    Nice weather for weekend football and foliage

    Foliage is beginning to come on strong over far northwestern sections of Maine and will only increase in intensity during the upcoming weeks.   Maine is such a large state, if you wanted to view peak foliage you could drive around and do so for almost an entire month!   While peak foliage season won’t arrive at the coast for 2 to 3 more weeks, it’s already happening across the […]

    How long can this weather last?

    When winter does set in, and it will, we will need to remember September when the weather was nothing short of perfection.   Stellar, excellent, wonderful, perfect, ideal, amazing, super, delightful or marvelous.  No matter what superlative I use, you get the idea.  It’s not easy to blog about the weather when there isn’t much more to say.  Day after day of sunshine is kind of boring from a meteorologists […]

    50/50 split to the weekend forecast

    We haven’t had rain all week and the fine weather is going to continue into the weekend.  Although the moon is now just past full, it will still lighten up the country side under mainly clear skies overnight.  Temperatures will be comfortably cool falling into the 40s and 50s.  The coolest spots will be in the valleys where the cool air is allowed to settle. Saturday, we will watch a […]

    Stellar weather into the weekend a stark contrast to 1938 Hurricane 75 years ago

    It’s hard to imagine a hurricane hitting southern Maine in the face of such perfect weather this week.  September is one of the months many consider the best of the year.  Our warm days with crystal clear skies are going to continue into the weekend before clouds and showers take hold later Sunday. I’ll be updating the details of the forecast on Twitter at @growingwisdom Please follow me there. Feel […]

    Storms continue into the overnight

    It’s already been an active day across much of Maine with several rounds of showers and thunderstorms.  Some of the storms have reached severe levels and lightning has been frequent as well.  Power outages were a problem overnight and again this evening we could see more. Basically, a front is stuck to our west and tropical unstable air is streaming northward on the eastern side of this boundary.  Big thunderstorms […]

    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 […]
