Heavy rain is headed into Maine to close out the weekend.

Rain is expected to cover much of the state by early Sunday morning, and downpours mean that many areas will get an inch or two of rain, James Brown, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Gray, said Saturday night.

Brown said winds off the water will keep temperatures cool, mostly in the 50s on Sunday. It will warm up on Monday, with highs in the 60s, but some showers will still be around, Brown said.

In fact, the first half of the week will be unsettled with a chance of showers, he said, although it will start to warm up, with temperatures in the 70s from Tuesday through the end of the week. Skies should start to clear Wednesday, he said.

Brown said a front will approach the state next Saturday, touching off some showers, but it’s too early to say whether it will arrive around sundown Saturday, when many communities will have fireworks displays to mark Independence Day.
