PORTLAND — The calendar still says winter, but Maine is experiencing spring-like weather.

The National Weather Service says the temperature climbed to 60 degrees around 2 p.m. Thursday afternoon in Portland. The high for the date was 56, set two years ago.

Meteorologist Tom Hawley says the forecast calls for above-normal temperatures for the next two weeks, meaning “this is probably it for winter.”

The forecast calls for the temerpature to reach 50 degrees or higher during six of the next 10 days, the National Weather Service said.

As of now, Portland stands at 49.8 inches of snow for the season. That’s about 6 inches below normal, and it would’ve been lower without the early Halloween storm.

But winter weather remains a possibility after the balmy stretch. Portland saw 10 inches of snow during an April Fool’s storm last year.
