Central and Southern Maine Weather



Today may be the first official day of winter, but it's not going to feel or look like it this week!  It's going to be a mild and rainy week.  Today we'll see mostly cloudy skies with highs reaching into the mid 30s.  The onshore flow may trigger some flurries or light snow over southern regions and along the coast today, that will be the case tomorrow as well.


The main weather event comes tomorrow night and into Christmas Eve and Christmas morning.  We could see some freezing rain, sleet or snow mixing in with the rain Tuesday evening before everyone changes over to rain for Christmas Eve.  Temperatures warming into the upper 40s on Christmas Eve will also bring snow melting, this combined with the heavy rain could create some flooding.  From Tuesday night into Thursday we're expecting over 2 inches of rain for many areas, also some strong gusty winds.  The system finally moves out on Thursday afternoon bringing partly sunny skies with the chance for a shower for our Christmas.  Many town's will have temperatures reaching into the low 50s for Christmas this year!
