    Highly Variable Snowfall Totals Over The Next Two Days

    There’s a lot of weather going on this evening and much of it is centered on very small scale features which are difficult to pinpoint.

    A chance of more snow this week, with cold a definite

    Over the weekend much of the area missed a big storm. While York County got hit hard, as did Down East Maine, the rest of the state skated by without much snow. Again today this is the case, as a storm passes safely out to sea to our south. However, this isn’t the end of […]

    A welcome break from the big snow

    Recently, I wrote about the ‘Great Snow of 1717,’ a series of four storms in 10 days. When that event was over, Cotton Mather recounted stories of up to 5 feet of snow in Maine in what was an unprecedented snow event. Fast forward almost exactly 300 years and we have seen something similar. What’s transpired […]
