A METEOROLOGIST WITH THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN GRAY, MAINE SAYS THERE ARE NO REPORTS OF MAJOR DAMAGE AFTER STRONG THUNDERSTORMS MOVED THROUGH THE VALLEY AREA AND WESTERN MAINE WEDNESDAY.

THE WEATHER SERVICE STARTED ISSUING SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENTS WARNING OF POSSIBLE STRONG THUNDERSTORMS IN THE AREA STARTING IN THE EARLY AFTERNOON.

CHRIS LEGROW SAYS THE STORMS WERE CAUSED BY A SLOW MOVING BOUNDARY WITH SOME DOWNED TREES REPORTED IN OXFORD COUNTY IN MAINE.

HE SAYS HE CAN’T GIVE A PRECIPITATION–FREE FORECAST FOR THE UPCOMING LABOR DAY WEEKEND AS THE BOUNDARY WILL TAKE ITS TIME CLEARING THE AREA – MEANING THE THREAT OF AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS WILL PERSIST THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
