After a damp long holiday weekend, we are finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel. The cold front that is responsible for almost 4 inches of rain in Lincoln County will finally clear Maine by this evening but not without a last shot of showers later today. Lingering moisture, the approaching cold front and daytime heating could leave the possibility of a few strong thunderstorms later this evening. Good news is that the cold front will sweep out all the humidity and wet conditions overnight.
On Wednesday, high pressure will briefly take over leaving us with mostly sunny skies. Southwesterly winds will still allow temperatures to creep up into the upper 70s. Inland areas could reach that 80-degree mark.
Increasing clouds will move in on Wednesday night as the next quick cold front swings through. Not expecting much as far as rain is concerned, although I wouldn't rule out the chance of an overnight or early Thursday morning shower.
High pressure rebuilds for Thursday with Northwesterly winds dragging in much drier and COOLER Fall-like temperatures. Highs near the coast will struggle to reach the 70-degree mark while temperatures further inland should remain in the mid 60s. Dry conditions will remain with us until at least the start of the weekend.
One more speed bump in the weather and then we are clear for the rest of the week. Enjoy and make it a great one!
