Strong Cold Front Sweeps Through The Region Today

Hello everyone!

On the last day of climatological summer, mother nature is getting ready to change seasons. A strong cold front will blast through the region today as low pressure intensifies in Quebec. Winds will turn northwesterly behind this front and cold air will begin to pour in. There may be a scattered shower or two along the front itself but given the already dry airmass in place, no organized thunderstorm activity is expected. Downsloping NW winds will push temps into the mid 70’s along the coastal plains. Cooler temps in the mid 60’s are expected in the north. Skies will feature a mix of sun and clouds as the moisture-starved front moves throguh.

By tomorrow, the cold air will be deeply settled into the area and highs are only expected to reach the 50’s in the north and low 60’s south! As a bonus, upslope showers may fall in the form of snow across the Presidential range of NH. Snowfall accumulation of a trace to 1″ is expected through Friday afternoon at elevations above 5,000 feet. Winter is coming!

Mild And Dry Today

Hello everyone!

A powerful nor’easter is developing well to our south and east this morning and we’re on the far NW edge of that system. Too far NW to see any rain, but not too far to escape its cloud shield. We’ll start off the day with these clouds but they’re likely to move out as we head into the evening hours. The developing sunshine will be enough to boost temps up into the high 60’s north and mid 70’s south. Enjoy the warmth while you can, a strong cold front is in the forecast for tomorrow!

A Few Clouds Today

Hello everyone!

Not much is going on weatherwise in Maine. We have more dry weather, mostly sunny skies, and cool temps. Highs today will range through the 60’s with warmer temperatures in the northeastern part of the area. This is where with the sunniest areas will be today as a strong storm well to our south spreads a bit of high cloud cover into our area. Other than those clouds and some waves that will arrive tomorrow, the storm will not impact this area.

Even More Quiet Weather

Hello everyone!

Remember yesterday’s mostly sunny skies and cool temps? Today will be the exact same, except perhaps for the fact that temperatures may be a degree or two warmer. Mostly sunny skies will continue to rule the area as strong Canadian high pressure remains locked in place. Highs will range from the mid 60’s north to the low 70’s south with continued dry humidity.

While our weather is quiet up here, there’s a lot going on in Texas with Tropical Storm Harvey bringing devastating flooding to the Houston area. Here are some links to track the storm if you’re interested, provided by weather.us:

More Quiet Weather

Hello everyone!

Exactly nothing is going to happen weatherwise in Maine/NH today. Look for more sunny skies, light winds, and pleasantly cool temperatures with highs generally in the 60’s. Some low 70’s are expected in the south.

More Cool/Quiet Weather Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature more of the same weatherwise across the area. NW breezes will continue to funnel cool and dry air into the region with highs only getting up to the mid 60’s north and mid 70’s south. Skies will be sunnier in the south and cloudier in the north as our upslope/downslope pattern continues.

While our weather is quiet up here, there’s a lot going on in the Gulf with Hurricane Harvey. Here are some links to track the storm if you’re interested, provided by weather.us:

Cool And Quiet Today

Hello everyone!

More cool and quiet weather is on the way for today. Highs will range from the mid 60’s north to the mid 70’s south with NW breezes. NW breezes mean we’re stuck in a classic upslope downslope pattern. Look for more clouds than sun in the mountains and the opposite along the coast.

Cool/Dry Weather Settles In

Hello everyone!

We’re heading into a pattern of cool and dry weather as a cold front continues to move well offshore. Look for highs today to rise into the 70’s for almost everyone with the cooler temps up in the north and the warmer temps down by the coast. Skies will vary from mostly cloudy in the north with upslope flow to mostly sunny in the south with downslope flow. We’ll be mainly dry except maybe for a few brief showers up in the mountains.

Enjoy the lovely weather!

Drying Out Today

Hello everyone! 

Today will feature the arrival of a much drier airmass as a cold front has moved offshore. Look for westerly breezes to kick in this morning and continue through the day. Temps will rise into the 70’s north and low 80’s south, but the bigger story will be the fall of the dew points, which will fall from the upper 60’s this morning into the upper 40’s this afternoon. The lower humidity will certainly be a welcome reprieve! It’s expected to last, too, as we enter a prolonged stretch of cool and dry weather heading into early September.

Hot And Humid Today

Hello everyone!

All good things must, at least temporarily, come to an end, and our recent stretch of beautifully cool/dry weather is no exception. Hot and humid weather will return today as a cold front approaches from the west. Look for highs to soar well into the 80’s for most with the only folks getting to enjoy milder temps in the 70’s residing along the midcoast. While most of the day will be dry, the combination of an approaching cold front and the oppressive heat/humidity will drive the threat for showers and thunderstorms this evening and especially into tonight. While most storms will be weakening as they rumble in our direction, a few severe wind gusts can’t be ruled out, especially across western NH. The timing for those would be late tonight.

Much cooler and drier weather will triumphantly sweep into the region on breezy NW winds tomorrow as our cold front sweeps offshore. Get ready for an entire week of temps in the 70’s with low humidity and full sun. Just about perfect for this time of year!
