    Showers will move in and out today followed by big heat Wednesday

    Big changes in the temperature will occur the rest of the week as our fall-like air is replaced by the feeling of mid-summer before returning back to fall-like conditions for the weekend. Along the way there will be a period of showers and thunderstorms.  Right now an area of storms and showers is pushing into southern Maine.  This first batch of rain is moving rapidly east and will be offshore […]

    Clearing skies and cooler weather starts the week

    Fall weather  doesn’t arrive all at once, it comes in small doses with breaks of warmer weather in the middle.  Eventually, the breaks of warmer weather become less frequent, the warmth is not so warm, until finally it just seems like there is a chill in the air most of the time.  This week will experience a brief shot of chilly autumn air, a couple of days with mid-summer like […]

    Back to school weather is perfect for learning at any age

    Very often the first week of September the weather changes so rapidly it’s as if someone flipped a switch from summer to fall.  As students flood into classrooms this morning, temperatures inside the building will still be warm and perhaps it will feel somewhat muggy in the hallways until the cooler air filters through the buildings. Somewhere in a box of papers I have a piece of work I did […]

    Wet Labor Day leading to a cooler mid-week

    Let me start this afternoon’s blog by stating how fortunate many of us were in southern Maine this weekend to not be hounded by torrential rain and thunder. You might not be aware that parts of southern New England had close to 6 inches of rain yesterday and there was quite a bit of flooding on the roadways down there. I’ll be updating the details of the weather on Twitter […]

    Labor Day weekend forecast is mostly dry

     A bit of everything is in store this weekend, but the theme is most of the weekend will be dry.   As evening falls upon southern Maine a southerly breeze is keeping the coast cooler than inland areas with moderate levels of humidity for all of us. Since the air is originating over southern climes, our nighttime temperatures are going to be quite mild this final weekend of August.   I don’t […]

    A few showers before the weekend, then sunshine and drier

    A warm and sunny morning greeted us this morning. As I was walking the dogs around sunrise I thought how the air still has that warm weather scent to it. I know over the next few weeks this will change and be replaced by a cool crispness. Disturbances will continue to move though the wind flow above us through Thursday. These areas will bring the risk of showers. Last night […]

    Super Sunday of weather, changes Monday

    Vacationland is living up to its name this week with thousands of people visiting our great state of Maine.  The weather has been cooperating and on balance will be quite nice through Labor Day.  We do have some changes this week with a couple of shots of rain, but not enough to alleviate our short-term dry spell. Changes will take the form of clouds, some showers and an increase in […]

    Last week of August to close mostly on a sunny and dry note

    At the end of July I wrote about a big change in the pattern that would bring cooler and mostly drier air to southern Maine as we headed in August.  As we head into the last week of the month, it appears this will end up being one of the nicest Augusts in a several years.   Temperatures yesterday closed in on 90F, with Portland hitting 89F, one of the […]

    How will all this great weather affect the fall foliage season?

    It wasn’t a beach day across southern Maine yesterday as a frontal system just offshore allowed clouds to hold tough for much of the afternoon.  I kind of like days like that as they tend to slow me down and also allow me to work outside without the heat we can experience in mid-August. I’ll be updating the details of the weather and the best places for leaf peeping on […]
