WEATHER SUMMARY FOR MAINE AND NEW HAMPSHIRE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAY MAINE
345 PM EDT TUE JUL 22 2014

THE BIG HIGH THAT PROVIDED A COUPLE OF COOL NIGHTS TO THE
REGION...WAS OFFSHORE TUESDAY AFTERNOON...AND WARMER AND MUCH MORE
HUMID AIR WAS MOVING INTO NEW ENGLAND IN ITS WAKE.  A FLOW OFF THE
OCEAN MANAGED TO KEEP THINGS COOLER NEAR THE COAST...WHERE AFTER
REACHING THE 80S...TEMPERATURES COOLED BACK INTO THE 70S.  INLAND
HOWEVER...READINGS TOPPED OUT WELL INTO THE 80S...AND A FEW SPOTS
REACHED 90 OR A LITTLE BETTER.

AFTER A WARM AND HUMID NIGHT...MORE OF THE SAME LOOKS TO BE ON TAP
FOR WEDNESDAY...WITH TEMPERATURES AROUND 90 DEGREES AND DEW POINTS
AROUND 70 DEGREES. THIS WILL MAKE FOR AN EVEN MORE UNCOMFORTABLE
DAY. THE HOT AND HUMID AIR...IN CONJUNCTION WITH AN APPROACHING COLD
FRONT...WILL SET THE STAGE FOR AFTERNOON AND EVENING SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS. SOME OF THESE THUNDERSTORMS MAY HAVE DAMAGING WINDS
AND LARGE HAIL IS A POSSIBILITY AS WELL.

MUCH COOLER AND DRIER AIR MOVES IN BEHIND THE FRONT LATER WEDNESDAY
EVENING INTO THURSDAY MORNING...AND STAYS WITH US FOR SEVERAL
DAYS...AS HIGH PRESSURE MOVES FROM THE PLAINS TO THE ATLANTIC...
THURSDAY INTO SATURDAY.

SOME OF THAT HEAT AND HUMIDITY TRIES TO MOVE UP FROM THE SOUTH
DURING THE SECOND HALF OF THE WEEKEND...BEFORE IT IS ONCE AGAIN
SUPPRESSED SOUTHWARD EARLY NEXT WEEK.
