Weather Brief May 22, 2020

Midcoast Forecast - September 21, 2020

Our week is off to a chilly start with the coldest air so far this season. Morning lows on Monday dipped into the 20s and 30s prompting a freeze warning for the area. We've seen abundant sun through the day helping to raise highs to around 60 thanks to high pressure parked over the region. Clouds will build in Monday night and into Tuesday as Hurricane Teddy approaches from the south and east nearing the coast of Nova Scotia Tuesday night as a category 1 storm. This will lead to some rain for the Midcoast and Downeast Maine during the afternoon and overnight and make for breezy north winds. The biggest impacts will come from the wave action this generates through the Gulf of Maine with seas building to around 10 feet offshore by late Tuesday and into Wednesday. Teddy will quickly exit to the north and east on Wednesday with winds gradually decreasing through the day and clouds slowly clearing out. The bigger story for Wednesday will be the warmer weather with highs back into the low to mid 70s. This warm weather will hold through the late week and upcoming weekend along with increasing humidity under partly to mostly sunny skies.
