Sub-freezing temps and frost threat continue Monday night
Happy first day of meteorological summer, though tonight definitely won't feel like it! However, tonight looks like our last night of sub-freezing temperatures and threat of frost. A frost advisory has been put in effect for most of Maine, while a freeze warning is in effect for the far northwestern regions . Prepare to cover plants/gardens again tonight!
Rain showers expected late Tuesday into Wednesday
Tuesday warms up a bit, featuring widespread 60s throughout the state. The shoreline will see an onshore flow, while the rest of the state will feature winds 5-10 mph from the W/NW.
A shortwave advances into Maine Tuesday afternoon, bringing showers to southwestern regions. The showers will begin to impact central Maine early Wednesday morning, and linger throughout the day. Though the rain will linger, it's not expected to be significant, most regions will only see around a tenth of an inch. Soutwestern Maine will be the most impacted region, getting up to a quarter inch of rain.
Next chance for rain on Friday, summer-like temperatures return!
Our next chance for rain in the area comes Friday with the arrival of a cold front. Thunderstorms may be a possibility during the evening hours. However, this rain is still fairly insignificant and may not amount to much. So the threat for a significant/measurable rain event still remains up in the air.
Looking ahead, the 70s and 80s return for the end of the week. If you're a summer lover like me, this is good news, especially after the freezing temperatures to begin the week! Gotta love Maine weather.
June: "What does Weather-Ready look like?"
June 1st marks the first day of meteorological summer, and also the beginning of WRN's summer campaign: "What does Weather-Ready look like?". Since we also have a disturbance over Mexico right now that has a 90% chance of forming into a cyclone, this infographic shows how you can prepare and be "weather-ready" for hurricanes. It's important as a nation to always be weather-ready and prepare for situations that may seem "out of the ordinary" or "unlikely",it can happen to anyone!
