Maine Will See Gusty Winds & Frigid Temps on Wednesday Night
Just as we are starting to see the water levels in our swollen rivers drop, we are getting word that we have more nasty weather on the way.
According to an article on the WABI website, much of Maine will experience strong winds and a cold snap on Wednesday night into Thursday.
The article explains that Wednesday night's temperatures will be in the low-20s, but the wind chill will make it feel like the temperature is below zero.
The freezing temperatures pose a real danger to those who have not yet gotten their power back following Monday's storm, and to those who are forced to be outside.
For many, however, the bigger concern will be the return of strong winds. Much of Maine will experience 30 MPH gusts overnight on Wednesday into Thursday.
The winds will pick up even more on Thursday. There is a good chance that much of the state will experience 40 MPH gusts on Thursday.
Even though these gusts are not as strong as those experienced in Monday's storm, they are still strong enough to cause further power outages. Additionally, those winds will be strong enough to prevent power line workers from their continuing efforts to restore power throughout the state.
During the day on Thursday, most of Central Maine will have highs in the mid-30s. Keep in mind, though, that the wind will make the temperature feel much colder.
The article explains that it will still be windy on Friday, but not as bad as Wednesday night and Thursday. Friday will see sunny skies, temperatures in the 30s, and gusts of 25 miles-per-hour.
