    A rain-free forecast

    No, that isn’t a typo in the headline this morning.  There are no watches, no warnings, no thunder and no raindrops for Maine for the next few days.  Finally, a stretch of dry weather is here.   Our wet June pattern is going to quickly transition into a more typical summertime pattern when those showers we do get are scattered and not accompanied by torrents of rain. I’ll be updating […]

    Mostly dry, but a few showers possible

    It was a wild afternoon and evening for parts of the area with vivid lightning, hail, torrential rain and damaging winds.  There was no major damage to report from the storms, but my dogs certainly were not thrilled.   This morning we find areas of clouds, but also some sunny breaks.   While the radar is not showing any precipitation around Maine now, there are two lines of showers back through New […]

    Increasing clouds may bring showers

     Happy Father’s Day!  This morning will end up being the best part of the day as clouds increase and sunshine fades.   A frontal system is going to pass through the area late today and with it comes the chance for showers.  Dry conditions overall will continue through the morning with the chance of showers increasing after 4 PM.   Temperatures will peak early this afternoon before falling back as […]

    Sunshine will return for the weekend

    Happy Flag Day.  Mid-June is usually much better than this.   Another nor’easter is now pushing east and the rain over extreme southern Maine will taper off this morning.   If you are around York, Kittery, and up to about Kennebunk there can be some heavier showers early today.  The trend will be for improvement this afternoon with some sunshine returning.  I can’t rule out another pop-up shower or thunderstorm […]

    More rain headed to the area

    After a wet morning, the rain is now exiting southern Maine.  Our break in the wet weather will be brief and I am reminded of the saying “be careful what you wish for”.  The saying is stuck in my head as I think back to the first week of May after 4 weeks of little rain.  Since that time we have had well above average amounts of rain and more […]

    Dry afternoon to become a wet night

    More rain is on the way.  There are flood watches up from Virginia to Maine this morning for all the heavy rain on the way.  I am expecting a general 1 to 2 inch rainstorm beginning late today and continuing overnight.  When you combine this additional rainfall with the heavy rain from Friday we start to run the risk of more urban and street flooding. Also, rivers and streams are […]

    Clearing on the way for southern Maine

    Our heavy overnight and early morning rain is now departing the area and the sun will make an appearance from southwest towards the northeast later today.  If you look at the radar image from this morning below, you can see the twist in the circulation of the storm just east of Portland. Rainfall hasn’t been that high with most spots less than 2 inches.  Some impressive rainfall amounts have fallen […]

    Flood warnings and watches overnight

    Heavy rain continue to spread north overnight. Already flood warnings are in effect for almost all of southern New England.  Here in Maine we have flood watches for mostly street and small stream flooding. This map shows areas in green that currently have a flood watch. I don’t expect widespread river flooding from this system.   By tomorrow afternoon the rain will be over and skies will partially clear.  We should […]

    How much rain from Andrea this weekend?

    We do have rain on the way, but much of the weekend is going to be dry and rain free. I would not cancel outdoor plans for the weekend especially those from Saturday at noon onward.  If you have an outdoor event or game Saturday morning, that might be a problem. Let’s get right to the overview and then I will give you the specifics and try to break down […]
