    Unsettled start to the weekend, nicer finish

      Although there have been a few showers the past 24 hours, we have not seen anything close to the amount of rain we need right now.  We can see more showers through this evening, but a general long duration event isn’t going to happen.  The unsettled day is thanks to a storm system spinning in the atmosphere to our south.  The satellite image below shows the storm spinning around […]

    Much needed rain on the way for later this week

    Another perfect day of weather another day without rain.  Our fine stretch of nearly flawless weather is about to undergo a big change for the rest of the week and into the weekend.  A block in the atmosphere has prevented any rain from reaching the area for several weeks.  January and February had very close to normal precipitation, but since that time we have had only about half the amount […]

    Afternoon chill with passing clouds

    What a difference a few hours makes.  An east wind has dropped temperatures to very cool levels along the coast with Portland now at 51F!   I was having a rare cup of coffee this morning with a friend (I am more a tea guy) and discussing what to blog about this afternoon.  He quipped, that there wasn’t much to say about nice weather which is certainly mostly true.  However, all […]

    Sunshine abounds, but we need rain

     I thought it might be interesting on this last day of April to see where there is still snow on the ground. The map below shows that most of the snow is now long gone, but  there is still some of the white stuff in the mountains and parts of the Allagash.  Although the weather has been mild, the lack of any major rainstorms has allowed a very slow melt […]

    Dry weather continues much of the week

    Every once in a while the weather becomes so perfect it’s almost hard to believe this is Maine.  The next week is going to be one of those periods where you might quip, “Why can’t it always be like this”. Cool mornings and mild afternoons with plenty of sunshine are going to repeat itself over and over into Friday.  There won’t be much difference in how high or low temperatures […]

    Super weekend ahead

    The weather forecast for the next 5 to 7 days looks so wonderful it makes me nervous.  You might think what would make you nervous about sunshine and dry weather?  There are two things.  First, this time of year having a full week of no rain isn’t good.  We are going to finish April with a rain deficit and this will be the second of the first 4 months of […]

    Raw, damp and chilly, but better weather on the horizon

    I think I heard a collective groan this morning when folks realized the day was going to feel more like early March than a week before May.   The good news is that the cold chilly weather isn’t going to last that long and by tomorrow afternoon most of you will get to enjoy a bit of sunshine and temperatures 15°F degrees warmer than today.  We have all seen springs […]

    Chilly few days, but mild towards the weekend

     Temperatures are winter cold this morning with most places under the 30F mark and several towns in the 20s. Temperatures this cold in late April while not typical are not record breaking.  It is unusual enough for a frost warning to be put into effect for much of Cape Cod and the islands where these kinds of temperatures are more unusual.    I’ll be updating the forecast all week on […]

    Showers overnight, cooler with sunshine this weekend

    I get up this morning to do my blog and something akin to a Hollywood movie is going on just west of Boston. Unfortunately, this is real. What a bizarre and twisted night and morning. I just hope this gets resolved and people stay safe. I’ll be updating the weekend forecast information on Twitter at @growingwisdom Please follow me there. Feel free to comment or ask questions too. Luckily the […]
