Midcoast Forecast - March 2, 2018

A strong storm centered to the south of Cape Cod has made for a windy day across the Midcoast Friday with winds cranking from the northeast between 20 and 30mph with gusts up to 50mph possible. This is making for rough surf with seas across Penobscot Bay increasing to around 6 feet south and 3 feet north with waves up to 20 feet offshore. There is a chance for minor coastal flooding around the time of high tide Friday around 11pm after seeing some already Friday morning. Winds will be strongest over the central Gulf of Maine and into Massachusetts where gusts could reach hurricane force, over 70mph. We saw a few rain showers Friday morning but the bulk of the rain is holding offshore.


The storm will linger just off to the southeast through the weekend continuing to provide cloudy skies and blustery winds as highs drop back down into the 30s. We'll see the chance for a few flurries Monday as a trough pushes through the region and our weekend storm finally clears out to the east. We're watching for another storm to bring a mix of rain and snow Wednesday and into Thursday.
