Downeast Maine is expected to receive the remnants of Hurricane Ida with 3 plus inches of rain. There is a Flash Flood Watch in effect through this evening. The heaviest of the rain is expected this morning.

Remember don't drive through deep water. Please be sure that your headlights are on when your windshield wipers are turned on. You're going to need both today!

Also, Ellsworth and AOS 91 schools are back in session. Be careful of buses and children. Just a reminder to stop, even on 4 lane roads when the school bus lights are flashing.
