    Storms possible later this evening

    Very warm and humid air has primed the atmosphere over western New England for thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. There is a severe thunderstorm watch posted for the areas in pink on the image below. The best chance of storms will be between 4pm and 10pm in the western half of the region. Some of these storms could hold together to bring a brief shower or weakened storm near the […]

    A few showers this week, but very warm

    When you consider all the rain in Texas and Oklahoma this spring, our drought doesn’t seem so bad. If we had recorded a spring with the same percentage of above normal rainfall as we are currently below, there would have been a lot of flooding here in New England. Additionally gardens would be water logged and I’d be writing about fungus and rotting seeds in the ground. The pattern out […]

    Fine Memorial Day weekend in the forecast

    The sun has been up for hours as I start the Friday morning blog of Memorial Day weekend. These weekends are notorious for not being perfect. Late May is typically not a completely warm or dry time of year. The fact the weekend is coming somewhat early makes lowers the likelihood of an entirely warm weekend further. However, odds are not perfect and the upcoming holiday weekend will be better […]

    Dry weather continues through Memorial Day

    Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start to summer and this upcoming weekend the weather will cooperate. Since I know most of you want sunshine and pleasant conditions, I’ll use terms like great weekend, perfect for outdoor activities, nice start to summer etc. to describe the upcoming forecast. Cloudy Friday Tomorrow won’t be even close to a washout, but there is the risk of showers and even a thunderstorm. A […]

    Dry weather continues, so does winter moth damage in some areas

    The weather the rest of the week and into the weekend looks dry and mostly sunny. Except for some chilly mornings, with some frost possible away from the coast, it’s nearly a perfect pattern for outdoor activities. The landscape continues to look more and more like summer and many of the trees have their leaves close to full size. Chomping green worms If you live along the coast of from […]

    The dry sunny weather ahead is good depending on your perspective

    In the news world, expect for commentators, anchors are supposed to just report the facts and not add their own personal adjectives about the news. In the weather world, we do both. Words like great days, wonderful weather; lousy, hot, cool, cold, miserable, and fantastic, routinely enter into the lexicon of anyone reporting the weather. I’m not so sure this is avoidable; we are human with our own sense of […]

    All of Maine is now in abnormally dry status.

    This time of year, at times, it actually can take me a bit longer to think about what to write in the blog. I mean, in winter it becomes obvious because so many of you are interested in the cold and snow. Most of the spring, summer or fall, we don’t tend to have big storms, except of course the occasional bought of severe weather or even less common a […]

    Quick changes in the weather over the next day

    Cool marine air greeted us this morning with temperatures in the 40s to lower 50s and a touch of drizzle. We are going to see some rapid changes over the next 12 hours with a burst of warm air followed by cooler Canadian air for the weekend. This morning a warm front is moving northward at the same time the remnants of Ana pass out to see south of Nantucket. […]

    Stellar begining of May roles on into the weekend

    What a May so far. I know we are only on our 6th day of the month, but the past few days have been so wonderful, it certainly helps remind everyone why Maine is such a great place when the weather is warm. Of course, ice fishing, skiing and snowmobiling are wonderful as well. There are a couple of downsides to all the nice weather. The fire danger and pollen […]
