Midcoast Forecast - November 6, 2018

Voters had to deal with wet conditions as they cast their ballots across the Midcoast Tuesday with periods of showers through the day. There was a lull during the middle of the day when the rain tapered off to a mist and drizzle but heavy showers moved back in during the mid afternoon continuing into the overnight. The late day soaking rain is being pushed in along a cold front stemming from broad low pressure over the Great Lakes. This front will push through during the overnight as the low moves to our north. This will allow for dry air to move in along brisk winds late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning leading to the return of sunshine. Rainfall totals will range either side of 1" before all is said and done.

High pressure will build in from the west through the late week providing partly to mostly sunny skies while filtering in cooler air. We'll see highs eventually dipping down into the 40s with lows nearing the freezing mark Thursday night. Clouds will steadily build back in Friday with another round of rain moving late in the day and continuing into Saturday morning, very similar to the setup we saw last weekend. Skies will clear Saturday afternoon as cool and dry air moves into the region along gusty west to northwest winds with sunshine continuing for Sunday. Temperatures will become chilly for the second half of the weekend with highs dipping into the 30s and lows in the 20s.

High pressure will set up over the region into the early week with continued sunny and cold weather on Monday but clouds will build back in late Monday as another storm moves in. With cold air in place, this may start as a mix of winter weather Tuesday morning then change to rain along the coast through the day. Stay tuned for updates.
