Scattered Severe Storms Expected for Wednesday
The U.S. National Weather Service is warning Mainer's of coming storms for Wednesday evening.
The U.S. National Weather Service out of Caribou says warmer temperatures with clear skies will start Wednesday as a warm front moves through the state. Humidity will increase as a "disturbance approaches from the west."
The Facebook post published Tuesday by the U.S. National Weather Service Caribou ME predicted heavy rain in Downeast Maine and added more details about what threats to expect:
Into Wednesday evening, there is a chance for a few scattered strong to severe storms, as outlined by the Storm Prediction Center's Slight Risk area. The main threat will be strong winds, although small hail is possible as well. Showers and storms will also have chance to bring heavy rain to the area. For now, the most favorable region for heavy rain appears to be across Downeast Maine through Wednesday night.
It is predicted that humidity will subside by this weekend, while WABI TV5 is even mentioning a feeling of fall this weekend.
