Weather Brief Jan 23, 2019

Midcoast Forecast - January 23, 2019

Our warming trend will continued on Wednesday with lows starting in the single digits and teens with highs climbing quickly into the mid to upper 30s during the afternoon. These temperatures will keep climbing into the 40s during the overnight and hold into Thursday as low pressure gets closer and closer from the west lifting a warm front over Maine. We'll see snow and winter mix breaking out over the northern half of the state through late Thursday as the warm front drives north with rain filling in closer to the coast late in the day and into Wednesday night. Scattered showers will continue through the night and into Thursday morning as the low lifts to our north dragging a cold front into New England.

An area of low pressure will ride up along the front on Thursday which will enhance rainfall through the day and increase south winds especially along the coast. A high wind watch is in effect for the Midcoast with sustained winds of 15 to 25mph with gusts up to 50mph possible on Thursday. This will build seas up to 5 feet for Penobscot Bay and up to 15 feet offshore. Rain will taper off during the late afternoon and come to and end during the overnight.

Clouds will linger into the late week with sunny skies back in fro the weekend as high pressure builds in behind this storm which will cool temperatures back to more seasonable levels. Another storm rolls in late in the weekend that could bring snow and rain mix Sunday followed by another mix of snow and rain Tuesday.
