Weather Brief Nov 02, 2018

Midcoast Forecast - November 2, 2018

Friday has been a soggy day across the region as an area of low pressure moved in from the west lifting a warm front north of the coast. This allowed for temperatures to climb into the mid 50s along the coast while temperatures held in the 30s and 40s across northern and central Maine. The low will continue to pump rounds of showers through the Midcoast through the early afternoon with a break in the action during the evening and early night. Another low will move into the region from the southwest Friday night merging with the initial low which will push in another batch of heavy rain late Friday night and continuing into Saturday morning. We'll see rain becoming more intermittent into the afternoon as dry air begins to filter in from the west. Temperatures will also remain relatively mild with highs in the 50s and low 60s.

The low will gradually move off to the north and east through the day as it continues to intensify. The low will push a cold front through the Midcoast late in the day which will take the brisk south wind and turn in to a stronger west wind. Winds will become sustained between 20mph and 30mph with gusts up to 50mph which may result in scattered power outages. West winds will usher in cooler and drier air Saturday night that will gradually clear skies and drop temperatures into the 30s. Rainfall totals from Friday and Saturday will end up ranging between 1.5" to 2.5".

We'll see a mix of sun and clouds Sunday and into Monday as high pressure sets up over New England. Temperatures will remain cool with highs in the 40s and lows in the 30s. Clouds will build back in late Monday and into Tuesday with rain arriving late in the day. Rain will pick up in intensity as strong low pressure moves in on Wednesday. We'll see a break in the action Thursday with more rain expected for Friday.

Don't forget to "Fall Back" Saturday night and set your clocks back 1 hour.
