    Great weather continues into holiday weekend

    The long holiday weekend is closing in fast and other than your plans, the weather this weekend is the most important thing.  As I mentioned earlier in the week, the forecast was going to be a bit tricky heading into the weekend, however Maine is going to fare quite well. Temperatures will fall to chilly, but not cold levels overnight as high pressure remains in control of the region.   […]

    Severe weather possible in places tonight

    The further south you are today the warmer the weather is as summer-like temperatures and humidity have pushed into extreme southern sections of the state.  While it is still in the 60s in many areas, humidity levels have crept up and the air is ripe for storms this evening and the first part of the overnight hours.   Currently, the line of storms is located across eastern New York where […]

    Scientific inquiry and the IPCC report on climate, fact, fiction or both?

    There is so much information out there about the latest report from the United Nations IPCC panel on climate change that I don’t want to just repeat what you can already find out there.  What I am presenting is some insight into how I read the report and from where my own love of science originates.  My grandfather took courses at a local college well into his 70s, he had […]

    Nice weather for weekend football and foliage

    Foliage is beginning to come on strong over far northwestern sections of Maine and will only increase in intensity during the upcoming weeks.   Maine is such a large state, if you wanted to view peak foliage you could drive around and do so for almost an entire month!   While peak foliage season won’t arrive at the coast for 2 to 3 more weeks, it’s already happening across the […]

    How long can this weather last?

    When winter does set in, and it will, we will need to remember September when the weather was nothing short of perfection.   Stellar, excellent, wonderful, perfect, ideal, amazing, super, delightful or marvelous.  No matter what superlative I use, you get the idea.  It’s not easy to blog about the weather when there isn’t much more to say.  Day after day of sunshine is kind of boring from a meteorologists […]

    50/50 split to the weekend forecast

Saturday, we will watch a […]

    Stellar weather into the weekend a stark contrast to 1938 Hurricane 75 years ago

    It’s hard to imagine a hurricane hitting southern Maine in the face of such perfect weather this week.  September is one of the months many consider the best of the year.  Our warm days with crystal clear skies are going to continue into the weekend before clouds and showers take hold later Sunday. I’ll be updating the details of the forecast on Twitter at @growingwisdom Please follow me there. Feel […]
