Weather Brief Mar 21, 2019

Midcoast Forecast - March 21, 2019

A cold front sweeping in from the west is gradually pushing clouds into the Midcoast Thursday. The clouds will continue to thicken up as a rapidly developing low pressure system over the mid Atlantic moves north along the east coast and into New England on Friday bringing brisk winds and heavy rains. Temperatures will hold above freezing for the coastal Midcoast during this time making this an all rain event with some snow possible for inland portions of the Midcoast and Maine, especially the mountains. Rainfall totals will be hardy, with 1" to 1.5" with the heaviest rain falling Friday morning. Winds will be brisk as times during this period but are expected to have little impact. The storm will gradually clear out Friday night and into Saturday with some rain and snow showers wrapping in on the back side of the storm with little to no snow accumulation Saturday morning. The combination of mild air and heavy rains could result in areas of flooding. River's will have to be monitored during this time for rising waters.

We'll see quiet weather for Sunday and into the early week with highs returning to the 40s with a chance for light snow Monday as a cold front drops in from the north. This will knock temperatures back down heading into the mid week but mostly sunny skies will help to take the edge off the chill. Our next chance for rain arrives on Friday as a warm front pushes north through the region, ushering in warmer air for the weekend.
