Warm air on the way

Hello everyone!

Today will feature the return of reasonable temp with highs in the 30’s across the state. In addition to that, there will be few clouds in the sky so today should be pretty good weather wise. Our next chance for precip should arrive Sunday with some rain. Our next chance for snow could arrive Wednesday.

Arctic air retreats

Hello everyone!

Our weather for the next few days holds promise for those who dislike the cold as the extreme cold moves north and east. Temps will not deserve ‘warm’ but they sure will feel comfy after last week. Despite current temps in the 10’s, we make it above 20 today under sunny skies so no complaining here. Our next chance for light snow/mixed precip arrives this weekend.

Cold returns

Hello everyone!

Today will feature the beginning of a brief arctic outbreak that will last until Friday. Highs will be in the 10’s and lows will be in the single digits. Partly cloudy skies will dominate both today and the rest of the week with a few more clouds on Friday in advance of our next weather maker. I see no big storms in sight as of now.

Light rain/freezing rain/sleet/snow today

Hello everyone!

Sorry for the late update again! Still not feeling great and woke up about 10 minutes ago. Today will be one f those ‘all of the above’ days in terms of precip. A very strong arctic front will move through with rain, freezing rain, sleet, and snow and location will determine your precipitation type this morning but as the front passes through, everyone changes to snow with light accumulations possible. Temps will be in the upper 20’s and lower 30’s for most this morning with gusty S winds. As the front moves through over the course of the afternoon, everyone drops into the 20’s and changes over to snow. I see no big storms in sight ¬†we return to seasonable or just below average temps this week.

Bitter cold continues

Hello everyone!

Sorry about the lateness of the update this morning. Forced to take a day off from school because I’m not feeling too great so I slept in. In any case, the bitter cold that has been affecting the region for the past few days will continue today with temps in the 0’s 0r 10’s above/below 0 depending on location. However, for those who dislike the cold, there is relief in sight. A warm front will bring temps into the upper 20’s/lower 30’s on Saturday however, at least in the state of Maine, breaking the freezing mark is unlikely. As with any large temperature shift, precipitation in the form of snow will accompany this ‘warmth’. Amounts should be light in the 1-3″ range. A strong arctic front will reintroduce light snow Sunday into Monday. Temps will be a tad more seasonable next week with highs in the lower 20’s and lows near 0.

Bitter cold today

Today and tomorrow will feature extremely cold air and light winds as well. Highs will top out around 10 inland and around 15 at the coast. Winds will only be blowing at 10-15 mph however that is just enough for wind chills to fall below -20 at the coast and -40 inland. Bundle up!! The cold stays put until Saturday when strong southerly winds bring in comparatively mild air. Temps on Saturday could flirt with 30 degrees. Along with the warmth comes some light snow which shouldn’t accumulate too much however slick travel is possible. Temps plunge back down to current levels for next week.

Cold air says locked in place through the weekend

Hello everyone!

Oops! The storm just stayed too far offshore so as a result, we got nothing. Oh well! this storm will have at least one effect on our weather though, winds will change direction as it moves offshore and NW winds will bring in some cooler air. It will be pretty chilly this week with highs in the 10’s and lows in the -10’s. Cold air will stay until the weekend when SW winds bring in warmer air. However, it is highly unlikely we get above freezing. I see no big storms in the forecast for this week or next.
