    What’s causing Maine’s current nor’easter?

    One question you might ask during this major storm is how and why did this form? If you saw a forecast as recently as Friday, meteorologists thought this storm would stay mostly out to sea, obviously that isn’t the case. Let me explain why the storm formed and then why it’s hitting and moving so slowly. Storm formation You have likely heard of the jet stream. This is the band […]

    Big snowfall for coastal and interior Maine begins late tonight

    It’s a waiting game at this point. There’s no way we aren’t going to see a major storm, it’s just a question of how major. I don’t think this is going to be a top five storm for Portland as the heaviest amount of precipitation looks like it will stay just to our south. Storms like this where everyone gets a lot of snow, still have pockets where there is even more […]

    Snow Ending This Evening, Potentially Larger Storm Tuesday Into Wednesday

    Did you enjoy today’s snow? It’s rather nice to see the ground clean and white again. While today’s storm was the first snow we’ve had to plow in a while, winter is about to take a more serious turn. Let’s talk about the snow we are seeing now first. I expect our Saturday storm to be over later this evening as the final bands of snow rotate through southern and […]

    Moderate Snowstorm For Saturday, Bright And Sunny Sunday

    A quick hitting nor’easter will bring mostly snow to southern Maine through the afternoon and early evening with a moderate accumulation of snow. As of 9AM, snow was breaking out across southern Maine and will become heavy quite quickly after it begins. I expect roads to become hazardous and you will want to have completed your errands before noon to avoid the worst of the weather conditions. This is a […]

    Winter Storm Warning For Saturday

    As of this evening the winter storm is still on the docket for Saturday afternoon and the first half of the overnight. There is going to be a narrow band of 6 inch plus snow totals along the coast and areas around Portland are likely to be in this band. The snowfall map below gives a good idea how much snow will fall during this roughly 12 hour storm. Looks […]

    Glancing blow from Saturday’s ocean storm

    This evening confidence is growing that Coastal Maine will see some accumulating snow Saturday afternoon and at least the first part of the overnight. I have put together a first look at accumulations, but this will likely be refined tomorrow as I get new information. A track further west, closer to the coast, would mean higher snow amounts while a shift east would lower these numbers. More on Friday. Morning […]

    After the brief thaw, quiet weather continues into the weekend

    Tuesday will be a quite day overall with a busy breeze, but overall there are no big weather makers across the Northeast with a weak front crossing the area during the day. Winds will slacken overnight with a cold feeling to the air. With mostly clear skies, some areas will see radiational cooling. Most areas fall back into the teens, but there will be some single numbers well inland. With the […]

    2014 Was Another Warmer Than Average Year Across The Globe, Now What?

    The internet is abuzz, 2014 was the warmest year on record and the way some in the media are portraying this, you might think the planet was going to be ice and snow free by next Tuesday. The fact that 2014 was warmer than the other two previous record years 2005 and 2010, is but one small data point. It does however show the planet is continuing warm, as it […]
