    Vacationland weather will be enjoyable this week

    With July 4th on Saturday, this might your summer vacation week.

    Summer nor’easter winds down Sunday afternoon

Sometime in the middle of the night I awoke briefly to the sound of a tree coming down. Over the past several years, between Irene, Sandy and various winter storms, many of the dead or dying elm trees around the property have fallen. Last night’s crash was the result of the […]

    Why you likely didn’t see a tornado, in spite of several tornado watches Tuesday

    Tornado watches and even warnings in parts of New England were issued on Tuesday afternoon, but there weren’t any confirmed tornadoes, so what happened? Although a likely microburst did cause some damage in Freeport, for the most part yesterday’s storms passed with little fanfare. There is a definitely a misunderstanding among many in the public about what severe weather days bring. I heard lots of folks talking yesterday about how […]

    Astronomical summer arrives Sunday

    The summer solstice arrives Sunday afternoon. If you are an astronomer this marks astronomical summer or the time when the sun’s rays are most direct across much of the northern hemisphere. From this point forward, until the winter solstice, the sun’s position in the sky will slowly be progressing further south and lower. Additionally, there will be a loss of net daylight starting Monday. Warmest Yet To Arrive If you […]

    This weekend will feature one very nice day and one unsettled day

    An area of showers this morning will cross the region ahead of a cold front. As this front moves east, it will briefly pull up some humidity from the south, especially along the coast from about Brunswick south. Elsewhere, although there are clouds and some rain, the air won’t have that humid feeling. The radar below from about 6 a.m. shows the showers quickly moving eastward. By the time your […]

This morning, the most interesting weather is across the Gulf of Mexico where tropical storm Bill became the second named storm of the season. This system isn’t large and […]
