    Fine Memorial Day weekend in the forecast

    The sun has been up for hours as I start the Friday morning blog of Memorial Day weekend. These weekends are notorious for not being perfect. Late May is typically not a completely warm or dry time of year. The fact the weekend is coming somewhat early makes lowers the likelihood of an entirely warm weekend further. However, odds are not perfect and the upcoming holiday weekend will be better […]

    Dry weather continues through Memorial Day

    Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start to summer and this upcoming weekend the weather will cooperate. Since I know most of you want sunshine and pleasant conditions, I’ll use terms like great weekend, perfect for outdoor activities, nice start to summer etc. to describe the upcoming forecast. Cloudy Friday Tomorrow won’t be even close to a washout, but there is the risk of showers and even a thunderstorm. A […]

    Dry weather continues, so does winter moth damage in some areas

    The weather the rest of the week and into the weekend looks dry and mostly sunny. Except for some chilly mornings, with some frost possible away from the coast, it’s nearly a perfect pattern for outdoor activities. The landscape continues to look more and more like summer and many of the trees have their leaves close to full size. Chomping green worms If you live along the coast of from […]

    The dry sunny weather ahead is good depending on your perspective

    In the news world, expect for commentators, anchors are supposed to just report the facts and not add their own personal adjectives about the news. In the weather world, we do both. Words like great days, wonderful weather; lousy, hot, cool, cold, miserable, and fantastic, routinely enter into the lexicon of anyone reporting the weather. I’m not so sure this is avoidable; we are human with our own sense of […]

    All of Maine is now in abnormally dry status.

    This time of year, at times, it actually can take me a bit longer to think about what to write in the blog. I mean, in winter it becomes obvious because so many of you are interested in the cold and snow. Most of the spring, summer or fall, we don’t tend to have big storms, except of course the occasional bought of severe weather or even less common a […]

    Les fleurs de Mai – a Mother’s Day tradition

    “Il y a des fleurs partout pour qui veut bien les voir.” This beautiful quote is from the acclaimed French artist Henri Mattise (1969-1954). Translated, it means, “There are flowers everywhere for those who want to see them.” We see flowers everywhere on Mother’s Day. Flowers are popping up in nature gardens throughout Maine. Brilliant assorted arrangements are available for purchase from florists and at many kiosks.  It’s like the […]

    Stellar begining of May roles on into the weekend

    What a May so far. I know we are only on our 6th day of the month, but the past few days have been so wonderful, it certainly helps remind everyone why Maine is such a great place when the weather is warm. Of course, ice fishing, skiing and snowmobiling are wonderful as well. There are a couple of downsides to all the nice weather. The fire danger and pollen […]
