Midcoast Forecast - March 20, 2019

High pressure is moving east into the Canadian maritime Wednesday setting up the Midcoast in a southwest flow. This has pumped in milder air for a first day of spring with highs climbing into the 40s for the Midcoast and near 50 for southwest Maine. We'll continue to see this milder air move in for the late week setting us up for rain.

A cold front sweeping in from the west will push clouds into the Midcoast on Thursday then phase with a rapidly developing low pressure system along the east coast that will move along the coast of New England on Friday bringing brisk winds and heavy rains. Temperatures will hold above freezing for the Midcoast during this time making this an all rain event with some snow possible for the high terrain of the western Maine mountains. Rainfall totals will be hardy, with 1" to 1.5" with the heaviest rain falling Friday morning. The storm will gradually clear out Friday night and into Saturday with some rain and snow showers wrapping in on the back side of the storm will little to no snow accumulation expected as highs drop into the 30s.

We'll see quiet weather for Sunday and into the early week with highs returning to the 40s with a chance for light snow Monday as a cold front drops in from the north.
