    Super Sunday of weather, changes Monday

    Vacationland is living up to its name this week with thousands of people visiting our great state of Maine.  The weather has been cooperating and on balance will be quite nice through Labor Day.  We do have some changes this week with a couple of shots of rain, but not enough to alleviate our short-term dry spell. Changes will take the form of clouds, some showers and an increase in […]

    Last week of August to close mostly on a sunny and dry note

    At the end of July I wrote about a big change in the pattern that would bring cooler and mostly drier air to southern Maine as we headed in August.  As we head into the last week of the month, it appears this will end up being one of the nicest Augusts in a several years.   Temperatures yesterday closed in on 90F, with Portland hitting 89F, one of the […]

    How will all this great weather affect the fall foliage season?

    It wasn’t a beach day across southern Maine yesterday as a frontal system just offshore allowed clouds to hold tough for much of the afternoon.  I kind of like days like that as they tend to slow me down and also allow me to work outside without the heat we can experience in mid-August. I’ll be updating the details of the weather and the best places for leaf peeping on […]

    Great weekend of weather leads to a warm stretch ahead.

    When the summer of 2013 is over we will remember the rain of June, the humidity of July and the spectacular weather of August.  As horrible as June was this year, August is making up for it in spades.  The fine weather is going to continue for the next week with barely an interruption in the sunshine. As moisture streams northward into the mid-Atlantic region Sunday a few high clouds […]

    The weather for the next week is just about perfect

     Before Maine became the place where we lived life the way it should be, it was vacationland.  Whether you are here for your first or fiftieth time or just living in the greatest state in the union, our weather will be something to behold the next week or more.  Highs during the day will reach for the lower 80s and temperatures at night will fall to the 50s.   Donning […]

    A day of showers followed by many days of dry weather

     Today is going to be a day without sunshine, but in the current weather pattern we are in, this is the exception, not the rule. Every summer there is a week or two that end up the perfect week for vacationing.  For me, the perfect vacation week is sunny all but one day and that one has clouds and showers.  The reason I like to have one day  of inclement […]

    Maine has great conditions for Perseid meteor shower this weekend

    A super weekend of weather is underway across Maine.  This is going to be an ideal weekend to enjoy all that Maine has to offer in summer.  As a bonus we have an astronomical treat to accompany the meteorological forecast.  Grab your favorite lawn chair, a blanket and something to drink because the year’s best meteor show is already underway.  If you have seen a meteor or two the past […]

    Showers end week, but sunshine starts weekend

    Rain continues to fall across the region with pockets of heavier showers embedded within the larger area of precipitation.  Throughout the afternoon and evening the rain will come down hard enough to produce urban street flooding.  It looks like the timing of the rain will impact the Friday commute which is normally horrible on Friday’s, especially in the summer.   The cause of this rain is a frontal system inching its […]

    One more great day followed by showers and humidity

    Have you enjoyed the past few days of weather?  I have to say this is some of the best weather I can remember in early August in a long time. This almost makes up for the rain in June and the humidity and heat in July. We have one more super day for today before some changes take place at the end of the week.  One of the reasons our weather […]
