    Cold for everyone with a wide range of snow amounts

     The upcoming snowstorm is going to bring snow, wind, possible coastal flooding and very cold temperatures.  Of all of these variables for me, the cold and wind will be the most notable. Maine folks are hardy souls and it takes more than a moderate storm to slow us down.  However, we have just had two back to back months of very cold weather and the upcoming storm will occur with […]

    Cold with snow on the way, mostly over southern Maine

    A cold day continues with a brisk breeze and a blend of clouds and sunshine.  There’s a winter storm watch posted for Cumberland and York Counties for tonight and Friday. The fact this is posted for only Maine’s southern two counties is an indication we are on the northern fringe of a storm passing south of Maine.  The watch was issued because these areas have the greatest chance of seeing […]

    Some snow likely later Thursday, cold rules the entire week

    Another cold night and some more snow on the way. This winter isn’t even a third over and some of you have already had enough. If you are not aware, there is the potential for a snowstorm Thursday night and Friday. This storm could end up being a southern Maine or southern New England event, but it does have some potential. I will be updating the forecast throughout the next […]

    Heavy snow ending inland overnight, little accumulation around greater Portland

    Mild air continues to hold in place from York County northward along much of the coastline and even several miles inland along parts of the coast.  The storm is moving very rapidly and the majority of the precipitation will fall as rain, not snow in coastal areas. Storm warnings have been dropped from about Bath southward along the coast.  There are no warnings or advisories for this storm in greater […]

    Winter storm warning for interior areas of Maine

     It’s been a snowy December and it’s about to get a even snowier tomorrow night. The watch for heavy snow from earlier today has now been upgraded to a warning.  In addition to this, there are winter weather advisories for snow, just less of it, south and east of the warning area.   As warmer air flows along the coast into the weather system, snow will quickly change to rain […]

    Snowy Thursday for returning gifts and back to work

    I hope you had a nice Christmas and got a chance to relax, spend time with family or whatever makes the day off special. Let me start the forecast by talking about the weekend.  Temperatures Saturday and Sunday are going to break the freezing mark and with clouds and sunshine, this is going to be a nice weekend to be outside.    Across ski country, there is plenty of snow […]

    Dry and cold for Christmas Eve and Christmas

    The good news is the freezing rain is finally over.  The two to three day event brought down power lines and trees, mostly centered on a line from Lewiston to the coast.  The report below shows how much ice built up on various surfaces around the area with the heaviest close to an inch. This wasn’t 1998 all over again, but some areas did see ice accretion almost to those […]

    Periodic icing continues today

     I know schools are off today so traffic won’t be as bad today as a typical Monday.  However, there’s still a freezing rain advisory  for Portland and an ice storm warning over the capitol district.     In addition to the freezing rain, there is a lot of fog out there as well and this can hamper travel further. When we experience freezing rain, it’s because the air above the ground […]

    Another round of freezing rain for some Monday

    Another round of precipitation is going to move through late tonight and the first part of Monday.  Unlike Sunday, when it was marginally cold for freezing rain, temperatures have now fallen well below 32F across statewide, so there will be more in the way of  freezing rain early Monday closer to the coastline. If you have a report on how much ice you have received, please tweet me @growingwisdom on […]
