After a dreary start to Tuesday, breaks of sun will help touch off some showers and thunderstorms this afternoon.

Most storms are not expected to turn severe this afternoon, but a few could contain locally strong wind gusts and small hail. Western Maine has an “isolated” risk for severe storms. All storms have the potential to produce heavy rainfall and lightning.

The best chance for storms exists from 2 to 8 p.m. Once the sun sets this evening, those showers and storms will start to dissipate.

A cold front sweeps through our area tonight, and high pressure builds in by early tomorrow. This will bring a return to bright sunshine and seasonable temperatures.
