    Picture perfect weather continues today.

    Already 60F before noon, it’s going to be another great day here in southern Maine. There are several aspects of the weather of interest on this mid-April morning not least of which is the stunning day we are enjoying. April can be such a miserable month. There are years where it rains for days on […]

    One more warm day then those April showers arrive.

    Did you enjoy the weather yesterday? If you didn’t think yesterday was a flawless April day, I’m not sure how much better it could have been this time of the year. Porltand reached a high of 68F for one of the warmest days since last fall. It was even more impressive when you think about […]

    Feeling of spring on the way this weekend

    I’m sitting in my office with a winter hat on this morning. It’s cold in the house and while I could put the heat up further, I feel like it’s less about the actual temperature and more about the damp and raw feeling to the air this week. Portland and much of the area is […]

    April snow on the way, but so is milder weather

    A cold morning with a brisk breeze reminds us that it’s still early April. There were even more sub-zero readings in northern Maine earlier today. Temperatures right now are still only in the upper 30s. A series of fronts will act as the focal point for small areas of low pressure and associated precipitation through […]

    Record cold morning across parts of Maine.

    4 below zero, that’s the new record established this morning in Caribou. Not only was this a record for today, it also set a new benchmark chill for the month of April. Now, certainly Caribou isn’t close to Portland or southern Maine. You’d need to drive about 300 miles to get there. If you went […]

    Frustrating Pattern Of Cold and Wet Weather On The Way

    An unsettled period of weather, beginning with the showers this morning, is going to last for much of the upcoming week. While it’s not going to snow or rain the entire week, precipitation is in the forecast most days through the upcoming 7 to 9 days. The reason for the inclement weather will be a […]

    Passover-Easter Weekend Brings A Return To Chilly Weather

    You should enjoy today, because it’s going to be a while before we see this kind of warmth again. More snow melted my yard, although I still have a solid foot in most of the front and about 6 to 8 inches of it on the back. There will be significant snow loss through tomorrow […]

    April arrives on a chilly note

    April is here! The long cold month of March is behind us and it’s onto the 4th month. This is when average temperatures rise towards and even near 60 and the landscape finally takes on a more spring-like look. It’s going to take a bit more time, but bare ground will surely happen this month. […]

    March closes cold, but with little snow to show

    The amount of snow that officially fell in Portland this month was 2.4 inches, and that number is similar for much of southern Maine. This amount of snow is well below average and means we went the entire month without a major snow event. Amazingly, even with lower than average snowfall in December and March, the […]

    Brief Burst Of Balmy Air Later This Week

    It’s hard to imagine it’s going to be April in a couple of days. If you really want to understand just how different this part of the country is temperature-wise right now, check out the map of highs for Monday. Summertime warmth isn’t that far off in terms of miles, but it might as well […]
