Mild weather returns
Finally, a break from the heat and humidity, with temperatures in the mid 70s throughout the state tomorrow! Dew points will range from the low 50s north to low 60s in southwestern regions. So, southwestern regions may see more humid conditions than the rest of the state but nothing unbearable. Northern regions of the state will see maybe a passing cloud or two tomorrow, while southern and Downeast regions will experience more widespread cloudiness. There is a slight chance of a few pop-up showers in the southwestern regions due to the higher moisture, but otherwise, this seems to be the first day in a while with little to no chance of rain. Make sure to get outside and enjoy it if you can!
Overnight, temperatures will fall into the low-mid 50s throughout central regions of the state with some upper 40s up north and isolated upper 50s southwest.
Another beautiful day on Thursday
Thursday is looking like another beautiful day out there! Slightly warmer than Wednesday with temperatures reaching into the upper 70s and even some isolated low 80s. The dry air will linger into Thursday as well, with dew points staying in the 50s throughout the state. Some clouds will begin to build in during the afternoon hours, before showers arrive overnight.
Rain moves in for Friday
Rain will begin to move in late Thursday night and linger throughout the day on Friday. Isolated thunderstorms are possible in some areas of the state. Otherwise, expect cloudy skies throughout the day. The rain should be moved out by late Friday night. Precipitation totals are expected to be around a quarter to a half of an inch.
Maine and NH hurricane preparedness week!
After you determine your risk (see last post), then you should start making evacuation plans! Find out if you live in a hurricane evacuation zone and if so, start making plans on where to go and how to get there. See this link for more information: https://www.weather.gov/wrn/2020-hurricane-evacuation. As much as us meteorologists try to predict the weather and convey that to people in order to keep them safe, we can't control what people choose to do in a situation. So, always be prepared and have a plan on what to do in these situations.
