    Mid-summer pattern will close out August as Tropical Storm Erika moves towards the west

    Tropical storm Erika is continuing to churn her way westward in the Atlantic Wednesday and is poised to perhaps make landfall on the east coast of the Florida peninsula early next week. If the forecasted strengthening does occur, Erika may make landfall as a category 1 storm on Monday or it could ride north along the coastline and not hit the mainland. Tracks can dramatically change in a very short […]

    Humidity continues for a couple of more days

    Another foggy, misty, muggy morning greets Mainers, as the pattern of humidity continues. The good news, the drop in humidity will be slowly arriving during Wednesday. This morning there are some showers and storms in the western part of New England, but the movement of these showers is predominately to the north. The reason for this, the frontal system bringing the showers is also moving at slow pace eastward. Notice […]

    Still humid for Monday, but there is drier weather coming

    I’ve had enough of the high levels of moisture in the air for the past week or more. I know it’s summer and I know this is how it feels in summer, but I’ve never like the high humidity and I am ready for a break. The upcoming work week looks overall pretty good in the weather department, but there are some issues. I know many of you go back […]

    Tropical air mass continues throughout the weekend, but it’s not a washout

    Showers and even some embedded heavy downpours will continue to move south to north this evening. There will be breaks of sunshine in places and also some periods of dry weather. What about the weekend? That’s the big question I am getting over the past few days. The reality is the second to last weekend in August isn’t going to provide us with a bright blue sky and seasonably warm […]

    First hurricane of season forms in Atlantic, while humidity continues high in Maine

    A southeast wind kept coastal locations from reaching the 80s today, but the humidity remained high and it felt somewhat uncomfortable. This pattern of humidity is likely going to remain in place until next week when a stronger push of dry air from Canada makes its way to the coastline. The map below shows dew points next Monday. Where you see warmer colors, it’s still going to fell sticky. The […]

    Warm and humid, but still no heat waves for much of coastal Maine

    It’s been “hot and humid” the past few days, but other than one day back in May (still spring), Portland has yet to reach the 90 degree mark this summer. Inland areas like Sanford, Fryeburg and Bridgton have all been much warmer than the coast and this trend will continue much of this week. Heat and Humidity In this part of the country, 90 degree weather conjures up thoughts of […]

    Data from August 4th hail storm shows off new weather technology

    10 days ago several severe thunderstorms moved through southern Maine and brought some very large hail to York and parts of Cumberland Counties. There was significant damage to some businesses including many new cars which were dented by the large hail. While we didn’t officially break any hail records, the storm was one of the larger outbreaks of hail in recent memory. Although many types of weather observation have been […]

    El Nino continues to grow, but impact on Maine’s winter still unsure

    What an amazing day of weather. I spent the afternoon showing friends around Portland and with weather like this, I needed to remind them it’s not always this nice, we do have winter as well. Speaking of winter, there’s a lot of talk about this year’s El Nino event which is getting stronger. While El Nino will certainly be a major player in the global weather this winter, here in […]

    Perseid meteor shower viewing should be good Wednesday and Thursday nights in much of Maine

    Here in Maine we are fortunate to have many spots where you can quickly get away from light pollution. Even if you live in Portland, a 15 minute ride gets you to fairly dark skies to see some great celestial phenomena. Every August brings about the Perseid Meteor shower. This annual event is anticipated by many folks because of the reliability of the meteors and the fact they occur when […]
