    Inland heat this week, but remaining comfortably warm along coast

    Having just returned for vacation in Canada where the air was nice and cool, I am not thrilled some heat and humidity is coming this week. Nevertheless, for those for whom the lack of heat this summer has been a disappointment, your turn is coming. Heat and humidity enter New England when high pressure to the south sits in such a position it pumps the hot air and the humid […]

    Quieter and warmer day with cool and dry weather later this week

    Sunshine and warm temperatures will make today an ideal beach day across southern Maine. If you are on vacation this week, it’s going to be a nice one overall. There are some changes ahead as heat and humidity drop, but I don’t expect much if any rainfall. There are still some low clouds along the coast as I write, but these will dissipate during the morning. The image below from […]

    Unsettled Sunday leads to a warmer and drier Monday

    Yesterday was another day in which Portland again averaged well under the 30 year average for its high temperature. The high of only 70 degrees was nine degrees below the more typical reading in the upper 70s to near 80. There is heat across the country, but not excessive amounts of it. The very northern edge of the heat will brush southern Maine today and especially tomorrow, but cooler, drier […]

    Warm and humid weather return this weekend

    The bottom line on the upcoming weekend forecast is most of the time is dry. I know there are showers in the forecast both days, with an emphasis on Saturday morning and late that same day, but the reality is any rainfall that does occur will be light and brief. This isn’t a perfect weekend of weather if you are looking for brilliant sunshine and no clouds. It will however, […]

    Warm and dry through Friday, but some showers start the weekend

    There are so many summer traditions in Maine it’s tough to keep track of all of them. Some of them are things we all can participate in like the Old Port Festival or this weekend’s Yarmouth Clam Festival. Others are more personal, a favorite spot on the Belgrade lakes, a hike up Pleasant Mountain or a cup (or bucket) of Pier Fries at Old Orchard Beach. Whatever your pleasure, the […]

    Could El Nino help spare Maine another unusually cold winter?

    I filled in on TV Sunday morning doing weather. I really enjoy the opportunity to be back on TV, once in a while. Mostly, I love the educational aspect of being able to use the medium of television to teach and/or tell a story about the weather or gardening. On Sunday I was “98.9%” convinced more places would reach 90 degrees. When official readings failed to reach that mark, I […]

    Another perfect summer day for southern and central Maine

    Yesterday both Portland and Concord reached 87 degrees, but most of the coastline hasn’t seen a 90 degree yet this season. In certain summers, along parts of the Maine coast, it doesn’t hit 90 degrees all summer. Today, most of interior southern Maine will reach the 90 degree mark and with a westerly wind keeping sea breezes at bay, even Portland will get very close to 90 degrees. Last summer […]

    Southern Maine misses overnight rain, nice weekend ahead

    During the overnight hours a low pressure system passed south of Maine and with it the latest opportunity for some rainfall. Depending on where you live, it’s getting a bit dry, but not excessively so. One part of southern Maine which has seen adequate rainfall is in the western part of Oxford and Cumberland counties. Some parts of Bridgton for example have seen above average rainfall over the past few […]

    A wonderful summer weekend is on the horizon

    I sometimes stop myself from writing too much about my personal life in these blogs because the reality is most of you read them for the forecast or my take on the current state of the atmosphere. But sometimes the things I am doing while I am not blogging, turn in part to a blog and may eventually lead to a forecast or perspective on the weather. So, this morning […]
