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.

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.

There's nothing complicated about it, you just need to read the road signs. For some, that's clearly too much of a task. It's a small intersection in The County that, at times, can make a driver's blood boil. The convergence of the Presque Isle Road (Route 163) and Route 11 is nothing crazy. There isn't an elaborate traffic pattern, there's only one stop sign, and it isn't all that busy. There's even a sign that explains how the flow of traffic works, but people clearly don't read said sign.
