Frost advisories posted all the way to the shorelines
Wednesday appears to be pleasant with any areas of fog or clouds clearing early with abundant sun everywhere. High pressure settling over the region will calm any breeze. The combination of those two ingredients sets up a chilly night statewide, and will bring a potential frost threat to the coast. This will be the coldest night in the foreseeable future. If your still growing, cover up the plants. There is still growing time left after this.
Not much change long range
High pressure over our region sinks south then east over the next two days. As it moves offshore, it sets up a Bermuda High that will bring warmer air into the region. Spikes in humidity may come Sunday into Monday as the frontal boundary approaches, but other than that, dew points will be at comfortable levels as the thermometer creeps up to above normal run of temperatures through the weekend.
Dry times continue through the weekend. The frontal boundary that arrives early next week may bring the north and mountains a bit of rain, and then appears to fall apart as it moves southeast to the coast. It's a bit early to get into too many specifics with the system, but what is presented here is fair estimate for now.
Your support of Pine Tree Weather is needed
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 donating on average of $5 per month / $60 per year either through Patreon or by mailing a 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!
