    Heavy morning rain, more PM showers.

    Very heavy rain is moving through southern Maine this morning.  The heaviest rain is falling across the foothills and the lakes region.   Some of these areas could see 1 to 2 inches of rain this morning as torrential downpours move through. There is a flood watch in effect because of the possibility of flash flooding.  Any flooding that occurs would be of the street or small stream variety. The rain […]

    A bit more humidity on the way

    If you asked someone about the weather so far this summer, they might tell you about the humidity.   While records for the amount of humidity in the air are not easily obtained, anecdotally, it seems like it’s been much more humid for a longer period of time this summer than we are use to. I’ll be updating the details of the weather on Twitter at @growingwisdom Please follow me there. […]

    Saturday’s storms will finally bring relief

    Cold snaps and heat waves have their peaks and today is the peak of this heat wave.  Temperatures this afternoon are going to hit 100F in a few spots and get into the upper 90s in many.  When you combine the heat and the humidity, today will be the most uncomfortable day of the summer.   Although the coast hasn’t had an official heat wave, some inland areas have been […]

    Heat and humidity continue into weekend

    Thunderstorms are crossing into western Maine and could give some areas a quick downpour with some vivid lightning.  The heat wave continued inland today, but coastal areas stayed in the 80s.  Portland only reached the mid-80s with oppressive humidity.  The inland heat has been particularly intense with many areas seeing their 4th day in a row at or over 90F.   I was watering some containers outside earlier and thinking […]

    Beach weather continues into weekend

    Portland and surrounding communities reached and exceeded the 90 degree mark yesterday.  It appears likely many areas will reach the lower 90s again today, especially just a few miles inland.   This morning you should notice slightly drier air across the region.  It’s not that there isn’t humidity, it’s just that the level is less than yesterday at this time.  During the afternoon it’s going to feel hot again and […]

    Short break from the humidity

    A cool northeast wind greeted Mainers this morning, a welcome change from the fog and high moisture of Thursday.  The breeze will continue much of the morning with temperatures struggling to reach the 70s along the coast.  There will be some periods of sunshine, but a lot of clouds as well.   While this won’t be a great beach day, it will still be a good afternoon to get outside […]

    Cloudy and cool

     A cool cloudy day is in store for Mainers as the heat of the weekend is now well in the past.  Ocean air is firmly entrenched and this means that temperatures will stay in the lower and middle 70s all day. There won’t be much in the way of sunshine as clouds rule the skies.  Showers will be infrequent and while this isn’t a great beach day, it will be […]

    Nice Sunday, showers back this week

Feel free to comment or ask questions too.  Temperatures fell into the 60s across most of the area and it has been a nice morning.  Inland areas will approach 90F once again, but […]

    Another very warm July day

    Temperatures all across Maine remained in the 70s most of the night.  Overnight lows this high are not typical for Maine and make for uncomfortable sleeping.  We will have these types of warm nights through the weekend.  The exception to this will be shoreline communities where temperatures can fall to the upper 60s by morning. Depending on where you are today through the weekend will make a big difference on […]
