    Mild Monday with scattered PM showers

    Last evening spring peepers where reported being heard in parts of Maine for the first time this season.  Peepers are small frogs that will mate in the next few weeks. The chorus of peeping is a sure sign of spring and only lasts a short time.  Peepers start when overnight temperatures in late March and early April remain above 40F. After a mild night last evening that brought a scattering of […]

    A nice Easter weekend

    As we close out the month of March this weekend it will go down in the record books as a cold and snowy one.  On Sunday, it will be the lamb not the lion leading us into April.  You probably noticed a lot of clouds around the area the past couple of days and today will continue that trend.  A weak bit of energy will rotate through the area during […]

    Some snow in the forecast, sorta

    Clouds are on the increase today and the sky will look quite wintry later this afternoon. Yesterday I had a several people ask about the snowstorm for today.  While there is the word "snow" in the forecast, there isn’t a snowstorm on the way.   One of the problems with the internet, and there are many, is that forecasts get boiled down to images.  When you look at the forecast via […]

    Quiet week of March weather

    I hope you enjoyed the wonderful March weather this weekend. You might have noticed your car was quite warm inside if you parked in the sun this weekend.  The sun drives the weather and the sun is getting stronger this time of the year, really fast.  Since the beginning of the month, the sun has risen about 10 degrees higher at noon.  To put that in context, the sun is […]

    Spring is here – is all this cold and snow normal?

    This morning we are waking up to 6 to 14 inches of fresh snow on the ground. I know the world looks like the middle of January for many of us, but just after 7 a.m. this morning astronomical spring arrived. A question I got quite a bit yesterday was “are we done with winter?”  Other folks asked me why this winter has been so different from last year’s.  I […]

    A few more hours of heavy snow for southern Maine

    Round two of another winter storm is bringing very heavy snow to southern Maine this evening.  Latest radar trends show the back edge of the snow just pushing into southern New Hampshire, and I will be watching the movement of this area all evening.  Another several inches of snow is likely, but the heaviest will be over in Portland between 8 and 10 p.m. There might be up to a […]

    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 […]
