The weather in Bangor is changing gears once again, with rain and wind replacing snow and freezing temperatures from over the weekend.

The National Weather Service’s Caribou office issued a wind advisory for Greater Bangor as well as parts of Hancock, Penobscot and Washington counties. Winds up to 50 mph are expected in those areas, and the advisory remains in effect until 8 p.m.

Eastern Maine will also face minor flooding as a result of the moderate rainfall Thursday. An additional ½ to ¾ of an inch of rain is forecast for the evening, adding to the urban and small stream flooding that is expected, according to the NWS.
