thanks for watching a meteorologist, Jacqueline Thomas, heading through the day today. Beautiful conditions. We’ve got a good amount of sunshine out there today, and it’s pleasantly warm to the humidity. Not too bad and temperatures climbing into the low and mid eighties through this afternoon. As we head into tomorrow, I expect more clouds around and the chance for a shower, especially as we head towards Sunday night and into early Monday. So with the storm tracker here over these next few days, we do stay mainly quiet through tonight into the day Sunday. But you’ll notice by tomorrow evening. A few showers could pop up, and as we head through Sunday night and early Monday, we could see there. Showers move through with mainly dry conditions as we end out our day on Monday. Now, of course, we’ve been keeping our eye on the tropics with PCs because you’ll notice rain. Chances really take a jump up as we head towards Tuesday and Wednesday, when we could see the potential forcing tropical impacts with this storm. So keeping an eye on this as we head through the weekend, you’re gonna want to continue to check back for these updates here because the track of this, of course, becomes a bit more uncertain the further out we go. So for now, keeping up to date with the forecast and making note of any changes is what you need to do. And as we get a little bit closer will be able to find tune that forecast. And I know a little bit more about what we can actually expect here. But for now, it does look like we’ll at least see the potential for some heavy rainfall as we head through Tuesday or until Wednesday and then, depending on the track of that storm, we could also be looking at the possibility of some winds or flooding impacts as well, of course, all things that will be keeping our eyes on.

Tropical Storm Isaias could bring heavy rain, wind to Maine next week

Hurricane Isaias has weakened back to a Tropical Storm as of the 5:00 PM update from the National Hurricane Center, after hitting the Bahamas as a category 1 hurricane. Isaias continues to track across the Atlantic, currently heading towards the southeastern United States. The storm is expected to re-strengthen into a hurricane again Saturday night. Hurricane conditions are expected along parts of the Florida east coast late Saturday and a hurricane warning is in effect there, where dangerous storm surge will also be possible. The current track takes Isaias up the east coast, potentially impacting the Carolinas early next week. This track is something to watch closely, as we could see impacts from this storm here in Maine by Wednesday. The biggest impact will be heavy, tropical rains and the potential for gusty winds. There is uncertainty at this point in terms of what we could see and when, since the track of this storm can change and there is greater inconsistency towards the end of that cone. The most noticeable changes this morning are a very slight eastward shift and a slower progression. Stay tuned through the weekend for the latest updates.
