    A taste of summer to start the work week.

    The birds are really loud at 5AM this time of year and getting up early isn’t a problem. I find myself going to sleep before 9PM so I can enjoy all the hours of daylight. We have a warmer day for everyone today, especially those of you who live along the coast. Portland barely reached the low 50s for a short time on Saturday, which was much less than the […]

    A cool end the work week, but warmer this weekend.

    May has arrived. I imagine if you had a lot of damage during the winter to your house then the effects of the season are still lingering. However, with the leaves starting to take over and temperatures warming, the snow and cold of January, February and March are now fading into our collective memories. April is a transitional month. We really got by unscathed in terms of cold and snow. […]

    There is an end to the cool and damp pattern and it starts this weekend

    The showers of earlier this morning have not pushed off the coast. While there could be a sprinkle or light shower the rest of the day, we are basically looking at a cool, cloudy day with a persistent northeasterly flow off the water. This pattern will continue through Friday, but then a change in the upper level winds will begin to bring warmer air into southern and central Maine and […]

    Some showers today, better second half of the week.

    The final week of April will be a typical one. You’ll notice temperatures on the cooler side of average, but not by much, along with a few showers. This morning I want to start the blog by showing you a satellite loop. I always tell students to loop the weather when you can because it gives such a great idea of what’s happening. On this loop you can see the […]

    Cool and sometimes unsettled weather closes out April

    There are numerous showers with some embedded downpours this morning over central Maine as a storm system over southern Canada moves slowly north. To the south, clearing skies are ushered in behind this same system as the showers ended in the pre-dawn hours. In the mountains there was some snow overnight. Our weather pattern has changed and what’s old is new again. We are in many ways back to the […]

    Heaviest rain has ended, but showers linger

    Heavy rain has now lifted north of Greater Portland with lingering showers still possible this morning over southern sections and much of the day east of Rockland. A frontal system that divides the cool marine air from milder air continue to push north. The overall weather system has brought a lot of rain to the region over the past 24 hours with a record 2.20 inches of rainfall yesterday and […]

    Some sun and some rain this weekend, more significant rain next week.

    I’ll get to the weather in a minute, but first, did you see the new Star Wars trailer yet? I remember the summer of 1977 when my parents took me to the new film. That initial scene when the words scrolled across the screen horizontally in a way I had never seen before was pretty awesome. Little did I know, the next two hours would be a thrill ride unlike […]

    Picture perfect weather continues today.

    Already 60F before noon, it’s going to be another great day here in southern Maine. There are several aspects of the weather of interest on this mid-April morning not least of which is the stunning day we are enjoying. April can be such a miserable month. There are years where it rains for days on end or it’s cold or we don’t see much sunshine. While the beginning of the […]

    One more warm day then those April showers arrive.

    Did you enjoy the weather yesterday? If you didn’t think yesterday was a flawless April day, I’m not sure how much better it could have been this time of the year. Porltand reached a high of 68F for one of the warmest days since last fall. It was even more impressive when you think about the fact it was 29F to start the day! The snow is mostly gone, although […]
