Weather – Fog and Heavy Rain Friday July 9
Downeast Maine was waking up to heavy fog, as seen in this picture taken from Dysart's Marina in Southwest Harbor via Barharborcam.com
Downeast Maine should be preparing for rain, and lots of it especially this afternoon, as the remnants of Tropical Storm Elsa will be heading over Maine.
There is a Flash Flood Watch in effect from 8 am Friday July 9th to 8 a.m. on Saturday, July 10th. As you can see from the above graphic, Downeast Maine can possibly receive 3 to 4 inches of rain. This is the kind of rain that washed out roads and caused culverts to fail in late June.
You have got to love Downeast humor
There is also a High Surf Advisory in effect from 2 p.m. Friday afternoon to 2 p.m. Saturday. While the first tendency might be to head to Thunder Hole in Acadia National Park, remember to follow all signs and directions from officials.
Back in August 2009 people were washed off the rocks, wave watching, and tragically a 7 year old drowned
This was the scene shortly before this tragic accident, and you can see that these 2 were lucky!
