Showers End and Skies Clear Out, Leading to Sunshine by the Afternoon

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (WAGM) - Good morning everyone and happy Thursday. A weak area of low pressure is currently working its way through the region, bringing with it some scattered showers this morning to a good portion of the county. 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. We’ll see clear skies briefly through the late afternoon and evening hours, before clouds move back in during the overnight hours ahead of our next disturbance. This looks to bring rain showers to the region during the morning hours of Friday, before a more organized line of showers and storms pushes through the region during the overnight hours and continuing into the early morning hours of Saturday.

Plenty of Sunshine This Morning, with Clouds and Showers Moving in Late Evening

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (WAGM) - Good morning everyone and happy Wednesday. We’ve got a mild day in store for the day today as high pressure remains in control of our weather through the morning hours. This will bring us a nice start to the day with mostly sunny skies expected. As we head towards the afternoon, a low pressure system and cold front approaches the region, bringing clouds and shower chances to western spots during the mid afternoon, before eventually moving east during the overnight hours. This looks to bring widespread showers and rumbles of thunder to the region before tapering off by the morning commute tomorrow. There will be enough instability over eastern spots that we could still see some showers bubble up through the mid to late morning hours, but everyone looks to see some sunshine by the afternoon hours and continuing into the evening.
