    An entire season of snow – and then some – for Washington, D.C., but none for Maine

    The bottom line with the upcoming storm is it is going to impact the mid-Atlantic region in perhaps an historical way, while here Maine we will see nothing more than some clouds. It’s amazing how big this storm is forecast to be in the Washington, D.C., area and even close to New York City, but the trend over the past day has been to keep this storm far to the […]

    Cold continues into the weekend, but storm still questionable

    Dry and cold weather continues for the balance of the work week, but there is still a small risk for some snow this weekend along the coast and mainly over southern Maine. Let’s chat about the cold first. Wednesday will certainly feel cold once again. When you combine the wind and the cold, the real feel temperatures will be in the single numbers below zero at times. This cold isn’t […]

    Brace for cold, wind and watch out for possible weekend storm

    Over the weekend I wanted to take a drive to get some lunch. Since it had been snowing, I asked my neighbor how the roads were. She said if you are true Mainer, they are fine. While I don’t like to take risks driving if I don’t need to, her point about living in Maine was made – snow and cold are part of winter. This week, cold and wind are the […]

    Complex winter storm will bring mixed bag of weather to Maine Saturday

    In the summer there’s always a week of very hot weather, usually in July, but sometimes in August. In a typical winter there’s always a week or two of cold. It often comes in January, but sometimes waits till February. Next week, I see the coldest air of the season so far coming to Maine. Before it gets here we will experience two precipitation events. The first will be a […]

    Thundersnow brings pockets of heavy snow to southern Maine

    A moderate snowstorm blew in an out of southern Maine last evening and by the time it was done several areas had received 5-10 inches of fresh snow. This was more than was expected, especially south of Augusta. These reports will be updated later today. The atmosphere was charged up with a lot of energy last night and this helped produced thundersnow. Thundersnow isn’t unique, but certainly more common in […]

    Light to moderate snowfall across southern and central Maine Tuesday evening

    A more active weather is underway with two chance of snow between Tuesday and Martin Luther King Weekend. There is a storm system moving across the Ohio Valley that will then redevelop as it passes over Maine Tuesday night and into eastern Canada. These situations are very tricky. The speed at which this storm intensifies will ultimately determine where the heaviest snow occurs. If the low pressure area moves faster […]

    Meteorological pattern shift may eventually bring snow to Maine

    Forecasters are going to be busy over the next two to three weeks as an active pattern becomes even more volatile and could eventually mean significant snow to parts of New England. The rain this weekend is the initial play of this stormy pattern, in spite of our being on the warm side of this storm. El Nino is still a dominant force, but two other players on the global […]

    As arctic air departs, a rain – not snow – storm is on the horizon

    After two days of cold, it might seem like a wintrier pattern is on the way, but that isn’t the case. Dry weather continues the next couple of days, but even after the blast of arctic air to start the week, temperatures are going to rise above average to finish it. Looking further ahead, a rain, not snowstorm brings more moisture to New England this weekend. If you are a winter […]
