It's been really beautiful since Tropical Storm Lee paid us a visit the weekend of September 15-16. That's going to change on Saturday, as Maine feels the impact of the remnants of Tropical Storm Philippe.

According to the National Weather Service in Caribou, Downeast Maine can expect 3 to 4 inches of rain Saturday into Sunday.

With the trees full of leaves, storm drains have the real possibility of becoming clogged leading to localized flooding.

The majority of the rain is expected to arrive late Saturday afternoon into the evening  and overnight.

The good news is that by Sunday afternoon, the weather should be clearing and Monday, Indigenous People's Day, looks to be partly sunny, although a bit cooler with highs in the upper 50's.

LOOK: How Halloween has changed in the past 100 years

Stacker compiled a list of ways that Halloween has changed over the last 100 years, from how we celebrate it on the day to the costumes we wear trick-or-treating. We’ve included events, inventions, and trends that changed the ways that Halloween was celebrated over time. Many of these traditions were phased out over time. But just like fake blood in a carpet, every bit of Halloween’s history left an impression we can see traces of today.
