Weather Brief Nov 23, 2018

Midcoast Forecast - November 23, 2018

Records fell for Thanksgiving and the month of November in locations across New England with unseasonably cold air moving in. The brisk northwest wind added an additional chill making it feel more like January than November with wind chill values measuring up to -15° Thanksgiving morning. High temperature during the afternoon made it up to the teens after starting out in the single digits. With high pressure in place over the region Friday, abundant sunshine and lighter winds helped to bring temperatures back into the 20s to near 30 during the afternoon. This warming trend will continue into the start of the weekend with sunshine and highs near 40 along the coast.

An area of low pressure will move in on Sunday as it passes through the Gulf of Maine while interacting with a broader low well to our northwest, north of the Great Lakes. This will push clouds and precipitation back Saturday night and into Sunday with rain likely along the coast and pockets of sleet and freezing rain inland. The exact track and temperature for the day are still up in the air which will determine how much precipitation there will be and in what form. Clouds and some showers will linger over the region on Monday as our next storm system moves in from the west. A broader and potentially more potent area of low pressure will push in late Monday and into Tuesday that could bring rain again along the coast and mix inland, more in the form of snow as well as stronger winds. This storm too is up in the air a bit on the exact position upon arrival. Make sure to check back for updates over the coming days.

Clouds will linger into the late week with highs in the 30s to near 40 and lows into the 20s.
