It looks like another pretty big winter storm is preparing to move into the Pine Tree State later today. Fortunately (or unfortunately?) it's not going to come in the form of several inches of snow. Instead, this storm will produce a considerable amount of rain and bring along very gusty winds.

According to WMTW's, Sarah Long, we can expect the large portion of this storm to begin moving into Maine later tonight and stay with us right through tomorrow. The storm will begin to dump rain on Central Maine around 9 o'clock Thursday evening and the winds will begin to pick up through the overnight.

Wind inland will gust from the low to mid 40s according to WMTW News 8. However, the further east you move from Central Maine towards the midcoast, those same gusts will pack more intensity and are likely to reach 50+ miles per hour.
