    Sunshine will return for the weekend

    Happy Flag Day.  Mid-June is usually much better than this.   Another nor’easter is now pushing east and the rain over extreme southern Maine will taper off this morning.   If you are around York, Kittery, and up to about Kennebunk there can be some heavier showers early today.  The trend will be for improvement this afternoon with some sunshine returning.  I can’t rule out another pop-up shower or thunderstorm […]

    More rain headed to the area

    After a wet morning, the rain is now exiting southern Maine.  Our break in the wet weather will be brief and I am reminded of the saying “be careful what you wish for”.  The saying is stuck in my head as I think back to the first week of May after 4 weeks of little rain.  Since that time we have had well above average amounts of rain and more […]

    Dry afternoon to become a wet night

    More rain is on the way.  There are flood watches up from Virginia to Maine this morning for all the heavy rain on the way.  I am expecting a general 1 to 2 inch rainstorm beginning late today and continuing overnight.  When you combine this additional rainfall with the heavy rain from Friday we start to run the risk of more urban and street flooding. Also, rivers and streams are […]

    Clearing on the way for southern Maine

    Our heavy overnight and early morning rain is now departing the area and the sun will make an appearance from southwest towards the northeast later today.  If you look at the radar image from this morning below, you can see the twist in the circulation of the storm just east of Portland. Rainfall hasn’t been that high with most spots less than 2 inches.  Some impressive rainfall amounts have fallen […]

    Flood warnings and watches overnight

    Heavy rain continue to spread north overnight. Already flood warnings are in effect for almost all of southern New England.  Here in Maine we have flood watches for mostly street and small stream flooding. This map shows areas in green that currently have a flood watch. I don’t expect widespread river flooding from this system.   By tomorrow afternoon the rain will be over and skies will partially clear.  We should […]

    How much rain from Andrea this weekend?

    We do have rain on the way, but much of the weekend is going to be dry and rain free. I would not cancel outdoor plans for the weekend especially those from Saturday at noon onward.  If you have an outdoor event or game Saturday morning, that might be a problem. Let’s get right to the overview and then I will give you the specifics and try to break down […]

    Two perfect days then a wet start to the weekend

    Ah June, the month when summer officially begins.  We have already had a heat wave in a few places and certainly hot weather all around.  Now the pattern looks like it is going to go into a cooler and damper mode.   I know when I write something like that the first thing you might think is that it is going to rain the rest of the month.  While there […]

    Cooler at coast, hot inland, storms tonight

    A very warm, but not hot day is underway for southern and central Maine. The warmest spots will once again be interior York and Cumberland counties with areas around Hollis, Sanford, Buxton, and Bridgton closing in on the 90F mark.  In order to predict the high for the day, we look to what the temperature of the air is at around 5000 feet.  This spot in the atmosphere gives us […]

    Some heat and humidity, but not record breaking

    After a warm and muggy night a pair of very hot days is on the way.  Temperatures today,  while warm, will remain below  record levels.   The record high in Portland  is 94F and this is also the record for May.  I don’t think we will break it, although if winds don’t turn to a sea breeze in the afternoon, we could hit 90F even in the Forest City.  The […]
