    Cool and sometimes unsettled weather closes out April

    There are numerous showers with some embedded downpours this morning over central Maine as a storm system over southern Canada moves slowly north. To the south, clearing skies are ushered in behind this same system as the showers ended in the pre-dawn hours. In the mountains there was some snow overnight. Our weather pattern has changed and what’s old is new again. We are in many ways back to the […]

    Heaviest rain has ended, but showers linger

    Heavy rain has now lifted north of Greater Portland with lingering showers still possible this morning over southern sections and much of the day east of Rockland. A frontal system that divides the cool marine air from milder air continue to push north. The overall weather system has brought a lot of rain to the region over the past 24 hours with a record 2.20 inches of rainfall yesterday and […]

    Some sun and some rain this weekend, more significant rain next week.

    I’ll get to the weather in a minute, but first, did you see the new Star Wars trailer yet? I remember the summer of 1977 when my parents took me to the new film. That initial scene when the words scrolled across the screen horizontally in a way I had never seen before was pretty awesome. Little did I know, the next two hours would be a thrill ride unlike […]

    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 […]

    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 […]
