    Snow inland, rain changing back to snow at coast

    As of late afternoon, much of the area that was seeing rain earlier today is now getting snow. For instance, in Portland, after several hours of rain, it is now snowing again.  The snow is having a hard time accumulating as temperatures are still above freezing.  As the night progresses the snow will accumulate several inches even along the coast.  I’ll be updating the forecast throughout the storm on Twitter […]

    Winter storm continues for the afternoon

    Snow is falling across much of southern Maine this afternoon. Already up to 8 inches have accumulated, especially west of the Maine Turnpike where speed limits have been lowered.  Snow will continue up to and just beyond sunset.  The heaviest of the snow will tend to wind down after 4 PM.  There have been some areas that got over 2 inches of snow in an hour.  There can be a […]

    Steady snow for much of today

    Forecasters are certainly going to be earning their money this month.  Here we go again with another very complicated situation unfolding for southern Maine and the seacoast area of New Hampshire.  As you are no doubt aware there is some snow in the forecast for late tonight and Sunday.  The atmosphere is a funny thing, we can try like mad (and it can be maddening) to predict it, but sometimes […]

    Light to moderate snowstorm this weekend

    We have a split weekend weather wise on the way. After a bright, sunny, and comfortable day today tomorrow will see clouds thicken, but remaining dry for the daylight hours. Both today and tomorrow will be great ski days, but tomorrow you will need a good pair of goggles as there will be lots of that flat light under foot. A storm is going to form along the coast to […]

    Still many unanswered questions on the weekend storm

    As I review latest  suite of data the trend is for a slightly colder and weaker system for Saturday night and Sunday, in other words, no massive storm.  We will certainly still have a storm to watch and there will be some wind and accumulating snow, but we are not looking at a blockbuster system.   Tonight will be clear and cold with diminishing winds and temperatures falling back to […]

    Watching another weekend storm

    Here we go again.  For the third weekend in a row another coastal storm is poised to affect the area.   There are some differences between this storm and the past two.   Prior to this storm warm air will try to flow north and will impact the position of the rain/snow line.   Here in New England, winter storms have both cold and warm air as part of their […]

    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 […]
