BECOMING BRIGHTER AND WARMER
Many communities picked up around 2" of rain Friday. It was the wettest calendar day in Portland since October 28th. I'm happy to report the weather will slowly improve over the weekend. Clouds and fog will break to partly sunny skies today. That process will be slowest at the coast line. High temperatures will top out around 80 degrees and humidity levels will increase as well. A few late day scattered showers and t-storms are possible and that chance is greatest in New Hampshire and Western Mountains of Maine. Sunday still looks to be the pick of the weekend with sunshine, lower humidity, and comfortable August temperatures. Highs will top out in the 80s for most towns. A stretch of mid-summer heat is heading our way on Monday and Tuesday. Mid to upper 80s will be common area wide with some towns making a run at the low 90s Tuesday. A cold front will be the focus for showers and thunderstorms Wednesday. A more comfortable air mass will again settle in late next week. Enjoy!
Our weather forecast is looking good for viewing the partial solar eclipse here in Maine Monday. Here's everything you need to know if you want to see it.
