    All of Maine is now in abnormally dry status.

    This time of year, at times, it actually can take me a bit longer to think about what to write in the blog. I mean, in winter it becomes obvious because so many of you are interested in the cold and snow. Most of the spring, summer or fall, we don’t tend to have big […]

    Quick changes in the weather over the next day

    Cool marine air greeted us this morning with temperatures in the 40s to lower 50s and a touch of drizzle. We are going to see some rapid changes over the next 12 hours with a burst of warm air followed by cooler Canadian air for the weekend. This morning a warm front is moving northward […]

    Stellar begining of May roles on into the weekend

    What a May so far. I know we are only on our 6th day of the month, but the past few days have been so wonderful, it certainly helps remind everyone why Maine is such a great place when the weather is warm. Of course, ice fishing, skiing and snowmobiling are wonderful as well. There […]

    A taste of summer to start the work week.

    The birds are really loud at 5AM this time of year and getting up early isn’t a problem. I find myself going to sleep before 9PM so I can enjoy all the hours of daylight. We have a warmer day for everyone today, especially those of you who live along the coast. Portland barely reached […]

    A cool end the work week, but warmer this weekend.

    May has arrived. I imagine if you had a lot of damage during the winter to your house then the effects of the season are still lingering. However, with the leaves starting to take over and temperatures warming, the snow and cold of January, February and March are now fading into our collective memories. April […]

    There is an end to the cool and damp pattern and it starts this weekend

    The showers of earlier this morning have not pushed off the coast. While there could be a sprinkle or light shower the rest of the day, we are basically looking at a cool, cloudy day with a persistent northeasterly flow off the water. This pattern will continue through Friday, but then a change in the […]

    Some showers today, better second half of the week.

    The final week of April will be a typical one. You’ll notice temperatures on the cooler side of average, but not by much, along with a few showers. This morning I want to start the blog by showing you a satellite loop. I always tell students to loop the weather when you can because it […]

    Cool and sometimes unsettled weather closes out April

    There are numerous showers with some embedded downpours this morning over central Maine as a storm system over southern Canada moves slowly north. To the south, clearing skies are ushered in behind this same system as the showers ended in the pre-dawn hours. In the mountains there was some snow overnight. Our weather pattern has […]

    Heaviest rain has ended, but showers linger

    Heavy rain has now lifted north of Greater Portland with lingering showers still possible this morning over southern sections and much of the day east of Rockland. A frontal system that divides the cool marine air from milder air continue to push north. The overall weather system has brought a lot of rain to the […]

    Some sun and some rain this weekend, more significant rain next week.

    I’ll get to the weather in a minute, but first, did you see the new Star Wars trailer yet? I remember the summer of 1977 when my parents took me to the new film. That initial scene when the words scrolled across the screen horizontally in a way I had never seen before was pretty […]
