Isolated storms on Thursday
The SPC has put southern portions of Maine in a marginal risk, while the rest of Maine is in a general thunderstorm risk. Showers/storms are expected to roll through the state tomorrow afternoon into tomorrow night. Some of these storms could be severe and feature damaging winds. Make sure to keep an eye on local news tomorrow!
Thursday will likely start with low clouds, drizzle and patchy fog along the coast and into the coastal plain. Showers will move into the region around 2pm and impact mainly the central/northern portions of the state. Like mentioned above, some of these showers could be thunderstorms and some could be severe. Otherwise, skies will be mostly cloudy throughout the day.
As for temperatures, most of the state will be in the low 70s with southwestern areas a little higher. Winds will be from the south, so a decent seabreeze will set up, keeping temperatures fairly low along the shoreline. Dew points will be in the 60s tomorrow so it will also be fairly humid.
Temperatures will fall into the 50s overnight. Fog is likely in Downeast areas, even extending into northern areas.
Clear out and warm up for Friday
