Showers with a chance for embedded thunder likely
Rain showers with some embedded thunderstorms are possible Thursday night into Friday morning. Severe chances at this point appear remote over that period. Expect areas of fog along the coast, with pockets over interior areas for the morning commute.
After the main front passes through Friday morning, a trailing weak frontal boundary may pop a shower or thunderstorm later in the afternoon. With the dew points in the upper 60s to low 70s, that upper air trigger may bring a strong to severe storm for areas away from the coast as we head into Friday night.
Showers end for most by around midnight Saturday morning.
A weak front slides through late Saturday into Sunday
I've been watching this all week and for the most part, the idea has held together. Northern areas have the best chance for showers on Sunday. Eastern Aroostook south to Washington County may get a thunderstorm Sunday afternoon. Western areas may get a spot shower or two Sunday. Skies should clear out from west to east Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening.
Regional outlook through Tuesday
Temperatures will begin to increase as we head into the work week. We could be dealing with Triple-H (hazy, hot, humid) conditions as we head into the middle to latter part of the week. Remnant moisture from Barry may impact the area in some form Thursday, either with rain and/or thunderstorms, or may at more moisture to an already humid air mass on the way.
