Hancock County Forecast – September 30, 2020

Wednesday has been a stormy day as a strong cold front moved through with gusty south winds ranging between 30 to 40mph and much needed rain. The windy weather did leave to a few power outages through the day mainly around the peak of the wind during the late morning and early afternoon. The bullseye for rainfall totals were across western Maine with many spots near or above 1″ with just 1/10″ to 1/4″ of rain for many in the Midcoast and Downeast. The front will continue east through late Wednesday with peaks of sun possible before sunset. We’ll see more clearing on Thursday with sunshine peaking through the clouds, lighter winds, and highs in the mid 60s to low 70s. This will be followed by another chance for rain showers late in the day Friday as a weaker cold front moves through. High pressure will build in for the weekend returning us to partly to mostly sunny skies with highs eventually dipping into the 50s by Sunday with lows into the 30s with lower humidity. We’ll see another chance of rain on Monday.
