    Portland area may see 15 inches of snow

    Snow has begun breaking out across southern New England this evening. This first round of snow is moving north and will be in southern Maine in the wee hours of Tuesday morning. Those folks heading to work or school tomorrow will see up to a couple of inches of snow on the ground. But this isn’t the end of the story – there will be more snow on the way. […]

    Heavy snow on the way for much of Maine

    Here we go again or should I say still? Another snowstorm is headed for the area. Snowfall so far this winter in Portland stands at 88 inches and there is a chance a foot of snow from the upcoming storm could take us over the 100-inch mark. A  final total of around 8 inches of the white stuff is very likely, but that 12-inch final amount certainly needs to be […]

    Another coastal storm for next week

    The march to warm spring weather can often be frustrating and this year is going to bare out that fact. As I review the charts today, one aspect that screams out to me is the lack of any sign of truly mild air for the rest of March. You might ask how I can possibly predict the next two weeks, when we are still unsure of the details for Tuesday’s […]

    Colder times ahead, spring fever cured for now

    Yesterday was one of those mid-March days when you realize that we are closer to spring than the heart of winter.  Temperatures reached the 40s to near 50F and with the abundant sunshine it really was one of the nicer afternoons so far this year.   Occasionally, my work life allows me to take a break during the day.  I was able to prune some roses, put down some organic […]

    Rain on the way, very different than 20 years ago this week

    A flood watch is up for areas around Rumford and Norway as some rain moves through the area later today and overnight.  Mild air will combine with the rani to create enough snow melt for some smaller rivers and streams to reach flood stage.  I am not expecting any significant flooding from this event.  Drier and colder weather returns for the end of the week after a nice day tomorrow. […]

    Comet Pan-STARRS streaks across the sky this evening

    What a great winter day here in Maine. Abundant sunshine, mild temperatures and generally light winds.  You couldn’t have asked for a nicer March day and I hope you got a chance to enjoy it. Tonight as the sun sets we may get a chance to see a celestial treat.  Comet Pan-STARRS is going to be visible in the southwestern sky just after sunset. The comet Pan-STARRS is going to be […]

    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 […]
