    Snow changing to sleet, freezing rain and drizzle before ending

    A storm system is lifting northward from our south this afternoon and continue to bring a mixed bag of precipitation to the area until dark.  This isn’t a major event, but will cause some slippery travel for the afternoon and evening where surfaces are not treated. I’ll be updating the forecast as it changes on Twitter at @growingwisdom Please follow me there. Feel free to comment or ask questions too. […]

    Dry Sunday, a bit of messy weather Monday morning

     A chilly start to Sunday will give way to an increase in clouds as temperatures remain  just under the freezing mark most of the day.   We do have some wintry weather for tomorrow.  Now, please repeat after me, “this is a small storm, this is not a big event, this is a small storm, and this is not a big event.”  However (there’s always one of those) the timing is […]

    Dry and cool weekend, messy Monday morning likely

     A coating of snow and sleet on the grass in a few places with a bit more in spots was long before sunrise today.  Once you got north of Freeport almost nothing fell with barely a trace at my cottage in Harpswell.  The bulk of the weekend looks sunny and chilly with temperatures below normal, but not excessively cold. The pattern across the country remains active with a weather system […]

    Fog, rain and even some snow in the forecast

     Damp conditions continue overnight across all of southern Maine.  Some light fog can become quite dense late at night and travel could be impacted in places.  As milder air to our south tries to ride north it’s getting stuck and producing all this fog.  The battle between warm and cold air is going to play a big role in our weather over the next 5 days. During the day I […]

    Winter 2013-2014 current trends, discussion and forecast

    December is off to a chilly and slippery start with icy roads in places the past few mornings. Meteorological winter began December 1st and ends February 28th. Those 90 days are the coldest of the year.  For much of the country, the months of December, January and February also provide the bulk of snowfall for the winter season. If you live in a cold climate, you want to know the […]

    Slick travel again overnight and into Tuesday morning

    Another night of a lot of moisture will combine with temperatures falling at or below freezing to make for slick morning conditions in some areas.  The foothills and mountains will certainly have icy roads, but the air may cool enough to give slippery conditions right to the coast. I’ll be updating the forecast for the week on Twitter at @growingwisdom Please follow me there. Feel free to comment or ask […]

    Icy travel around capitol district this morning

      A weak boundary of mild and cold air will be hanging around southern Maine this morning.  This contrast in temperature will provide enough lift to give parts of the area  sleet, freezing rain and rain.  In areas away from the coast below freezing travel will can be difficult on untreated surfaces.  The icy roads have already caused numerous accidents and traffic issues and this can continue well through the […]

    Very cold morning starts a chilly Saturday

     While today is going to be a very cold day, winds will be light and with abundant sunshine it won’t be such a bad day. In summer we talk about humidity as the variable that makes us feel uncomfortable during the summer, in winter, it’s the wind, winds will be almost non-existent all day. Most areas will remain in the 20s the bulk of the day with a few areas […]

    Heavy rain, mild air and wind followed by cold and dry for the holiday

    Accidents on the Maine Turnpike again this morning as a windswept rain continues across Maine.  Even in ski country the snow is changing to rain as very mild air streams north from the tropics.  There are flood watches up for much of the area with warnings and advisories for the wind.    While most of the precipitation will fall as rain, but there will be some snow on the western […]
