Weather Brief Apr 16, 2018

Midcoast Forecast - April 16, 2018

We have fallen into a cruddy stretch of weather across the Midcoast and there won't be huge improvements for the upcoming week. After seeing a mild and sunny end to last week, clouds and cooler air returned during the weekend with pockets of light winter mix at times. This was ahead of a broad area of low pressure that is slowly moving in from the west bringing wind and rain at the the coast Monday and winter mix across interior sections of the state. This will push in heavier rain Monday night with 1 to 2 inches of accumulation possible.

We'll see the heaviest rain move out by Tuesday morning but the area of low pressure will stall over the region with continued cloudy skies and periods of rain possible. Temperatures will rebound back to the 40s adding a little relief to the situation. The broad low pressure will continue to slowly move off to the north and east Wednesday allowing for more peaks of sunshine and lower rain chances with most showers over the north half of Maine.

Another weak low pressure system will move in Thursday with more rain for the Midcoast with snow possible for northern Maine. We'll see gradual clearing Friday with some lingering showers across the region. High pressure will build in during the weekend finally returning us to mostly sunny skies and allowing for highs to warm into the 50s.
