A quick moving low pressure system has brought rain to some parts of Maine and New Hampshire during the overnight hours. The good news is that this ocean storm is a heading on out of here this morning, and we will start to see some partial clearing from west to east through the day. Temperatures will also warm nicely once we clear out the clouds. The biggest change over the next couple days will be the return of some muggy weather. That continues right through the upcoming weekend.
This Morning - Rain continues to move east. We will first start to see clearing conditions in western and southern Maine around 8/9am. The Bangor area will see clearing conditions mid to late afternoon.
This Afternoon - I am calling today's clearing just partial clearing. We have another weak trough heading our way from the west that could bring us more clouds and another round of showers and thunderstorms late this afternoon. High temperatures will be about 76-81 degrees.
Tonight - Mostly cloudy skies, areas of fog, and lows in the mid to low 60s.
Extended Forecast - Humid conditions return to the forecast for the second half of the week. We will start out Thursday with some clouds, but then get into partly cloudy skies. Just the slight chance of some isolated showers during the afternoon. High temperatures will warm into the 80s. The warming trend continues Friday and Saturday with some towns seeing temps reach towards the 90 degree mark. Skies will be partly cloudy both of those days. Clouds will increase on Sunday and we have some showers heading our way late in the day. The rain will then pick up in intensity Sunday night.
