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

A COLD FRONT ENTERED NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON...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 TRAVERSED MOST AREAS
OF OUR TWO STATES BEFORE DARK.  SOME OF THE STORMS REACHED SEVERE
LIMITS TAKING DOWN MANY TREES AND WIRES.

THE COLD FRONT WILL LIE JUST OFFSHORE BY THURSDAY MORNING...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.
