Rain is expected to continue throughout this morning and should end late this morning as drier air becomes entrained into the storm system. For this afternoon, we should see areas of drizzle or very light rain, but rain is expected to begin again late this afternoon or this evening. High temperatures today will be near 45 Degrees. Winds today will be east at 5 to 10 mph this morning and north at 5 to 10 mph this afternoon.
Rain is expected throughout tonight across all of northern Maine, however, the rain is expected to change to snow across northern parts of Aroostook County mainly to the north and west of Caribou with 1 to 3 inches of snow accumulation possible after midnight tonight as colder air works into the area. Low temperatures tonight will be near 35 Degrees. Winds tonight will be north at 10 to 20 mph.
A rainy and windy day is expected on Thursday as a low pressure system will be positioned near southern Nova Scotia. High temperatures on Thursday will be near 43 Degrees. Winds on Thursday will be north at 15 to 25 mph.
That low pressure system is expected to push to the east on Thursday night and I expect rain showers during Thursday evening, but should end late Thursday night. On Friday, cloudy skies are expected throughout the morning with skies expected to become partly sunny during Friday afternoon. Low temperatures Thursday night will be near 29 Degrees. High temperatures on Friday will be near 48 Degrees.
