    Showers Today, Turning Cooler This Weekend

    There are a lot of clouds this morning and temperatures are mild. There is a bit of humidity in the air, but certainly nothing oppressive. A southerly flow of air ahead of a cold front is bringing the somewhat tropical air to the region and will help boost temperatures to the upper 60s and lower 70s this afternoon. Some inland areas around Sanford could be slightly warmer if there is […]

    Fine September Weather Rolls On

    After last week’s mid-summer like heat and humidity this week is nearly a 180 degree turn. Again this morning temperatures were in the 40s to mid 50s with crisp air allowing for great sleeping weather without any heat. Our heating season usually begins sometime in October when the first cold morning and cold day forces many of us to turn on the burners. For now, the afternoons will be warm […]

    Warm and Humid Afternoon To Help Breed Thunderstorms

    Very warm and humid air continues to reside across New England this morning and will continue into the afternoon. At the same time, a cold front is marching eastward. This front marks the divide between the summer-like air over the region now and the cooler and more fall-like air which will be with us starting tomorrow. These two clashing air masses will raise the chances of showers and storms to […]

    Summer Weather Turns More Fall-Like This Weekend

    If you read my blog regularly you might have figured out I spend a bit of time in Harpswell. One of the things I love about that particular area is the morning light. This time of year we are losing light very fast on the order of close to 3 minutes a day. The sunrises are now after 6AM and will continue to grow later and later. Just before we […]

    Summer Pattern Rolls On Into The Weekend

    The weather we experience is mostly due to the position of the jet stream. It really doesn’t matter what time of year it is, if the jet stream is north, south, east or west of us we see different types of weather. During a typical summer, especially in July and August the jet stream takes on a configuration which allows warm and humid air to ride north across the eastern […]

    Showers Most Numerous Late Today

    During the night a southwest flow of humid air changed the amount of moisture present and now it feels like mid-summer again. These humid conditions will be with us into the middle of the workweek. As of 10AM, dew points had risen into the 60s and it was already in the lower 70s in several spots. The sun is not reaching as high in the sky anymore so although it’s […]

    August Ending On A Warm Note

    A cool comfortable morning means it was another fantastic night of sleeping weather. This is the last of these types of starts to the day for a while. Starting later tonight, the humidity comes back and it’s going to hang around for a while. Interestingly, Martha’s Vineyard’s morning low fell to a chilly 39F under clear skies. This type of radiational cooling is typical for that location under the right […]

    Today May Be Warmest Day Of August 2014, But Not Nearly A Record

    While the weather is different every day, sometimes it’s easier than others to blog. I usually try to think about what you are talking about with friends or coworkers and write about that or if the weather is dramatic, that ends up stealing my headline. Today there are a few things I hope you will find as interesting as I do. Some of this anecdotal because honestly I don’t have […]
