Weather Brief Oct 16, 2019

Midcoast Forecast - October 16, 2019 AM

Wednesday will be a a day of transition as high pressure begins to exit east of the region and a strong area of low pressure moves in from the west. We'll see a sunny start Wednesday morning with clouds increasing through the afternoon as the storm closes in. We'll see winds begin to increase from the southeast late in the day with soaking rains moving in overnight. The low will pass along the Maine coast Thursday morning which will cause winds to ramp up leading up to sunrise and through the first half of the morning. Southeast winds will be sustained between 20 to 30mph along the coast during this time with gusts up to mph. Winds will decrease slightly heading into the afternoon and shift out of the northwest as rounds of showers continue. The storm will gradually clear to the north and east overnight allowing for rain to come to an end but clouds will linger through Friday along with brisk northeast winds that could gust around 30mph through the day.  The combination of strong winds, heavy rain, and foliage remaining on a large number of trees, scattered power outages will be possible, mainly Thursday morning. Rainfall totals will range between 1-2" with locally higher amounts up to 3". We'll see a pleasant weekend as high pressure builds back into the region with highs climbing into the 60s by Sunday.
