It's a level 1 out of 5 (1 being the lowest, 5 being the highest) from Calais to Bangor, Bar Harbor, Augusta, Portland, and the southern coast.
Watch for level 2 for the foothills, central mountains, and western mountains to points north.
The timeline for Sunday's severe weather potential is afternoon through evening with damaging wind, large hail, and even isolated, brief tornadoes (north).
