Summer wraps up peaceful
Quiet times continue through the weekend and to start the week. If there is a weekend to get out and enjoy, this is the one to do it. I am adjusting my schedule to do just that. There aren't that many days like this left in the year. If you head to a fair, get out on the boat, do that hike you put off all summer, or hit the golf course like I will, enjoy this.
Some rain possible midweek
High pressure moves to the southeast and sets up a southwest flow which will bring warmer air into the region through the weekend. I suspect a handful of 80° temperatures over southwest areas on Saturday, and more widespread on Sunday. Northern, eastern and western areas will see 70s on average through the weekend. Overnight lows will tick upward as well, with 40s and 50s to start Saturday, 50s for Sunday, and many locales starting in the 60s on Monday. The humidity stays at comfortable levels through the weekend, before it gets a bit muggy ahead of the approaching front on Monday.
Monday night into Tuesday brings the region the next chance for rain.
I mentioned in a previous update this week questioning if the approaching front over this period could fall apart. The best chance for it to hold together appears to be along the international border with Quebec and northern areas. The further south and east, very little rain is expected, and what falls may barely register in the rain gauge. It's been a dry month for most, and it will continue to be for the most part through the end of September.
Have a wonderful weekend! My next update will come on Monday!

A special thank you to those that have signed up to be monthly contributors on my Patreon page and to those who have mailed checks to me. This a labor of love here. I don't mind the 4 AM wake up calls (2 AM for snow days) to formulate a forecast, create graphics then write it all out for your consumption, so long as I have the financial support from you to continue to do so. There is no media or marketing influence here. No model forecast bias. No political or scientific agenda. It's just Maine weather, plain and simple. I would appreciate your support to continue this for 2020. Contributors are donation on average of $5 per month / $60 per year either through Patreon or by check. No amount is too small. This is Maine, most of us are on tight budgets, and having been there myself, I understand the struggle. All I ask is to do what you can. If you can't do anything financially right now, that is totally understandable. Please pass along what I do to others and help this site to grow!
Thank you for your support!
