WEATHER SUMMARY FOR MAINE AND NEW HAMPSHIRE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAY MAINE
400 PM EDT THU JUL 31 2014

ANOTHER ROUND OF SHOWERS...AND SOME THUNDERSTORMS...MOVED INTO MAINE
AND NEW HAMPSHIRE IN THE LATE MORNING AND EARLY AFTERNOON THURSDAY.
ANOTHER DISTURBANCE...ROTATING AROUND LOW PRESSURE NORTH OF THE
GREAT LAKES...WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS LATEST ROUND OF STORMS.  BY
EVENING...THAT DISTURBANCE WILL RACE INTO NORTHERN MAINE...AND
SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL RAPIDLY DIMINISH.  BEFORE THEIR ARRIVAL...
MOST AREAS SAW ENOUGH SUN TO PUSH TEMPERATURES INTO THE LOWER TO
MIDDLE 70S.

AFTER THE SHOWERS AND STORMS DRY UP THIS EVENING...ALL AREAS WILL
WATCH THE CLOUDS DRY UP AS WELL...AND TEMPERATURES WILL COOL TO THE
50S.  THE MAIN LOW NORTH OF THE GREAT LAKES...WILL LIFT WELL UP INTO
CANADA...ALLOWING HIGH PRESSURE OUT IN THE ATLANTIC...TO BETTER
ESTABLISH ITSELF.  THIS MEANS FAIR WEATHER WITH ONLY A SMALL CHANCE
OF ANY PRECIPITATION...AS THE AIR OVERHEAD REMAINS COOL FOR THIS
TIME OF YEAR.

A WARM FRONT APPROACHES SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND ON SATURDAY...BUT WILL
TAKE ITS TIME MOVING NORTH.  ANY PRECIPITATION WITH THE FRONT WILL
LIKELY HOLD OFF UNTIL SUNDAY.  AFTER THAT...COOLER DRIER AIR FLOWS
IN BEHIND THAT SYSTEM AS WE START THE NEW WEEK...BRINGING A RETURN
TO FAIR BUT COOL SUMMER WEATHER.
