PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Recent record-setting warm temperatures throughout northern New England are finally cooling off.

Temperatures are beginning to cool down amid rainfall Thursday. The National Weather Service warns of coastal flooding amid heavy rainfall in Maine and New Hampshire.

The National Weather Service says Burlington, Vermont, on Wednesday saw a record high of 82 degrees. The previous 81-degree record was set in 1909.

Portland, Maine, reached 84 degrees Wednesday afternoon, compared to an 81-degree record in 2011. New Hampshire’s most populous city of Manchester reached 84 degrees, while the National Weather Service says the city typically has temperatures in the 60s this time of year.

A cold front may be coming in this weekend, with frost possible Saturday night.

This story has been corrected to show Manchester is New Hampshire’s most populous city, not its capital.
