Central and Southern Maine Weather



It's going to be a hot one today with the 3 "H's" making a return.  Hazy, Hot, and Humid.  A cold front will be arriving late in the day touching off thunderstorms, some of which may become severe. 


Temperatures today will be right around 90 degrees even at the coast thanks to a southwest wind.  The exception will be the mid coast where a southwest wind is off the ocean so lower 80's are expected there.  Thunderstorms will start to move into the north and mountains by around 1 pm and then head south arrving into the lakes region by 3pm or 4pm and the coast by 5pm or 6 pm.  


Some thunderstorms may become severe with damaging winds, hail, and frequent lightning.  Thunderstorms will dwindle after about 8 pm and we'll just be left with clouds and a few showers for the overnight.   Cooler temps and lower humidity move in behind the front for our Thursday and hang out with us through Saturday. 


Sunday looks to be more unsettled with lots of clouds and more showers and thunderstorms arriving so the weekend is looking 50/50.
