Shower and Thunderstorm Threat Later This Evening After Peaks of Sunshine Today

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (WAGM) - Good morning everyone and happy Friday. We have a messy weather day in store with some rain showers this morning, sunshine during the middle of the day, with more showers and thunderstorms expected late this afternoon into this evening. This is all thanks to an approaching warm and cold front to the region, which has already brought the shower activity to much of the region this morning. Once this clears the region later on tonight, we’ll begin to clear back out in time for tomorrow. At this point things look to be slowing down in the atmosphere, meaning that the low pressure and associated moisture will linger just to our south and east, resulting in unsettled weather for southern spots during the first part of the morning, with northern and western spots seeing more sunshine throughout the day.

This will continue to make its way east throughout the day, bringing with it the cloud cover and rain shower activity. Showers will likely come to an end over western spots over the next couple of hours, with cloud cover and shower activity hanging on for eastern spots through the late morning and early afternoon.
