Widespread showers Monday morning will give way to heavy downpours for the afternoon and evening. Minor flooding can’t be ruled out.

The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for portions of Maine and New Hampshire. Rainfall rates will be heaviest Monday afternoon and evening — up to an inch per hour at times. Some soils were previously saturated last week, which could quickly cause additional runoff, according to the NWS.

Highs will be in the mid to upper 60s.

Maine will see widespread rainfall across the area today and tonight. Expected rainfall amounts are 1 to 3 inches — perhaps up to 4 inches in some locations. A flood watch has been issued through Monday night for most of the area. However, heavy rainfall is possible outside the watch area. National Weather Service graphic

Tuesday will be much nicer, only a few showers may linger inland. Temperatures should be warmer, with highs in the low 70s.

Beautiful weather is then in store for Wednesday and the rest of the work week. Highs will be in the lower 70s, with sunny skies and dry air. Overnight lows will dip into the 40s later this week.

Slightly cooler weather arrives next weekend. Highs will drop into the upper 60s. It looks dry on Saturday, with our next shower chance on Sunday.
