Things could get a little wet on the Bangor Waterfront this evening!

First off, a big congrats to all our ticket winners for the Backstreet Boys concert that is happening tonight, at Maine Savings Amphitheatre. We gave away a bunch on the Z Morning Show, and through our Z App. Everyone that won seemed very excited to attend this show, but be forewarned, there is a chance of a thunderstorm, either during the late afternoon or evening hours.

Let's all hope this isn't the case, but there is an easy way to be prepared if it does come down on us.

I recall going to many a show on the Bangor Waterfront that called for showers, so I always have made a point to stop by any of the many dollar stores we have in the area, to grab one of those cheap rain ponchos. I mostly did this to stay dry of course, but it is much easier to navigate than a heavy raincoat, especially when it is humid out there.

Sure, they don’t make much of a fashion statement, but they do get the job done for the most part. Turns out lots of people have the same idea, so it is best to get them as early in the day as possible, because they tend to sell out of them on concert days that call for rain. More than likely you can find these at Walmart too, but in and out of a small store for a buck and change ain't a bad idea.

An added bonus, they come in a small package that will fit in your pocket!

Here are the Bangor area dollar stores where you can find them:

  • Dollar Tree-276 State St, Bangor
  • Family Dollar-89 State St, Bangor
  • Dollar General-674 Main Rd Hampden
  • Dollar Tree-1115 Union St, Bangor
  • Dollar Tree-642 Stillwater Ave, Bangor
  • Dollar Tree-276 State St, Brewer

Or, if you are a crafty type of person, we found a DIY video, so you can make your own.

Here is how the forecast breaks down for today:

A mix of clouds and sunshine in the morning with more clouds for later in the day. A stray shower or thunderstorm is possible. High 85.

Tonight, partly to mostly cloudy skies with scattered thunderstorms possible before midnight. Low 67.

Stay dry and enjoy the show tonight!!
