Weather Brief Apr 17, 2019

Midcoast Forecast - April 17, 2019 AM

High pressure will set up over the region on Wednesday making for a great spring day with light winds and abundant sunshine. The sun will help temperatures to climb into the mid 50s during the afternoon after starting the day in the 30s. The sunshine wont last long though with a broad storm system pushing in during the late week that will linger through the weekend with clouds and rain showers.

Low pressure will form over the center of the country on Wednesday and push east into Thursday lifting a warm front ahead of it over Maine. This will make for a mostly cloudy and cooler day with a chance for rain late in the day with the best rain chances to the north. Winds will increase out of the south Friday in the wake of the warm front that will usher in warm moist air into the region. This will bring highs into the low 60s during the afternoon with the bulk of organized rain holding over far northern Maine and spotty rain closer to the coast.

Low pressure will continue to gradually push east through Friday and into Saturday that will pull a cold front into New England from the west. This front will nearly stall through the region on Saturday allowing for scattered showers through the day. The front will slowly move further east into Easter Sunday with continued showers through much of the day. The storm system will continue to press east into the Canadian Martimes on Monday but there is some uncertainty if it will stall and track back east into Maine with continued rain chances or clear out for good during the early week allowing for the return of sunshine with highs climbing to near 70.
