    Aurora Borealis, Northern Lights Possibly Seen Overnight

    There has been a lot of excitement about the possibility of seeing the aurora borealis  or northern lights tonight. These types of phenomena are difficult to predict. I’ll be updating my thoughts on the Aurora on Twitter @growingwisdom follow me there and send in your reports from around the world. What we do know is that the aurora go through periods of activity and lulls.  There are numbers that predict […]

    Slow moderation in temperature towards a milder weekend

    Although deep cold continues across the region this morning most areas in the single numbers and I couldn’t find any readings between Portland and Fryeburg below zero.  The wind won’t be what it was on Monday, but will still be a factor, especially before noon when temperatures are lowest. You can follow updates to the forecast and share your weather and gardening question on Twitter @growingwisdom Snowy winter thus far […]

    Cold and dry stretch begins today

    How about that wind?  Wind chill readings are once again below zero and the warmest part of the day occurred several hours ago at midnight when temperatures were still in 20s.  Since then, the mercury has been falling and is now in teens in all areas.  Readings will continue to fall this morning, before leveling off and rising a couple of degrees this afternoon.  Updates to my forecast can be […]

    Up and down ride ahead with temperatures, led by some wintry weather

    Another cold, but not so bitter morning, is well under way across all of Maine. If you follow me on Twitter (@growingwisdom) you might have already read this, but I had to laugh this morning as I am writing this blog and I looked up from my desk to catch my neighbor, in a very colorful robe, pulling the Sunday paper off the top of a snow bank with a […]

    Bitter cold weather overnight

     After a cold day, we have one of the colder nights in several years ahead.  All areas of the state will be subzero by 8 or 9PM and stay that way through the first few hours after sunrise.  The sunshine Saturday will help to move the mercury quite a bit higher than today with many places almost doubling their temperatures.  The high around Portland on Saturday will reach the lower […]

    Storm ends this morning, dangerous cold continues

    Snow and wind continue for a few more hours this morning, but will be winding down.  The cold is going to be dangerous all day and there is a wind chill warning in effect for the area until early afternoon.  At times the wind chill will fall to 30 below or more and this can create a situation where frost bite occurs in less than a few minutes.  It’s a […]

    Bitter wind chill and heavy snow continue much of the night

     Our first storm of 2014 is quickly becoming memorable.  Heavy snow, over a foot, combined with temperatures below zero, strong winds and low visibility are all combining to make for a rough weather night. A blizzard warning is in effect for the coastline from Kittery to Rockland and other warnings and advisories for heavy snow and cold are in place for much of the area. The blizzard warning is in […]

    Cold for everyone with a wide range of snow amounts

     The upcoming snowstorm is going to bring snow, wind, possible coastal flooding and very cold temperatures.  Of all of these variables for me, the cold and wind will be the most notable. Maine folks are hardy souls and it takes more than a moderate storm to slow us down.  However, we have just had two back to back months of very cold weather and the upcoming storm will occur with […]

    Cold with snow on the way, mostly over southern Maine

    A cold day continues with a brisk breeze and a blend of clouds and sunshine.  There’s a winter storm watch posted for Cumberland and York Counties for tonight and Friday. The fact this is posted for only Maine’s southern two counties is an indication we are on the northern fringe of a storm passing south of Maine.  The watch was issued because these areas have the greatest chance of seeing […]
