    Overall cold, with brief breaks and a bit of snow

    It’s a cold morning across the region with temperatures in the single numbers below zero and a wind chill warning for the mountains.  Along the coast, wind chills will be lowest before 10AM.  You can expect it to feel below zero all day as actual temperatures reach the mid-teens in Portland, but struggle into positive territory on the ski lifts.   The cold continues overnight with similar temperatures as the […]

    A glancing blow from an ocean storm

    The arctic air arrived late yesterday and will remain with us for many days to come.  The boundary between the arctic air and the relatively mild air is spawning a coastal storm tonight affecting much of the area from Washington, DC to Boston.  Southern Maine will be on the northern fringe of this system with a few inches of snow along the coast and some lighter snow inland.  Unfortunately, the […]

    Some snow is likely, but the cold is a sure bet

     Here comes the cold.  The bitter blast is really the big story this week after our January thaw.  Temperatures are rapidly falling tonight as arctic air oozes into the region.  By morning all areas will be at least in the single numbers with widespread below zero readings in the foothills and up north. Unlike the past several arctic outbreaks, this one has staying power.  Many nights will end up below […]

    Snow falls into the evening, slick travel continues

    This afternoon will see snow, heavy at times continuing across much of southern Maine.  The further north and west you are from the coastal plain the lighter the snow will be.  A very vigorous piece of energy moving up along the coast is creating a heavy pocket of snow.  This snow will come down quite hard at times making roads snow covered and causing slow travel. The snow will continue […]

    A snowy Saturday for parts of southern Maine

    There is snow back in the forecast for Saturday, but temperatures are going to play a critical role in determining exactly how much snow ends up accumulating. This is going to be one of those weather events where inland areas see up to 6 inches of snow, while the islands off the coast end up receiving an inch or two of slush.     As the precipitation begins Saturday morning it […]

    Arctic air building in Canada will end our January thaw

    Another relatively mild day in mid-January and you might be thinking could winter be over?  Don’t be lulled into a false sense that the worst is over just yet.  How much more snow we see the between now and April is highly unpredictable, but I am very confident we are about to get quite cold once again. Since the snow started flying in December we have received just over 3 […]

    Another mild day, but turning more seasonable this weekend

     Depending on when you read this, there could be some black ice this morning mostly before 9AM.  The bulk of our day is going to be quite stellar with highs in the mid-40s and an abundance of sunshine.   This is likely the last of the very mild days for a while, but it doesn’t cool off dramatically the rest of the week. The mild weather has taken its toll on […]

    January thaw continues with some more rain on the way

    The January thaw underway this weekend continues today with a stellar afternoon.  Highs will reach the mid 40s today with temperatures staying in the 30s across ski country.   While it will be bright and sunny today, there is a freezing rain advisory for the mountains later tonight and early Tuesday. If you will be driving through the areas in pink on the map, know road conditions will be highly variable […]

    Some icing, but heavy rain the big story

    A bit of light snow today was the first of several types of weather southern Maine will be experiencing this weekend.  Next up on the menu is more freezing rain, as if we haven’t seen enough of that this winter.  This round of freezing rain will not be major and I am only expecting small amounts of ice accretion before milder air changes the freezing rain to plain rain Saturday.    Once […]
