Weather Brief Oct 08, 2018

Midcoast Forecast - October 8, 2018

The clouds remained locked in starting off the week for the western half of Maine while the eastern half saw mostly sunny skies. This trend will continue into Tuesday with clouds become more widespread as a slow moving cold front moves in from the north and high pressure in place over the Gulf of Maine pushes south and east. As the high shifts east, winds will pick up out of the south and west pushing milder air into the Midcoast heading into the mid week with highs climbing into the 70s. This south wind will also hold the cold front over northern Maine along with any organized rain showers.

An area of low pressure will move in from the west and pull the cold front toward the coast on Thursday bringing widespread soaking rain and ushering in cooler air. The cold front will also help to steer the remnants of Hurricane Michael up the east coast Thursday then through the southern Gulf of Maine on Friday. If the front slows up or Michael speeds up, we could see the storm system scrape along the Maine coast on Friday with another round of rain and breezy winds. High pressure will push in behind the front for the weekend ushering in the coolest air so far this fall with lows nearing freezing at the coast.
