    Periodic icing continues today

     I know schools are off today so traffic won’t be as bad today as a typical Monday.  However, there’s still a freezing rain advisory  for Portland and an ice storm warning over the capitol district.     In addition to the freezing rain, there is a lot of fog out there as well and this can hamper travel further. When we experience freezing rain, it’s because the air above the ground […]

    Another round of freezing rain for some Monday

    Another round of precipitation is going to move through late tonight and the first part of Monday.  Unlike Sunday, when it was marginally cold for freezing rain, temperatures have now fallen well below 32F across statewide, so there will be more in the way of  freezing rain early Monday closer to the coastline. If you have a report on how much ice you have received, please tweet me @growingwisdom on […]

    Periods of rain and freezing rain into Monday

    Our warnings and advisories continue this morning across the region. Greater Portland  has not seen much in the way of ice accumulation and the power outages to the north and west remain low.  Temperatures have been sitting right at 32F for the past several hours and until these readings fall to about 30F or lower, it’s difficult to accumulate ice. As ice forms, it actually releases a tiny bit of something […]

    Ice storm threat continues through Monday.

    Maine is still under the gun for a very problematic storm this weekend. There are a lot of warnings and advisories up for the state today so let’s review them. First, we have a freezing rain advisory for the coastal plain.  This advisory is used when freezing rain will be an issue, but amounts will stay around a quarter of an inch.   This can still cause power outages, tree damage […]

    Unsettled weather continues through the weekend

    A winter weather advisory is up for the morning as a result of some light freezing rain and drizzle.  Some areas where the roads are untreated could be quite slick and your own driveway and walkway could have become a slipping hazard overnight.  The good news is that coastal areas remained mild enough so icing is not an issue this morning. There is also a winter storm watch in effect […]

    Sunshine today, but a possible icy situation this weekend

    This time of year cold air is very powerful. The next four to five weeks are really the heart of winter cold.   The strength of the cold air is an important player in the upcoming forecast into the weekend. There is going to a be a frontal system, along a very strong jet stream, dividing deep winter cold from spring-like warmth cutting through New England this weekend. Because of where […]

    Quick hitting storm ends around midnight

     Snow has now moved into southern Maine and will continue the rest of the evening becoming heavier and steadier through 9PM before winding down in the Portland area by midnight.  Down East the snow will linger longer and there is a winter storm warning for heavier amounts of snow there. I’ll be updating the snow forecast as it changes on Twitter at @growingwisdom Please follow me there. Feel free to […]

    Flurries or light snow today, bulk of accumulation overnight

    Cold huh? Check out some of the readings across the areas this morning. I was quite impressed with Sanford at 17 below zero. Sanford is most often the warmest spot in Maine and today it is the coldest spot right along with Fryeburg, which was at 19 below!  I’m not a fan of this cold and the sound of the heat constantly clicking on makes my wallet shudder. Sorry oil […]

    Mid-winter cold tonight, more snow Tuesday

     It’s going to be a cold night, but the moonlight on the snow will at least give a serene beauty to the frozen landscape.  This is the “cold moon” appropriately named on a night when even cities and towns at the coast are head towards and perhaps a few degrees under zero.  Temperatures this cold are more typical of mid-winter, but are not record breaking. I’ll be updating the snow […]
