    Early Cold Descending Upon Maine, But Is It Record Breaking?

    As colder air filtered into Maine early this morning some ice formed on the roadways and made the morning commute a bit slick. As our storm of yesterday heads north, a new air mass of below average air temperatures is headed for Maine. Cold, bitter, frigid, arctic blast and of course polar vortex are words we are all hearing a lot of this week. You might be wondering, is this […]

    Snow To Rain Followed By Winter Cold

    Our snowy morning is going to quickly transition into a wet day. Warmer air is pushing north and west from the coastline and will change the snow to rain quickly. The mountains will see a few inches of snow, but even there a changeover is likely. The map below gives a general idea of snowfall before the change to rain. Travel will be slowed by the snow west of the […]

    Quick Hitting Storm Will Bring Rain and Snow Monday, Then Colder Again

    Cold and plenty of it continues to flow into the United States today with a flow of air from the north. Another blast of arctic air is entering the country across the Rockies and this air will flow east and be with us much of this week. Today is a milder day than yesterday when most areas where in the 30s all day long. These kinds of temperatures are more […]

    Snow Ending This Morning, Sunshine Returns This Afternoon

    Snow is falling across many areas pre-sunrise, but is already ending west the Maine Turnpike and will over in the Portland area by 9AM. Generally look for up to 3 inches of snow in the higher elevations with perhaps a bit more east of Bangor. Sunshine is going to be back during the afternoon and winds will also be brisk. I am expecting highs to reach upper 30s and there […]

    Some Snow Will Impact Friday Morning Commute

    Snow is in the forecast for the Friday morning commute and this will be the first time we have seen an impact to a commute from snow this season. The initial snowfall of the season always creates a lot of noise. Although some of us have seen the grass turn white already (two weeks ago on a Sunday), this snow will be more widespread. Today is a nice day and […]

    Nearly flawless weather this Veteran’s Day, but colder air is coming

    On this Veteran’s Day we are looking at some great weather across all of New England, with the mildest air from southern and central Maine. Northern areas of the region will be cold with highs only near 40F. Sunshine will be abundant and, with light winds, it’s going to be a great day. Some of you are not working and I suggest making good use of the short amount of […]

    Mid-November: Brisk & Sunny Weekend

    I was driving on the highway last night around 4:30. Everyone had their lights on, the roads were wet and it really felt like nighttime already. It’s funny how this time of year after 5:30PM I feel like I should be all hunkered down in my house, but six months from now I won’t think twice about going out at 7:30 in the evening. The darkness really does impact how […]

    Predictions For The Upcoming Winter: 2014-2015

    Now that many of us in New England have seen our first snowflakes it’s a good time to turn our attention to what the overall winter might bring. If the major snowstorm in eastern and northern Maine is any indication, this is going to be a very rough winter. Yet, before you get nervous or excited, early snows do not necessarily foretell a severe winter. Some would argue early snow […]

    First Snow Of Season Is A Big Storm For Parts Of Maine

    This morning we find an intense low pressure system southeast of Nantucket. This storm is bringing a variety of weather to southern Maine with wind, rain and snow all occurring this morning. The center of the storm is located far enough away so that the bulk of the precipitation is staying off the coast and will impact Downeast Maine the most. There is a sharp line between no precipitation and […]
