His Kerouac presentation […]

    The Maine Forecast - Wednesday Apr 15, 2015 | 10:17 am

    Picture perfect weather continues today.

    Already 60F before noon, it’s going to be another great day here in southern Maine. There are several aspects of the weather of interest on this mid-April morning not least of which is the stunning day we are enjoying. April can be such a miserable month. There are years where it rains for days on end or it’s cold or we don’t see much sunshine. While the beginning of the […]

    One more warm day then those April showers arrive.

    Did you enjoy the weather yesterday? If you didn’t think yesterday was a flawless April day, I’m not sure how much better it could have been this time of the year. Porltand reached a high of 68F for one of the warmest days since last fall. It was even more impressive when you think about the fact it was 29F to start the day! The snow is mostly gone, although […]

    Feeling of spring on the way this weekend

    I’m sitting in my office with a winter hat on this morning. It’s cold in the house and while I could put the heat up further, I feel like it’s less about the actual temperature and more about the damp and raw feeling to the air this week. Portland and much of the area is averaging about 3 degrees below average during the first 9 days of April. Today will […]

    Dutremble tribute to Pepere Honore in Biddeford

    Dennis “Duke” Dutremble of Biddeford posted a poignant social networking tribute that caught my attention.  So I followed up. “A Dutremble Family Historical Fact” he wrote. “On this day, April 8, 1932, Biddeford Patrolman Honore Dutremble was killed on the corner of South and Kossuth Streets while performing his duties as a Biddeford police officer. Today, with his daughter, Yvette, all of his grand-children, great-grand-children, great, great- grand-children, and all […]

    April snow on the way, but so is milder weather

    A cold morning with a brisk breeze reminds us that it’s still early April. There were even more sub-zero readings in northern Maine earlier today. Temperatures right now are still only in the upper 30s. A series of fronts will act as the focal point for small areas of low pressure and associated precipitation through Friday. As New England transitions from the cooler side of these boundaries to the warmer […]

    Record cold morning across parts of Maine.

    4 below zero, that’s the new record established this morning in Caribou. Not only was this a record for today, it also set a new benchmark chill for the month of April. Now, certainly Caribou isn’t close to Portland or southern Maine. You’d need to drive about 300 miles to get there. If you went the same distance south you’d be approaching Philadelphia where spring is in full swing. However, […]

    Frustrating Pattern Of Cold and Wet Weather On The Way

    An unsettled period of weather, beginning with the showers this morning, is going to last for much of the upcoming week. While it’s not going to snow or rain the entire week, precipitation is in the forecast most days through the upcoming 7 to 9 days. The reason for the inclement weather will be a frontal system stuck to our south. This front divides cold winter air from warm spring […]

    Passover-Easter Weekend Brings A Return To Chilly Weather

    You should enjoy today, because it’s going to be a while before we see this kind of warmth again. More snow melted my yard, although I still have a solid foot in most of the front and about 6 to 8 inches of it on the back. There will be significant snow loss through tomorrow mid-day before the pace of melting slows to a crawl for much of next week. […]
