Minor coastal flooding is possible during high tide Monday morning. A few morning showers will be possible, scattered in coverage through the daytime hours with the front expected to move through by early evening.

The remnants of Hurricane Nate will bring steady rain across ME on Columbus Day, with half an inch to 1 inch forecast for Bangor and Down East.

Rainfall totals will likely be between 1-2 inches, which is totally manageable for the region given the recent dry spell, and in fact will be very beneficial. Tuesday's high will be close to 80. It has since moved north with heavy rain, according to the Associated Press.

However, with afternoon highs expected to remain into the upper 80s to lower 90s Wednesday through Friday and dew points in the low to mid 70s we cannot rule a few pop-up showers/storms each afternoon.

Wind gusts of 35 to 45 miles per hour will be possible across the mid-Atlantic to southern New England Monday night into Tuesday.

Rather cloudy and not as warm with a few periods of rain.

MORE SHOWERS: We'll quickly turn cloudy on Wednesday, and then, you'll see scattered showers in the afternoon. Highs in the low to mid 80s.

Former hurricane Nate has become a post-tropical cyclone that continues to pack heavy rain and gusty winds, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Monday. Chance of rain is 60 percent.

The remains of Nate are moving northeast and the much weakened low should track right over Central New York.

It now has maximum sustained winds of 20 miles per hour.
