Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northern and Eastern Maine
National Weather Service Caribou ME
217 PM EDT Sun Aug 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Any lingering showers will end early this evening. Tonight will
become mostly clear across the area. This will give way to a mostly
sunny and very warm day on Monday with highs in the low to mid 80s
across inland areas. The air will remain humid with dew points near
60. Tuesday will be warm, humid and breezy as a large storm system
tracks up to our northwest. Some showers and thunderstorms are
likely across northern areas late in the day. Showers and
thunderstorms are likely Tuesday night into early Wednesday as the
low to our north pulls a strong cold front through. Skies should
become mostly clear Wednesday afternoon following the frontal
passage. Mainly dry weather is likely Thursday into the weekend.
