    Two perfect days then a wet start to the weekend

    Ah June, the month when summer officially begins.  We have already had a heat wave in a few places and certainly hot weather all around.  Now the pattern looks like it is going to go into a cooler and damper mode.   I know when I write something like that the first thing you might think is that it is going to rain the rest of the month.  While there […]

    Cooler at coast, hot inland, storms tonight

    A very warm, but not hot day is underway for southern and central Maine. The warmest spots will once again be interior York and Cumberland counties with areas around Hollis, Sanford, Buxton, and Bridgton closing in on the 90F mark.  In order to predict the high for the day, we look to what the temperature of the air is at around 5000 feet.  This spot in the atmosphere gives us […]

    Some heat and humidity, but not record breaking

    After a warm and muggy night a pair of very hot days is on the way.  Temperatures today,  while warm, will remain below  record levels.   The record high in Portland  is 94F and this is also the record for May.  I don’t think we will break it, although if winds don’t turn to a sea breeze in the afternoon, we could hit 90F even in the Forest City.  The […]

    Showers and storms today then first heat of summer

    Knowing we have a couple of  days of warm weather on the way, you can’t imagine how exciting it is to a gardener to hear the sound of rain at 5AM.  Bleary eyed I run to the radar hoping that the extent of the showers is large and that the rain won’t be over quickly.  This morning we find widely scattered showers crossing the region.  After these showers end, there […]

    Cool with a few showers, but much better Monday

    The biggest irony of the day has to be the closure of Santa’s Village today as they clean up all the snow.  I have had several are you kidding me moments of my own this weekend.  First, the temperature in the house was under my turn the heat on threshold of 60F, standing at a chilly 58F this morning.  As I sit here in the “sunroom” writing this blog I […]

    Rain continues overnight, slow improvement Sunday

    This had to be one of the worst May 25ths of weather on record, wouldn’t you agree?  A cold rain, a gusty wind and rawness to the air just seemed to go right through your bones.  This was certainly a far cry from this day back in 2007 when it was a record 92F! We are nearing the peak of this late May nor’easter and by early afternoon Sunday things […]

    Cool and wet, but also many hours of dry weather this weekend

    Cold and wet, that is the theme for this year’s Memorial Day weekend although it’s not a 3 day washout by any means.   While it is rather muggy and warm this morning, colder air will filter into the region during the day.  This is going to set up a very chilly pair of days this weekend.    I’ll be updating the forecast throughout the week on Twitter at @growingwisdom […]

    Chilly and damp then warm and muggy then back again

    After a stormy weekend last weekend across the nation’s mid-section I blogged about how tornadoes form and why we don’t see them much across New England. Little did I realize over the next two days one of the stronger tornadoes to hit the United States would destroy much of Moore Oklahoma and that southern New England would have our own tornado warnings. The weather has fluctuated greatly the past couple […]

    Tornadoes in the nations heartland won’t affect Maine

    What a horrible day across tornado alley.  For the past several days folks across much of the Midwest have seen multiple outbreaks of tornadoes.  Tornadoes are one of nature’s most ferocious phenomena.  Here in Maine tornadoes are relatively rare, however we do get them.  The last major outbreak of tornadoes was back in the summer 201o when two tornadoes ripped through Gorham and Limerick.  I’ll be updating the forecast throughout […]
