    Snow and rain for your Friday

    A significant spring storm will impact the area through the day and into the overnight. The reason the storm is noteworthy will be due to the cold and wet weather it will bring to the area. Colder air continues to drain south this morning.  I am not expecting much, if any, frozen precipitation along the coast, but inland and to the north are a different story. This isn’t going to […]

    Sunshine for southern Maine and sunshine for opening day

    Last week I wrote about the battle between the chilly and mild spring air that would take place this week.  The question then was how far north would the warm air go and how long would it last? Today will be the nicest day of the next  week and I suggest trying to get outside and enjoy some of it.   Damp and chilly air will become firmly entrenched across […]

    Cold air leaving this weekend

    A chilly Saturday afternoon continues with a gusty breeze and temperatures struggling to make it to the 40s. It’s early April in Maine and temperature wise almost anything is possible. Our winds will turn to a warmer direction for Sunday and this means a much milder day. The problem will be that winds will still be brisk so although we will reach the 50s, it will feel cooler. Additionally, clouds […]

    Cold and blustery, but milder air on the way

    Another blustery and cold day is on tap, but it won’t be quite as wintry as yesterday. I could hear the wind still blowing the bird feeders around this morning and the thermometer by my bedside read an even 30F. The winds actually have helped to keep temperatures from getting even colder which is a good thing. Wind tends to mix up the air and not let the cold air […]

    Mild Monday with scattered PM showers

    Last evening spring peepers where reported being heard in parts of Maine for the first time this season.  Peepers are small frogs that will mate in the next few weeks. The chorus of peeping is a sure sign of spring and only lasts a short time.  Peepers start when overnight temperatures in late March and early April remain above 40F. After a mild night last evening that brought a scattering of […]

    A nice Easter weekend

    As we close out the month of March this weekend it will go down in the record books as a cold and snowy one.  On Sunday, it will be the lamb not the lion leading us into April.  You probably noticed a lot of clouds around the area the past couple of days and today will continue that trend.  A weak bit of energy will rotate through the area during […]

    Some snow in the forecast, sorta

    Clouds are on the increase today and the sky will look quite wintry later this afternoon. Yesterday I had a several people ask about the snowstorm for today.  While there is the word "snow" in the forecast, there isn’t a snowstorm on the way.   One of the problems with the internet, and there are many, is that forecasts get boiled down to images.  When you look at the forecast via […]

    Quiet week of March weather

    I hope you enjoyed the wonderful March weather this weekend. You might have noticed your car was quite warm inside if you parked in the sun this weekend.  The sun drives the weather and the sun is getting stronger this time of the year, really fast.  Since the beginning of the month, the sun has risen about 10 degrees higher at noon.  To put that in context, the sun is […]

    Spring is here – is all this cold and snow normal?

    This morning we are waking up to 6 to 14 inches of fresh snow on the ground. I know the world looks like the middle of January for many of us, but just after 7 a.m. this morning astronomical spring arrived. A question I got quite a bit yesterday was “are we done with winter?”  Other folks asked me why this winter has been so different from last year’s.  I […]
