    Wet Labor Day leading to a cooler mid-week

    Let me start this afternoon’s blog by stating how fortunate many of us were in southern Maine this weekend to not be hounded by torrential rain and thunder. You might not be aware that parts of southern New England had close to 6 inches of rain yesterday and there was quite a bit of flooding on the roadways down there. I’ll be updating the details of the weather on Twitter […]

    Labor Day weekend forecast is mostly dry

     A bit of everything is in store this weekend, but the theme is most of the weekend will be dry.   As evening falls upon southern Maine a southerly breeze is keeping the coast cooler than inland areas with moderate levels of humidity for all of us. Since the air is originating over southern climes, our nighttime temperatures are going to be quite mild this final weekend of August.   I don’t […]

    A few showers before the weekend, then sunshine and drier

    A warm and sunny morning greeted us this morning. As I was walking the dogs around sunrise I thought how the air still has that warm weather scent to it. I know over the next few weeks this will change and be replaced by a cool crispness. Disturbances will continue to move though the wind flow above us through Thursday. These areas will bring the risk of showers. Last night […]

    Super Sunday of weather, changes Monday

    Vacationland is living up to its name this week with thousands of people visiting our great state of Maine.  The weather has been cooperating and on balance will be quite nice through Labor Day.  We do have some changes this week with a couple of shots of rain, but not enough to alleviate our short-term dry spell. Changes will take the form of clouds, some showers and an increase in […]

    Last week of August to close mostly on a sunny and dry note

    At the end of July I wrote about a big change in the pattern that would bring cooler and mostly drier air to southern Maine as we headed in August.  As we head into the last week of the month, it appears this will end up being one of the nicest Augusts in a several years.   Temperatures yesterday closed in on 90F, with Portland hitting 89F, one of the […]

    How will all this great weather affect the fall foliage season?

    It wasn’t a beach day across southern Maine yesterday as a frontal system just offshore allowed clouds to hold tough for much of the afternoon.  I kind of like days like that as they tend to slow me down and also allow me to work outside without the heat we can experience in mid-August. I’ll be updating the details of the weather and the best places for leaf peeping on […]

    Great weekend of weather leads to a warm stretch ahead.

    When the summer of 2013 is over we will remember the rain of June, the humidity of July and the spectacular weather of August.  As horrible as June was this year, August is making up for it in spades.  The fine weather is going to continue for the next week with barely an interruption in the sunshine. As moisture streams northward into the mid-Atlantic region Sunday a few high clouds […]

    The weather for the next week is just about perfect

     Before Maine became the place where we lived life the way it should be, it was vacationland.  Whether you are here for your first or fiftieth time or just living in the greatest state in the union, our weather will be something to behold the next week or more.  Highs during the day will reach for the lower 80s and temperatures at night will fall to the 50s.   Donning […]

    A day of showers followed by many days of dry weather

     Today is going to be a day without sunshine, but in the current weather pattern we are in, this is the exception, not the rule. Every summer there is a week or two that end up the perfect week for vacationing.  For me, the perfect vacation week is sunny all but one day and that one has clouds and showers.  The reason I like to have one day  of inclement […]
