WEATHER SUMMARY FOR MAINE AND NEW HAMPSHIRE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAY MAINE
330 PM EDT WED JUL 23 2014

A COLD FRONT WAS ON THE VERGE OF ENTERING NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND AT
MID AFTERNOON WEDNESDAY...AND WILL BRING BACK COOLER AIR THE NEXT
COUPLE OF DAYS.  TEMPERATURES MANAGED TO TOP 90 IN A FEW SPOTS
WEDNESDAY...AND MOVED WELL INTO THE 80S EVEN IN MANY COASTAL
LOCATIONS.  SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS FIRED ALONG THE CANADIAN
BORDER CLOSE TO MIDDAY...AND WILL TRAVERSE MOST AREAS OF OUR TWO
STATES BEFORE DARK.  SOME OF THE STORMS COULD REACH SEVERE LIMITS
AND A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH HAS BEEN HOISTED FOR THE EVENING.

THE COLD FRONT WILL LIE JUST OFFSHORE ON THURSDAY AS WEAK LOW
PRESSURE TRACKS TO THE NORTHEAST ALONG THE BOUNDARY. COOLER AND LESS
HUMID AIR WILL FILTER IN FROM CANADA ON THURSDAY...BUT THE PROXIMITY
OF THE FRONT AND LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL PROBABLY KEEP CLOUDS
AROUND MOST OF THE DAY...WITH MAYBE A FEW SHOWERS POSSIBLE ALONG THE
COAST.

THE FRONT FINALLY MOVES WELL OUT TO SEA AS HIGH PRESSURE MOVES IN
FROM THE WEST THURSDAY NIGHT. THIS WILL LET THE COOLER AND LESS
HUMID AIR FULLY OVERTAKE THE REGION. BY FRIDAY MORNING LOW
TEMPERATURES WILL RANGE FROM THE 40S NORTH TO THE 50S SOUTH.

THE HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM WORKS ITS WAY TO THE COAST FRIDAY NIGHT
THEN OUT TO SEA ON SATURDAY...STAYING WELL TO OUR SOUTH. THIS WILL
GRADUALLY BRING IN WARMER AIR ON SATURDAY BUT OUR WEATHER SHOULD
STAY DRY.

LOW PRESSURE APPROACHES FROM THE GREAT LAKES REGION BRINGING UNSETTLED
WEATHER WITH A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS FOR A PROLONGED
PERIOD OF TIME...FROM SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY.
