    (Published Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2018)

    The decaying remnant of Tropical Storm Gordon was absorbed by a warm front that is pushing across Maine Tuesday morning.

    In Maine, we have elements of heavier rain much of the day. But for most of New England, rain is tapering to showers and a thunderstorm with a few sunny breaks.

    Temperatures warm into the 70s and near 80. The front in Maine stalls Tuesday and sinks back to the south on Wednesday. It will not have as much moisture available, but the chance of showers should continue mostly in Central and Southern New England.

    Even on Thursday, we have the front in southern New England with cooler air and a few showers. It will be brighter to the north. At the same, we'll start to dry out later Thursday into Friday, when Hurricane Florence will likely make landfall.

    High pressure from Canada creates a block keeping the remnant of Florence well to our south and New England actually slides into a nice stretch of weather for the upcoming weekend. This weekend's high temperatures will near 80 and offer fair skies.

    Any leftover rain from Hurricane Florence will likely take until next Monday or Tuesday to reach New England in our exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast and would be significantly weakened by then.
