinkle are possible over northern Maine from Millinocket to Caribou with a weak cold front pushing into the top of our ridge of high pressure. No big deal but definitely worth mentioning since nothing else is going on. Away from northern Maine it will be another sunny and pleasant day with highs in the 60s to low 70s.
With a weak upper level disturbance near by, Tuesday may be more of a 50/50 mixture of sun and clouds as opposed to mostly sunny. However it may be our best chance to fight off a sea breeze with a general west flow aloft. Temperatures should reach the 60s everywhere with widespread 70s inland.
Our next chance of any precipitation will come late Wednesday afternoon with some scattered showers arriving from the south.
An upper level low will meander (one of my favorite words ever) around on Thursday and Friday, so isolated showers are likely...but not the soaking rain we could use.
Ok I'm out to shake some hands. Come by the Hannaford in Scarborough and say hi. Or more importantly to meet Pat Callaghan and his hair.
