    How Fear Can Cloud The Way We Think About Climate Change, Ebola, & Other Issues

    Do you think there is more or less fear in your life than there has been in previous years? I ask the question because it feels to me (not scientific of course) there is more fear in people’s lives than there has been in the past. If you manage money or work in a field having anything to do with Wall Street, then you likely have heard of the fear […]

    Heavy Rain & Wind Continue Into The Afternoon

    While it was certainly windy throughout southern Maine overnight, it was a bigger deal to our south. Over southern New England the nor’easter raged overnight with heavy rain, wind, thunder and lightning. The power went out in multiple communities and is still out for hundreds of people, mostly around Boston. Flooding has been an issue on many roads. The major band of rain continues to shift further north and west […]

    Flood Watch Posted As Heavy Rain Moves Into Region

    While we have seen some significant rain the past 24 hours, more is still on the way. Elements of rain continue to push inland from the ocean this evening and will only become more widespread during the next few hours. The map below shows how much rain has fallen in the past 24 hours. Notice extreme southern Maine has not had much at all. If this was a winter nor’easter […]

    Long Duration Coastal Storm Brings Several Days Of Rain

    Someone tweeted me a question yesterday asking if the media was hyping the storm or we really were getting a nor’easter. The answer to the first part of the question is probably, (depending the media source) on yes to the second part. A nor’easter is simply a low pressure area that moves up along the eastern seaboard bringing with it northeasterly winds. You could also say winds come from the […]

    Freezing Conditions Tonight, With Rain & Wind Later This Week

    The party is over as they say. Our stretch of mild and sunny weather is coming to a screeching halt and after the chill sets in, clouds and rain will follow. Temperatures have been falling all night and are now (8AM) at their chilliest readings of the day. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but even with the rain of a few days ago, parts of the areas […]

    Tropical Downpours Followed By Friday Sunshine, But A Late Weekend Chill

    A strong southerly flow of pure tropical air will bring showers to Maine today and some of them could contain some pretty heavy rain. There’s a lot of transition about to take place in the atmosphere and as I look into next week I see another chance of a cold rain, perhaps even the first flakes of snow in the higher elevations of the mountains. This will be followed by […]

    Mild Air Brings Back That Summer Feeling

    Let’s start this morning’s blog with a hurricane. While Gonzalo isn’t going to impact the area, it’s likely going to end up being the strongest Atlantic hurricane of the season and could impact Bermuda late this week or during the weekend. Hurricane models have this storm reaching category four strength before weakening in the central Atlantic. I finally put the heat on yesterday. The temperature inside the house got to […]

    Clearing Late Today Will Bring Nice Sunday Followed By Warmer Air Next Week

    I’ve been watching the radar all morning and it appears the rain has made it about as far north as it’s going to today. York County got wet, but much of the rest of southern Maine stayed dry, but certainly not warm. It’s not quite as cold as Thanksgiving, but with the highs only in the lower to middle 50s today, it feel more like a day in November than […]

    Columbus Day Weekend Looking Typical For Mid-October

    If you go to the Maine Turnpike’s website you can read about the expected 243,737 to head into the state beginning Friday and continuing Saturday. Columbus Day weekend is the fastest growing holiday here in Maine with July 4th and Labor Day more popular. This evening we find ourselves poised to enjoy another great day of October weather. The good news is the weekend weather will also cooperate, but it’s […]
