It's been busy times for me recently with the family and dealing with transportation issues, so I apologize for the lack of updates. I will do my best to post an update Wednesday either here or on Facebook. Thursday I will be in attendance for an Integrated Warning Team conference at the National Weather Service office in Gray. Friday will be my 50th birthday, and I plan on unplugging through the weekend for family, fun and relaxation.
Two rounds of showers before the weekend
A warm front will try to nose into New England Tuesday night, but it won't gain too much ground before stalling over central region of the six state region. Showers Tuesday night into Wednesday will generally be light with little accumulation in the rain gauge.
Low pressure forms along the stalled boundary and moves eastward Wednesday night into Thursday. There may be a chance for a thunderstorm in York County, but it may be a quick flash and boom, other than that, not much to it. Showers appear to clear the region from west to east on Thursday, exiting DownEast areas by mid-afternoon.
Northern areas of the state escape the accumulating rain. The shoreline areas are likely to see the most rainfall from the two events, with roughly ½" in the gauge by the time it is over.
Regional outlook through Sunday
The upper level low that has lurked around the region for about a week may bring a shower to northern areas, and a spot chance to western mountains Friday. A backdoor cold front may try to work into northern and eastern areas on Sunday, and if it does, there may be some light shower activity. Other than that, the weekend appears nice with near normal temperatures and low humidity.
