Our stretch of beautiful weather continues. High pressure will provide us with sunny skies right through the end of the work week. A cold front will slowly approach from the west this weekend and bring us more clouds with the chance of showers. All eyes are still on the forecasted track of Hurricane Sandy. Even though we are about 5-7 days out the track does need to be watched. Computer models are starting to finally agree that the remnants of Sandy will have a direct impact along the east coast early next week.
Tonight - Another chilly night ahead with clear skies and light winds. Lows in 30s. Far northern Maine will see temps drop into the 20s by early tomorrow morning.
Thursday - Mostly sunny skies with highs once again in the 50s.
Extended Forecast - Our temperatures get a boost on Friday into the 60s as a warm front lifts to the north. Clouds will increase Saturday with the chance of late day showers over New Hampshire and western Maine. That front will stall out to our west keeping our weather unsettled Sunday and Monday. The result will be cloudy skies, drizzle, and showers.
We will continue to watch the track of Sandy over the next several days to see how she impacts our weather at the start of next week. Two possible scenarios has her making landfall Monday in New Jersey or Tuesday right here in Maine. Either way strong winds and waves will start to pick up Sunday night. We will see the potential for damaging winds and coastal flooding. Heavy rain also brings the potential of flooding for some inland locations Monday night into Wednesday. We will keep you posted as the latest information comes into the weather office.
