Weather Brief Apr 08, 2020

Midcoast Forecast - April 8, 2020 PM

The sunny trend we saw so far this week continued on Wednesday with highs again climbing into the mid 40s to near 50. High pressure in place over the region allowing for the sunshine will move east overnight allowing for some changes starting Thursday.

Our weather will take a turn for the late week as an area of low pressure moves in on Thursday with rain developing along the coast during the midday and early afternoon with snow inland. Rainfall rates will pick up during the late afternoon and evening with some thunder possible as the center of low pressure moves east along the Maine coast. Southeast winds will also pick up through the day with gusts up to 40mph possible by Thursday night. As the low continues to shift east overnight it will strengthen and pull in cold air from the north allowing for rain to change to snow closer to the coast. The strong onshore winds will build seas along the coast which will result in some coastal flooding around the time of high tide around 1am Friday. Strong winds could also result in power outages especially for inland locations that see snow accumulation.

Skies will stay cloudy Friday with periods of light snow to rain possible as our storm system gradually exit east. So far, the weekend is looking good with partly to mostly cloudy skies Saturday then more sun on Easter Sunday and highs in the upper 40s to low 50s. Rain returns on Monday followed by clearing and warming on Tuesday.
