    Many Hours Of Snow Ahead, But Storm Won’t Be A Crippling One

    Your tolerance for snow and cold is going to continue to be tested over the next week. We have more snow this weekend which continues into late Monday night. This is followed by an increasing chance of near record cold for the Presidents Day Weekend. Snow is in the forecast from later this evening through […]

    Cold Friday, snow returns this weekend

    An active weather pattern will continue into next week although today is dry, sunny and cold. If you are dressed properly today, it will be an enjoyable one from the slopes to the woods to the lakes. Highs this afternoon will only be in the teens, but remain in the single numbers across the higher […]

    A Light Snowfall Thursday, Then Colder To End The Workweek

    I love numbers and there are a lot of them being thrown around right now. Some of these numbers are about snow already on the ground, others are about what’s coming. Let’s look at them both. I want to start up to Maine where the snowfall numbers are quite impressive. Eastport Maine Sets Record For […]

    Snow Continues To Fall Heavily

    Afternoon Update As I write this heavy snow is falling across much of southern Maine with 4-7 more inches before it’s all over before midnight. I think the end ends around 10PM in Portland and a bit later further east. The snow is very light in weight with temperatures about as cold as they get […]

    February Begins Where January Left Off

    Afternoon Update Snow is still in the card for tomorrow. When the snow does begin it’s going to quickly become heavy and fall at rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour. This will make traveling very difficult for much of the morning and into the afternoon before the storm winds down late in the […]

    A Small Amount Of Snow Overnight

    On this Friday evening I wanted to update the blog from this morning. I have to confess I was quite nervous about forecasting such a small amount of snow for most areas, but it appears it will work out quite close. If we see and inch or two of snow overnight the totals in Portland […]

    Another snowstorm For Maine

    A new storm is about to affect Maine and a winter storm warning has been posted for the entire state. The storm comes in two waves. First, a low-pressure system will move from south and west of the region to a position off the New England coastline. At this point the storm will gain intensity […]

    A Few More Inches To Go, But The Storm Is Winding Down

    As we approach 5PM the worst of the storm is now behind us. It won’t be over for several more hours, but you could start cleaning up if you are OK with having a few more inches to do in the morning. Currently, the radar shows bands of snow moving in from the ocean and […]

    What’s causing Maine’s current nor’easter?

    One question you might ask during this major storm is how and why did this form? If you saw a forecast as recently as Friday, meteorologists thought this storm would stay mostly out to sea, obviously that isn’t the case. Let me explain why the storm formed and then why it’s hitting and moving so […]

    Big snowfall for coastal and interior Maine begins late tonight

    It’s a waiting game at this point. There’s no way we aren’t going to see a major storm, it’s just a question of how major. I don’t think this is going to be a top five storm for Portland as the heaviest amount of precipitation looks like it will stay just to our south. Storms like this […]
