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.

Cooler With Showers Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature cooler temps and increased chances for rain as a weak storm system drifts nearby. Highs will range from 50 in the mountains to a little below 60 near Augusta, where a few breaks of sun are possible this morning before overcast takes over. Rain will arrive in the area from SW to NE this morning, and radar imagery shows some drops already falling over parts of NH. While much of the day will be wet, this won’t be a soaker of a storm, and there are likely to be some dry hours here and there as forcing from this system remains weak and disorganized.

Rain will move out tomorrow morning.

A Spring Stunner Today

Hello everyone!

High pressure has slid off to our east this morning, which will set up some warm SSW winds for today. This will be the culminating day of our stretch of beautiful spring weather before rain arrives tomorrow. Skies today will be mostly sunny, with the exception of some high clouds filtering in ahead of the aforementioned storm system. Highs will range from the mid 60’s north to the low 70’s south, with the coolest temps, in the 50’s, confined to the peninsulas of the midcoast where winds will have more of an onshore component. No precip is expected until tomorrow when rain will arrive from SW-NE.

Another Beautiful Spring Day Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature the third in our stretch of four beautiful spring days as high pressure continues to be the dominant force acting on our weather. Look for skies to remain sunny today as highs rise up into the low 50’s north and low 60’s south. Cooler temps will be found along the immediate coastline, where a sea breeze circulation will develop this afternoon. Tis the season!

A Beautiful Spring Day Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature a beautiful Spring day across all parts of Western Maine and New Hampshire. Temps will climb into the 50’s region wide, with the exception of only the far northern mountains. Some places in Southern NH and SW ME could touch 60! Skies will remain sunny across the area as a powerful high pressure system moves overhead. NW breezes will gradually taper off as that high moves in.

Quiet Weather Today With Continued Cool Temps

Hello everyone!

Today will feature sunny skies across most of the area outside the mountains, along with continued cooler than normal temperatures for this time of year. Highs will rise into the upper 30’s north and low 50’s south, with northwesterly breezes keeping any marine circulations at bay. No precipitation is expected. Enjoy the beautiful day!

Familiar Upslope/Downslope Pattern Emerges Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature a pattern familiar to anyone who’s followed along with my forecasts for a while. Northwest winds will drive an upslope/downslope precipitation and sky cover configuration today, with mostly cloudy skies and upslope snow showers in the mountains and clearer skies in the south. High temps will also feel the influence of this pattern, with mid 30’s expected in the mountains and low 50’s along the coast. While the coast will remain mostly dry, some of the mountain showers may drift southeastward and bring briefly wet conditions later this afternoon into the early part of the evening.

Seasonable With Clouds And The Chance Of Rain Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature seasonable temps, overcast skies, and the chance for rain showers this afternoon. A coastal low is trying to get its act together off the Mid Atlantic coast, and while the upper level pattern is unfavorable for any significant development of this system, it will pass close enough to our region to bring everyone an overcast day, and areas in Southern NH and along the coast some rain showers this afternoon/evening. Look for highs in the upper 30’s in the mountains, where the airmass will be cooler, as well as in Southern NH where the steadiest precipitation will occur. Farther north and east, highs will reach the mid 40’s in places like Rockland and Augusta as a few breaks of sunshine this morning will help heat things up.
