Patchy frost possible in other interior areas
Well protected valleys and other areas that are susceptible to frost may get one Monday night. For those tending gardens of either the floral or harvest variety, you may want to consider covering up the plants over the far interior. The National Weather Service in Caribou has issued a frost advisory for the Allagash, Baxter State Park and surrounding areas. Be advised, this may be necessary Thursday into Friday morning as well.
Unsettled weather returns Wednesday
High pressure from Canada dominates the weather for Monday into Tuesday. A warm front works into the region Tuesday night into Wednesday and is likely to bring some shower activity to the region, ending overnight into Thursday.
For now, the central highlands and eastern Aroostook appear to be the areas that benefits most from the rainfall. Western areas may see an isolated thunderstorm which could add a bit more to the total. At this point, severe weather appears unlikely.
Weekend appears to be a 50/50 split for now
High pressure moves into the region Thursday into Friday, then moves offshore. A cold front passes through from west to east on Saturday, bringing the next chance for rain. Sunday appears to be the best day of the weekend as it appears for now.
Temperatures to run a bit cool through the week
Average temperatures for this time of the year are generally in the upper 60s for highs and mid to low 50s for lows over northern areas, low 70s for highs and upper 50s for southern areas. Outside of a couple of spurts Wednesday and Sunday, temperatures appear to run below normal through the weekend. Summer is not over yet, however. There are signals that above normal temperatures could return for the third week of September.
Pine Tree Weather needs your support!
Pine Tree Weather is funded through the support of people like you. To this point, I do not accept outside advertising, and would like to keep it that way. Thanks to the Patreon monthly donors and those that have mailed checks, the site is roughly 40% funded for the year. In order to continue, a total of $3,000 is needed to pay the bills. October and January are when most of the bills come due. I have spent over $10,000 of my own funds, and refuse to spend any more out of my own pocket to keep this going. If find value in what I do, I will humbly ask you to support it. Without the financial support, this site will cease. No amount is too small. I would appreciate your support!
