Clouds Linger Today with Shower and Storm Threats Tomorrow Afternoon

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (WAGM) - Good morning everyone and happy Wednesday. We started the morning out with temperatures in the mid to upper 50s. Winds have been fairly calm overnight, so it was a great night to open the windows and let some fresh air in. Dewpoints are sitting in the mid to upper 50s. Thankfully we will continue to be in that comfortable state for today. The clouds will continue to fill in across the county. Some of us in far northern portions of the county may get lucky and see a few breaks in the clouds. Its not until the overnight hours where we see those clouds start to break up. High temperatures today will be in the low to mid 70s across the region. That is quite a difference from those observed high temperatures we had yesterday which were only in the upper 50s to low 60s. Lows tonight will be in the mid to upper 50s because of those clouds acting as a blanket to trap in those warmer temperatures. It will be another great night to keep the windows open and let in some fresh air. The winds will be fairly light.

Heavy Rainfall Expected Overnight Tonight Leads to Flooding Concerns

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (WAGM) - Good evening everyone and happy Monday. This evening’s weather setup shows the low pressure system and stationary front currently splitting the state in half in terms of weather. Through the southern part of the state, hot and humid weather has continued throughout the day as sunshine did make an appearance further south. For us, we’ve been stuck on the cold side of the system, leading to showers this morning, and a lack of sunshine during the afternoon keeping temperatures on the cooler side.

Isolated Showers Today Lead to Overcast Skies Through the Evening

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (WAGM) - Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday. We had some heavy rain move through the area overnight. In far eastern portions of the county, they picked up just over an inch of rain since midnight in Presque Isle. In western portions of the county, they picked up around a half inch in some places. That is because the bulk of the rain came through that area before midnight. We do need the rain in some places, but this was too much to receive all at once. That is why the national weather service had placed us in a flood watch overnight. All of this was courtesy of a low pressure system that stretched all the way across the country into the Midwest. We will have some more chances for rain today, but they will be isolated and won’t really add to our rainfall totals. Any shower that moves through will be short lived. Into the overnight hours, we will be left with some clouds blanketing the region. High pressure is in place to our south and that will allow us to see the sun in the near future.
