Most areas should see at least 1/2" of rain with a possibility of over 1" in localized areas from thunderstorms.
Showers throughout the day on Monday
As a trough at 500mb sits over the Midwest, repeated pockets of shortwave energy will round the base and pass through the state, resulting in multiple rounds of showers throughout Monday and continuing into Tuesday. Rain showers begin early Monday morning starting in Western Maine before spreading throughout the rest of the state by the end of the day and into the night. A thunderstorm or two is also possible. Mostly cloudy conditions across the region with a few more breaks in the clouds towards the east. As a result, temperatures should reach the lower 70’s in parts of the east, except for along the coast, while remaining in the 60’s towards the west. Breezy with winds 10-15 mph gusting to 30 mph.
Winds will be quite gusty during the day on Monday, possibly reaching 30mph or more
Showers and thunderstorms persist through Tuesday
