Presque Isle, Maine (WAGM) – Good evening, everyone. Congratulations on the first day of autumn. Looking at some of the rainfall reports we’ve seen so far today, many communities report he’s getting close to, if not half an inch more. This is much-needed rain, and can keep you on track for monthly rainfall. Communities in the central part of the county seem to have had the most rain. This is thanks to heavy downpours this morning and steady rains in the afternoon. I don’t think I will add much more to these totals. Most communities see the addition of a few inches of commas.
This evening’s weather set shows cold front and shower activity continuing into this afternoon. This cold front is moving through the county as we speak and will eventually allow the winds to turn northwest behind the front. It will begin to hit the region on Saturday, but is stagnation in the west thanks to Hurricane Fiona, rising along the coast and making landfall in Nova Scotia and parts of the east. New Brunswick. This will result in windy weather both tomorrow and Saturday, with the potential for maximum gusts during the day on Saturday.
As the wind shifts to the northwest, temperatures are likely to cool even more quickly to the low 30s in the north and west, and to the mid-40s in the south and east. The showers will taper off, but cloud cover is likely to continue into tomorrow. This actually works in our favor and prevents us from getting colder than otherwise. , the entire county will have cloudy skies for the rest of the night. Clouds will remain like this until tomorrow morning, and it looks like tomorrow will be the beginning of a cloudy and windy day. This evening’s additional rainfall will not be much, but the eastern part of the county could receive an additional two-tenths of an inch. This can result in some places exceeding the inch mark in terms of precipitation. Tomorrow’s temperature will not be very warm with cloud cover and strong winds blowing all day. Highs look like he’ll be in his late 40s and his early 50s by the afternoon. We can’t rule out the possibility of the clouds breaking up, especially by the afternoon, but so far the computer model has been stubbornly overcast and has remained in place for most of the day.
Hurricane Fiona remains in the Atlantic Ocean as a Category 4 storm. As it moves northward over the next few days, it is likely to actually make landfall and affect parts of Nova Scotia and eastern New Brunswick. Due to the system being so close during the day on Saturday, it appears to be affecting the weather and is a major contributor to Saturday’s gusty winds. Some issued hurricane and tropical storm watches. We don’t see any impact on the amount of precipitation, but we can expect some winds as a storm is approaching. That’s why the National Weather Service issued a high wind warning for the southern and eastern halves of the county through Saturday night due to concerns about these gusts. This can cause several isolated power outages as trees and limbs fall due to the wind.
