    A cold morning, but sunshine abounds this afternoon

    A  cold morning to say the least is underway.  Fryeburg as I write this is down in the upper teens for a solid freeze and a hard ground.  In spite of nearly 100% sunshine, it will take many hours for temperatures to get into the 40’s today.     From about 11 AM to 4PM will be anywhere from 38-44F.   Once the sun goes down well before 5PM, temperatures […]

    Halloween showers, strong Friday winds and a Sunday sunrise eclipse

    Here comes the wind.  We haven’t had a real weather event around here in months.   Perhaps some big thunderstorms over the summer or some heavy rain in late August, but in general it has been smooth sailing for a while.  Tomorrow is going to be a wild and windy day, but before we get there, let’s get the kids out and back safe and dry this evening. A flow of […]

    Various weather changes for Game 6, Halloween and the start of November

    Clouds greet Mainers this morning as a weak disturbance moves through the area.    When meteorologists use the word disturbance, not storm, it’s usually a change in wind direction and speed some level above 10,000 feet causing the issue.  Today’s "disturbance" is moving by at around 18,000 feet.   If you want to discuss weather, climate or gardening or even education please find me on Twitter at @growingwisdom Please follow […]

    Sunny Sunday and warming up later this week

    After some light rain last night our Sunday is turning out to be a wonderful late October day.  This is of course the last Sunday in October and as such, the last Sunday of daylight saving time 2013.  Next Sunday, it will be dark by 5PM, a sign that winter is closing in rapidly. Although the light will be shrinking further this week, temperatures will actually be rising.  I am […]

    Last weekend of daylight saving time brings sunshine

     This is the last full weekend of daylight saving time and it appears that will see a lot of sunshine, but not without some clouds and a slim chance of showers.  We set the clock back next Sunday morning for that wonderful night when we get an extra hour of sleep. This area of mainly clear skies extends back the Midwest and means sunshine and clear skies will also be […]

    Chilly afternoon here, cool night for the World Series

    It’s a chilly afternoon across southern Maine and the feel of late fall is certainly evident.  This time of year we can flip from mild to cold in a matter of hours. Game 1 of the World Series starts tonight and even if you’re not a fan of baseball, you can’t help but know this is a big deal for Boston and all of Red Sox Nation.  This is the […]

    Mild this afternoon, but the colder air coming

     This has been quite an October for warmth.  So far in Portland just a few days have been in the 50s and 15 day have reached or exceeded 60F.  We even had one 80 degree day this month.  Temperatures are running shy of 5 degrees above what you would expect and there has yet to be a frost along the coast. I’d love to hear your thoughts on weather, climate […]

    Fading sunshine today, increasing sunshine Sunday

     A nice morning across the state yields a mild afternoon with temperatures back into the 60s.  If you look at the sky this morning, there are some high cirrus clouds acting as a filter of the sun.  These clouds will tend to increase throughout the day so by the end of the afternoon, the blue will be more grey.   I don’t expect any rain today, but there is chance […]

    Mild weekend, colder air on the horizon

    Our great stretch of weather continues with the mild air in place for about another week.  Normally this time of year my tomatoes would be done and a frost would have taken many of the late growing flowers.  This year our October temperatures are averaging just over 4 degrees above normal.   Some sunshine should break through the clouds Thursday and if we get enough afternoon sunshine some areas will […]
