Showers with isolated thunderstorms are headed our way for tonight and with temperatures near 60 degrees it should feel almost like summer. All the activity is occurring out ahead of a cold front that is expected to be running right through our region by Friday morning. It will slowly move off the Maine coast during the day and once it does the wind will shift into the north allowing cooler air to return. An area of low pressure is going to form on the front south of New England Friday and then slowly track into the Gulf of Maine over the weekend. This will keep the rain going into Saturday with showers likely on Sunday. Saturday looks to be especially unpleasant with a cold northerly wind accompanying the rain. The potential exists for some heavy rainfall totals from this system and we will be keeping a close eye on the rivers and streams for any flooding. By Monday the storm should be far enough away to allow for some sunshine so it appears we'll salvage at least one day of the three day weekend. Tuesday is looking even nicer with temperatures warming into the 70s.
