Weather Brief Apr 09, 2020

Midcoast Forecast - April 9, 2020 PM

Soaking rains have moved in Thursday afternoon with areas of snow north as a strengthening area of low pressure moves in from the west. Southeast winds have also been increasing through the day with gusts up to 45mph possible Thursday night. As the low continues to shift east along the Maine coast overnight it will pull in cold air from the north allowing for rain to change to snow closer to the coast. The strong onshore winds will build seas along the coast which will result in some coastal flooding around the time of high tide around 1am Friday. Strong winds could also result in power outages especially for inland locations that see snow accumulation.

Skies will stay cloudy Friday with brisk west winds and periods of light snow to rain possible as our storm system gradually exit east. Overall, snow totals along the coast will range between a trace to 2" with higher amounts inland where colder air will be present with around 1" of total rainfall along the coast. So far, the weekend is looking good with partly to mostly cloudy skies Saturday then more sun on Easter Sunday and highs in the upper 40s to low 50s. Rain returns on Monday followed by clearing and warming on Tuesday.
