Severe thunderstorms could bring damaging winds, hail, and isolated tornadoes Wednesday to Maine.

A warm front will be moving through the area early Wednesday morning. Clouds, showers, and drizzle are possible early in the day. Clouds should break for hazy sunshine, especially in southern and western Maine.

Afternoon sun will help destabilize the atmosphere. With an approaching cold front, it’s the perfect recipe for numerous thunderstorms to develop later Wednesday.

Thunderstorms should move into the mountains around 3 p.m. and approach southern and central Maine 5-7 p.m. The threat for severe weather will diminish around 8 p.m. as the front moves south and we lose the daytime heating.

Damaging winds, hail, and tornadoes are all possible in any storms that turn severe.

Clouds and a few showers are expected Wednesday night. Lower humidity and more seasonable temperatures return for Thursday.
