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.

A Pleasant And Quiet Day Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature generally quiet weather as high pressure builds in from the northwest. NW breezes will set up our favorite upslope/downslope pattern with overcast skies and flurries in the higher terrain, and mostly sunny skies downwind thereof. High temps will follow the typical upslope/downslope gradient, ranging from 20 in the north to 35 in the south.

Improving Weather Today

Hello everyone!

Our last storm has now moved off to the northeast, leaving us with clearing skies and drier conditions. I’ve seen some reports this morning of slick roads so if you’re headed out, be careful. Sunshine this afternoon outside of the mountains will quickly melt any residual black ice, with a light NW breeze helping to bring back dry pavement. High temps will range from 30 in the north to 45 in the south.

Small Winter Storm Arrives Today

Hello everyone!

A fairly small winter storm will be arriving today as low pressure moves through the Great Lakes. The system will be weakening as it approaches our area, so after an initial burst of moderate to heavy snow, expect lighter precip to quickly take over. Snow is already falling across SW NH, and it will expand to the northeast this morning. Precip types will become messy this afternoon and this evening before the system pulls away tonight.

As for precip types, the mountains will see a mostly snow event with only a brief changeover to freezing rain while the foothills see snow changing over to sleet and freezing rain much earlier. Only the coast is expected to see plain rain as cold air damming keeps surface temps cold even as warm air sneaks in aloft.

Snowfall totals will range from 3-6″ in the mountains to a coating along the shores of Penobscot Bay. High temps will range from around 30 in the north to 40 in the south.

Quiet Weather Continues Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature mainly clear skies as high pressure retains control of our weather. Temps will be on the warmer side, ranging from 30 in the north to 40 in the south as the strong March sun does its thing. Other than that, I don’t think there’s much to say about today’s weather. Get out and enjoy it!

More Quiet Weather Today

Hello everyone!

More quiet weather is expected today as a weak disturbances zips by well to our south. That system won’t bring any precip, but it will result in a few extra clouds this afternoon. Temps will be generally warmer compared to recent days, ranging from 20 in the north to 35 in the south. Get out and enjoy the beautiful late-winter weather before mud season arrives!

More Chilly Weather Today

Hello everyone!

Our cold airmass will stick around today as high pressure builds in from Canada. Today’s forecast looks in fact quite similar to yesterday’s with mainly sunny skies this morning giving way to a mix of sun and clouds later this afternoon. Those afternoon clouds will once again be of the puffy cumulus variety, and may drop some more snowflakes. As with yesterday, not everyone will see snow showers, and even those that do won’t pick up more than an inch of accumulation. High temps will range from 5 in the north to 25 in the south.

Unusually Cool Today

Hello everyone!

An unusually cool airmass will settle over the region today, especially in the middle part of the atmosphere. This will mean chilly temps and the chance for some snow showers to pop up in the afternoon as the sun tries to heat up the lower levels. Snow showers are most likely in the mountains, but could drift over just about any town in the area, bringing briefly low visibility and a quick coating-1″ of snow. Snow showers will dissipate after sundown when daytime heating is lost. High temps will range from 10 in the north to 25 in the south.
