    Spring arrives today at 6:45 p.m.

    Spring arrives at 6:45 p.m. today which means the sun, at that time, is at 90 degree above the horizon, directly over the equator. There are two equinoxes every year – in March and September – when the Sun shines directly on the equator and the length of night and day are nearly equal, but […]

    Unsettled weekend will bring some snow to state

    One of my students from Colby texted me last night with a picture off his cell phone showing 12 to 18 inches of snow this weekend for the Augusta/Waterville region. Now, I can certainly get a forecast incorrect, but I think those kind of numbers are way out of line with what I am seeing […]

    Like it or not, daylight saving time begins this weekend

    Several years ago the start of daylight saving time was another signal spring was getting into full swing. Like opening day for the Red Sox, the late sunsets were a sign that warmer temperatures were going to become commonplace, and bare ground – not huge snow banks – was the rule. Thanks to the Energy Policy Act […]

    A nice afternoon of sunshine lies ahead, but blustery conditions will continue. Temperatures are going to remain in the lower to middle 30s in southern areas. The mountains will see readings in the 20s. A cold night will lead us into a nice sunny Tuesday. It won’t be very warm tomorrow, but at least the […]

    February 2015: Cold is the big story in southern Maine

    After a bit of light snow earlier today, it appears we are in for a cold, but tranquil end to a record breaking February. It’s been an incredible month of weather and hard to believe all the extreme cold and snow we’ve experienced since turning the page of the calendar a mere 25 days ago. […]

    There’s 2 to 3 feet of snow on the ground … so when will it melt?

    There’s still a lot of snow on the ground and with cold and dry weather most of this week, there won’t be a lot of melting, but some of the snow is still going to disappear, even at subzero temperatures. By now nearly everyone knows the statistics. Since the 23rd of January more snow has […]
