Tropical Storm Fay To Breeze By Western Maine
There's a storm brewing over the east Atlantic coast and moving north.
Tropical Storm Fay has formed and is now off the Delaware-Maryland coast but moving quickly. Tropical storm warnings have been issued for parts of New England, New York, and New Jersey. Those located in the track of Tropical Storm Fay can expect up to eight inches of rain and 45 mile per hour winds.
The National Weather Service tells us that western Maine may experience thunderstorms with gusty winds and heavy downpours associated with the storm. Otherwise, here in the Bangor area we can expect showers throughout Saturday with a chance of a passing afternoon thunderstorm, and a partly sunny Sunday with a chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms as well. Temperatures on Saturday up to 75 degrees and then a little warmer by Sunday with a high of 81. Fay is now the 6th storm to be named during the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season, the earliest that a 6th storm has ever been named. Meanwhile, even after the rains of late a moderate drought continues in our area of Maine, so any showers expected to occur this coming weekend should help that situation.
