Weather Brief Apr 20, 2019

Midcoast Forecast - April 20&21, 2019

Our Easter weekend will be a wet one with continued rounds of showers. A low pressure system will move north into western New York by Saturday afternoon along a stalled cold front pushing the front into New England. This will act as a track for rounds of showers that will move along the front through the region through Saturday and Sunday as it crawls to the east making for a soggy stretch of weather for Easter weekend. Showers will taper off late Sunday as the front begins to push into the Canadian Maritimes. Rainfall totals will range between 0.5" to 1.5" for the Midcoast through this period which will lead to some areas of flooding especially across northern sections of the state where up to 2 feet of snowpack is still on the ground and higher totals are expected with rain of 1.5" to 2.5". The combination of moderate to heavy rain, melting snow, and temperatures in the 50s and 60s will lead to this flooding, causing rivers and streams to rise through the weekend and into the early week. Coastal flooding will also be possible during the weekend around the high time with strong onshore winds making for higher seas.

Another area of low pressure will move north along the stalled frontal boundary on Monday producing continued rounds of rain showers for the early week that will last into early Tuesday. Our weather pattern will remain wet and active with more rounds of showers on Wednesday and again during the late week that will continue to bring flooding concerns. Temperatures will remain fairy steady with highs in the 50s through the upcoming week.
