    There’s 2 to 3 feet of snow on the ground … so when will it melt?

    There’s still a lot of snow on the ground and with cold and dry weather most of this week, there won’t be a lot of melting, but some of the snow is still going to disappear, even at subzero temperatures. By now nearly everyone knows the statistics. Since the 23rd of January more snow has fallen than would typically be had in an entire winter. Most areas have seen 80 […]

    Dry Saturday Start, Snowy Saturday Finish

    It’s another cold morning across the area with temperatures well below zero in some areas. Near Sanford and Fryeburg, readings are close to 20 below and that’s without the wind.

This upcoming system is going to be a bit different than those […]

    A chance of more snow this week, with cold a definite

    Over the weekend much of the area missed a big storm. While York County got hit hard, as did Down East Maine, the rest of the state skated by without much snow. Again today this is the case, as a storm passes safely out to sea to our south. However, this isn’t the end of this particular storm. The system will pull to the east this evening and take most […]

    Snow misses most of area, but York County sees heavy snowfall

    Well, many of you are waking up to significantly less snow that you expected. After the past couple of weeks, I’m sure there are not a lot of disappointed faces. Even the plow operators probably feel like they could use a break. However, not everyone got away without a large amount of snow.

    A welcome break from the big snow

    Recently, I wrote about the ‘Great Snow of 1717,’ a series of four storms in 10 days. When that event was over, Cotton Mather recounted stories of up to 5 feet of snow in Maine in what was an unprecedented snow event. Fast forward almost exactly 300 years and we have seen something similar. What’s transpired meteorologically the past 20 days is simply amazing. After recording our snowiest week in in […]
