There's not too many major worries when it comes to the forecast this week, most of the weather will follow along with the typical summer time pattern.

A round of scattered showers and thunderstorms on Monday will be likely through the afternoon, as is typically the case it won't be overly blanketing but watching the radar won't be a bad idea.

The showers will be heat driven popping up in the late morning/early afternoon and lasting until the sun sets and we lose our heating.

Keep an eye out for lightning which will be the biggest issue along with a downpour or two once the storms get going.

Temperatures will be hanging around 90 Monday afternoon with a heat index that pushes into the triple digits by the end of the afternoon.

Showers will increase on Tuesday with an upper level disturbance dropping in from the north in the morning, but a quick return to normal by the end of the week.

A quick note on the tropics the NHC is keeping tabs on a disturbed area in the Caribbean but this will pose no threat to Acadia.
