A Note On Warm Season Updates

Hello everyone!

The active weather season is winding down here in Maine and as you may have noticed, blog updates are winding down accordingly. As summer approaches, I will be quieting the blog for a few months while I finish up school and track then head out to the woods for seven weeks to hike from Katahdin to the NH border. I’m stoked for this awesome adventure, but it does mean I will be away from the computer for a while so I will be unable to provide updates.

During the next few months, I encourage everyone to stay tuned to the NWS in Gray as well as local media for weather updates and I will be back intermittently between now and June 21st then again from August 10th to September 7th. September 8th means the start of the next school year and thus regular morning updates. The countdown to next winter is on!

Thanks for your continued support and understanding,

Jack

Showers And Storms Return Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature more clouds to start giving way to sunnier skies this afternoon with the possible exception of the coast where ocean clouds will likely stick around for a while. Showers are occurring this morning over the mountains/far north and will continue through the next few hours. Highs today rise into the 80s in the usual warm spots while the rest of the area sees highs in the 70s. Clearing skies this afternoon will be to destabilization of the atmosphere which will be to scattered showers and storms after around three storms will be strongest south of the frontal boundary which should set up along the southern coast. Once a cold front begins to approach this evening, storms will likely become more widespread before tapering off tonight.

Morning Clouds Giving Way To Afternoon Sun

Hello everyone!

Today will feature morning clouds across most of the area with the exception of the mountains giving way to sun south and clouds/showers north. The coastal stratus along the coast will burn off to sun in the afternoon for most though stratus will likely hang around along the immediate coast as well as the midcoast. Some drizzle is also possible in areas where coastal stratus hangs around. 

Up in the mountains, the day will be about half and half with the morning being the better half as sun gives way to increasing clouds and eventually showers as a front drops south. 

Temps will range from the low to mid 60’s inland to low to mid 50’s where coastal stratus hangs out into the afternoon.

More Of The Same Weather-Wise Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature more warm and sunny conditions as high pressure continues to sit over our area. Expect sunny skies and temps reaching the 70’s for most with the exception of the coast and mountains where temps will remain a bit cooler, in the upper 60’s.

A change in our weather is coming tomorrow as high pressure moves offshore and easterly winds begin to blow. Tomorrow, expect highs in the 60’s in the warm spots with temps near 50 at the coast. Low clouds and fog will begin to develop in the afternoon as well.

More Quiet Weather Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature more of the same weather wise with more sun and warm temps. Along with these lovely weather conditions comes fire danger and we are under a red flag warning from the NWS so hold off on the outdoor burning until we get some rain. Highs will be mainly in the low to mid 70’s however cooler temps can be expected in the mountains and at the coast where afternoon sea breezes will make their presence felt after around 1 this afternoon. 

Looking ahead to the weekend, a front looks to pass through the area Sunday which could set off some showers and storms but Saturday looks to be lovely.

Warm And Sunny Today

Hello everyone! 

Today will feature warm and sunny conditions as high pressure builds into the region. Expect temps to make it into the 70’s in the mountains and along the coast with 80’s in the favored warm spots. A sea breeze will develop this afternoon so along the coast, highs may only reach the high 60’s. The greatest threat for this will be along the midcoast.
