    Dry weather continues through Memorial Day

    Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start to summer and this upcoming weekend the weather will cooperate. Since I know most of you want sunshine and pleasant conditions, I’ll use terms like great weekend, perfect for outdoor activities, nice start to summer etc. to describe the upcoming forecast. Cloudy Friday Tomorrow won’t be even close to a washout, but there is the risk of showers and even a thunderstorm. A […]

    Dry weather continues, so does winter moth damage in some areas

    The weather the rest of the week and into the weekend looks dry and mostly sunny. Except for some chilly mornings, with some frost possible away from the coast, it’s nearly a perfect pattern for outdoor activities. The landscape continues to look more and more like summer and many of the trees have their leaves close to full size. Chomping green worms If you live along the coast of from […]

    The dry sunny weather ahead is good depending on your perspective

    In the news world, expect for commentators, anchors are supposed to just report the facts and not add their own personal adjectives about the news. In the weather world, we do both. Words like great days, wonderful weather; lousy, hot, cool, cold, miserable, and fantastic, routinely enter into the lexicon of anyone reporting the weather. I’m not so sure this is avoidable; we are human with our own sense of […]

    All of Maine is now in abnormally dry status.

    This time of year, at times, it actually can take me a bit longer to think about what to write in the blog. I mean, in winter it becomes obvious because so many of you are interested in the cold and snow. Most of the spring, summer or fall, we don’t tend to have big storms, except of course the occasional bought of severe weather or even less common a […]

    Quick changes in the weather over the next day

    Cool marine air greeted us this morning with temperatures in the 40s to lower 50s and a touch of drizzle. We are going to see some rapid changes over the next 12 hours with a burst of warm air followed by cooler Canadian air for the weekend. This morning a warm front is moving northward at the same time the remnants of Ana pass out to see south of Nantucket. […]

    Stellar begining of May roles on into the weekend

    What a May so far. I know we are only on our 6th day of the month, but the past few days have been so wonderful, it certainly helps remind everyone why Maine is such a great place when the weather is warm. Of course, ice fishing, skiing and snowmobiling are wonderful as well. There are a couple of downsides to all the nice weather. The fire danger and pollen […]

    A taste of summer to start the work week.

    The birds are really loud at 5AM this time of year and getting up early isn’t a problem. I find myself going to sleep before 9PM so I can enjoy all the hours of daylight. We have a warmer day for everyone today, especially those of you who live along the coast. Portland barely reached the low 50s for a short time on Saturday, which was much less than the […]

    A cool end the work week, but warmer this weekend.

    May has arrived. I imagine if you had a lot of damage during the winter to your house then the effects of the season are still lingering. However, with the leaves starting to take over and temperatures warming, the snow and cold of January, February and March are now fading into our collective memories. April is a transitional month. We really got by unscathed in terms of cold and snow. […]

    There is an end to the cool and damp pattern and it starts this weekend

    The showers of earlier this morning have not pushed off the coast. While there could be a sprinkle or light shower the rest of the day, we are basically looking at a cool, cloudy day with a persistent northeasterly flow off the water. This pattern will continue through Friday, but then a change in the upper level winds will begin to bring warmer air into southern and central Maine and […]
