Central and Southern Maine Weather


 

HOT, HUMID, AND THUNDERSTORMS

Today will be our most uncomfortable day has temperatures soar into the upper 80s and low 90s for most towns. Humidity levels will become oppressive as dew point temperatures rise into the 60s and 70s.   The approach and passage for a strong cold front will be the focus for numerous thunderstorms during the late afternoon into the overnight Wednesday.  Some storms are expected to become strong to severe with the potential for damaging winds and hail.   The front will shift east during the morning hours Thursday. Any early morning showers will move out setting the stage of partly sunny skies and lower humidity.  The end of the week and the first part of the weekend is looking very nice here in vacationland.  Temperatures will be seasonable a degree or two either side of 80 degrees.   A brief shower or t-storm is possible late in the weekend but any steady rain should hold off until Monday and Tuesday as our next storm system moves through.
