NOAA Posts High Wind Warning For Coastal Maine
Whoops, there goes the lawn furniture.
The National Weather Service has posted a high wind warning for both coastal Hancock and Washington Counties, and a wind advisory for most of interior Maine. The warning and advisory remains in effect until 8 tonight.
Downeast, expect winds out of the south between 20 and 30 mph with gusts up to 60 mph. Meanwhile in Bangor, southerly winds will average between 15 and 25 mph with gusts up to 45 mph.
A gale warning remains in effect for the Gulf of Maine.
You can expect rain today in the Bangor area with a high temperature of 70 degrees. It will be clearing tonight and the winds will be subsiding significantly, with an overnight low temp down to 49. Mostly sunny skies are expected Thursday with a high of 70 degrees, although the winds will be picking up again and gusting as high as 21 mph.
So far it looks as though we'll experience mostly sunny skies both Saturday and Sunday, so that's cause for celebration.
