    Snow moving into mountains, rain at coast

    Rain and snow is rapidly pushing through southern Maine with rain at the coast and wet snow inland. Latest radar trends show the precipitation moving north and there will be some big puddles developing as the rain has trouble finding its way to the sewer system.  It’s school vacation week and this should be music to the ears of those who depend on snow to make a living. Winter in […]

    Most of the snow will fall this morning

    An intense ocean storm continues to gain strength as it moves eastward this morning. Southern Maine is on the western edge of the snow shield and there is often a sharp cut-off line between who gets snow and who doesn’t. So far, most of the heavier accumulating snow has been confined to coastal areas of the State, but even there not a lot of  snow has fallen. In other words; […]

    Mild and springlike today

    We have a great story about the weather to tell this morning. Today is going to get spring fever going in earnest with temperatures into the 40s in many spots. Sunshine will be mixed with clouds and you can expect to see water running down the sides of the road as more melting takes place. The cure for that fever arrives this weekend with colder air and some snow. If […]

    Any snow tonight will miss Maine

    You may have heard about some potential snow tonight from another coastal storm. The good news folks — if you don’t want more snow — is that the storm isn’t going to hit us. All indications are, as the storm passes out to sea overnight and early Thursday, the snow shield will try to move north, but will be unsuccessful. I’d love to hear from you. Please find me on […]

    Mild, wet start to your Monday

    After the record-breaking snowstorm of the past weekend, milder air will bring melting to the region today. Of course, it’s going to take more than a day of rain and temperatures in the 40s to melt this snowpack, but every little bit helps.   I’ll be updating the forecast on Twitter at @growingwisdom. Send your observations or ask me a question. Warmer air is streaming north this morning ahead of a […]

    How much snow fell in the big snowstorm of 2013

    I thought it would be fun to just do a short entry of the snow totals around the state and much of New England today.  From Gorham to Boston to Hartford, CT, this was a storm that many of us will never forget.  The good news is that most of us kept our power and the snow was not heavy so cleaning it up won’t take too long.  Just imagine […]

    Portland and other cites and town experience historic snows

      Historic snow totals around Portland.  This certainly one for the record books.  Portland has a new benchmark of snow at 31.9 inches and still a bit more to go.  Many areas around Portland have seen between 30 and 34 inches of snow. The good news is that the worst of the blizzard is now over and  conditions will slowly during the rest of the afternoon.  This doesn’t mean we […]

    Thunderstorms with snow just south of Maine

    Some very heavy bands of snow are now rotating towards the coast.  Expect snow to fall at 2-3 inches per hour for the next several hours. Snow broke out across Maine early this morning, and has already accumulated 6 to 12 inches from Augusta to York. The reason the snow started so early was that warmer air was trying to move inland and hit the cold air along the coast. […]

    Early bursts of snow already leave 6 inches, much more ahead

    Snow, some of it moderate, broke out early across southern Maine, leaving 6 inches in Portland by 11 a.m. on Friday. This is more than expected so early, and is due to the cold air rushing over Casco Bay. The main part of the storm hasn’t even arrived yet to our south. Notice on the radar, the area of green is very localized.  However, what this early snow will do is […]
