    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 […]

    Winter storm continues for the afternoon

    Snow is falling across much of southern Maine this afternoon. Already up to 8 inches have accumulated, especially west of the Maine Turnpike where speed limits have been lowered.  Snow will continue up to and just beyond sunset.  The heaviest of the snow will tend to wind down after 4 PM.  There have been some areas that got over 2 inches of snow in an hour.  There can be a […]

    Steady snow for much of today

    Forecasters are certainly going to be earning their money this month.  Here we go again with another very complicated situation unfolding for southern Maine and the seacoast area of New Hampshire.  As you are no doubt aware there is some snow in the forecast for late tonight and Sunday.  The atmosphere is a funny thing, we can try like mad (and it can be maddening) to predict it, but sometimes […]

    Light to moderate snowstorm this weekend

    We have a split weekend weather wise on the way. After a bright, sunny, and comfortable day today tomorrow will see clouds thicken, but remaining dry for the daylight hours. Both today and tomorrow will be great ski days, but tomorrow you will need a good pair of goggles as there will be lots of that flat light under foot. A storm is going to form along the coast to […]

    Still many unanswered questions on the weekend storm

    As I review latest  suite of data the trend is for a slightly colder and weaker system for Saturday night and Sunday, in other words, no massive storm.  We will certainly still have a storm to watch and there will be some wind and accumulating snow, but we are not looking at a blockbuster system.   Tonight will be clear and cold with diminishing winds and temperatures falling back to […]
