Weather Brief Feb 27, 2020

Midcoast Forecast - February 27, 2020 PM

A strong storm system is rolling through the region Thursday bringing soaking rain, strong wind, and snow inland. Rainfall totals have ranged between 1" to 2" but the bigger story has been the wind with gusts ranging from 30mph up to 60mph. The powerful east winds have resulted in numerous power outages across the region, downing limbs and trees. As of the late afternoon, the heaviest batch of rain and wind has now lifted off to the north with partial clearing as the storm begins to move north of the Maine coast. We'll see partial clearing overnight and into Friday with winds shifting out of the west, pulling in colder air for the late week and into the weekend.

Friday will bring mostly cloudy skies with pockets of light snow lingering for parts of northern Maine and the western Maine mountains as our Thursday storm slowly clears north. Winds will be breezy out of the west through the day as colder air continues to filter in with highs holding in the low 30s. We'll see lighter winds and the gradual return of sunny skies through the upcoming weekend with overnight lows dipping into the teens and highs in the mid 20s to low 30s. A warm front will lift over the region on Monday bringing clouds with late day rain and snow mix possible. Highs will climb back into the 40s following this for the mid week with periods of rain showers rolling through the region.
