April showers bring … wait, April showers? Not this year. At least, not yet.

So far, the precip deficits that began over the winter have gotten worse.

Even in northern Maine, the area that is closest to normal for recorded precip, deficits have started showing up yet again.

We need rain. If this pattern continues, drought related issues may pop up in the early summer.

Wind comes out of the east and northeast on Monday. It could be breezy at times, especially right at the coastline. High temperatures will generally range from 50-55° for most.

Onshore flow continues Tuesday.

Originally, it looked like Tuesday would bring a chance for showers. Now, though, it just looks cloudy.

Highs will again be around 50-55°.

Clouds break a bit for Wednesday.

The afternoon should be warmer with the sunshine. Highs at the coastline will be around 55 degrees, while inland areas could make it slightly above 60. It will probably be the warmest day this week.

Signals point a cooler end to the week, with an increasing threat for showers on Friday. The best chance looks like the coastline, but rain could spread a bit further inland.

If it gets cold enough on the peaks, there might even be some snow that mixes in.

After Friday, the pattern trends dry with temperatures back in the 50s. Next Saturday and Sunday could be another really nice stretch of weather!
