    Another coastal storm for next week

    The march to warm spring weather can often be frustrating and this year is going to bare out that fact. As I review the charts today, one aspect that screams out to me is the lack of any sign of truly mild air for the rest of March. You might ask how I can possibly predict the next two weeks, when we are still unsure of the details for Tuesday’s […]

    Colder times ahead, spring fever cured for now

    Yesterday was one of those mid-March days when you realize that we are closer to spring than the heart of winter.  Temperatures reached the 40s to near 50F and with the abundant sunshine it really was one of the nicer afternoons so far this year.   Occasionally, my work life allows me to take a break during the day.  I was able to prune some roses, put down some organic […]

    Rain on the way, very different than 20 years ago this week

    A flood watch is up for areas around Rumford and Norway as some rain moves through the area later today and overnight.  Mild air will combine with the rani to create enough snow melt for some smaller rivers and streams to reach flood stage.  I am not expecting any significant flooding from this event.  Drier and colder weather returns for the end of the week after a nice day tomorrow. […]

    Comet Pan-STARRS streaks across the sky this evening

    What a great winter day here in Maine. Abundant sunshine, mild temperatures and generally light winds.  You couldn’t have asked for a nicer March day and I hope you got a chance to enjoy it. Tonight as the sun sets we may get a chance to see a celestial treat.  Comet Pan-STARRS is going to be visible in the southwestern sky just after sunset. The comet Pan-STARRS is going to be […]

    Coastal flooding a concern for Friday morning

    The news has been filled with stories of the big coastal storm that has caused weather problems from the Midwest to southern New England.  As this storm continues to move out to sea it will just graze southern Maine. There is winter weather advisory in effect for York County, and there can be several inches of snow in that area overnight. Tonight the snow will spread north and should reach […]

    Large ocean storm to cause problems for New England

    Late last month I wrote about how the first part of March would end up being chilly and somewhat stormy. Now, five days into the month, this is proving true for much of the country. Thus far, we have not had any major snow here in Maine. Today we are watching an area of low pressure move out of the Ohio Valley and head for the mid-Atlantic coast. As this […]

    Quiet weekend weather wise, but some changes next week

    This morning our weather continues to be controlled by a stuck storm to the north.   As this storm sits and spins, pieces of energy in the form of clouds, flurries and rain showers continue to rotate through the area.  At times, it becomes cloudy with a quick round of precipitation followed by some breaks of sunshine and a dry period.  This pattern is going to continue for the next […]

    March begins rather tranquil

    For the first time in many days there are not winter weather warnings in New England.  Even though we will have a lot of clouds today, you can still see some breaks of sun.  There is the risk of a snow or rain shower from time to time.   Temperatures will be in the upper 30s today with a bit more melting of the deep snowpack.  All told, I would say March […]

    Snow inland, rain changing back to snow at coast

    As of late afternoon, much of the area that was seeing rain earlier today is now getting snow. For instance, in Portland, after several hours of rain, it is now snowing again.  The snow is having a hard time accumulating as temperatures are still above freezing.  As the night progresses the snow will accumulate several inches even along the coast.  I’ll be updating the forecast throughout the storm on Twitter […]
