Central and Southern Maine Weather


COOL, BUT LOTS OF SUNSHINE

 

It's a very chilly start to our day today thanks to the clear skies overnight.  In Portland a new record low for this date was set with the thermometer falling to 23 degrees.  The old record was 24 set in 2003.  

 

High pressure is in control of our weather today and tomorrow so we'll see tons of sunshine.  A cool ocean breeze will develop both days at the coast so coastal towns will be coolest.  The warmest towns will be well away from the coast in the foothills and mountains. 

 

A weak cold front will bring the chance for a shower Saturday morning along with clouds but it looks like we get back to a partly sunny sky for the afternoon.  Easter Sunday looks nice with sunshine and 50's.  

 

The Androscoggin and Kennebec rivers crested overnight and are expected to recede over the next 24 to 36 hours.  Flood warnings are in effect for the rivers listed below.  You can get detailed information on the river forecasts by clicking here.
