I’m Jack Sillin, freshman at NYA, snow-lover, enjoyer of the outdoors, and of course, weather geek. My passion for weather began several years ago when I was about six years old on a series of long plane trips while watching countless hours of The Weather Channel. My skills have evolved rapidly in the past few years from excitedly refreshing the radar on the local TV weather page (I’m still guilty of that from time to time…) to waking early to analyze complex charts and graphs every day to produce a forecast. I’m hoping to pursue a career in the NWS someday. Aside from the weather, I’m a big skier and lover of all things cold and snow. I also like to do many other outdoor activities such as hiking and fishing when the snow is no longer around. I can be reached through twitter @JackSillin and via email at jack.sillin@gmail.com.

Disgusting Heat Continues

Hello everyone!

Today will feature more of the no-good, very-bad heat that we had yesterday. Temps will rise firmly into the “no thanks” territory, especially away from the coast, where a sea breeze will moderate conditions a bit this afternoon. Temps inland will once again rise to near 90 while at the coast, readings in the lower 80’s are expected. There’s a chance that an isolated shower or thunderstorm will pop up in the mountains today, but we continue to sit under a large ridge of high pressure and as a result, storm coverage will be widely scattered and storm intensity will be weak.

If you want to leave a comment expressing warm feelings for this heat, feel free to join the NYA XC team for interval training this afternoon before doing so. You will see your love of heat ripped right out of you, along with your lunch.

Our savior the cold front arrives in 72 hours!

Late Season Heat Wave Begins Today

Hello everyone!

The atmosphere appears to be a bit confused today as fall-like temperatures from the past couple of weeks give way to summer heat. Temperatures will rise into the upper 80’s or low 90’s for most today with slightly cooler temps in the low 80’s both in the far north and along the immediate coastline where a sea breeze will develop this afternoon. Sunny skies will be part of the fuel for the heat as little to no cloud cover is expected. There’s a slight chance of a late afternoon shower or thunderstorm in the far north where a very weak boundary will be located. Otherwise, dry conditions are expected across the area.

Warming Up Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature warmer weather as Jose drifts farther offshore and high pressure moves in from the west. Highs will rise into the mid 80’s across the coastal plain and foothills, with the immediate coast and northern areas both seeing cooler temps right around 80. Skies will be sunnier than today as Jose’s moisture is replaced by drier air from Canada. No precipitation is expected.

Still Near Jose Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature another day with Jose as that system continues to drift south of our area. Today’s Jose weather will be pretty similar to yesterday’s Jose weather. Temps will be mild, ranging from around 70 at the coast to around 75 in the mountains. NE winds will be breezy, gusting 25-30 mph at times. Skies will feature a mix of sun and clouds with more clouds than sun along the coast and vice versa up in the mountains. Mainly dry weather will prevail today, though a few coastal showers can’t be ruled out.

Sunnier Skies Arrive Today

Hello everyone!

After several days dominated by cloudy skies, sunshine will make a return today as Jose continues to weaken and move east. Highs will rise into the 70’s across the region as the warm sunshine is counteracted by slightly cooler air moving in from Canada on breezy N/NE winds. No precipitation is expected as drier air moves into the area.

Still Cool, Still Cloudy, And Still Humid Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature more cool temps, cloudy skies, and high humidity as Jose continues to sit to our south and east. Dry air from Canada will be battling it out with Jose’s tropical moisture, and as a result showers will be scattered, but heavy. Highs will be relatively uniform across the area with thick cloud cover, and temps a few degrees above or below 70 can be expected everywhere. Showers will be most plentiful near the coast, with inland areas likely staying dry for much of the day.

Cool, Humid, And Cloudy Today

Hello everyone!

Jose continues to move to our south today, and the thick clouds that continue to overspread our area are attributed to that system. Those clouds won’t be going anywhere too quickly today as Jose drifts slightly closer. Some scattered showers associated with Jose’s outermost rain bands are expected in southern Coastal Maine and southern New Hampshire, but impacts are generally going to be light as the worst of the storm stays well offshore. Clouds and cool northeast winds will keep temps down once again today with highs ranging from the mid 60’s along the coast to the mid 70’s in the north where some breaks of sun are possible.
