The low over the Atlantic will nudge northward a bit today, the trough extended westward from the low will pivot southward today. This will allow for showers to gradually taper off across northern Maine while scattered showers and light rain continue through the Bangor region and Downeast. The low will continue to push northward towards southern Nova scotia overnight into Monday. Moisture will stream in from southeast to northwest overnight allowing more showers to push into northern Maine by Monday morning. The low will sit and spin over the region for the rest of the week providing daily chances for rain.
Tropical storm Ophelia is bringing heavy rain and gusty winds to mid-Atlantic states, with landfall forecast to be in North Carolina. Ophelia, or what’s left of Ophelia, will continue to push northward. Moisture associated with Ophelia will push northward into New England by the time we get into tonight bringing in some rain to mostly southern New England. The good new is, a nice high pressure system will swing southward from Quebec and act as shield from most of the rainfall here in Maine. Expect a good amount of sunshine for the first half of the day with clouds increasing into this afternoon and evening.
